Beyerdynamic Xelento Remote is one of the highest priced in-ear headphone (earphone) designed to produce audiophile caliber sound.
Xelento Remote comes with 7 different pairs of custom silicone eartips (XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL, and 3XL), 3 pairs (S/M/L) of genuine Comply foam eartip with a wax guard filter. This in an indication of the focus Beyerdynamic has put into ensuring the perfect fit. The housing is made from super lightweight plated plastic.
Equipped with miniaturized Tesla technology, its soundstage is wide, wrapping around you from left to right, while depth extends a few rows in front of you but not too much out of your head, giving high intimacy to the sound. The bass is powerful yet well controlled. The overall sound produced by Xelento Remote rivals many larger over-ear audiophile caliber headphones. Not an easy feat.
As with other high-end headphones from Beyerdynamic, Xelento Remote is handmade in its factory in Germany with Mercedez-Benz like refinement.
Take a look at Audeze’s Planar Magnetic iSine 20 in-ear headphone before making your purchase decision. It is a worthy alternative with different sound characteristics.
