CES 2017: Beyerdynamic Amiron Premium Home Listening Headphone
The Amiron is a continuing evolution of the Tesla driver line. It's nice to see a headphone with a 250 Ohm impedance in this ev er-increasing world of sub-100 Ohm drivers. Beyer has wisely chosen to include a three meter OFC cable for home listening, and optionally available three meter OFC balanced cable with four-pin XLR, and shorter 1.4 meter OFC cable for times when a short cord is less cumbersome. Also available is a hard-side, clam-shell, carry case.
My quick listening impression was of a slightly "U" shaped response, but with less treble harshness that I've experience with previous full-sized Tesla cans from the maker. To quote from the Amiron product page:
The Tesla system has now been further refined for use in Amiron home. Modifications to the transducer have diminished unwanted vibrations to an absolute minimum and completely eliminated annoying treble resonances. More precise than ever, the sound tuning will amaze even the most discerning music enthusiasts.
Seems they've been listening to feedback from enthusiasts. Well done, Beyer!
