Custom Studio: Bass has power

Ironically one of the most favourable candidates from beyerdynamic is unspectacularly neutral: the Custom Studio. It reproduces the heavy bass intro from “Fade” emphatically as the synthetic heart beats of Kraftwerk’s “Elektrokardiogramm”. The snare and hi-hat of the Jazzkantine’s drums are clear, but not dominant. In comparison to the DT 880 PRO and DT 770 PRO from beyerdynamic, the Custom Studio, however, sounds a little cool and sterile.

Custom Studio: Good analytical capability due to a high detailed accuracy

Conclusion of the beyerdynamic Custom Studio test report:
The beyerdynamic Custom Studio is suitable for what its name suggests – the work in the studio on one hand, when monitoring one’s own singing while recording, and on the other hand when monitoring the mix down. A highlight of this model is the rare gift of a four-stage adjustable bass range. Stage 2 of 4 is the most linear, and consequently there is one stage with a restrained bass and two stages with a boosted bass. The accuracy is pleasingly high. This is to be expected in this price range and contributes to the music enjoyment and to the analysing capability when mixing and mastering. The good impulse fidelity ensures crispy beats from kick drums etc.  Furthermore, a stereo field is represented which is fairly wide for a closed headphone. The comfort when wearing is simply a pleasure (...). These facts are important for all: The cable is a) robust, b) flexible due to its coiled design, c) detachable and d) it can be connected to the ear cup with a standardised jack plug. That’s a full score for this implementation! The good workmanship is complemented by the possibility of applying side parts, ear pads or headband pads in several designs. They do not cost the earth and give an individual touch. Regarding the sonic depths and some areas of the panorama, the spatial sound sometimes appears slightly pressured. Personally, I find the highs somewhat too present. Of course, this contributes to the described love of detail, but deviates from the neutrality and leaves the upper mids a little bit shy.  All in all the tested headphone is an elaborate studio headphone -  no question about it. Therefore, it achieves four good points out of five possible.

"With Custom Studio, an attractive exterior with an individual look goes hand-in-hand with professional quality – studio meets lifestyle."

[...]

"The circumaural version of the surprisingly light Custom Studio (290 grams without the cable) not only ensures a perfect fit, but also effectively prevents annoying crosstalk when the sliders are closed, resulting in clean recording signals. In private use, the closed headphones protect users from unwanted ambient noise and prevent arguments about the volume with nearby people (for example in trains)."

[...]

"In the Custom Studio, proven beyerdynamic quality meets maximum flexibility in terms of sound and style. The best components, high-precision manufacturing by hand and the option of replacing virtually all headphone components even years after purchase make these headphones a secure investment. Whether for recording, mixing or mastering – the reliable, stylish beyerdynamic CUSTOM STUDIO is the perfect choice for demanding audio professionals."

We briefly would like to mention the Custom Studio’s comfort for wearing. After a quick and differentiated adjustment of the appropriate size, the headphone fits perfectly on the head and does not press on the top of the skull. Though it is not very gentle around the ears, in everyday use, however, it is less heavy than expected. Even when it is worn for a longer period of time, the headphone remains quite comfortable without causing pain from pressure. The velours pads seem to absorb a lot

[...]

We like the fact that the cable is detachable and therefore easily replaceable. Whoever would like to equip the Custom Studio with a microphone can do so and turn it into a headset. The connector securely locks in place and cannot slip out anymore.

[...]

The first setting “light bass” where the bass reflex vents are closed does not make sense for everyday use in our opinion. For studio applications this might be different. We, however, enjoy the second setting very well, it provides more volume and the very deep bass is very good perceivable.  Those, who like more bass, will still miss something here. Lovers of a dry and rather discrete bass will enjoy this. The second and third settings are very similar, but the third setting has more power. Those who prefer a somewhat rounder and full bass will select this variant. The fourth setting, “Vibrant Bass”, is more powerful, although not too much. For high-quality recordings it is even a little bit too strong, but we will use it for weaker recordings or music streams and files with a little bit rate.

[...]

We start with „She Moves“  from Alle Farben. The bustling electronic music reproduced by the Custom Studio is very lively and thrilling. With the second slider setting the bass is dry, precise and powerful. Those who prefer more volume and full body can select the third setting. We like that the Custom Studio makes a quite balanced impression.

[...]

The acoustic elements of the upper range are very clear, transparent and of high resolution. Even when the performance becomes more complex, individual details can be allocated and located excellently. The headphone also develops an excellent spaciousness. The voice is very central and pleasant with a lot of character. The guitar sounds and the individual percussion components are very good and harmoniously embedded in the background sound.

[...]

Joe Bonamassa spoils us with country-folk-blues sounds (...). The live recording in combination with the Custom Studio convinces with an excellent transparency and airiness. The mids and highs are enormously clear and cleanly structured, there is no detail lost from the different acoustic levels. The differences of the individual instruments are very accurate. The guitar is a little bit sharper, the violin soft and gentle. When the banjo joins in, the excellent setup of the stage becomes clear to even less experienced users. The arrangement of the stage, the precise representation of individual instruments, which you can locate perfectly, are a clear strength of the beyerdynamic headphone.

[...]

When we compare it to the Custom One Pro, we find out that the new Custom Studio has a more finer resolution despite the identical base in the high-frequency range. Likewise the Custom Sliders operate successfully. If we are not mistaken, the Custom One Pro still provides more power and bass, but only the bass freaks will miss this with the Custom Studio. The workmanship is identical and of a high standard.

[...]

Conclusion: The Custom Studio from beyerdynamic is a studio headphone and optimised for recording and monitoring, but due to its acoustic versatility it provides an excellent base in daily routine.  With the Custom Sliders the bass range can be excellently adapted to different situations such as at home or on the move, good or bad recordings. In the high frequency range it plays clearly with a high resolution and emphasises the upper range but not too strong. Its strengths are the differentiation of instruments and spaciousness. Despite the comparatively high headband pressure the Custom Studio does not become uncomfortable with longer listening sessions. The quality of the workmanship is of a typical high standard and beyerdynamic promises a long-lasting product support.

With four bass settings the beyerdynamic Custom Studio headphone covers a wide sound range. For this test we compared the Custom Studio with beyerdynamic’s classic headphones DT 770, DT 880 and DT 990. The quality and comfort of these four over-ear models is very good.

[...]

Compared to the DT 770, the Custom Studio highlights mids a little less. It does not achieve the resolution of the DT 880 or the airy highs of the DT 990, but with its warm sound it comes close to the latter. Due to its bass reflex vents it can be used variably in the studio and is therefore the most versatile all-rounder of this excellent headphone foursome/quartet.

Custom Studio: Makes fun when practicing

Regarding design and processing, the Custom Studio is convincing. It is very comfortable due to the soft velvet ear pads and movable yokes. The headband design of spring steel keeps the ear cups securely in place (…). The soft headband pad is also pleasant.
The design of the headphone is unusually flexible. The outer cover of the ear cups can be replaced by other coloured variants when loosening and removing the four Allen screws.

[...]

Due to the variable sound tuning the headphone is also a good choice for relaxed listening to music or practicing with a keyboard or digital piano.

[...]

Conclusion: Due to the variable bass response, the Custom Studio is suitable for monitoring purposes or relaxed listening to music as well as practicing. The good sound, enhanced equipment and solid quality is available at a very fair price (…).
