Bey­er­dy­namic By­ron BT £59

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

The Bey­er­dy­namic By­ron head­phones have been the best bud­get in-ears around for a lit­tle while now. And it ap­pears these tal­ents run in the fam­ily. The Blue­tooth ver­sion of the same head­phones are also a bit of a bar­gain, and have dropped in price over the past 12 months from £90 to £60. The Bey­er­dy­namic By­ron BT ear­pieces are alu­minium and feel like they could take some rough treat­ment. There are also mag­nets on the back of each ear­bud, mean­ing they stick to­gether around your neck when not in use, like a tiny lit­tle gadget scarf.

If you want a more se­cure fit, per­haps for run­ning, you can at­tach a lit­tle in-ear hook as well as a pair of sil­i­cone tips. This is just an ex­tra bit of rub­bery scaf­fold­ing to avoid you ac­ci­den­tally pulling the pair out. Four pairs of tips are in­cluded, as well as a sim­ple pouch. Bey­er­dy­namic hasn’t piled too much of the bud­get into ac­ces­sories.

The By­rons’ bat­tery life of 7.5 hours is im­pres­sive. You recharge them us­ing the mi­crousb port on the re­mote hous­ing, which is cov­ered by a lit­tle rub­ber flap when not in use. The sound of the Bey­er­dy­namic By­ron BT is a lit­tle more for­ward than the wired By­ron. Bass is con­trolled, and the pres­ence of the up­per mids and highs are sig­nif­i­cantly more pro­nounced with in­creased def­i­ni­tion. The Bey­er­dy­namic By­ron BTS are am­bi­tious wire­less ear­phones, at­tempt­ing to level-up the sound of the stan­dard By­ron pair with bet­ter­con­trolled bass and sig­nif­i­cantly in­creased def­i­ni­tion. And ul­ti­mately, the fact they de­liver on that prom­ise and do so at this price makes them a Best Buy Award win­ner.
