EXCELLEnT GERMAn AUDiO EnGinEERinG SinCE 1924
The development of dynamic headphones and microphones are milestones in beyerdynamic’s
history. Founded in Berlin in 1924, today the company, which is headquartered in Heilbronn,
is one of the leading suppliers in the market for headphones, microphones, headsets and
conference systems. Beyerdynamic develops and produces innovative solutions in Germany for
an ever-growing clientele with a high quality requirement.

The HS 600 DAnR with Digital Adaptive noise Reduction provides a perfect symbiosis of silence,
comfort and design. This premium headset, which is handcrafted in Heilbronn, Germany,
sets standards with microprocessor controlled noise attenuation. Enjoy your flights safely
and without any stress. The comfortable flying, however, does not only include silence. This
is the reason why a lot of attention was paid to the light weight and headband pressure
when developing the HS 600 DAnR. Precious materials such as genuine leather headband
pads and softskin ear seals with viscoelastic filling are standard.
Treat yourself to music from your MP3 player or use the HS 600 DAnR as a mobile phone adapter.
The soft touch-coated audio box of the HS 600 DAnR provides a mini jack socket (3.5 mm) as
an audio interface. As soon as an intercom signal is received, the external music or telephone
signal is gently reduced. By the way, this mute function can be turned off, for example, pas-
The power supply of the HS 600 DAnR is flexible. it can be powered by two mignon batteries or
rechargeable batteries or by an on-board power supply system. For this you can use the supplied
cable, which is connected to the audio box. The appropriate 3-pin XLR socket for your aircraft is also
supplied (version with double jack plugs). in addition to all properties, beyerdynamic’s
experience of more than 85 years can be felt in each headset. The HS 600 DAnR shows
the way into the future with digital noise attenuation.

Make your headset stand out: On the Design page you can
select the look and impression of your headset. instead of
the standard carbon design you can select ear cups in high
gloss black or in a precious burl wood design for the HS 600
DAnR. We will be happy to anodise the metal parts in discreet
colors such as “champagne” or glossy such as “pink”. For the
HS 400 Signum there are gel-filled or leather ear pads in
different colors available. Let your creativity run free!

MAKE iT UniQUE!
At www.beyerdynamic.com/manufaktur you can build your own HS 600 DAnR and HS 400 Signum
according to your desires and requirements. Colors, materials and technical features can be combined in numerous variants.
Personal laser engraving is also available. After placing your order in the beyerdynamic shop, your headset will be manufactured
by hand – a real unique item “Made in Germany”.
Different aircrafts require various headset connectors. On
the Technology page of the Aviation MAnUFAKTUR you can
simply select the requested version. For the HS 600 DAnR, for
example, the practical 6-pin Redel connector or a helicopter
connector is available. You can also decide if your HS 400
Signum should include an audio box or not.
The personalisation makes your headset absolutely unique. A
two-lined text can be laser engraved into the holding clip of
the headband. By the way the MAnUFAKTUR headsets are a

WHAT iS ACTiVE nOiSE REDUCTiOn?
noise affects the ability to concentrate and the consciousness of situations
which are important for your safety when flying! Permanent noise can even
damage your hearing. A close fitting headset, which absorbs sound waves,
is referred to as passive. Passive hearing protection attenuates the noise
especially in the mid and high frequency range.
The function of the active noise reduction is based on the principle of the
phase inverse sound.
in standard analogue AnR headsets, small microphones in the ear cups
receive the noise and an analogue filter circuit (nC filter) produces an
audio signal with inverse wave shape - phase inverse. The original noise is
superimposed by the phase inverse audio signal and reduced: The eardrum
receives less noise.
The active noise reduction is especially effective in the deep frequency range
(25 to 500 Hz).
With higher frequencies it is less effective. This is the reason why a headset
often provides a combination of active and passive hearing protection.
Active noise reduction on an analogue basis has existed for more than 20
years. A headset with analogue active noise reduction starts working after
switching it on. The properties of the analogue filter always remain the
same independent on the acoustic surrounding. Therefore, an analogue
active headset cannot adapt to modified acoustic situations in the cockpit.
This applies the advantages of the digital signal processing. The nC filter has
been programmed as a software algorithm and processes digitalised audio
signals on a microprocessor. in addition to a more precise result, the main
advantage is, that it intelligently reacts to various acoustic surroundings.
This includes an automatic activation when the engine is started and an
adaptation to peaks, which are typical for engine noise. An analogue nC
filter cannot differ between very loud and quiet frequencies.
Whether telephone, TV or control technology, advanced digital technology
replaces obsolete analogue systems in all industries! With DAnR Digital
Adaptive noise Reduction in beyerdynamic Aviation headsets, pilots can
now also enjoy precise, noiseless and comfortable silence while flying. They
arrive safely and relaxed at their destination.
