A collaboration between Beyerdynamic and Astell&Kern, the AK T1p is handmade in Germany based on the highly regarded Beyerdynamic T1. This new headphone has the original’s semi-open design and detailed surface finish, along with an improved Tesla driver for a spacious sound. The impedance is lower, too, rated at 32 ohms for easier pairing with portable music players (try one of Astell&Kern’s high-end DAPs) and other mobile devices. Along with a 3.5-millimeter cable and a 6.3-millimeter adapter, you’ll get a 2.5-millimeter balanced cable for listening on the go. Add in the superb comfort that Beyerdynamic is known for, and you can enjoy a high-fidelity full-size headphone experience whenever and wherever you’d like.
Positive Feedback reviewer Robert H. Levi was particularly impressed with the AK T1p’s Tesla driver, saying, “I enjoy headphones with my portable A&K DAPs and with massive head amps, and these cans just fit the bill. I do believe the incredible Tesla driver is a real breakthrough, akin to the diamond tweeter, or to the Accuton speakers without voice coils, offering superior performance with greater efficiency. All of this accelerating research in personal listening products is yielding amazing results, and we are enjoying those benefits right now with the Astell&Kern T1p headphones. These are killer cans and receive my highest recommendation.”
