Beyerdynamic PRO X line brings new mics and headphones
Posted on: Thursday 14th of October 2021
Comprising of two new headphones and two new mics, the PRO X series from Beyerdynamic is aimed at both studio users and ‘digital creators’ in more mobile environments.
The headphones – named DT 700 PRO X and DT 900 PRO X – will sit alongside the well-established DT lines, offering open- and closed-back designs that sit in the range at the approximate points their numberings suggest, but with a slightly different voicing characteristic; enhanced design (including their new Stellar 45 driver), improved manufacturing techniques and sustainability potential; and with specs that better suit use with mobile devices. Both are fully German-made models, with two mini-XLR cables that can be changed and replaced with other connection options. They also provide smooth velour ear pads and memory foam headband padding for long wear times.
The M 70 PRO X dynamic mic and the M 90 PRO X condenser are suited to livestreaming and music recording purposes respectively. The M 70 is speech-optimised top-address design with a cardioid pattern offering rejection characteristics needed to minimise noise from keyboards, and a casing design that extends frequency response and helps balance proximity effects. The M 90 PRO X is also cardioid pattern, but with a side-address functionality and 20Hz-20kHz frequency response designed for vocal and instrument use and low self-noise. Both come with integrated elastic shock mounts, and are also built at the Beyerdynamic base in Heilbronn.
The DT 700 PRO X and DT 900 PRO X are now available at a recommended retail price of €249, and the two microphones M 70 PRO X and M 90 PRO X are available from a recommended retail price of €249.00 and €299.00.
