The key design difference between the XELENTO remote and XELENTO wireless is that the former only supports wired playback and comes with a 3.5mm cable and a 4.4mm cable. On the other hand, the XELENTO wireless supports wireless playback and connects via Bluetooth. A neckband goes inside the buds and gives them a neckband design.

The cables also have gold highlights and a 3-button universal remote for controls. While the cables look thin, they are insulted nicely and feel very premium.

The advantage of products from premium brands is that you get attention to detail everywhere. To ensure a most comfortable fit for their users, the German brand provides you with 10 pairs of ear tips. These are different sizes and different materials. You get 7 sets of silicone ear tips and 3 sets of Comply Memory Foam ear tips. The memory foam ear tips help with better noise isolation and a more comfortable fit overall.

In terms of innovation and advanced technology, the beyerdynamic XELENTO remote headphones have a Tesla coil in them. Because of that, the headphones have some significant improvements. The Tesla coil allows them to lower audio distortion, more accurate frequency response, etc.

Audio Performance

Coming to the important part, which is the audio performance and sound quality in general, the XELENTO headphones have all the powerful resources to deliver stunning audio to the users. Both headphones have support for Hi-Res audio and also have Hi-Res Audio and Hi-Res Audio Wireless certifications.

For the wireless version, users can make a lot of customizations with the companion app and get even better sound. They come with the TESLA.11 eleven-millimeter, dynamic, one-way driver. There is also a new acoustic filter that helps to get more clarity and detail when you go on high-frequency.

Expanding more on the XELENTO wireless, it comes with Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. The battery life on the headphone will be around 14 hours which is more than suitable for a neckband wireless headphone. Then the wireless version also supports AAC, SBC, aptX HD, aptX adaptive, and LHDC codecs. So you are going to get superior audio performance.

The good thing is that both headphones come with a 3.5mm cable, so you can even use the wireless variant in wired mode. Both variants are compatible with all major platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac. So you are not going to have any connectivity issues.
