    • Beyerdynamic Tesla T1 Headphones

      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.

      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. The T1 also achieved higher maximum volumes compared with previous 600 Ohm models - an impressive 7 decibels.

      Beyerdynamic's T1 headphones 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 of the T1 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.

      The casing of the T1 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.

      "There are two parts to this review: Beyerdynamic's T1 headphones, paired with Beyerdynamic's A1 headphone amplifier. If you want to hear every last nuance of sound from a recording, we haven't come across a better way of doing it than this Beyerdynamic combination."

      "Certainly, no sub-£20,000 amp and speaker pairing we've heard has got anywhere near unravelling a complex recording as well as this duo."

      "To hold the T1 is to want a pair: it's that simple, as these really are very well-built 'phones. Those high-sensitivity drivers uncover a lot of detail and the lift in the midrange gives them a real sense of presence."

      "In a nutshell, the T1's sound mimicked its appearance: clean, crisp and persuasive."
