Beyerdynamic's best Tesla T1 headphones are prepared for balanced XLR amps by the inventors of headphone balanced-drive, your friends at HeadRoom. The stunning soundstage depth and precise tonal balance of the Tesla T1 remains a stunning feat of audio engineering due, in part, to drivers creating above '1 Tesla' of magnetic flux at the voice coil. In balanced mode, the musical detail resolution becomes impossibly liquid, seamless and textural with an added touch of bottom-end heft. 2-year free warranty on all HeadRoom labor.
- Re-terminated to XLR Neutrik balanced plugs by HeadRoom technicians
- Superb sound quality improvement for already awesome reference headphones
- For use ONLY with dedicated balanced-drive /XLR headphone amps
- 2-year HeadRoom labor warranty
What's In The Box:
- Beyerdynamic Tesla T1 Balanced Headphones
Beyerdynamic's best Tesla T1 headphones made ready for balanced XLR amps by your friends at HeadRoom. The stunning soundstage depth and precise tonal balance of the Tesla T1 remains a stunning feat of audio engineering due, in part, to newly developed audio drivers creating above '1 Tesla' of magnetic flux at the voice coil -- a revolutionary first in any headphone. Under balanced-drive, the musical detail resolution becomes even more liquid, seamless and textural with an added touch of bottom-end impact to boot. 2-year free warranty on all HeadRoom labor.
Beyerdynamic has outdone themselves with the Tesla T1. The tonal balance is simply spot-on, the finesse and articulation is superb, and the imaging is second (perhaps!) only to the pricier HD800. This headphone excels at delivering buttery smooth yet nuanced, accurate and detailed musical reproduction; it's a headphone lover's headphone without question.
At the very heart of the Tesla T1 is a newly designed driver assembly that achieves a record breaking 1.2 Tesla of magnetic flux density at the voice coil, which allowed Beyer engineers to design an extremely light voice coil with fewer windings. The uber-lightweight voice coil allowed for a similarly lightweight diaphragm, which means an audio driver that can accelerate and stop extremely rapidly to deliver extraordinary musical responsiveness and transparency. To further improve imaging ability, Beyerdynamic research gurus placed the T1 drivers slightly forward of the ear and angled back in order to more precisely mimic the way sound naturally approaches the ear in real life. Hence, the T1 delivers masterful soundstage imaging for headphones and, coupled with the incredible driver performance, reproduces music in as natural and organic way as we've ever heard. For classical music fans and reference recording afficionados, this 100% engineered-and-manufactured in Germany audio component is a true 'must-hear'. Listeners should allow a minimum of 300hrs of 'burn-in' time before the full acoustic pleasures of this magnificent balanced can are totally realized.
The Beyerdynamic goodness doesn't end with the sound quality either. New construction materials and advanced design accentuate the advancements of these cans while remaining true to Beyer's understatedly elegant style. The T1 Balanced delivers unsurpassed listening comfort as a result of its featherweight aluminum components, woven wire-mesh earcups, real leather headband and high-tech acoustic dampening materials. The perfectly round, reasonably spacious earcups encircle the ears which rest on plush black velour earpad cushions. Durable extruded aluminum bails connect the earcups to the headband and securely adjust for fit while the extra-thick leather headband pad secures the headphones in correct listening azymuth. HeadRoom geeks are unanimous that this is easily Beyerdynamic's finest offering ever; we highly recommend these balanced-drive-ready headphones for a spectacularly pleasurable listening experience for any audiophile owning a superb balanced headphone amp.
BEYERDYNAMIC T1 HEADPHONES, IN-DEPTH!
A new era has dawned with the development of the beyerdynamic Tesla 1 600-Ohm headphones. The brand-new Tesla technology engineered by Beyerdynamics audio research gives the T1 a huge boost in overall efficiency. These new transducers achieve values of well over "1 Tesla" for magnetic flux density, providing the listener with nearly double the volume potential as traditional 600-Ohm headphones. The increased efficiency also leaves the T1 with greater power reserves for fully dynamic, completely undistorted sound and true 'lossless' conversion of electric signals into sound waves. The extremely lightweight 600 Ohm voice coil inside the T1 provides timbral transparency like no other along with truly perfect signal impulse fidelity. To compliment the stunning audio precision, the acoustic baffle was set at an angle within the interior of the housing. It adjusts to the natural peculiarities of the human ear and helps the detail-rich sound stream effectively into the ear‘s interior -- which helps you better enjoy the spatially accurate, extremely natural presentation. The elegant look of the T1 compliments the technical achievements with even the smallest of parts hand-selected by top-level German technicians at Beyerdynamic. This model reaffirms Beyerdynamic‘s intense commitment to world-class "100% Made in Germany" quality. To get the most out of your headphones, pair the T1 Balanced with our HeadRoom Balanced Ultra Desktop amp as the 'dream team' for seriously demanding audiophiles wanting the best of the best.
As mentioned above, the Beyerdynamic T1 headphone is the first model to ever 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 Nicola 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 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 very first model in this future generation of high-end headphones which now also include the lauded Beyerdynamic T5p and T50p models.
