Consider this headphone if: you’ve been looking for a high-resolution headphone that gets the midrange right but avoids excessive treble edge or splash. Also consider the T5p if you have yearned for a true high-end headphone that can be driven to satisfying volume levels by iPods, iPhones or other low-powered devices
Look further if: strong bass weight or the ultimate in bass extension are at the top of your priority list. At the other end of the audio spectrum, note that the T5p delivers a smooth but decidedly treble-forward sound, meaning the T5p is not the best choice for those who find even trace amounts of brightness objectionable.
