The wireless wave has no sign of ceasing, turning some of the biggest names in audiophile solutions to adopt their own new Bluetooth headphones, including Beyerdynamic. The German company has engineered a new customizable wireless headset fit with Tesla technology called Beyerdynamic Aventho Wireless.
New Release Beyerdynamic Aventho Wireless
Beyerdynamic has partnered with Mimi Hearing Technologies to offer a customizable listening experience to Aventho users via the MIY “Make It Yours” app the Beyerdynamic Aventho wireless becomes completely tailored to the listener’s unique hearing profile. Mimi’s technology is able to do so essentially by calibrating your hearing with an auditory test that illustrates your sound profile and saves it on the app. Remember Nura launched via Kickstarter? That headphone and companion app did the same thing, however Beyer takes this tech a step further by incorporating “Sound Watching,” a feature that monitors your hearing. The service provides an overview of your listening habits on request and shows whether your ears need a rest. “Sound Watching” analyzes playback volume and listening duration. It then uses those two parameters to determine potential strain on the hearing and lets the user know, but it doesn’t stop the music.
Aventho seems like it’ll deliver in terms of sound since it incorporates Beyer’s impressive Tesla technology. Tesla transducers, found in premium-grade semi-open back headphones like the Beyerdynamic T1, are known for their powerful magnetic driver and an “extremely high-resolution playback without any tonal coloring,” explains Beyerdynamic. In the new Aventho wireless, the Tesla sound transducers are used to guarantee an extraordinary acoustic performance while enabling a unique richness of detail despite their compact size. That is then paired with MIY app for a truly innovative and personalized listening experience.
Aesthetically, Aventho looks to take after the T51i, a beautifully crafted on-ear headphone that I was a truly a fan of. It delivered a nice degree of bass while sounding full. I’m imagining Aventho can do the same. The exterior of Aventho’s ear cups are flat rather than rounded which makes them perfectly capable of processing touch controls. Yep, the right ear cup serves as a touch gesture control pad. All basic functions (like switching back and forth between tracks, pausing/playing music, and taking calls) can be accessed through the right ear cup all the while your phone remains in your pocket or purse.
Operating over Bluetooth 4.2 along with aptX codecs, Aventho promises a secure connection with the best in quality of connection, quality of sound, all over a 20 hour life span.
Beyerdynamic Aventho Wireless will be showing at IFA 2017 on Berlin, Germany before it goes on sale in October retailing for $533.60 USD in black or brown.
