Compact Tesla sound

Like its award-winning predecessor T 50 p* the focus for design of the T 51 p is delivering unrivalled sound quality. With new and improved drivers the headphones deliver in an inspiring way – right from the first moment. A particularly deep bass response and transparent, clear highs are apparent from the T 51 p due to the common properties that make all Tesla headphones so special: high efficiency and low distortion. The result: a clear, powerful sound across the entire frequency range, even at low levels. The closed design of the T 51 p also isolates external noise very effectively.
Further information about Tesla Technology Completely re-engineered transducers (drivers) based on a neodymium ring magnet with optimized magnetic field characteristics. This combination creates a magnetic field inside the transducer which is far stronger (> 1,2 Tesla - measuring unit for magnetic flux density - with current headphones the strength of the magnetic field is < 0,65 Tesla) than in standard headphones. Because of this increased magnetic field, the voice coil is more compact but still provides a very high degree of efficiency. The membrane, consisting of a 3 layer "compound foil", delivers an extremely precise frequency response and guarantees, in collaboration with the strong magnet, a transparent and distortion free sound..

High quality and elegant looks

The shiny beyerdynamic logo on the housing caps stands in sharp contrast with the brushed metal surfaces of the ear-cups. The cable has also been improved to be more stable and has a satin finish which results in less cable noise. A light champagne tone lends the headphones a very elegant appearance and raises the T 51 p above the plastic monotony of most – even more expensive – headphones with its all-metal construction.

Perfect to wear

With its metal fully-adjustable headband and swivelling earcups the T 51 p fits perfectly on your head and confirms beyerdynamic’s long-established reputation for producing headphones  with excellent wearing comfort. The ear pads made of super-soft synthetic leather fit the contour of the outer ear thanks to its viscoelastic filling (a memory foam).

Practical, even when traveling

Thanks to the swivelling earcups the T 51 p folds up compactly and fits in the included rugged nylon carry case. A high-quality 6.35 mm adapter is included for listening on premium hi-fi equipment or headphone amplifiers, an airplane adapter is also included so you can enjoy a superior experience of in-flight entertainment.

With the T 51 p Tesla portable headphone (...) and the perfectly appropriate A 200 p headphone amplifier (...) beyerdynamic, the expert for headphones, headsets and microphones, provides a good looking pair for a total price of about 550 Euro.

[...]

The T 51 p has the quality seal “Made in Germany” and you will notice this, the material and the manufacturing quality are very good. Due to the padded headband the headphone is very comfortable and due to the closed design ambient noise is excellently attenuated. Visually the shining beyerdynamic logo was discreetly integrated on the matt brushed outer sides of the ear cups. The metal headband can be adapted in 12 steps to fit the head optimally. The ear pads made of extra soft leatherette are fortunately not too sweaty and extremely comfortable. Due to the rotating housing shells the T 51 p can be folded and stored in the supplied, rugged nylon bag. Due to the enclosed in-flight adapter and the 1/4” adapter (6.25 mm) the T 51 p can be used whether travelling or at home.

[...]

With the combination of the A 200 p and T 51 p beyerdynamic provides an excellent combination of a portable hi-fi headphone and an excellent matching high end headphone amplifier. “High end“ despite the comparatively low price.  (...) For less than 600 Euro you receive a “team” with great features for jazz and classical music. Those who prefer this music style, will not get anything else for a lower price.

From the Swabian Heilbronn there is a serious proposal on how to generate high-end sound from contemporary mobile devices. The minimised A 200 p headphone amplifier and Digital-Analogue-Converter and the compact T 51 p headphone from beyerdynamic ensure the preparation of high-quality music and serve as a mobile audiophile dream team.

[...]

With a weight of 183 grams the T 51 on-ear headphone provides a solid fit and sits comfortably even after a long time. Its headband pressure of 2.5 Newtons derives from a stainless steel strap, the gimbal and a twelvefold screening of the capsules enclosed by brushed aluminium leave enough variance so that the soft, smooth ear pads are pleasant for different sizes of ears. Advantage of the closed design: The ear cups strongly attenuate ambient noise; vice versa they hardly let sound penetrate to the outside. The T 51 is a socially compatible headphone.

[...]

A first audio test with the T 51 p at a regular headphone output of an iPhone shows its subtle, natural character. As it is a closed, dynamic headphone its stage is naturally narrower, more central (...). Highs are silky, mids shine through more balanced and bass is heard powerful and strong, but always well-formed.

[...]

An extremely complex title such as "Lezghinka" (...), makes the potential of the beyerdynamic chain flourish.

[...]

On the other hand, the A 200 catches depth and difference, the voices of the instrument groups sound clean, coherent and consistent individually perceptible. The bass becomes drier with a more precise contour; the brass sounds fuller and the percussion harmoniously blends in. An inherent tension builds up and holds the tonal piece together.

The balanced and rich sound is one of the basic characteristics attracting attention from the very first moment when starting the track. A powerful bass reaches deep sounds and is reproduced clean, being quite vibrant. Contrabasses show a deep warmth and in the rock and pop area impulsive sounds such as bass drums and a briefly stopped bass are convincing.

[...]

Instruments clearly stand out from one another and do not compete with each other. The highs are drawn brilliantly and give the sound enough air. (...)."

It’s like painting a “picture” of music

The robust metal material implies a powerful appearance and tough resistance. The sophisticated design combines functionality with an almost artistic, elegantly curved form of the yoke of the ear cup.

[...]

The champagne-coloured ear cup can be swivelled giving additional vertical flexibility to ensure an excellent and comfortable adaption to the ear.

[...]

(...) The T 51 p sounded so balanced that the testers forgot they were wearing only an on-ear headphone. Bill Callahan’s “Ride My Arrow” sounded so grandiose and rich.

[...]

The T 51 p gave the music enough room so that even subtle information such as background noise was heard. The same applies to “Amen” by Leonhard Cohen (“Old Ideas”): Here the T 51 p painted a calm and gentle “picture” of the music. The mids were balanced and clean, the bass dry and the highs calm and relaxed. The T 51 p always reproduced Cohen’s striking voice and the vocals of the female background singers neutrally and precisely.

Price/performance ratio: Very good

For the money spent you receive good value. The design alone, which somehow appears to be classic, but when you look at it closer, it is very modern.  Plus the solid quality. Even when you do not put the T 51 p on your head, you do not want to put it aside, because its metal feels so strong, its pads feel so soft and its yokes move so smoothly.  Nevertheless, you will not hold the T 51 p in your hands that often, because it fits perfectly on the head. The soft ear pads attach gently to the ears and remain comfortable even when wearing for a longer period of time. The light weight of just 174 g helps that the small beyerdynamic headphone always sits comfortably.  

[...]

And when you listen with this small T-model, you will hardly put it down. It really is astonishing how much of the sound of beyerdynamic’s big models can be achieved with the small T 51 p. It sounds really great and opens up a large stage. Typical for beyerdynamic: the headphone acts very dynamic with a fine resolution and provides a deep bass which is quite remarkable for a headphone of this brand. Although this tuning is very rich and full for beyerdynamic, even the lowest frequencies remain extremely agile and outlined. Despite the closed design, the impressive depth and the very regular volume levels, it is remarkable that the T 51 p does not build up unpleasant pressure in the bass response.

Rating: Silver class, good-very good

We have found two current models, both have much of what you wish for: High-quality workmanship, trendy looks, superb sound and excellent manufacturers.

(...) and the T 51 p differentiate from the mass of on-ear headphones not only because of their very good sound, but also because of the excellent workmanship and high-quality materials. The headband is made of flexible yet sturdy metal and leather pads ensure a pleasant comfort of wearing. The ear pads are also made of soft leather. The ear cups can swivel and adapt optimally to the ear.
