Bey­er­dy­namic Am­iron £475

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - Awards 2018 -

When you’re spend­ing this sort of money, you ex­pect no com­pro­mise. From sound qual­ity to com­fort, dura­bil­ity and de­sign, ev­er­thing should be fault­less – and the Bey­er­dy­namic Am­iron head­phones de­liver just that. They’re the full pack­age.

A com­fort­able fit is not to be un­der­es­ti­mated with ex­pen­sive head­phones aimed at ex­tended home lis­ten­ing, which is why Bey­er­dy­namic has used al­can­tara mi­crofi­bres (a blend of polyester and polyurethane with a sim­i­lar tex­ture to suede) and mi­crov­elour to make the earcups and head­band. The re­sult? You could wear them for hours in mu­si­cal bliss.

We de­cide to blast out a rock clas­sic, AC/DC’S It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘N’ Roll) and the song’s bag­pipes are a good test of how a pair of head­phones can han­dle tre­ble. The Am­iron takes them in all its stride, keep­ing a good grip on the high fre­quen­cies with­out any harsh­ness.

On the softer side, the midrange vo­cals in Foun­tains of Wayne’s Ac­tion Hero come across clearly too, giv­ing an insightful ren­di­tion of the way that Chris Colling­wood drags and em­pha­sises the ends of his words that the other head­phones just can’t quite match.

At this price, Bey­er­dy­namic’s Am­iron head­phones pro­vide an im­pres­sive sound across the whole fre­quency range. We like the Amirons’ clear midrange vo­cals, their tight tim­ing, and the im­pres­sive way that they can han­dle chal­leng­ingly messy songs.

They aren’t cheap but if you’re pre­pared to shell-out for a premium ear ex­pe­ri­ence, these won’t dis­ap­point.

For com­fort and sound qual­ity, these Amirons are the full pack­age
