Beyerdynamic Amiron Review

Beyerdynamic Amiron Review

Last Updated on by Daniel Lawrence

The Beyerdynamic Amiron Home has the same price and technical specifications as the DT 1990 Pro, which makes one believe that the differences are only cosmetic. With open earbuds that cover the entire ear canal, they use the same 45mm Tesla element. Listening to the Amiron Home, however, reveals that it sounds very different from the pro model.

Additionally, even if they come with a minijack cable, they cannot be plugged into the mobile. In this case, it is plugged into the headphones on both earphones, using the minijack cable. Thus, a balanced cable can be substituted if desired. For testing, I used the Shiit Magni 3+ headphone amplifier, which is similar to the Amiron Pro amplifier.

Having a resistance of 250 ohms and a sensitivity of 102 dB, it goes without saying that mobile phones are obsolete. At least with Audiquest Cobalt, it works, but you need more power to make it work. Amiron Home, unlike the DT 1990 Pro, does not come with extra ear pads, and so you will need to bend the solid hoop of light metal so that the earbuds are angled in order to ensure an optimal seal against the head.

Its carrying comfort is exemplary, as it is on the pro model. You won’t notice the weight, and the soft pillows are comfortable to wear even over time. The pro model’s one cable was better than the two that tie the other headphones together. Despite the gray design of the earbuds and the silver-gray metal details, the sound here is surprisingly soft compared to the all-black DT 1990 Pro.

The home version sounds warm, comfortable, and rich rather than gray. The bass is impressive, not of the basement variety, but unusually full-bodied and vibrant for a pair of open headphones. Despite the middle tone’s softness and golden tone, it is not without detail or resolution. Listening to the treble may be relaxed, but it only makes listening more comfortable over time.

In Amiron Home, the sound is not as dissolved and weightless as in Hifiman Sundara, and the sound image is warmer and the bass is clearly fuller; however, the definition is less clear. For home listening, these are far superior to the DT 1990 Pro, since the treble is more balanced with the silky soft midrange that you get here. It’s a good all-around headphone, and if you want a little extra bass, Amiron Home is an even better choice.


It’s rare to find an open headphone with substantial bass reproduction as the Beyerdynamic Amiron Home. It is so easy to listen to music through the headphones that you don’t want to take them off. In addition to the comfortable fitting of such large headphones, you simply enjoy the music more when the headphone’s sound balance does not interfere with the music.
