Maybe you are thinking wireless and Beyerdynamic do not go along together. The company has an extensive lineup of headphones and audio accessories.
They are very successful at offering great over-ear and in-ear headphones. And the significant part is that the company provides its audio accessories at both budget and premium prices.
However, none of the earphones from Beyerdynamic were true-wireless. Well, Beyerdynamic decided to change that by announcing the Free Byrd.
It is the company’s first-ever TWS (True Wireless Stereo) buds, and it packs a good amount of punch.
Coming from a headphone specialist brand, you might not expect much from the Beyerdynamic Free Byrd. However, you should know that the Soul Byrd, a wired in-ear, has consistently been in the top charts of many reviewers. So, does the success translate to Beyerdynamic Free Byrd?
First of all, the Free Byrd packs a proper ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) which will activate with a tap. The transparency mode of the TWS will let the outside sound in, allowing you to stay aware of your environment.
But that is not all! The buds come with impressive battery life. With the ANC on, you will get eight hours of runtime.
Put the charging case into the equation, and you will be looking to get a total of 24 hours of battery life from the TWS. And when you switch the ANC off, the total will be a staggering 30 hours and 11 hours from the buds.
The buds also come with AAC and aptX Adaptive codecs, which means they will have proper support for both iOS and Android.
In the packaging, you will get five different sizes of silicone tips. It even comes with three foam tips, enabling you to carry out sports activities without any issue. Talking of sports, the Beyerdynamic Free Byrd has an IPX4 rating as well.
Other than that, the Free Byrd packs Qualcomm cVc technology. For that reason, you can rely on it entirely when it comes to voice calls. The buds also have Google Fast Pair, which will make the pairing process seamless. And for Bluetooth 5.2, you will not need to worry about the reception range.
Additionally, the Beyerdynamic Free Byrd is compatible with both Siri and Alexa voice assistants. And when it comes to the design, these buds are pretty much reminiscent of a guitar pick.
This design will make the TWS sit flush with your ears. Also, there is a low-latency mode. That will minimize the lag in the reception and allow you to ace fast-paced games.
Lastly, the Beyerdynamic Free Byrd bundles with an app. It can perform hearing tests and then automatically tweak the output of the buds accordingly.
In other words, the Beyerdynamic Free Byrd can offer a personalized listening experience. You can even change the EQ manually if you want to.
