Our Take

The midrange and treble response of the Astell&Kern T5p 2nd gen are smooth and detailed, but take a backseat to that powerful bass. This new edition comes with a very nice cable with several adapters, and comes in a handy travel case. The T5p is a fairly easy to drive headphone, but still benefits from a low-output-impedance amplifier like our Gilmore Lite mk2 or portable Pico Power, to keep that big bass nicely controlled and punchy.


beyerdynamic + Astell&Kern

AK T5p 2nd Generation is the latest collaboration between beyerdynamic – the renowned German manufacturer with almost 100 years of headphone-making heritage – and Astell&Kern, market leader in premium portable music players.

A closed-back design, the AK T5p 2nd Generation is tuned for optimal audio performance with Astell&Kern’s portable players, providing peerless clarity across all frequencies, plus excellent bass reinforcement. It uses high-efficiency Tesla Technology, and comes with an audiophile-grade 2.5mm 99.8% pure silver and OCC hybrid detachable balanced headphone cable.

The headphones, which are handmade in Germany, also feature high-quality ear pads to provide excellent comfort- even for long listening sessions. We increased the perfection of the product with black metal faceplate.

Tesla Technology

Thanks to Tesla technology, the cutting-edge innovation from beyerdynamic, our hi-fi headphones are equipped with new sound transducers that have the power of more than one Tesla. Due to the higher efficiency, the low-impedance sound transducers of the T5p reach the full sound potential, even with low-output devices such as smartphones, tablets, and high-resolution players. Additionally, the tilted shape of the sound transducers produces a fascinatingly spatial and transparent sound – for a dynamic and authentic musical experience.

4N pure silver and 7N OCC Copper hybrid 2.5mm 4-pole cable

The cable Included with – and designed and tuned especially for – the Astell&Kern AK T5p 2nd Generation is a very special headphone cable – an 8 conductor wire of awesome sound. It’s made with 4N pure silver with silver plated 7N OCC to deliver the high in this combination; and the 7N OCC to bring the low. This hybrid construction of pure silver, silver OCC and OCC litz creates a unique harmony and is the finishing touch to the AK T5p’s excellence. No more sharp highs or too much bass: bring perfect balance to your music with this unique cable.
