Translated from the original German article


I do not want to withhold the gem that I found at beyerdynamic: the DT 213 Pro.


Should you think about whether a professional headphone as the DT 231 Pro is the right thing for you, just try it. After all, the sound quality of this grey, inconspicuous headphone is simply outstanding.


What the DT 231 Pro brings across, is extremely contoured, controlled and differentiated. This is how bass sounds with headphones. The beyerdynamic headphone also reproduces the rest of the frequency spectrum with the highest resolution, fascinating detail and perfect dynamics. In the middle voices are incredibly nuanced, the highs are of fine a resolution - that's just really, really good. The downside: This headphone also reveals mistakes in a recording just as mercilessly as it brings all the fascinating details of a good recording to be heard.


Quite a big recommendation for all those, to whom the sound is really important.
