In the 1920s in Berlin Eugen Beyer recognised that the cinema presented a new opportunity in communication media. The first products he produced were loudspeakers for film palaces in 1924. At the end of the 1930s Beyer developed the first dynamic headphone. World War II temporarily froze production, however, in 1948, beyerdynamic sought new beginnings in Heilbronn. The “Stielhrer” DT 49 became a cult item of “Plattenbars (Record-Bars) in the 50. The “transistophone”, the company’s first wireless microphone, went into production in 1962. The 60 brought accolade: The Beatles went on tour with the E-1000 microphone. Elton John, Abba, and Stevie Wonder all sing into sound transformers from beyerdynamic.
