The world’s first high-end Tesla headphones with Bluetooth

Uncompromising sound without wires: beyerdynamic has displayed the world’s first high-end Tesla headphones with Bluetooth transmission featuring the aptXTM HD standard in Berlin (hall 1.2, booth 204) from the 2nd to 7th September. This functional design study is the result of co-operation with Astell&Kern. It pushes the Korean manufacturer’s players to their limits and also makes Bluetooth interesting for more discerning listeners.

The Qualcomm aptX HD audio codec is the first to be able to transmit high-resolution signals without any losses. More dynamic scope and minimal background noise ensure an audio quality that was previously inconceivable with Bluetooth headphones. Ideal conditions for the exclusive Tesla transducers from beyerdynamic: Their responsiveness, paired with high efficiency, raise the whole potential of high-resolution recordings. The circumaural design, however, has even more to offer: There are no more buttons. Instead, a touchpad on the headphone housing controls playback – completely intuitively with a simple flick of the finger.

Also new and already available after the trade fair are the mobile headsets in the Byron series. The launch of the product range includes three models, from the wired “Byron” in-ear model for €49 to the wireless “Byron BTA” deluxe version with aptX and AAC codec (€199). They all feature high-quality workmanship and solid aluminium housings.

Professional users, who have always been a core target group of the audio specialist from Heilbronn, Germany, will enjoy discovering the DT 1990 PRO studio headphone at the beyerdynamic booth. As a top model in the PRO line, it is designed for mixing and mastering in recording studios. Its open-back design with the latest generation of Tesla transducers delivers absolute precision and reproducible results every time, whether on the user’s own mixing console or on site with the customer.
