Byron: The same high quality beyerdynamic sound, now with ease of use for music on the go!

Byron, Byron BT and Byron BTA wired and bluetooth wireless headphones

High-quality sound for music on the go has a new name; Byron. The new Byron range has arrived and is now ready to take you to a new level of audio reproduction for music on the go. The range combines both high-quality sound and workmanship; with ease of use for people wanting to experience a totally enjoyable listening session and at the same time have the flexibility to take a call at a moment’s notice.

The range includes three models: a wired in-ear Byron headset retailing at $89.00; the Byron BT Bluetooth variant retailing at $189.00 and the Byron BTA wireless luxury model with DSP (digital signal processing) at a retail of $379.00.

Sound update for Android and Apple devices

All three variants are characterised by their solid aluminium housing. The entry-level Byron model is connected by cable to a smartphone or tablet. The remote cable control, pauses the music program as required, skips forward to the next title and takes calls. The volume can also be controlled in this way on Samsung devices or other Android players.

Greater freedom of movement with Bluetooth

The wireless Byron BT and Byron BTA models unleash the sound. They transmit music and telephone calls via Bluetooth. Tangled headphone cables are therefore a thing of the past. The acoustic transducers for right and left ear are connected to one another simply by means of a short cable, which also carries the wireless remote control for Apple and Android devices. All playback functions can therefore be controlled with ease – without having to take the smartphone or tablet from your pocket.

As a special highlight, magnets on the metal housing hold the two earphones together if required. This means that the Bluetooth headset can be worn around the neck when not in use and does not have to be packed away every time. A high-quality soft bag is also supplied for storage purposes which protects the headphones when in transport.

Freedom of Bluetooth with beyerdynamic headphones

Additional silicone ear-tips in three sizes ensure the perfect fit. beyerdynamic has also taken into account the fact that some people are very active while wearing their headsets. For this reason, ear hooks are included, the silicone loops are assembled in addition to the normal ear-tips and nestle into the ear-shell while wearing the BT and BTA. The headphones thus always fit perfectly into the auditory canal. A high-performance rechargeable battery supplies both headsets with energy; in addition any USB port can be used for charging the battery.

Optimum sound quality thanks to Qualcomm aptX® and AAC codec

With its loss-free Qualcomm aptX® codec, the Byron BT ensures top-quality Bluetooth transmission. The Byron BTA additionally offers the AAC codec – for Apple devices, which do not support transmission in Qualcomm aptX® format. All playback devices can therefore utilise their sound potential fully. Thanks to a specially adapted digital signal processor (DSP), the top model in the series, (the BTA) offers an even finer and more balanced sound than the Byron BT.

Yet the Byron BTA goes one step further: a practical fast charging cradle is also included among the luxury features of the BTA. The cradle can remain connected to the PC at home while the headphones can simply be docked as required; even better, the charging process on the BTA only takes 90 minutes to charge fully.
