Recently Beyerdynamic astonished audiophiles worldwide with the premium in-ear headphone Xelento Remote. This high-end IEM features some of the best materials and technology and the sound is simply amazing. Now the rumor mill is already spinning about a US release of the Beyerdynamic Xelento In-Ear Wireless headphone which was recently announced on their European website. This news has hungry audiophiles dying to know if this is true. If so it would be an incredible step in the wireless market. Inside sources for MajorHiFi say this is totally true and a US release is imminent. In the meantime let’s take a quick look at the specs and photos of this cool looking in-ear headphone.
A First Look At The Beyerdynamic Xelento In-Ear Wireless
If you’ve read my full review on the Beyerdynamic Xelento Remote you know it’s an amazing sounding IEM. In fact, it’s one of my all-time favorite in-ear headphones. The reason I like the Xelento so much is because it combines incredible sound with exceptional design and comfort. It has a stainless steel housing with an ergonomic shape that also proves to be a sophisticated look.
The Xelento Wireless is basically the same design with the added benefit of having a Bluetooth and NFC capabilities. It addition to the Beyerdynamic Tesla technology the Xelento Wireless boasts having AptX HD. This is a huge step forward for wireless audio and may prove to be major competition for other wireless IEM manufacturers. The Xelento Wireless uses Bluetooth 4.0 and also has a frequency range of 8Hz to 48,000Hz which is truly unheard of in wireless earphones. (No pun intended)
The design of the Xelento Wireless is truly unique in that it uses a slick looking cylinder to house all the wireless technology and battery. This leaves the room in the earphones for exactly the same setup as the Xelento Remote for what is hopefully.. the same great sound.
As for the release date for the Xelento Wireless in the US, I can only say it’s going to be sooner than later but you can be sure MajorHifi will cover it once it’s out on the streets. In the meantime, check out the specs and pics of this really cool IEM.
