NEW: HS 800 Digital MANUFAKTUR - a customized handcrafted Aviation Headset

Heilbronn, October 2011: The HS 800 Digital pilot headset can now be ordered
as a customized version. The online configurator, similar to those of car industries, allows customers to select from a wide range of exclusive materials
and colours for different components including an individually laser engraved
text. beyerdynamic is handcrafting these customized headsets in Heilbronn:
A real unique item “Made in Germany”.

The HS 800 Digital is worth a closer look. At the AERO 2011, beyerdynamic presented this headset with the world’s first fully-adaptive digital noise reduction system. The adaptation to different noise levels is a continuous and automatic process – no need to press a button. In addition to the noise attenuation, the wearing comfort also sets standards. All pads are very soft and covered with fine genuine leather. The replaceable headband pad has a special shape to keep away pressure from the sensitive fontanelle at the top of the head. The moderate headband pressure and an optimal headband construction as well as the ultra-soft viscoelastic ear pads and the light weight provide maximum wearing comfort. This makes every single flight a relaxing experience without any stress due to noise.

In addition to the well-known Aviation headsets, customers will find the new
MANUFAKTUR at www.beyerdynamic.com/aviation where they can use their
imagination and let their creativity run free! The ear cups can be selected e.g. in a design of high gloss black piano lacquer, basalt grey metallic or burl wood.
The leather of the headband pad is either black or brown. Metal parts such as
decorative rings or the yoke can be anodised in different colours. For a small
extra charge a personal laser engraved text is also available on the yoke giving the option to have the own name or licence number on the headset. After placing your order in the beyerdynamic shop, your customized headset will be manufactured by hand.

For beyerdynamic a high quality standard is of utmost importance. Each HS 800
Digital is tested individually and provided with a serial number so that the saved test results can still be assigned later. Software updates are possible.

The high quality standards can also be seen in customer service. Providing
buyers with replacement parts for the products is no problem: “For our aviation
headsets we can provide suitable ear pads even after more than 20 years”,
explains David Thimm, Head of the Business Unit. A premium product such as
the HS 800 Digital feels like new – so that the wearer can enjoy the headset as on the first day.

International references
Not only pilots benefit from the high manufacturing standards. Professional
musicians from all over the world are keen on products that are “Made in
Germany”. Music legends such as “The Beatles”, Abba, David Bowie, Bob Dylan
or Udo Lindenberg have all sung using the microphones from beyerdynamic

Not less impressive: the references of the company’s conference business unit,
an important branch for the Heilbronn-based audio specialists with an almost 50 percent share in its turnover. The Federal Labour Court uses beyerdynamic
technology, as does the economic organisation OECD in Paris and the Ministry
of Finance in Nigeria. For example, they all use the patented Revoluto system:
the rectangular, puristically designed microphone units allow the speaker
considerably more freedom of movement than a classic gooseneck microphone.
