beyerdynamic Introduces Xelento Wireless High-End In-Ear Headphones

February 19 2019, 01:10
Following the success of the original Xelento Remote in the high-end circles since their introduction in 2017, beyerdynamic now announced the launch of Xelento Wireless, combining the high-quality in-ear headphone featuring Tesla drivers and aptX HD Bluetooth to create an unparalleled listening experience anywhere. The challenge for the German brand was obviously how to match the same quality experience of the wired Xelento in a wireless product, without compromising the drivers' performance.

beyerdynamic says the new Xelento Wireless will offer the same outstanding quality and exciting musical experience of the original Xelento Remote when combining the miniaturized Tesla drivers with aptX HD Bluetooth technology and adding MOSAYC sound personalization by Mimi Defined. 

"Xelento wireless bridges the gap for convenient on-the-go solutions and sophisticated luxury headphones by creating a single solution to combine two worlds. Xelento’s drivers and acoustic design provide uncompromising sound with Bluetooth connectivity to enable comfortable listening in any environment," states the company. 

Xelento’s breathtaking Tesla drivers are recognized among audio enthusiasts for their incredible sound, precise impulses, exceptional transparency and acoustic balance ranging from tight bass to detailed highs. "Featuring a sleek design, the Xelento wireless is both an exquisite piece of jewelry and an audiophile listening device creating a platinum state for in-ear headphones," they add.
To increasing the product's appeal, Xelento incorporates MOSAYC sound personalization by Mimi Defined, developed by Berlin-based  Mimi Hearing Technologies, to create a customized listening experience through beyerdynamic’s MIY (Make it Yours) app. Listeners can complete a short hearing test to identify the specific characteristics of their ears and adjust the playback to fit the profile. The innovative MOSAYC technology by Mimi Defined restores the faded pieces of the acoustic image to perfect the individual listening experience.
More importantly for wireless audio, beyerdynamic Xelento Wireless supports the Qualcomm aptX HD codec to enable the transmission of 24-bit signals in full resolution, providing the best possible performance of the high-end drivers. Additionally, the Xelento Wireless is compatible with aptX and AAC to provide connectivity with every conventional playback device, including iPhones.

Due to its remote control and the integrated microphone, the Xelento wireless is perfect for operation with smartphones. The slim battery in its elegant aluminum cylinder housing can be attached with a clip and allows for up to eight hours of continuous playtime. The battery can be charged over USB; when the battery is empty the Xelento wireless can also be plugged in with the cable supplied. In extensive tests with ear measurements and moulds, the beyerdynamic engineers researched and analyzed the generally tricky issue of fitting the in-ear headphones to the listeners’ ears. The seven sets of anatomically designed ear tips in various sizes provide an optimal fit. For added choice, the Xelento wireless also includes Comply Foam ear tips.
