Beyerdynamic Tesla T1

by: beyerdynamic

The expansively deep soundstage imaging and precise tonal balance of the Beyerdynamic Tesla T1 headphone is a stunning feat of audio engineering, partly due to freshly patented driver arrays creating over '1 Tesla' of flux density at the voice coil. This remarkable advancement results in extraordinarily accurate signal response, immeasurably quick dynamic range extension and beautifully uncluttered timbral textures. The stringent build quality and attention to manufacturing detail is superb, as is the strong pewter-gray look. Our highest possible HeadRoom audiophile headphone recommendation. Hand made in Germany; individually serial numbered.

  • Beyerdynamic has completely outdone themselves with their top-of-the-line Tesla T1 reference audiophile headphones. The tonal balance is just simply spot-on, the finesse and articulation is delicate as black rose petal textures, and the deep-space imaging is second (maybe!) only to the pricier HD800. The T1's majestic presentation excels at delivering buttery smooth yet nuanced, subtle, accurately detailed musical reproduction. The low bass response can extend wonderfully deep without any bone-rattling looseness or bloat with seamlessly transparent vocal midranges as focused and grain-free as we've ever heard in any headphone. Upper highs sing and soar in perfect space just like the very best $10,000+ room speakers. This is a headphone lover's headphone without question.

    At the heart of the Beyerdynamic 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 Beyerdynamic audio engineers to design an extremely light voice coil with very few windings. This uber-lightweight voice coil allowed for a similarly lightweight diaphragm, which means an audio driver that can accelerate and stop nearly-immeasurably fast and deliver extraordinary musical responsiveness and transparency. To further improve soundstage imaging ability, Beyerdynamic research brains placed the T1 drivers slightly forward of the ear and angled back in order to more precisely mimic the way sound naturally approaches the ears in real life. Hence, the T1 delivers masterful spatial imaging for headphones and, coupled with the incredible driver performance, reproduces orchestral, symphonic and classical music in as natural and organic way as we've ever heard. For LP vinyl fans and reference recording aficionados, this 100% engineered/manufactured in Germany audio component is a true 'must-hear'. Listeners should allow a minimum of 200hrs of 'burn-in' time before the full acoustic pleasures of this magnificent headphone are fully realized.

    The Beyerdynamic Tesla T1 goodness doesn't just 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 Teutonic style. The T1 delivers unsurpassed listening comfort as a result of its featherweight aluminum components, woven aluminum mesh earcups, leather headband and avant-garde acoustic dampening materials. The round, reasonably spacious earcups encircle the ears which rest on comfortably plush velour earpad cushions. Durable extruded aluminum bails connect the earcups to the headband and securely adjust for fit; the extra-thick leather headband pad secures the headphones in correct listening azimuth. HeadRoom geeks are unanimous that this is easily Beyerdynamic's finest offering ever; we highly recommend these headphones for a spectacularly pleasurable listening experience for any music lover or audiophile. The free 2 year manufacturer's warranty remains in effect only with a verified / authorized Beyerdynamic dealer purchase receipt like the one you'll get from us here at HeadRoom!

    THE BEYERDYNAMIC TESLA T1, 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 Beyerdynamic audio researchers gives the T1 a significant boost in overall efficiency. The new Beyer transducers achieve values of over '1 Tesla' for magnetic flux density, providing listeners with nearly double the volume potential as traditional high-impedance 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 nearly weightless 600 Ohm voice coils inside the T1 provides timbral transparency like no other driver design along with near-perfect signal impulse fidelity. To compliment the T1's audio precision, an acoustic baffle is set at an angle within the interior of the housing that adjusts to the natural peculiarities of the human ear and helps the detail-rich sound stream effectively into the ear's interior -- which helps to better interpret the spatially accurate, natural musical presentation. The elegant look of the T1 compliments the technical achievements with even the smallest of parts hand-selected by top German technicians at the Beyerdynamic facility. This model reaffirms Beyerdynamic's real commitment to world-class '100% Made in Germany' quality. To get the most out of your headphones, pair the T1 together with a headphone amplifier 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 of late 19th/early 20th centuries. When Nicola Tesla, a contemporary of Eugene Beyer, died in New York in 1943 at age eighty-six, he had filed well over 100 electrical patents.) Measured in Tesla (T), magnetic induction plays a central role in the sound of headphones. It indicates the ability of a sound 'converter' [driver/transducer array] to transform an electrical audio signal into sound waves and thus convert electricity into pure sound. Featuring twice the sound pressure of standard headphones, the highly innovative T1 driver makes it possible to produce high- performance headphones using minimal moving mass in a 600 Ohm coil and generates currently unequaled 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 Tesla T1 is the very top-performing model within this futuristic generation of Beyerdynamic audiophile reference headphones.
