The Studio Legend - beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO
In 1937 the first ever dynamic headphone, the DT48, was created by Eugen Beyer, the founder of what would later become the world-famous headphone and microphone manufacturer beyerdynamic. Not only did the DT48 pave the way for the modern-day headphone, but it also stood the test of time and was actually still in production 75 years later until it was discontinued in 2012.
