beyerdynamic T1 & T5 Tesla Hi-Fi Headphones (3rd gen, 2020)

Now in their 3rd generation, the T1 (open-back) and T5 (closed-back) high-end over-ear headphones offer audiophiles precise spatial sound in a high-quality design.

Closed or Open-Back

beyerdynamic today introduced third generation T1 (open-back) & T5 (closed-back) high-end Tesla headphones. Priced at $999 each, these two new over-ear headphones claim to offer audiophiles optimum sound neutrality through proprietary Tesla transducers with maximum efficiency.

Tesla transducers developed by beyerdynamic are individually measured and matched in pairs to guarantee maximum sound precision and natural reproduction. The special arrangement of the drivers also guarantees precise spatial perception so the music appears in front on center stage, just like at a concert.

The new third-generation open-back T1 headphones are said to deliver spatial sound that gets a gentle bass boost for a warmer sound experience. The closed-back T5 improves realism especially in the upper mid, making both voices and instruments more clearly and distinctly perceptible, like being at a live performance.

Both headphones are powered by transducers based on beyerdynamic’s legendary Tesla technology. Developed and manufactured at the beyerdynamic headquarter in Heilbronn, the Tesla transducers deliver high sound reproduction even if the source is a less than perfect music player. Both models are Hi-Res Audio certified and guarantee a high-resolution sound playback. Every piece of music is reproduced with all its detail – no other headphones get that close to the original recording.

German Craftsmanship

With both headphones, sound technology meets high-end materials and design. The T1 and T5 both have yokes of anodized, brushed aluminum; their headbands are covered with Alcantara® which gives them a very special elegance.

The T1’s housing cover looks stunning with a precise and elegant perforated pattern that was machined in the lacquered stainless steel using a complex production process. The T5 is based on the design of its sister headphone. As a closed model, its housing cover is an elaborate structure with brushed and lacquered aluminum.

Both models have earpads that ensure that the sound is perfectly balanced and make them incredibly comfortable to wear. This is achieved thanks to a memory foam filling of their earpads, which adapt to the head’s shape through heat and pressure. Breathable soft velour covers for the T1’s earpads, making them fit snugly around the ears. The earpads of the T5 are made from synthetic leather, which helps to shield from external noises.

The T1 and T5 have textile-covered cables that are plugged in at both ends. The cover makes the cables more flexible and a pleasure to handle. Because they have removable cables, they can be easily replaced. The textile sheathing also protects the high-purity OCC7N copper conductors, which ensure the best possible signal transmission. Both headphones can be enjoyed at home with mobile devices due to their 32 Ohm impedance.
