PLASA 2010: Beyerdynamic release new headsets

Great deals on musical instruments

Beyerdynamic will exhibit a number of new products at this year's PLASA show including, the innovative DT 290 and DT 790 professional series headsets with integral level limiters.

The world famous beyerdynamic DT 290 series headsets have undergone a major makeover for this years show.

The new DT 290 offers an improved pivoting gooseneck microphone and further enhanced immunity against Radio Frequency Interference.

With its highly flexible microphone boom, the DT 290 ensures that the microphone is always where the operator needs it.

Also on show will be the new DT 790 and DT 797 headsets designed to combine high quality audio with long-term wearing comfort.

Both models incorporate a new pivoting gooseneck microphone boom and first-class microphone capsules.

Specifically designed for communications in high-noise environments, the DT series delivers the highest quality audio and speech intelligibility.

This new option, available throughout the range guarantees that an operator's hearing is protected when the headphone is used over a prolonged period.

Designed to meet health and safety criteria, German audio specialist beyerdynamic have created a passive circuitry which achieves an audio response similar to that of a complex, expensive VCA limiter.

Beyerdynamic's ingenious two-phase limiting concept incorporates a smooth decrease of the audio signal by 6dB then a hard, protective brick-wall limit of the audio signal.

This two step process ensures that overall sound quality is maintained throughout any peak in a signal. The limiter threshold can be defined by the customer when ordering.

The new limiters are available in the DT250 and DT770 Pro headphone series and the DT290 and DT790 series headsets.
