beyerdynamic – from cinema speakers to microphones and headphones

The audio specialist beyerdynamic, based in Heilbronn, Germany, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of headphones and microphones.

beyerdynamic History

The “Elektronische Fabrik Eugen Beyer” has existed since the mid-1920s and, as a German manufacturer, offers high-quality microphones and headphones. For a long time, beyerdynamic headphones were considered the reference, and even today, with significantly increased competition, the employees from Heilbronn know how to hold their own on the international market time and time again.

But let’s rewind time for a moment: the first dynamic headphones appeared in 1937 with the DT 48 – a technology that is still used in most headphones today. The acronym “DT” stands for “Dynamic Telephone”, by the way, and all PRO models still bear this designation today. According to their own information, the DT 48 series was built almost unchanged until 2013 and is probably one of the longest available products in the history of consumer electronics.

How good are beyerdynamic headphones?

beyerdynamic headphones are still among the best headphones you can buy in the studio sector.

The open back model DT 990 PRO (to the review) and the closed back counterpart DT 770 PRO (to the review) can be found in almost every recording studio in the world.

But also in the hi-fi high-end segment, the Heilbronn-based company has set more than just a distinctive scent mark with the Tesla T1 headphones, the T5 as well as with the XELENTO remote (to the review) and the XELENTO wireless (to the review), which is also proven by our awards.

The fact that beyerdynamic does not rely on its classics is also shown by the more recent developments in the gaming headset sector. For example, the beyerdynamic MMX 300 is one of the best gaming headsets on the market.
