Beyerdynamic T1 Tesla


The new T1 are reference level headphones from Beyerdynamic, designed to generate significantly more sound pressure through redeveloped high-performance motors and offer stunning audio performance. The sound of these has been designed as airy and detail rich with excellent reproduction of fine tones. The result of much research and development, the T1 features 600-Ohm coils that are extra light whilst offer stunning sound.

High efficiency
Traditional extra-filigree drives tend to suffer from low efficiency rates. That prevents them from achieving real loudness when faced with underpowered headphone outputs, especially the popular 32 Ohm headphones that have become common in this age of the MP3. Yet the engineers didn't completely re-develop the driver just to increase its efficiency. They also achieved higher maximum volumes compared with previous 600 Ohm models - an impressive 7 decibels.

Newly designed magnets
They also feature newly designed magnets. Neodymium magnets had previously been positioned in the centre of the coil, which severely limited its size due to the flat design of the earpieces. The developers have now repositioned the magnets into a ring around the coil, allowing for a more than doubling of the magnetic flux density to approx. 1.2 Tesla. Even crossing the magical threshold of one Tesla for a pair of headphones would have been an admirable feat. At the same time, the new configuration of the magnet system enables a central ventilation hole through the pole cores to prevent sound-disrupting resonances and cancellations.

They don't only sound stunning...
The casing is also designed to satisfy the highest expectations. The open earpieces, covered through an elegant metal grate, are shielded from disruptive sonic reflections and protected against moisture through Acoustexx, a high-end acoustic mesh. As with all premium products from beyerdynamic, the new T1 is produced by qualified craftsmen who even in this age of globalisation continue to work from their headquarters in Heilbronn.

Attention is given to even the smallest details, such as the hand selection of transducer system pairs to ensure not just top production quality, but also audibly better balance for the left and right channels

After years of research, our engineers have managed to develop a revolutionary sound converter, a milestone in headphone design. Our new T1 headphone is the first model to break through the one-tesla barrier of magnetic induction. (The unit for measuring magnetic flux density is named the tesla, in honor of one of the world's greatest visionaries and inventors in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. When Nikola Tesla, a contemporary of Eugen Beyer, died in New York in 1943 at the age of eighty-six, he had filed well over 100 patents.) Measured in tesla (T), magnetic induction plays a central role in the development of headphones. It indicates the ability of a sound converter to transform an electrical audio signal into sound waves and thus convert electricity into sound. Featuring twice the sound pressure of standard headphones, a highly effective, innovative driver in the T1 makes it possible to produce high- performance headphones using minimal moving mass in a 600-ohm coil. This system generates currently unequalled impulse performance. (A converter behaves like a vehicle in this respect. The lower the weight and the higher the performance, the greater the acceleration.) The T1 is the first model in a new generation of headphones.

The T1 positions itself as a top-of-the-line product and as the star of the beyerdynamic headphone range from both a technical and a visual perspective. It is faithfully defined by a long-established design language, which, for experts, is synonymous with both quality and wearing comfort. Vivid materials and structures accentuate the high quality of the headphones while still remaining true to a familiar, understated style. T1 proves it is unsurpassed in its class as a result of its aluminium components, a specially woven wire mesh, a leather headband and high-tech acoustic materials. A translucent, non- woven, acoustic material allows a discreet insight into its revolutionary inner workings.

The T1 is the flagship model in the Premium Line 600-ohm impedance products from beyerdynamic. The currently available DT770, 880 and 990 Premium 600-ohm versions remain an important part of this product range. This new driver technology gives the T1 an enormous boost in efficiency. It provides the listener with almost double the volume as traditional headphones. The increased efficiency also leaves the T1 with greater power reserves for dynamic, undistorted sound and lossless conversion of electric signals into sound waves. The extremely lightweight 600-Ohm voice coil provides transparency and perfect impulse fidelity.
