Beyerdynamic has added a new open-back design to its premium line of over-the-ear headphones. Hand-crafted in Germany, the Amiron home uses the company's Tesla technology with dynamic transducers that have a 250-ohm impedance and a nominal SPL of 102 dB. Design elements include ear pads made from soft microfiber velour, yokes made from solid aluminum, decorative rings made from die-cast aluminum, and a detachable 3m cable. The Amiron home will be available in November for $699.
Premium audio specialist beyerdynamic has unveiled the Amiron home. The successor to the legendary T 90 features the brand's coveted Tesla technology, with tonal precision leaving the listener with nothing left to do but sit back, relax, and enjoy the music.
Warm, intoxicating sound with a live atmosphere feel
An additional fabric in front of the multi-layer compound calotte reduces high-frequency resonances. The acoustic transducers are dampened on the rear to ensure a balanced frequency response in the mids. A new, acoustically effective ear pad filling material increases bass precision. Together, these allow for a warm, stress-free sound with fascinating spaciousness--as intoxicating as a live concert.
The open headphones are the ideal partner for a high-quality hi-fi system, or a headphone amplifier. Additionally, the 250-ohm transducers deliver a sufficiently high output level through a tablet or portable device.
Optimum wearing comfort and workmanship, handmade in Germany
Every last detail of the hand-crafted Amiron home has been comprehensively designed and tested for durability. A three-meter-long connection cable is detachable on both sides, with no soldering joints at the Y-adapter. The new, highly flexible twin wire is fed through as a single unit--from the gold-plated jack plug with screw adapter for large 6.35mm jacks through to the Tesla transducers.
Ear pads made from velvety soft microfiber velour have temperature-balancing and moisture-regulating effects to ensure the highest level of comfort. Yokes made from solid aluminum and decorative rings made from die-cast aluminum complete the elegant appearance.
The premium headset will be available at a price of $699 in November through authorized dealers and on www.beyerdynamic.com.
