Beyerdynamic has presented the PRO X series, which so far includes four models. These are two pairs of headphones, closed DT 700 PRO X and open DT 900 PRO X, as well as two pairs of microphones: dynamic M 70 PRO X and condenser M 90 PRO X.
Both headphone models use the same Stellar.45 dynamic driver, which is manufactured at Beyerdynamic’s facilities in Heilbronn, Germany. The speaker features a three-layer structure with a middle damping layer, a neodymium magnet and a mass balanced pure copper coil.
The DT 700 PRO X are marketed by the manufacturer as studio headphones for recording and monitoring, while the DT 900 PRO X are designed for “critical listening”. Both models have the same impedance of 48 ohms.
The headphones are supplied with two detachable mini-XLR cables. Traditionally for Beyerdynamic, the ear cushions are decorated with velor. The headband features soft memory foam for comfort even during long sessions. Spring steel frames are traditionally durable, and many of the headphone parts are replaceable.
In terms of microphones, both the M 70 PRO X and M 90 PRO X, according to Beyerdynamic, were designed for beginners looking for detailed sound at an affordable price. The dynamic microphone M 70 PRO X is recommended by the manufacturer for use in live broadcasts and podcasts.
The condenser is good for recording vocals and instruments. Both microphones feature a minimalist black aluminum housing with steel meshes. Parts of the structure – capsule, printed circuit board and connector – can be replaced.
In the US, the cost of the Beyerdynamic DT 700 PRO X and DT 900 PRO X headphones was $300. The M 70 PRO X is $300 and the M 90 PRO X is $350.
