Beyerdynamic (stylized "beyerdynamic") GmbH & Co. KG based in Heilbronn, is a German audio equipment manufacturer, which produces microphones,headphones, wireless audioo systems and conference systems. Beyerdynamic has been family owned since its founding in 1924. Beyerdynamic is one of the oldest audio companies, along with Shure and RG Jones Sound Engineering. Most of their products are made in Germany.

In the 1920s in Berlin Eugen Beyer believed that the cinema presented a new opportunity in communication media. The first products he produced were loudspeakers for film palaces in 1924 (right). At the end of the 1930s Beyer developed the first pair of dynamic headphones. World War II temporarily froze production, however, in 1948, beyerdynamic sought new beginnings in Heilbronn. The "Stielhörer" DT 49 became a popular item of "Plattenbars” (Record-Bars) in the 50’s. The "transistophone", the company's first wireless microphone, went into production in 1962. The Beatles 1966 German tour used the E-1000 microphone. Elton John, Abba, and Stevie Wonder all sung into sound transformers produced by beyerdynamic.  In 1985, Beyerdynamic acquired its then-North American distributor, Burns Audiotronics, which became its North American subsidiary. Today beyerdynamic, Inc. have their own office headquartered in Farmingdale, New York.

At the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul all media reporting sites were equipped with headsets from beyerdynamic. In 1999, the new Bundestag in Berlin was fitted with beyerdynamic's digital microphones. The reporters from the Football World Cup in Germany use the DT 297 headset.  Most recently, the TG1000 digital wireless system has been introduced.
