Xelento remote: Have proven themselves outstanding in every parameter 07/2017

Title: Beyerdynamic Xelento review: $999 tech jewelry
Author: Vlad Savov

"These (...) earphones (...) have proven themselves outstanding in every parameter worth considering. The Xelento are that rare product that will fulfill the desires of both the niche enthusiast and the casual listener in search of something special."


"These Beyerdynamic buds have the sound quality and resolution to compete with anything else you can plug into your ears — and they win most head-to-head contests by virtue of their impeccable comfort."


"It’s the combination of the superior sound with the perfectly polished metal enclosures of the Xelentos — which are simultaneously gorgeous to look at and delightful to wear — that wins me over. It also helps to have the assurance that Beyerdynamic is treating these as its flagship earphones and is making them in Germany under its strictest quality control."


"The tonal balance of the Xelentos does favor treble and the mid-range more than my favorite headphones (...). But even as an admitted basshead, I appreciate the precision and tautness of the bass that these earphones pump out. It’s like a meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant: my plate is never as overfull as I’d like it to be, but everything I’m tasting is sensational."


"Still, if you measure them solely on the question of whether they will delight or disappoint you, the Beyerdynamic Xelentos are an undeniable winner."

Xelento remote: One of the truest, cleanest takes on wall-of-sound 02/2017

Title: Review: Beyerdynamic Xelento Remote – Anthem
Author: Nathan


“If you’re a girl, or a guy with very small ears, both Xelento, and AKT8iE are two of the only high-end earphones that will fit your ears. I’ve now met three people that get on neither with the AKT8iE chassis, nor selection of ear tips. Xelento’s shape hasn’t changed, but as I mentioned above, it comes with more ear pieces. Two of them are massive, oblong things. They don’t work in my ears, but they may work on yours. The Comply tips, however, work brilliantly.”


“Both earphones get just as loud at the same volume levels through my iPhone SE. The AKT8iE’s extra 1dB of sensitivity makes no difference to my ears. This means that both earphones hiss mildly through moderate quality sources. Both earphones reveal a small amount of hiss from the IPhone SE.”


“While the AKT8iE MKII is warmer than Xelento, it’s not by much, and Xelento’s bass sticks out more. Neither is a basshead earphone. From top to bottom, Xelento sounds cooler. Its bass stereo image pushes wider, a result of which is that its lows feel punchier, crisper, and quicker. Xelento’s bass reaches lower, though, enough to reveal slightly more yawning detail in the opening seconds to Markus Schulz’s Mainstage. Of course, the AKT8iE’s warmth advertises it against Xelento’s composure. In reality, both earphones produce some of the quickest-reacting bass in the dynamic world.”

“While low-frequency differences between the two are iterative, mid-frequency differences are contrastive. Hardcore fans of the AKT8iE may dismiss Xelento. Quite simply, compared to the AKT8iE’s smooth transition from upper bass to mids, it is mildly disjointed. It’s almost as if the first post-bass steps drop rather than bridge the two frequency bands. It’s not a huge rift; it’s the sort you might hear from certain generation II hybrid earphones.”

“Against Astell & Kern’s warmth, Beyerdynamic chose impact. Mids run out of stronger, more explosive bass, flat into the highs, coolly unaccented. There are times when I miss the AKT8iE’s warmth, but it’s only really after listening to it for hours. The converse isn’t necessarily true.”

“I appreciate Xelento’s flat mid range. I appreciate their bell-like clarity and wide berth for female vocals. I appreciate Xelento’s more energetic more Team Beyer highs. I appreciate Xelento’s dry resonance, especially when listening to hard electronic and heavy metal, where accent is the last thing I’m looking for. And yet, when it comes to male vocals, I prefer the AKT8iE MKII’s warmth. The problem with the AKT8iE MKII is that, no matter how feeble, its warmth impacts everything. Xelento’s clear, higher pressure highs are distinct from mids and bass, cutting a truly world-class profile.”

“Xelento more stringently follows equal loudness curve rules. It is a little brighter. It is not sibilant. Its bass is a little more impactful. But it is not a bass head earphone. Its mids are flatter and cooler, and though slightly, wetter than typical reference headphones. I have a feeling that people unimpressed with the AKT8iE’s mild warmth and central voicing may find Xelento’s width and mild u-curve enticing. Add to that a cool, high pressure low range, and you have a strong-arm take on the typical wide-midrange reference earphone.

Before I forget, Xelento’s stage presence stretches really really wide, pushing against left and right extremes. It arches slightly back: an IMAX cinema from the 5th row if you will. It reaches high. Yet, despite excellent instrument separation, it doesn’t bend away from itself to offer much depth. It is one of the truest, cleanest takes on wall-of-sound I’ve ever had in my ears.“


“Well done.”
