beyerdynamic Release Amiron Home Headphones
The undisputed experts in headphones with more than 90 years' experience have recongised the demand for high-quality headphones outside the studio or live arena in more recent years.
From the flagship DT 1990 PRO StereoNET reviewed recently, it's clearly obvious this brand is not afraid to deliver premium sound, even finer materials and technology, and pitch it at the discerning head-fi enthusiast. The rise of the brand's popularity outside the traditional pro market is evidence what they are doing is certainly working.
The latest release is the Amiron home edition, an open backed headphone with all the tonal quality of their higher offerings, but with a focus on comfort and importantly, an easy to drive 250-ohm transducer that should see compatibility with smartphones and tablets.
Wayne Farran, National Sales & Marketing Manager at Syntec told StereoNET:
When music truly touches the listener, when it sends shivers down the spine and conveys the sense of being right there at the concert or club, you know you’re listening to the new Amiron home.
According to beyerdynamic, their engineers focused on the development and refinement of both the build quality and materials used to get a better wearing comfort. Every last detail of the handcrafted Amiron home has been comprehensively designed and tested for durability.
The placement of an additional fabric in front of the multilayer compound calotte reduces high-frequency resonances. In addition, the acoustic transducers are dampened on the rear to ensure an even more balanced frequency response in the mid-range; a new ear pad filling material has also been used too effectively increase bass precision. All in all, this adds up to a warm, stress-free sound with fascinating spaciousness – as intoxicating as in a live concert.
Amiron home features soft microfiber velour earpads that are said to be temperature balancing and moisture regulating.
They're supplied with a 3-meter connection cable that is detachable at each earcup, without soldered joints at the Y-adaptor. A single continous cable runs from the gold-plated jack to ensure longevity and reliability.
beyerdynamic Amiron home headphones are available from this month for $999 RRP.
