Beyerdynamic likes to name their next-generation products as “X Generation” instead of giving a different model or a shorter suffix like “MK2”. One of the drawbacks is a long product keyword that is just not search friendly. Anyway, I digress. The second generation Xelento Remote is launched in a more organised manner. Consumers might recall the original Xelento Remote took several months to fully roll-out, notwithstanding some production issues. It shares the same design as the Astell&Kern T8iE, even though the sound tuning is different.
The Beyerdynamic Xelento Remote 2nd Generation is a quality piece of earphones beautifully crafted to exude elegance to the wearer and deliver smooth faithful audio to the listener. It’s a pair of headphones that you can enjoy at louder volumes to immerse in the musical details without feeling fatigue from the treble tuning. After 5 years of last listened to the first Xelento, I remain delighted to listen to the new iteration of the Xelento. The wired version Xelento Remote retails in Singapore at S$1499, while the wireless version Xelento Wireless retails at S$1699.
