German audio equipment manufacturer beyerdynamic today launched an all new DT 240 professional monitor headphones which are designed for musicians, podcasters and filmmakers.
Thanks to the low-ohm acoustic transducers (34 ohm), the DT 240 PRO requires little amplifier power and works just the same on studio mixers as on the laptop or smartphone, delivering ample output levels in all cases, which means there's no need to switch headphones during production.
The headphone features specially shaped ear cups that makes the DT 240 PRO very easy to handle and beyerdynamic describes this mixture of on-ear and over-ear design as "compact over ear", where both ears are firmly enclosed, but the monitor can still be transported in a notebook or camera bag.
A detachable coiled cable and replaceable ear pads further adds to the extended life of the headphones even over years of continuous use.
The headphones come in matt black finish, and look as good on professional SLR cameras or portable recorders as they do on private audio players or smartphones, the company said.
Priced at Rs 7,500, the DT 240 Pro will be available from authorised specialist stores and online at www.beyerdynamic.com, starting from November.
Creative minds can work anywhere with these headphones – start a project in one place and continue working on it somewhere else. At the mixing desk, behind the camera or on the train, the DT 240 PRO ensures seamless audio control without compromising on quality. At the same time, the wearer scarcely notices the headphones are there, that's how ergonomically the audio specialist from Heilbronn has designed the DT 240 PRO, the company added.
