Tesla Technology

Both headphones are powered by transducers based on Beyerdynamic’s Tesla technology. Developed and manufactured at the Beyerdynamic headquarter in Heilbronn, Germany, the T1 and T5 both have yokes of anodized, brushed aluminium and their headbands are covered with Alcantara.

The T1’s housing cover has a precise perforated pattern that was machined in the lacquered stainless steel using a complex production process. The T5 is based on the design of its sister headphone. As a closed model, its housing cover is an elaborate structure with brushed and lacquered aluminium.

Earpads

Both models have earpads that ensure that the sound is balanced and make them comfortable to wear. This is achieved thanks to a memory foam filling of their earpads, which adapt to the head’s shape through heat and pressure. Breathable soft velour covers for the T1’s earpads, making them fit snugly around the ears. The earpads of the T5 are made from synthetic leather, which helps to shield from external noises.

Cable

The T1 and T5 have textile-covered cables that are plugged in at both ends. The cover makes the cables more flexible. Because they have removable cables, they can be easily replaced. The textile sheathing also protects the high-purity OCC7N copper conductors, Both headphones can be enjoyed with mobile devices due to their 32 Ohm impedance.
