Beyerdynamic Aventho wireless on-ear headphones : Gorgeous, an understated design classic.

Review for beyerdynamic aventho used with iphone. Probably the best portable bluetooth headphones out there. However they’re overpriced and have a few niggles. They look great and are very comfortable. -sound quality is fantastic. At first i thought they were a little muddy on the vocals but i was just getting used to the warmer sound profile. After a few days i tried my old headphones again and they sounded horrible in comparison. -being able to customise a sound profile based on a hearing test is a great idea especially as i have some hearing damage. I’m yet to really test how much difference this makes to quality as when you enable/disable the feature the volume levels are different.

I own or have heard most of the bluetooth wireless headphones from bose, sennheiser, sony and b and o and these new beyerdynamic rate in the higher end for sound quality. The touch sensitive controls are very good and can be adjusted in software and the battery life so far is well over 20 hours from a full charge. While i will be using them mainly from my samsung note 8 the android software does not allow as yet for the custom sound setup. I set them up them initially on the ipad and it all seemed to work well. The software on the ipad seems quite robust although it did fail and disconnected from bluetooth during the first audio customisation. As i feel after a few days of listening. These rate very highly and sound even slightly better than the sony 1000 v2 wireless bluetooth headphones and the b&o h9. The two best i’ll for sound quality and seem to support aptx hd although my note 8 reverts to aptx non hd for audible books and tidal. They are also very comfortable. They do have no noise cancelling however so if you need that i would stick to bose 35 or the new v2 sony 1000 headphones.

These were a gift for someone else, but i had a chance to listen to them for a fair amount of time so can provide some thoughts. These sound wonderful, as long as you’re not a basshead. The low end, whilst not thin by any stretch, isn’t over-exaggerated and sounds tight and well defined. The rest of the range is detailed and enjoyable, the tesla drivers keeping up with complex and demanding music without ever sounding muddled. Soundstage is pretty much as you’d expect from closed back headphones, not expansive but there is clear separation between instruments and a good stereo image. In terms of wireless headphones, i have listened to the sony wh-1000xm2, bose quietcomfort 35 ii and own the b&w px. The aventho easily outclass the bose and sony. They are also more capable than the px, which can sound a bit congested at times. So why have i taken off a star?.There are usability issues with the miy app, and my giftee and i spent at least an hour or so trying and failing to set up the customised sound profile on an android oreo handset.

The beyerdynamic aventho are probably the best sounding headphones i’ve heard. After my beats solo3 died prematurely i was looking for new headphones with great sound and compact size for carrying around in my bag. I’ve tested bose qc35, plantronic backbeat pro2, b&w px. For sound quality and comfort the aventho set was definitely my favorite even without using the the personalized sound set up. Plantronics were way too base heavy for me and the b&w sounded strangely echo like with the vocals sounding like they came from inside a cardboard box. They also lacked detail in higher frequencies for my hearing, i love the look and feel of them although they are very heavy compared to the others. The qc35 we’re comfortable but i found the sound dull for my taste. The avetho sound is very rich and warm without being overly boomy in the base, detail and separation is fantastic. It’s a very personal choice (my wife preferred the b&w px apart from the weight) but i can’t recommend the aventho enough, even though they lack the noise canceling features of the others.

Surprisingly comfortable for on-ears. The miy app works flawlessly after the firmware update and really makes a huge difference in adjusting the rich sound of the aventho to my hearing. I made a hearing test and profile for my wife and the sound was too flat and bassy for me but perfect for her hearing (she’s a violinist and has a well trained hearing). My profile for her sounded too strong on high notes. So that’s the proof that evebody’s hearing is really different and the beyerdynamic profiling really works that out.

I had wanted these to be perfect from first hearing them. For me sound wise they beat b&o, b&w and bose. The new sony offering comes very close on sound, so close in fact the purchase decision will be down to features, style preference and comfort. Portable headphones are becoming so good these days that the decision is becoming more of go for what “you “ like and not merely follow the mass reviews. Here’s my opinion by featuresound – have patience, make a few eq tweaks and burn in for 24hrs 5/5comfort – for me, good clamp, comfortable pads, nice sized on ears, not too small 5/5build quality – premium and so far very impressive 5/5touch control – mmm , most will stick to using device controls but i have mastered the swipe forward to skip track though 3/5miy – brilliant headphones rush released with a hearing test and personalisation app that is rubbish and does not work on the majority of android devices i’ve tried. Don’t get me wrong the concept is great and beyerdynamic do state they will get this fixed but come on?. 1/5price – audiophile maybe, working as advertised no – these are worth £300 full stop. 3/5my overall decision has been to keep them as they sound sublime with a good source.

No noise cancellation, and from new the clamping pressure is uncomfortable if you wear glasses. Sound quality is very good, bluetooth is faultless, battery life brilliant. Controls tricky for changing tracks.

Superb at almost everything. Be aware that the volume slide function can be a little erratic, meaning you might accidentally blast the living daylights out of your ears – there is some latency in the control loop. Beautifully engineered, comfortable and. Built up to a standard, not down to a price.
