Beyerdynamic T1 (3rd Generation)
This third generation Beyerdynamic T1 is the open-back version of its high-end over-ear flagship models. These headphones are completely built by hand in Germany. Compared to its predecessor, the design has been slightly revised and offers a more robust build on crucial structural elements. The most important change is, however, the applied Tesla driver.
Due to its ultra-light diaphragm, Tesla drivers reveal loads of important transient information, crucial for a lifelike sound reproduction. The applied drivers in this Beyerdynamic T1 deliver a broad frequency response ranging from 5Hz up to 50kHz. Both drivers are placed at a slight angle and deliver both a wide, open soundstage and a highly detailed sound. With an impedance of just 32 Ohms and a sensitivity of 100dB at 1mW these third generation T1 headphones are much easier to drive. Compared to the previous model, this third T1 generation delivers a tad more low-end pressure to add a hint of warmth to its neutral and somewhat analytical character.
The look and feel of these third-generation headphones is most luxurious. The new applied color scheme is anthracite and the wearing comfort is unparalleled. These headphones feature interchangeable and breathable velour ear cushions filled with memory foam. The use of anodized brushed aluminum, stainless steel and the fine Italian Alcantara headband reflects pure craftsmanship. These headphones come with a detachable high-purity OCC 7N copper headphone cable with a length of 3 meters, a 3.5mm to 6.35mm adapter and a velour finished hard case.
