The story behind beyerdynamic
In 1924, Eugen Beyer founded “Elektrotechnische Fabrik Eugen Beyer” in Berlin. Fascinated by the motion pictures that sprung from the rise of cinema in the early 1920s, he felt it was his mission to complete the moving images with sound. Beyer, who had studied at Technische Universität Berlin, then started manufacturing his own loudspeakers for cinema. During the 1930s, the company began producing headphones, starting with the first set of dynamic headphones, the DT 48 – the prototype of the beyerdynamic DT series that is still produced today. It wasn’t until the 1950s that the company became known as beyerdynamic and relocated to Heilbronn. Here they had to start all over again after the company premises was completely destroyed during World War II. Today, beyerdynamic is one of the leading global consumer electronics companies worldwide.

How Mimi Sound Personalization works
Enabling Mimi Sound Personalization on beyerdynamic headphones is quick and easy. Users take a two-minute hearing test using the beyerdynamic MIY app. After taking the hearing test, their hearing ID is saved to the device, and they can enjoy audio that is perfectly tailored to their hearing profile. The result: an ultimate sound experience.
