(High-end Headphones Review) beyerdynamic T5 3rd Generation: If you like a spacious and deep sound field representation, this might not be a bad idea.

It's not bad if you like rich midrange expression with a relaxed sound, but it's not as full as I thought it would be because the sound is not thick enough. The vocals are also kind of gloomy and lacking in energy, with a hint of darkness,…
