Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro Headphone Review
With products such as the Beats Studio, the Parrot Zik or the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 on the market, it is increasingly difficult for manufacturers to gain a place in the sun as the area became competitive. We will be reviewing the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro today to see if it too can be placed among the best headphones like the ones mentioned above.
Design and Features of Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro
The first thing that comes to mind when you unpack the Custom One Pro from its box – which, it must be said is not dreaming compared to some competitors – is certainly the size of the headphones, extremely wide even for a circum- Aural. Although the weight of the new model of the German manufacturer is not excessive (only 290g). It is particularly impressive as compared to a Sennheiser Momentum. However, it is not a disadvantage and it is sometimes good to prioritize sound and audio performance rather than portability. Once again, it all depends on the use you want to make your headphones.
The cable of the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro headphone is detachable. Therefore avoids an additional bulk at the trap door, the old habits where you had to wrap the cord around your arch.
Regarding the look of the headphone, this one has very dark tones. But it is possible to change the external plates of the headphones by ordering others on the site of Beyerdynamic. The hoop can also be customized with white, beige or brown colors to build a headphone of your taste. A particularity not necessarily essential but still interesting at a time when the headphone are not only audio devices but also full accessories for fashion enthusiasts.
A Very Comfortable Headphone
Whether it is the cover of the arch or the side of the pads, the padding is really very good. The headphone provides exceptional comfort and the pads are particularly comfortable and well ventilated. All this ensures a very good support and your movements should not make it move even one centimeter when it is positioned on your head. It would almost feel like wearing a hi-fi headphone without the inconvenience of weight, a real success.
Audio Performance of Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro Headphone
Beyerdynamic is a German company specialized in audio equipment for professionals. In recent years, the brand has also embarked on an equally professional approach to the consumer market.
For its Custome One Pro, the manufacturer uses ultra-thin membranes on its internal loudspeakers of 16Ohmz bringing a clarity rarely equaled.
During our testing, the results were very positive. Undeniably the professional touch brought by the long years of Beyerdynamic experiments and the headphone sound terribly well. Its performance is really close to Fidelio M1 or a Bose AE2. The sounds are very precise and clear. It becomes possible to distinguish each of the instruments rather than a big mix as on some headphones.
The icing on the cake is obviously this “Custom” option available on the side of the headphones in the form of a small dial to switch between 4 different bass modes depending on the music you are listening to. The most impressive thing about it is not the speed at which the mode is activated when changing position but especially the quality of bass proposed by the Custom One Pro. Without impinging on mediums and treble, they add a real depth to your favorite tracks.
The Beyerdynamic Custom Pro is truly one of the best headphones available in an average price range. Whether it is audio quality with a well detailed and balanced sound or its irreproachable comfort, there is not much to complain about this model. Let us add a very practical functionality to manage in a moment the bass among 4 possible modes and the possibility to customize the look to your taste – by ordering parts in new colors on the site of the manufacturer – and you get a complete and powerful headphone.
