The Impacto is a very unique offering in the world of headphone audio. It is a USB DAC and headphone amp that is designed specifically to connect to beyerdynamic’s own headphones. I’ve never seen anything quite like it and am excited to dissect the concept and see just how well it works…
The Amiron Home is designed as a consumer-grade, high-end headphone in the same vein as the T1 and T5p headphones meaning that it uses the incredibly powerful Tesla magnet technology to create a highly responsive driver setup. I personally loved the results in the T1, but it had its imperfections with lots of noise (based on measurements taken over at Innerfidelity). The Amirons are a much more modern design though so I’m expecting improvements over the already excellent T1s.
If you’re reading this before the end of Sunday 5th November and you’re in Melbourne, get along to the International Hifi Show – it’s a fun way to spend a couple of hours if you’re into audio.
