Denver, CO October 3, 2017– beyerdynamic is pleased to introduce at the Rocky Mountain AudioFest Oct. 6-8 in booth # RMEC 57-58 the high-end Aventho wireless headphone. Make it yours: following this motto, beyerdynamic is transforming the sound of its headphones into a completely customized experience. Because individual sound preferences are not only about taste; on the contrary: audiology research confirms that the way people hear is as varied as people themselves. In order to create a “tailor-made suit for the ears”, beyerdynamic is working together with Mimi Hearing Technologies. Mimi’s sound customization technology allows for the creation of a personal listening profile tailored to a set of beyerdynamic headphones. This profile is based on the soundcheck in the “Make it yours” (MIY) app and then uploaded directly to the headphones. Your favorite music never sounded so perfect: a new era for completely customized listening. This groundbreaking sound customization will celebrate its debut.
Until now, sound has always been statically balanced. However, we all hear sounds differently, and our hearing changes over the course of our lives. Mimi’s in-headphone sound customization turns music and sounds into a completely personal experience – with individual calibration that is especially determined for your hearing.
Berlin, Germany-based company Mimi is one of the world’s most in-demand sound customization specialists. More than a million people have already used Mimi technology to test their hearing or adjust sound to suit their hearing. This technology is certified as a medical product (CE). The core of the technology, developed by a team of audiologists, psychoacoustic experts, engineers and designers, is the simulation of the way sound is processed in the human ear (in particular the cochlea).
The Aventho wireless has a powerful internal rechargeable battery that offers up to 20 hours of playing time. The headphones are also fitted with a microphone and can be used as a headset. When used together with a smartphone, there’s no need to remove the Aventho wireless when receiving a call: all it takes is one double-tap gesture to get the caller on the line. The headset function is also ideal for video conferences on notebooks or tablets.
An attractive and functional design ensures that the latest model makes both an acoustic and visual statement for music lovers. Pivoting, closed earcups provide excellent insulation against ambient noise. This, combined with the comfortable cushioning, makes the Aventho wireless the perfect companion for long journeys.
In addition to customized sound, beyerdynamic is also contributing towards healthy, fatigue-free listening: the tracking functionality is an innovative “Sound Watching” app service that provides an overview of your listening habits on request and shows whether your ears need a rest – because sometimes your favorite music can make you lose track of time. The “Sound Watching” function analyses playback volume and listening duration. It uses these two parameters to determine potential strain on the hearing. But that doesn’t mean the tracking service has the last say: you as the music lover always remain in control.
The beyerdynamic Aventho wireless will be available in black and in brown and is made in Germany. It also comes with a sturdy fabric bag.
As part of this, some information is emphasized to support the brain in processing and distinguishing between different sound elements. Instead of making frequency-selective volume adjustments like a simple equalizer, Mimi’s sound customization replicates the natural processes in human hearing that change over time and therefore provides clear, full and high-contrast sound.
The basis for headphone customization is the “soundcheck”, which is carried out using the beyerdynamic MIY app. The hearing is examined using a sophisticated test: a complete listening profile is created within approx. six minutes. All that is required for the test is quiet surroundings, a smartphone, and a set of Aventho wireless headphones. The result is a listening profile that fits you like a perfectly tailored suit and allows for unique sound calibration. Once the listening profile is complete, it is saved in a chip in the headphones. It is thus available for every sound source – even without the app. The intensity of the sound adjustment can be set using the beyerdynamic MIY app.
The first set of beyerdynamic headphones to integrate the groundbreaking Mimi technology is the closed on-ear Aventho wireless. This new high-end model also offers innovative operation: the right side serves as a touch gesture control pad. All functions can be activated using simple touches and gestures: next track, louder, take a call, hang up, lower volume, pause… it’s never been so easy to control your headphones, smartphone and music player app. As such, your smartphone can stay in your pocket. The sensitivity of the touch controls can be customized to suit your individual preferences using the MIY app. Further customization options will be made available via updates.
Excellent aptX™ HD Bluetooth transmission for uncompromising sound
The name Aventho wireless already says it all: the future of audio transmission will be free from wires. beyerdynamic uses Bluetooth 4.2 protocol with the aptX™ HD codec from Qualcomm® to guarantee the best possible sound, even without wires. Thanks to its excellent resolution and high dynamic range, aptX™ HD provides unique audiophile transmission and is the first choice for Android devices. beyerdynamic also supports the AAC codec for iOS Apple products.
In the new Aventho wireless, the Tesla sound transducers are used to guarantee an extraordinary acoustic performance. They enable unique richness of detail despite their compact size – and are therefore the perfect canvas for Mimi sound customization.
Alan Feckanin, Director Americas, further states his excitement. “The Aventho Wireless is truly a custom headphone. Our market in the USA has been asking for this. We are thrilled to have a superior product that responds to our customers’ wants and needs. beyerdynamic continues to provide exceptional quality products for the USA consumer.”
