BEYERDYNAMIC AMIRON WIRELESS
Big in size, price and quality
One of the best wireless headphones money can buy
There’s no shortage of options when it comes to wireless headphones but it’s a stark contrast when it comes to the expensive ones. We’ve got good sounding earphones around the `30k mark from Bose and Sony but at double the price, can Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless can justify its high price tag? We find out.
The two requisites for a good headphone are that they should be comfortable to use and sound good. While we’ll discuss the audio quality in a bit, we can vouch for Amiron Wireless’ comfort. The size, initially, feels overwhelming but they’re extremely comfortable to wear. The circumaural headphones ensure it fits all ear sizes and gives a certain amount of breathability so that the headphones can be worn for hours without the ears getting sweaty. The headrest also has a good amount of padding. That said, the headphones are bulky and while Beyerdynamic bundles a travel case, commuting with them is not ideal.
For the second requisite, the Amiron Wireless delivers here as well. They sound fantastic. The audio is filled with rich detail with great frequency balance playing back the nuances that you’d have missed with another headphone. You can feel the bass but it doesn’t enhance it unnaturally, keeping it true to the song. The Amiron Wireless lasts for anywhere in between 24-27 hours but you can use a 3.5mm aux cable for a wired experience with no compromise on the audio quality.
Interestingly, the headphones do not support active noise cancellation but passive works well to cut the ambient noise. However, these are ineffective on roads.
The headphones support USB-C for charging. The right cup also hosts touch-based gesture controls that allows to play or pause, adjust volume with just a touch or swipe. They support the MIY app that helps to personalise audio settings.
All said and done, Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless, no doubt is an expensive offering but it delivers on its promise of top-notch audio quality albeit with a bulky design.
