The completely redesigned transducers achieve values of over one Tesla (a unit of measurement for magnetic flux density). That provides the listener with almost double as much volume as traditional headphones.
The increased efficiency also leaves the T 1 with greater power reserves for dynamic, undistorted sound and nearly lossless conversion of electric signals into sound waves. The extremely lightweight 600 Ohm voice coil provides transparency and perfect impulse fidelity.
The elegant look of the T 1 compliments the technical achievements, with even the smallest of details selected by hand. This model reaffirms beyerdynamic's commitment to world-class "Made in Germany" quality.
Get the most out of your headphones: enjoy the T 1 together with the A 2 headphone amplifier as the dream team for audiophiles.
Further information about Tesla Technology Completely re-engineered transducers (drivers) based on a neodymium ring magnet with optimized magnetic field characteristics. This combination creates a magnetic field inside the transducer which is far stronger (> 1,2 Tesla - measuring unit for magnetic flux density - with current headphones the strength of the magnetic field is < 0,65 Tesla) than in standard headphones. Because of this increased magnetic field, the voice coil is more compact but still provides a very high degree of efficiency. The membrane, consisting of a 3 layer "compound foil", delivers an extremely precise frequency response and guarantees, in collaboration with the strong magnet, a transparent and distortion free sound..

www.hifipig.com 09/2014Title: Beyerdynamic T 1 HeadphonesAuthor: Stuart Smith/Linette Smith[...]"The T1s arrive in a stylish aluminium box designed to look a little like a professional flightcase and is well padded inside. This inspires confidence immediately and gives you some indication of Beyerdynamics’ professional and studio heritage. There’s a certificate of authenticity and that’s it – straight forward, no messing."[...]"They are an attractive champagne colour for the most part with the cans being attached to a metal frame. It’s a simple enough design that works well with the cans pivoting vertically to ensure the correct fit over your ear. They clamp firmly but not uncomfortably to your head and you can shake your head quite vigorously without them moving about, so those predisposed to exercise should be fine with these. The earpads are good and thick and made of a velour material which is pretty comfy over longer periods of listening. The headband is well padded and covered in leather (...)."(...)"These headphones throw a really good soundstage that feels quite natural and not overemphasised (...)." [...]"Bass is good tight and powerful without being over done in any way and whilst the soundstaging is better on some of the headphones we’ve had in for review (Final and Audeze) it’s up there with the best with the little nuances of the stage being particularly apparent around the ears in a front to back sense. I believe the T1s are suited to a wide range of musical styles and offer a clear window into what is happening, with bags and bags of detail but not so much tha they become a pain to listen to."[...]Conclusion Stuart:"Recommended for those looking for a dynamic and yet balanced headphone that is very good across all the musical styles we tried them with."[...]"The ‘phones themselves are also very classy looking. Again brushed metal but with a slightly golden greyhue. They are industrially sleek and I really like the subtle styling like the ‘herringbone’ detailing on the earcups and the cut out T1 logo on the sides."[...]"Happily they pass the ‘glasses test’ and sit comfortably with my specs on."[...]"The sound is big and intense, giving a real sense of being in a club in what was a power station. Tremendous and defined bass and a sound that is very driving and detailed, I guess that’s thanks to the Tesla tech then."[...]"The Beyerdynamic T1s really deliver on bass, vocals and everything else in the mix. The good mix of vocal and bass without anything being too much is again evident (...)"[...]"Speaking of bass…yep, time for ‘Once again back’ by Hardfloor. The bass is dry and rumbling, right through my head, tops are skippy as they should be and the mids are good too……I am overall very impressed by these understated, German headphones…a bit of a dark horse."[...]Conclusion Linette:"Very well made, high quality and reliable headphones. High end without screaming it in your face."

Reproduces nuances with extreme precision and sounds absolutely transparent, spatially and undistorted.
hifi und records Issue 4, 09/2014Title: Dream teamAuthor: Wilfried KressTranslated from the original German article[...]Conclusion: With the T 1, beyerdynamic impressively demonstrates that the possibilities of the dynamic headphone are far from being exploited. This, however, includes the courage of a company to go against the strength of the mobile market for the benefit of technical beliefs. In conjunction with the A 2 the T 1 makes a perfect team of the highest level.

Due to high performing reserves, the T1 always sounds crystal clear with an accurate and very dry bass. If you forget the vinyl for a short moment and listen to AC/DC’s “Live At River” on Blue-ray, you can hear every and each fan frenetically singing on the DTS-HD-Master track. Respect! The T1 should definitely be on each wish list.
"With this headphone you can hear a lot of things you may have never heard before, such as footsteps, raindrops, and even whispering." [...]"Man oh man these cans can reach deep into the music. They are so transparent that you can hear nearly everything that's there."
"Very highly recommended and a true Five star performer."
"Detail and imaging are top notch, as well as musicality."
"Beyerdynamic T 1: Mercedes-Benz of headphones"
"All-in-all, the T 1 is a world class headphone. Beyerdynamic has outdone themselves, and I’m completely blown away."
Stereo 01/2010Title: First class listeningAuthor: Ulrich WienforthTranslated from the original German article
The sound of the T1 is absolutely balanced and reserved without spectacular bass or highs – natural and committed to the original.
