Top quality "Made in Germany"
The T 1 stands for top sound quality and precise workmanship like no other headphones from beyerdynamic. It is the flagship of beyerdynamic's premium range for the home and its unique Tesla technology sets new standards. The T 1 plays crystal clear, excels with faultless impulse fidelity and long-range, power sound quality. Its frequency range is extraordinarily harmonically tuned; its reproduction is spatially transparent and offers enjoyment of music for the most demanding of listeners.
Silky-smooth warmth meets precise bass
The second generation of this high-end model impresses thanks to a new, even further enhanced tuning with a touch more warmth and musicality that will delight audiophile listeners. Moreover, a carefully intensified bass gives fans of contemporary music, in particular, the low-frequency foundation that they are looking for.
Tesla technology for genuine music enthusiasts
Tesla technology uses innovative sound transducers with over 1.0 Tesla (unit of measure for the magnetic flux density). The headphones therefore permit practically twice the volume of conventional models. Thanks to the enhanced efficiency the electric signal is converted into sound vibrations with virtually no loss of performance. The T 1 therefore offers greater performance reserves for dynamic and authentic musical fireworks.
Studio-quality plug-in cable
The new edition of the T 1 with textile-covered connection cable and screwable jack plug provides for optimum sound transmission. Its conductors, made from ultra-pure OCC copper, are among the best the industry has to offer. It can be removed from the headphones and, if required, exchanged for an optional cable with 4-pin XLR connector. This enables users with a headphone amplifier with the right outputs to take advantage of 'symmetrical transmission'.
High quality materials - Elegant design
The elegant appearance of the T 1 rounds off the technical fine details with the individually selected construction right down to the tiniest detail. The open earcups covered with a delicate metallic grill and subtle colour shades round off the premium appeal of this headphone model. The T 1 received the international design prize "Red Dot design award" for this in 2010.Soft, velour ear cushions made from hollow fibre are further hallmarks of the new generation of the T 1. They transport warmth and moisture away from the head, enabling the listener to enjoy music for hours without any unpleasant build-up of heat. A memory foam layer beneath the velour cover makes the ear cushions exceptionally soft.When not in use, the headphones can be stored in a luxurious hard case with a hinged lid. Not only is this ideal for transporting the headphones, but also perfect for displaying the classic piece next to your hi-fi system at home.You will enjoy the T 1 most impressively with the A 2 headphone amplifier from beyerdynamic ? the "dream team" for true music lovers.
A20 Headphone Amplifier
The A 20 headphone amplifier is used to operate up to two head-phones with a nominal impedance from 30 to 600 ohms. The power amplifier, of a discrete design, and the combination of selected high-grade components inside the device allows even high-impedance hi-fi headphones to be driven flawlessly over the entire frequency range. The A 20 supplies an impressively natural and transparent sound with excellent resolution and spatiality. The volume control adjusts the volume for both headphone outputs, which are connected in parallel. Its handy button is made of solid aluminium and hides a high-grade ALPS potentiometer with smooth volume values. Gold-plated RCA phono sockets on the rear are used to connect the audio source and allow a signal transmission without loss. The input is looped-through, which means audio signals that are present at the INPUT sockets are routed to the OUTPUT sockets, even when the device is switched off. Due to the hard-wired design there is no loss. The high-quality metal housing is made of brushed aluminium and protects against signal scattering and vibration. Due to the internal wide-range power supply the A 20 can be operated with 110 V/60 Hz and 240 V/50 Hz, allowing for global use.
With the A 20 you will rediscover your dynamic headphones.
This new headphone amplifier from beyerdynamic is perfect for all headphone applications and provides dual outputs for shared listening with a partner.
The circuit of the A20 is designed based on our legendary A 1 reference headphone amplifier. The discrete output stage provides plenty of power even for high-impedance headphones while the dynamic, open and precise sound sets the A 20 apart from what can be found in the normal output stages of regular amplifiers or receivers. This is confirmed by its first-class circuitry and excellent technical specifications that provide a balanced sound for long periods of comfortable listening.
High build-quality and nice
Made of brushed aluminum, the housing of the A 20 is especially solid and resonance-free. Due to the innovative chassis design, no screws are visible on the external surfaces. Equipped with an original ALPS potentiometer for variable volume control, a knob turned from solid aluminum completes the attractive yet robust look of this amplifier.
Simple and Flexible
With a high-gain RCA input, the A 20 works easily with most sources. The input signal can be looped through and is entirely free from signal-loss thanks to the hard-wired RCA output. Due to the built-in power supply, which is connected via a detachable power cord (supplied), no external power supply is needed avoiding disturbing background noise. Thanks to the dual headphone jacks on the front, two people can listen to the A 20 together without an adapter cable.
