Astell&Kern AK T5p 2nd Generation Closed-Back Headphones
Astell&Kern and Beyerdynamic have teamed up to produce a handcrafted closed-back headphone with clarity across a vast frequency range, including powerful yet lucid bass.
The sound transducers in the T5ps use magnetic induction to deliver powerful, efficient sound in a vast range from 5 - 50,000Hz. Rather than using a coated diaphragm like in traditional dynamic drivers, the T5ps use a multilayer membrane that delivers deep bass and pristine highs. In addition, the magnetic field created by the transducer is twice as efficient as a traditional dynamic driver, which is how it achieves an ultra-low 32Ω impedance.
Silver and Copper hybrid Cable
By delegating bass frequencies to a 7N OCC copper wire and high-end frequencies to a 4N pure silver wire, the T5p achieves a balanced sound profile. No ear-splitting highs or aggressive, muddy bass. Just perfect clarity.
Handcrafted in Germany
When we heard that these headphones were handcrafted in Germany, we couldn’t help but picture aproned artisans working in some rustic woodshop as birds filled the Bavarian hills outside with music. That’s probably not the case. But still, these headphones were made by human hands with love and attention.
