Breakthrough Electrostatic Technology

With the biggest technological advance of electrostatics in decades, Audeze has patented a new polymer film with carbon nanotubes, and eliminates the problems of older designs with laminations and vacuum deposition. Originally developed for a product we designed for hospital MRI machines, our new CRBN (pronounced “Carbon”) electrostatic headphones are a superior solution. And yes, our new patented tech can be used in full-range speakers.

  • Patent-pending carbon nanotube film
  • Works with all 580 Volt Pro Bias amplifiers
  • Accurate low frequency performance
  • Excellent dynamic range
  • Lightweight and very comfortable

Designed with Purpose

Audeze originally developed this new technology working with Prof. Mark S. Cohen Ph.D., UCLA School of Medicine and his team, for use in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Typical ferrous metals could not be used, so we had to develop a new material, and that led us to patent a special thin film with suspended carbon nanotubes. This solves the problems associated with lamination and deposition on the film.

Carbon Nanotube Technology

The CRBN driver includes a revolutionary ultra-thin diaphragm with carbon nanotubes suspended inside the material. Because the charge is distributed throughout the film, this results in a uniform driving force that reduces distortion and improves clarity, resolution and transparency.

Supreme Comfort

CRBN offers supreme comfort with its lightweight construction. At 300 grams, the minimalist design features materials such as magnesium and carbon fiber, which shaves off every gram while maintaining strength. The earpads are extra plush and slightly oversized, for a great seal and pillow-soft, cranium-cradling comfort.

Elegant Design

CRBN is the ultimate in luxurious design, from the smooth curves of its uniquely etched grill, to the depth of its finely polished acetate rings. Featuring hand-stitched premium leather, every detail has been fine-tuned, all the way down to the feel of the machined aluminum 5-pin connector.

580 Volt Compatibility

CRBN is compatible with “Stax Pro Bias” 580 Volt amplifiers such those from Woo Audio, Linear Tube Audio, Mjolnir Audio, Headamp, Stax (of course) and others. The cable is terminated with the industry standard 5-pin barrel connector for maximum compatibility.

Electrostatic amps for CRBN

STAX SRM-700S (or T) or almost any Stax amp including the portable SRM-D10

iFi Pro iESL, this is a convertor that works with regular power amps, but supplies the 580 volt bias needed for electrostatics

Woo Audio 3ES, GES, and WES, compatible with STAX Pro Bias
