    Bloom's Take

    Few brands can claim close to 100 years of experience in making headphones, and Beyerdynamic puts that experience to good use in every aspect of Xelento Remote 2nd Generation. Xelento isn’t a reference IEM for the studio or critical listening, but it’s addictive, relaxed, and versatile, with strong comfort and convenience. That combination of fun and detail help Xelento blur the line between consumer-friendly design and audiophile appeal.

    The Polished Sound Tuning of Xelento

    Thanks to a new, special acoustic resonator, an optimized high-frequency range ensures even more fine detail and lightness. Accordingly, the mid-range is extremely linear which is very effective at avoiding coloration. As a balanced counterpart to the treble and midrange, the bass is designed in such a way that even the lowest frequencies are reproduced with absolute precision. An additional acoustic high-tech filter makes this uniquely possible. The high external noise attenuation and the powerful drive of the transducer ultimately ensure the highest signal fidelity in terms of lowest total harmonic distortion.


    "Using a specially selected acoustic filter, I have damped the speaker so that the bass is reproduced accurately down to the lowest frequencies. You have never heard such bass before!"


    Oliver Schaal - Acoustic engineer at beyerdynamic

    TESLA Driven

    The TESLA.11 driver used does not only feature an incomparably high-resolution sound, but also an enormous high efficiency, which is achieved by a powerful neodymium ring magnet. As Hi-Res Audio certified in-ear headphones, the Xelento remote (2nd generation) reproduces the full sound of music tracks with unparalleled resolution and depth.

    Accessories

    The Xelento remote (2nd generation) is supplied with two cables. The included balanced 4.4mm Pentaconn cable allows the direct connection to high-quality hi-fi components with balanced outputs. This makes the Xelento remote (2nd generation) ideal for use with digital audio players and balanced hi-fi systems. Gold- plated plugs and silver-plated conductors are used inside the cable to ensure an outstanding sound. The 3-button remote control of the 3.5mm mini jack cable with high-quality microphone opens up all possibilities: calls, video conferences and use with voice assistants which can be flexibly accessed on the smartphone or laptop. When not in use, the Xelento remote (2nd generation) can be stored in the high-quality case supplied.

    Go Wireless

    Due to the MMCX plug-in system, the Xelento remote (2nd generation) can be expanded with the Xelento neck-band as a Bluetooth® version. Thanks to the latest codecs, wireless hi-fi sound can be enjoyed: Qualcomm® aptX™ HD, Qualcomm®aptX™ Adaptive and LHDC as well as the integrated digital and analogue converter with amplifier from the AKM specialist ensure that wireless sound enjoyment is possible on all devices – whether Android, iOS, Windows or Mac.

    Xelento's Premium Design

    The extremely slim and lightweight design with ergonomically shaped housings and perfectly adapted ear-tips are designed to fit the anatomy of the human ear ensuring outstanding comfort when wearing and a maximum external noise attenuation. In order to maximize the comfort while preventing annoying cable noise, the cable is worn behind the ear.

    As a special eye-catcher, the glossy housing is decorated with real gold. The Xelento logos are handmade of 24 carat gold and applied in a high-precision technical process.

    Due to the IPX4 certification, the Xelento remote (2nd generation) is also well protected from moisture when being on the move.

    Big Sound In A Little Bud!

    Beautiful IEMs that Look and Sound Great - I preferred the understated faceplate of Gen 1 but these are not over the top and are nice. My wife who shares nothing with me in this audio hobby and has no foreknowledge saw them and said "They look like jewelry". The new tips are more robust than Gen 1. They are a tad thicker and better keep their shape, fit better in the ear and the stems have more reinforcement so they don't rotate on the nozzle. I like them. The opening of the bore is the exact same shape and size of the nozzle so they don’t color the sound and because the firm elasticity of them, I get an exceptionally comfortable, seal and they sound great. Just one note on sizing, with almost every tip I use medium. For the Xelento ovals, I comfortably sealed by moved up to the XL.
    The stock cables, feature new improved MMCX Connectors. The 4.4 snapped together with a reassuring "Click" on both sides and I noticed that there is no rotation in the cable; the fit is very tight and is more than sufficient to hold them in place. This is what an MMCX connection should be and I prefer it to a 2 Pin. The cable feels identical to the original so I can assume that it is. With the new connectors being translucent it is almost impossible to see the tiny "R" and "L" on the housings. I had to take the cable out into the bright sun to see the markings. The right does have a small raised dot to indicate right but it is so small it's almost indiscernible. I took Red and Blue sharpies marked the bottom inner ring of the MMCX connector Red and Blue for left and right. It seems like a small thing but BeyerD has thought of so many details in the IEMS, the accessories, the exquisite packaging that causing the customer to figure what is left and right seems like a glaring oversight and honestly, this is my only complaint about the package. Come on, you thought of everything - please mark the left and right appropriately.
    As for sound, straight out of the box I noted to that they were a full sounding IEM "U" not "V" with good bass extension, excellent vocal placement, both male and female, and nice treble reach with the crisp clean cymbal strikes. But as I listened more over the course of the next hour with a more critical ear towards tracks I really know well, I found the bass lines fat and a little bloated, lacking in definition - as in the reverb of bass string plucks - and also finding them a little recessed. Then I remember hearing about the synergy with warmer sources vs more neutral ones. I had been playing on a warmer DAP so I moved the same tracks over to my desktop DAC with ESS Chips and is a "brighter" source and much of that "bloat" disappeared but it still wasn't of the definition I'd expect for a thousand bucks - But I am a great believer in burn in so I just decided to play and enjoy for the next several hours as I worked away and they have opened up significantly with continued play time. I've gone back to the same tracks on both the Shanling DAP and the Topping DAC and everything has tightened right up on both sources.

    I've been listening to everything from Jazz, Blues, Fusion, Classical and Prog Rock today and everything sounds great on the Xelento 2nd Gen. Cellos, violins, guitars are beautifully placed and textured. Now to the treble. If you've been listening to or reading the reviews you'll note that the reviewers talk about the rolled off treble. I too noticed it slightly while at the same time making a mental note that cymbal strikes, maracas and other percussion instruments sound crystal clear and crisp. Here too as the small few hours mounted, they came forward and a little more prominent. The same thing was said about the UM Mext - They have rolled off treble - well after hours of listening critically to both the MEXT and now these Xelentos I would say that the treble is rolled off when compared to really well tuned ESTs and perhaps dedicated BA tweeters but everything in the treble region is here. No, the treble is not as forward as some planars, ESTs, magnetostatic or BA units but everything is here and I'm finding the Xelento to be a very enjoyable listen. I just finished doing a mini shootout between the Xelento and the MEXT because both are said to be "rolled off". Well I love the MEXT and dont find its treble rolled off but the Xelento treble has even a little more sparkle than the MEXT.

    Conclusion: These are a GREAT set of all rounders that will give me years of pleasure. I'm going to let them run for about 100 hours and expect them to develop and blossom even more. But I already know that because of the size and the sound these are definitely going to be my travel companions. Because of the way they tuck into the ear, there is no pressure against a pillow or plane, train or auto seatback and these little beauties put out a really big sound. A+ Beyerdynamic and thank you again Bloom Audio for an exceptional buying experience! I'll update some more as the hours mount.
