Sound miracle with weakness in processing

Matthias9601, 25.08.2015
I am totally satisfied with the A2 and if it were only about the sound quality and the ease of use, I would give him the full score.

Without knowing other headphones, I have the impression that the A2 really takes everything out of a recording what the recording studio has hingeinckt. My new headphone, the Beyerdynamic T1, is also quite close to this goal, directly connected to the CD player. But for the last bit of transparency and depth, the combination of both devices is necessary.

I once heard that the boxes make 80% of the sound of a good system. The same applies in my opinion also for headphones. So you should not expect miracles. My older headphone, the Sennheiser HD 650 also sounds clearer on the A2, but it is not raised beyond the limits of its class and continues to emphasize the mids. When comparing both headphones, I feel like I have to move from a comfortable chamber into a mirrored room. On the A2 operated both rooms are larger and The musicians seem to use better instruments.

A very important feature of the A2 is the remote control. Whoever considers this superficial must have very long arms. I certainly do not understand why there is also only one hifi device on the market, which renounces it. If I had read worse reviews than the one in the MacRewind, I would still zahnknirschend to a competition model, which regularly forces me to stand up and turn on the regulator.

The fact that the now more critical section is longer than the others does not mean that it is more important. It is only about things that I, which I am rather a visual man, can describe more precisely:

The A2 is not well-processed for a device of this price class. My first device had a humming power supply and was replaced by Thomann without any problems and in record time. Compliment this! This defect is therefore expressly NOT the subject of my criticism. He helped me, however, to determine how differently two copies of the A2 can be. At the High End in Munich, I looked at a third. They were all unique. The battery cover of the remote control wiggles, the other the power button. And the volume control feels different at different sections of a full rotation, but always unpleasant. I know this is due to the hanging porti. However, something should be better solved! The remote control again has cast edges like something that comes from a surprise egg. But: It works perfectly and I'm glad it exists.

Conclusion: I can recommend the A2 good conscience, but Beyerdynamic would like a higher degree of quality consciousness in the supposedly insignificant details of their products. For the T1 I would deduct for a dirty cable a tenth point. But not anymore. At the A2 it was a whole.

Beyerdynamic A2

jean-do , 17.10.2017
I leave Schubert's wanderers nachtlied at once to give you my impressions of this ampicasque. I did not want to buy one of its devices that make the buzz 6 months and found without a distributor, or in the opportunities shortly after. I have a Beyer helmet a T1 generation 2, so I naturally trust the engineers of this venerable house. The appearance of the device has a small laboratory side, I regret the lack of a real on / off switch, and the interior lighting components leaves me skeptical. For the rest it's all good, neutral, dynamic, transparent and no particular sound signature as it is often found on certain transistors (Class A) or tubes, and that eventually weary. My CD player is a Linn the association is rather successful, after comparing several modulation cables (Linn, Mogami, Dnm) I finally chose the Dnm for its great neutrality and its definition. In all cases, the impression that comes out of the plays is that to access the truth of recordings without adding anything, regardless of the style of music listened to. The highest quality of Beyerdynamic A2 is its honesty. Level construction, nothing to say, it's clean, no show, a device as we would like to see more often. Before this purchase I listened to many devices from 1500 to 2000 euros, I'm happy with my choice, thank you, Beyerdynamic.
