An in-ear of superlatives: Blue BYRD ANC
The new top model of the BYRD in-ear series from beyerdynamic sets standards in all areas: The headphones offer a rich, detailed and perfectly tuned sound and feature cutting-edge technologies – including ANC and MOSAYC. The stylish design impresses with high-quality materials and optimum wearing comfort.
The in-ear headphones have been specially adapted to the shape of the human ear and are particularly slim. They fit perfectly in any situation, do not protrude from the auricle and will not press on the ear even when the user is lying on their side.
The neck strap made of soft, smooth polymer, five pairs of eartips and robust cables with a velvety surface ensure not only a pleasant wearing comfort, but also maximum durability and minimum cable noise. The eartips and protective grilles can be easily cleaned or replaced. Decorative panels made of anodised and glass-bead blasted aluminium create visual highlights.
Optimal operation and best sound quality
Technical highlights such as digital active noise cancelling with hybrid technology and MOSAYC sound personalisation are rounded off in the Blue BYRD ANC by the latest audio codecs for Bluetooth® transmission such as Qualcomm® aptX™ for Android and AAC for iOS devices. Support for aptX™ Low Latency ensures virtually latency-free, lip-synchronous transmission of sound from compatible sources such as TVs, Notebooks and Tablets.
The universal three-button remote control offers maximum convenience when the Blue BYRD ANC is used as a headset and is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. This allows flexible control of media playback, calls or personal assistants (Google, Siri). As a convenient alternative to the remote control, the headphones have a volume control knob.
The high-quality microphone from beyerdynamic and Qualcomm® cVc™ technology increase speech intelligibility when making phone calls. With up to 18 hours of battery life with ANC disabled and up to ten hours with ANC, the headphones are a reliable companion for every day. They are recharged in no time via USB type C and thus ready for use at any time, even when travelling.
Active noise cancelling without compromise
Simply forget the world and listen to your favourite music in comfort and ease – beyerdynamic uses digital active noise cancelling with hybrid technology to eliminate environmental sounds. To achieve perfect noise cancellation, it combines microphones on the outside of the casing with microphones inside the ear cup to detect unwanted sounds.
These get cancelled out with a counter-noise wave produced by the integrated technology. The result is astounding: noise simply does not reach the eardrums and all that is left are perfect silence and clear, crisp music. This state-of-the-art hybrid ANC technology and decades worth of experience guarantee best sound quality without compromise, satisfying even the most discerning ears.
But this is only the beginning: With the innovative MOSAYC sound personalisation, these headphones surpass all ANC models to date. The combination of technologies marks an outstanding novelty and will revolutionize the headphone market for years to come.
Dynamic sound personalization via MIY app
Hearing is a highly individual experience that changes over the course of a lifetime. Like in a mosaic picture, individual pieces get lost, changing the acoustic picture, rendering it incomplete or fading. Subtle details get blurred out, single frequencies or tones vanish.
The innovative MOSAYC sound personalisation by beyerdynamic restores the picture, using Mimi Defined™. An individualised hearing profile is calculated after a hearing test in the MIY app for Android and iOS devices. This test is based on the research by Mimi Hearing Technologies in Berlin. With the resulting personalised hearing profile, the sound of the Blue BYRD gets adjusted to the individual hearing capability of its wearer. It replenishes the missing pieces of the mosaic so to speak, to attain a complete and brilliant sound picture that shines in all its vivid colours and vibrant details.
The individualised listening profile is also stored inside the Blue BYRD, so that it can be used with every wireless source – even without the app. In the future, all headphones by beyerdynamic with MOSAYC sound personalisation will feature a distinct logo. With MOSAYC beyerdynamic continues the successful cooperation with Mimi Hearing Technologies and uses the latest generation of Mimi Defined™.
