These days, there is a dizzying array of audio equipment available for purchase to consumers and companies alike. Microphones, headphones, wireless audio systems and conference systems have proliferated across the world, becoming staples in the lives of most citizens of industrialized nations. A few people have even begun to take these devices for granted, being so used to having easy access to electronic audio that they don’t even think about the devices that pipe sound out of their MP3 players or laptops. It’s hard to blame them; there are literally thousands of different such products available on the market place. Some of these devices are simple and cheap, existing only to get a single job done as quickly as possible, with little regard for long term use. Others exist for the long haul, being manufactured to higher standards. One such manufacturer is Beyerdynamic.
