Made in Germany Handmade in Germany. Handmade, discrete electronics reveal the finest details of music with highest precision.

A 2 Technical Features

The glass cover of the A 2 is shielded to protect the device against electromagnetic radiation. During production when the glass is still a fluid, it is coated with titanium oxide in a pyrolitic procedure so that a conductive surface is created at the bottom.

The imprint of the transparent sound waves on the glass cover is made with a ceramic colour which is burnt into the glass at a temperature of 650° C making it extremely long-lasting and resistant.

As a little reminder of the year the company beyerdynamic was founded, the infrared remote control sends the code “1924� with each keystroke. When the A 2 identifies the correct code, the requested command will be performed.
