Your music comes alive.

The Composer is a premium reference headphone designed for connoisseurs and professionals to hear their music in its finest form.

These headphones deliver spacious yet precise high frequencies and faithful and swift bass impulses at remarkably low THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) levels, ensuring an incredibly revealing listening journey that sets new standards in high-end listening.

The adjustable headband employs a mesh material to release heat and avoid perspiration, and the design weighs in at under 400 grams. Tiltable earcups enable four positions to help achieve a flawless fit. The cables attach directly to the headband to protect the ears from undue strain.

Made in Austria
