Beyerdynamics, a German brand that's been making audio products for almost a century, has launched Free Byrd (not the song!) TWS. The venerable company's premium headphones are the first compact true wireless earbuds with a noise cancelling feature.


TL;DR

  • Beyerdynamics launched its first true wireless headphones with ANC.
  • The Free Byrd earbuds feature both transparency and noise cancelling.
  • Beyerdynamics Free Byrd will retail for $249.

Free Byrd features and codecs

The Free Byrd headphones boast a small form factor while fitting 10 mm audio drivers. It enables 10 to 22,000 Hz frequency response. A low latency option is available for gamers and streamers. Additionally, the Free Byrd earbuds get IPX4 water resistance and Qualcomm's custom dual microphone technology.

In terms of codecs, the wireless earphones support Bluetooth 5.2 with compatibility to adaptive aptX, AAC, and SBC. Similar to the ANC-ready Mifo S Sport we reviewed recently, users can take advantage of the transparency mode. It can be enabled through a simple touch gesture on the earbud, which is very handy when you're in public places. There's also an LED lighting system on each bud.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
