Features and design
As solid as the build quality of the T70p appeared, we were surprised to find what looked like a touch of axle grease on the slim arms that secure the earpieces to the headband as we pulled them down to adjust the size. The silver strips slid almost precariously into the grooves, feeding into black inserts that had a lot more give on the vertical axis than we expected. However, the grease rubs off, and as we soon found out, the arm pieces’ leeway serves to provide an impressive level of adjustment.
The T70p’s velvety-black microfiber stretches over a thick layer of padding encircling the interior of the ear cups as well as the entire underside of the wide headband. The soft skin meets at the topside of the headband at a surprisingly clunky line of plastic, another strange indication of the headset’s dichotomous blend of luxury and frugality. Still, we’re always hoping such signs indicate the emphasis on engineering over aesthetic, and the smooth, two-toned finish on the oversized ear cups goes a long way in conveying quality.
The ear cups are suspended from their slim metal arms on dual axes, allowing for plenty of horizontal movement to supplement the vertical give of the arms themselves. Pushing the heavy pads together while music is playing creates almost complete silence, exhibiting the T70p’s excellent passive noise isolation. Inside the pads rest extremely wide screens which cover the headset’s Tesla-powered voice coils. Beyerdynamic claims an enormous frequency range for the drivers of 5Hz-40kHZ which, incidentally, is over twice the maximum range of human hearing.
Simply put, the T70p is one of the most comfortable headsets we’ve had the pleasure of putting on. While fit is always subjective, the ear cups are large enough to cover almost any ear size, and the headset’s ample padding provided a generous level of support. Though the microfiber coverings could potentially cause some overheating at high temperatures, we had no issue in a normal setting. We wore the headset for hours at a time, unable to dig up a single warranted complaint.
A metaphor that kept cropping up while examining the T70p’s sound signature was that of natural light. White, clean, and vividly transparent, the headset seemed to expose everything it touched with a gleaming brilliance. Like sunlight, there were moments during our evaluation where sounds were a shade bright, especially in relation to higher percussion. But the T70p also had a prismatic effect when focused through the lens of our music library, revealing every element in a multicolored projection to create a gorgeous display before us.
