The Beyerdynamic Amiron Home headphones turns up the heat on the low-end with a slightly warmer feel and smoother extension at the edges of the frequency range. The typically analytical Beyer signature sound remains intact so audiophiles seeking the ideal combination of precision detail clarity and a juicy tone may have a new favorite.
Engineered and hand-manufactured in Germany. Detachable 9.5ft headphone cable. 250 Ohms impedance.
Beyerdynamic headphones typically rate high with music lovers seeking a pristine tone high on detail with a controlled but well textured bass response. The Amiron Home headphone keeps within the classic Beyerdynamic signature sound of a wide-open, forward presentation that leans slightly towards utmost mids/highs clarity with a tight and tidy low-end.
The Beyerdynamic Amiron hews pretty close to the sound of famous Beyer audiophile cans like the DT990 and sounds specially strong reproducing acoustic guitar textures, pianos and vocals. The Amiron also exhibits a display of command with complex horn chart textures or spiky modern electronics and presents them with a pleasing textural depth and realism.
Orchestral and symphonic music in particular makes impressive use of the very stable, pinpoint soundstage imaging ability of the Amiron. The image perspective is not overly separated or spread out and maintains a good sense of cohesion even with very busy music or congested recordings. Despite its unblinking deep focus, the Amiron stays smooth and avoids glassy glare in the upper highs with a fine sense of air and very good treble range resolution.
Dynamics are not explosive but render the peaks and valleys of the recording with solid faithfulness and nuance. Overall, our Headphone.com staff review opinion would say the Amiron is a well-priced audiophile headphone with a rather traditional Beyer soundscape softened at the edges by a more melliflous timbral sheen than heard in their 'Pro' series of cans.
In the end, some sensitive listeners may still think the Amiron's mise-en-scene to be too brightly lit for their tastes. But music lovers seeking maximum intelligibility and clarity without big bass or those audiophiles listening to vintage tube amps or darker analog recordings will enjoy the intense immediacy and immersiveness of the Beyerdynamic Amiron Home.
The Beyerdynamic Amiron German build quality is second to none with beefy curved aluminum bails and a lightweight headband frame designed to last for years. Padding is superb throughout with earpad cushion materials unique to the Amiron and said to be essentially wear-proof for long-term durability. The Amiron comes with a great hard case and a detachable Y-type headphone cord measuring nearly 10ft in length.
