Designed as an introductory model to beyerdynamic's premium headphone line, the open back design of the DT 440 gives a true sense of ambience. Extremely well balanced sound, suitable for any music that requires that extra responsive dynamic punch--whether you are into pop, jazz, soul or dance. The DT 440's powerful bass end and extended highs make for a lively and detailed audio experience. The 90 degree swiveling earcups and softer yet sturdy materials for the headband and the ear pads ensure outstanding levels of comfort. The fold-away design makes it easy to store and transport. Thanks to its German engineering, the DT 440 looks as good as it performs.
Open, On-Ear Design with Swiveling Earcups - The DT 440 features an open-back circumaural (over-the-ear) design for rich audio performance that's designed for critical listening. The open design of the headphones allows increased fidelity to the original recording and a more natural sound stage. The driver design of the DT 440 gives your music full reign, with natural response and crisp linearity. You'll hear every note, every beat, and every detail just as the artist originally intended.
The ultra-soft earcups are ideal for extended periods of wear, so you can enjoy an entire concert (or two) in complete comfort. An adjustable headband lets you achieve the perfect fit, and the earcups swivel a full 90 degrees for listening and positioning convenience.
Dynamic Transducer for Increased Fidelity and Performance - Without exception, beyerdynamic manufactures the dynamic transducer systems that go into their headphones in-house. From the magnet and diaphragm to the careful wiring and circuitry, beyerdynamic controls quality at all levels of manufacturing, ensuring superior engineering in their headphones down to the smallest detail.
An extremely strong neodymium magnet system offers the DT 440 highly detailed sound reproduction quality, is mechanically very robust, and needs only a small amount of operating voltage which increases efficiency. This increased efficiency also leaves the DT 440 with greater power reserves for dynamic, undistorted sound that especially compensates well for low-spec mobile devices such as portable media players that often can't perform at the same level as dedicated home equipment. The extremely lightweight 32 Ohm voice coil provides transparency and increased impulse fidelity.
Fold-Away Design - The convenient folding earcup design of the DT 440 helps it take up less space while on the move, easily folding into a compact form to carry in your backpack, suitcase, or bag.
