Product Description

Size: T1

The completely redesigned transducers achieve values of over one Tesla (a unit of measurement for magnetic flux density). That provides the listener with almost double as much volume as traditional headphones.

From the Manufacturer

About beyerdynamic

Since 1924, beyerdynamic has been developing innovative audio products with best-in-class sound quality and technology. Three business areas – Conference, Pro Audio, and Consumer – deliver tailored solutions for the professional and enthusiast. All of our products are developed in Germany and primarily manufactured by hand – from hi-fi headphones to conference systems to live and studio microphones.

beyerdynamic T1

Tesla Hi-Fi circumaural headphones, semi-open

Precision and passion: No Hi-Fi headphones embody these principles like the T1 from beyerdynamic. The new Tesla drivers provide high-efficiency with extraordinarily precise and detailed sound.

Hand-crafted in Germany, the T1 offers superior build quality with necessary comfort for long listening sessions.


- Semi-open, circumaural design

- Perfect transient and phase fidelity (600 ohm voice coil)

- Metal storage case included

- Handmade in Germany

- 5 year warranty

  • Design: Semi-open
  • Construction: Circumaural
  • Impedance: 600 ohms
  • Frequency Response: 5 - 50,000 Hz
  • Nominal SPL: 102 dB
  • Cable & Plug: Straight connecting cable with 1/4 inch stereo jack (6.35mm)

Tesla Technology

Completely re-engineered transducers (drivers) based on a neodymium ring magnet with optimized magnetic field characteristics. This combination creates a magnetic field inside the transducer which is far stronger (> 1,2 Tesla - measuring unit for magnetic flux density - with current headphones the strength of the magnetic field is < 0,65 Tesla) than in standard headphones. Because of this increased magnetic field, the voice coil is more compact but still provides a very high degree of efficiency. The membrane, consisting of a 3 layer "compound foil", delivers an extremely precise frequency response and guarantees, in collaboration with the strong magnet, a transparent and distortion free sound.

In fact I think the rolled off bass can make music sound more natural.
Austin Wunschel
Beyerdynamic has also done well, when they had designed the reproductive capabilities of the T1's Bass reproduction!
Boz Scaggs - Lowdown (1976): Good sound quality - this is a great test for any nasality in the midrange.

Size Name: T1
NOTE: This is copied from my profile, Zombie_X.

I won't get too technical or get too in depth int his review. I will just state what I believe these headphones do and how they sound, just very straight to the point.

The T1 is beyerdynamics' latest entry into full size open dynamic headphones. This model can achieve one Tesla with it's new driver and magnet system. This allows the T1 to be far more efficient and easier to amp than the DT880/600Ohm by quite a bit. This also means your amp won't strain to power them like some amps do with the DT880/600 (and this is from my experience).

IMO the Tesla 1 is at about the same level of the HD800, but I vastly prefer the T1 as it sounds more natural and dare I say less synthetic than the HD800. The HD800 has a leaner sound with more prominent treble and less bass, though the bass on the HD800 is slightly more accurate.

Well onto the sound. I will be comparing to the HD800 in this review as I find them to be in the same league. I will go in sections: DETAIL, TRANSPARENCY, TREBLE, MIDRANGE, BASS, SOUNDSTAGE, CONCLUSION.

With this headphone you can hear a lot of things you may have never heard before, such as footsteps, raindrops, and even whispering. The detail retrieval is very close to that of the HD800, but rather more subtle sounding. The HD800 seems to revel in it's ability to bring out the smallest details. The T1 still has nearly the same amount of detail as the HD800, but it's just not so painfully obvious. The HD800 makes you want to focus on the details while the T1 is more of actually listening to the music, but that's my view on it.

Man oh man these cans can reach deep into the music.

In my 90 days of testing, the Tesla transducers/drivers definitely do their job in this set of mobile audiophile headphones. It's the first pair of mobile high-end headphones that have honest studio sound without, plugging in an amp. Operating at 32 ohms, these things were designed to play nice with my smartphone, but I was blown away by the incredible output it really has.

With this technology, I'm still able to get the powerful output I'd expect in highend headphones, but WITHOUT draining my phone/MP3's battery life. With this efficiency has come absolutely no degradation in sound quality or volume.

Overall, these are very comfortable and the 12 oz weight distributes almost unnoticeable across my head and ears. Both ear pads & headband are covered in a very supple/soft leather that I find cool to the touch even after prolonged use. It's almost breathable (if that is even possible?). The closed-back construction does a very decent job at blocking out ambient noise. I'm also able to crank the volume while at work or the library without bothering anyone.

I'm able to hear extreme detail in these. I can hear the slightest of sounds on almost any track (wind, rain, walking, breathing, etc). It's very reminiscent of being in the front row of an up close and personal small jazz session or something. I find myself visualizing the different aspects of all the instruments, now that they have come more to life.

Overall, I seriously can't imagine a more dynamic set of headphones ever being made. They aren't overly "Bassy", but instead offer a more realistic representation of what music actually sounds like. These work great on all of my mobile devices, without the need of an amp. Two thumbs way up on these.

I received a product sample to test and evaluate and so far, I haven't come across any bumps in the road. Should I come across anything, I'll be updating this review.

Size Name: T1 Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Beyerdynamic's products for many years. I had been until recently using the now-discontinued Beyer 600 ohm DT770s, and thought that I had about as good as it could get. I was dismayed when I heard that the company had discontinued this old workhorse. The bass was deep but not muddy, the highs were present without being sibilant, and the midrange was well-balanced for vocals. In other words, perfect for my ears. Since I listen only with headphones, I tend to wear them out after a few years. Anticipating this, my immediate thought was to see if I could find a new pair of 600 ohm DT770's on the internet, but none could be found. So, after reading all of Beyer's copy and the other Amazon reviews, I decided to give their new flagship a try. I am very glad I did!
I listen to my music via my iTiunes library exclusively, and my entire CD collection has been ripped to either Apple Lossless Format or WAV format, and is served up through a Macintosh laptop via a USB connection to a Headroom MicroDAC and ultimately through a Beyer A1 headphone amp to the cans. Nothing changed in the setup except the cans themselves when the T1s arrived. At first hearing, since I was anxious, my initial response was "no big deal, not sure they are worth three times the price of the 770s." But, after burning in for a week or so, I started to notice that they most definitely are worth three times the price of the 770s. The differences are in the details, which is really what makes the music exciting. It didn't take long for me to notice that the sound of the bass fiddle in my jazz recordings was 'guttier,' much more natural sounding, and that the high of a triangle was crystal clear. And with this comes a definition and a presence that I did not think possible for recorded music.
