2. Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless Copper Bluetooth Headphones

Powered by high-end Tesla drivers, the Amiron Wireless Copper Bluetooth Headphones from Beyerdynamic provide a fascinating spatial and realistic sound. The basses are deep and precise, the mids are full and natural, and the highs are silky and clear.

Unique copper elements adorn the Amiron Wireless Copper Headphones. At the heart of the headphones, the VC utilizes copper elements, which are also made visible on the outside as a design element. This semiprecious metal is used in the form of a copper ring outlined as a decorative seam on the headband and in the serial number.

Bluetooth Wireless Technology

The Bluetooth wireless technology allows the use of all devices such as smartphones, tablets, or computers that also make use of this technology. A range of up to 10 meters allows enough freedom of movement.

The following codecs are used in transmission with Bluetooth: Qualcomm, aptX, aptX HD, Apple AAC, and aptX LL for audio transmission with a minimum delay. If a Bluetooth wireless technology enabled product is not available or the battery is empty, the Amiron wireless can also be used with the supplied connection cable with a mini-jack plug (3.5 mm) and remote control.

Convenient Design for Easy Operation

The headphones are switched on or off via a button. An LED integrated into the button displays the operating status. For conversations, a microphone is integrated with the ear cup. A touchpad on the ear cup is used to control the media playback and calls.

Voice prompts on the battery status also contribute to the ease of operation. The integrated battery itself is charged via the USB port on the right ear cup. When not in use, the Amiron wireless can be stored in the included hard case.
