The name beyerdynamic is synonymous with headphones and microphones for studio use. the brand has some prestigious clients like the BBC which once used Sennheiser headphone for studio use, but in the past few years I’ve noticed that it appears to have switched to beyerdynamic. Today, beyerdynamic has just announced two new pairs of high-end studio headphones alongside a couple of microphones aimed at the new generation of podcasters and creators.

The two new pairs of headphones are the close-back DT 700 PRO X and the open-back DT 900 PRO X. They both claim to offer promise unprecedented performance while the new M 70 PRO X dynamic microphone and M 90 PRO X true condenser microphone have also been designed tfor new creators who need detailed sound at an affordable price. And whether they are used for live streaming or recording, the PRO X range has been designed with flexibility in mind. 

DT 700 PRO X and DT 900 PRO X 

The two new PRO X headphones embody what beyerdynamic is best known for, namely an impeccable sound quality and premium comfort levels. The closed-back DT 700 PRO X is ideal for home studio use as well as for working on-the-go with a laptop, tablet, or smartphone for recording. 

The open-back DT 900 PRO X headphones are a circumaural design for studio use when monitoring, mixing and mastering. The new STELLAR.45 drivers used in both pairs of headphones has been developed by beyerdynamic at its Heilbronn HQ and delivers a loud and powerful sound on all playback devices. The driver has a strong neodymium magnet and the voice coil is made with copper-plated, high-tech wire. The conductivity and weight of the wire are in perfect balance.

In combination with the newly developed three-layer speaker cone with an integrated attenuating layer, both the new PRO X headphones are efficient and easy to drive with an impedance of 48Ω. The transducers have a fast response and detailed transient reproduction that comes from the user of the lightweight voice coil that produces a reliable sound without distortion, even when used at high sound pressure levels. 

The new headphones are supplied with two mini-XLR cables, which can be easily changed or replaced with other connection options. Smooth grey velour ear pads and soft memory foam in the headband ensure a enhanced comfort without a feeling of pressure or discomfort, even after several hours of wear.

A robust spring steel bracket construction made with high-quality materials are designed to give the headphones a long service life. If necessary, most of the parts of the headphones can be easily replaced, making the DT 700 PRO X and DT 900 PRO X a great choice for professional use.

M 70 PRO X and M 90 PRO X Microphones 

The two new beyerdynamic’s microphones – M 70 PRO X and M 90 PRO X – are designed to meet the demands of today’s creators. The dynamic M 70 PRO X is ideal for broadcasting, podcasting and streaming, while the M 90 PRO X condenser microphone is best suited for recording vocals and instruments. 

Both microphones are characterized by a natural sound that beyerdynamic claims can reproduce detailed nuances and have a low-noise signal at all volume levels. An elastic system suspension, as well as the stable microphone spider, reduce unwanted sounds like footsteps, hand grips or keyboard sounds. A pop filter cuts out breathing noises and tames harsh plosive sounds.

The M 70 PRO X microphone is recommended for broadcasters who want great sound when broadcasting from home or when out on the road. It’s ideal for streamers, podcasters and YouTubers and has been optimized specifically for speech. Being a dynamic mic, it can almost completely block out surrounding noises to deliver the great sound that sounds as if the recordings were made in a studio, even when used in acoustically challenging environments.

With the new M 90 PRO X true condenser mic, beyerdynamic has created an XLR model for home or studio use. With a detailed sound and balanced signal-to-noise ratio, it’s ideal for vocals, instruments and voice recordings, such as voice-overs or narration. 

Both microphones have a clear and natural sound thanks to a tuned proximity effect. Each microphone can capture extended upper frequencies and capture the tiniest detail of a voice. The midrange frequencies have the usual power levels while the bass can best be described as natural. A low-noise operational amplifier and precise voltage regulator have been used to create a clear and warm sound. 

The new PRO X microphones have a minimalist black design with interchangeable parts, such as capsule, circuit board and connector. The high-quality aluminum housing and robust steel mesh protect the microphone and reduce the weight of the M 70 PRO X, enabling it to be used with a tripod or microphone arm.

Creators are at the center of beyerdynamic’s new campaign to promote the PRO X range. In collaboration with selected artists, the company demonstrates the capabilities of the new products. The singer Role, producers Dexter and iamnobodi, as well as the mixing and mastering engineer Volker “IDR” Gebhardt, have created a song using the new PRO X series and it’s available to see and hear online. The process of creating the song was accompanied by input from podcaster Miriam Davoudvandi. You can watch the video here and listen to the song on the beyerdynamic PRO X landing page here.

Availability & Pricing: The DT 700 PRO X and DT 900 PRO X are now available at for a recommended retail price of $299. The two microphones – M 70 PRO X and M 90 PRO X – cost $299 and $349 from the online store at www.beyerdynamic.com or specialist retailers.
