Hello SunDevil, can you tell us some more details about the 3 layer diaphragm ? (If no NDA limits)

So, they really are based off the DT880? Thats's what I expected, but heard about the ring design & made me change my mind now I understand..The T1 seems to be far apart from many Beyer created based on your "Innovattions."
Please don't misunderstand: The T 1 is NOT based on the DT 48! The mechanics of the T 1 are clearly based on the DT 880. The coincidence that the T 1 has a ring magnet is not on purpose, it's just the way it is. Just like I wrote on our site (under "Innovations"):
"...The transducers (drivers) are completely re-engineered and 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."
The T 1 system something different again...it's no "New DT 48" or something like that.
By the way, I've just updated the DT 48 E product site:
Concerning the Marketing of the DT 48; we will not start a marketing campaign, internet banners, posters or whatever. It's mainly a combination of exhibitions and maybe even magazine tests and believe me, there have always been proper presentations of new products. The DT 48 is a very old model, which means also it's presentation has been many, many years ago
Thank you all for your great support for beyerdynamic!
Many warm regards,
Found some reviews of the A1 headphone amplifier:
and further information:
If you start a loaner program I would take a listen to it. When I posed the question it went unanswered until I told you I was not interested. I believe if you want to sell the amp it needs to be heard and opinions given. If you decide to start a loaner program I would participate. Hoe than answers your question
