Audio46's Opinion

The Cobalt offers a multidimensional and all-encompassing soundstage with remarkable height and distinct instrument positioning. The bass is detailed and reserved, suitable for those who prefer a lighter and natural feel, while the mids are precise and delicate, providing super-clean vocals and snappy percussion. The highs shine with sparkle and great articulation, revealing subtleties in timbre and breath without any uncomfortable peaks or sibilance. And overall, the Cobalt delivers a delightful and precise listening experience, particularly suited for acoustic genres like classical and folk. We also recommend it for those who want a lean and accurate sound signature that doesn’t sound clinical or boring.

↓ Details provided by Dekoni Audio

Dekoni’s latest project has brought forth the Cobalt – a high end dynamic driver closed-back made in partnership with Hifiman. Made with their latest driver technology and masterfully tuned by our own engineer, the Cobalt is the culmination of everything that makes listening great.

The Cobalt driver makes use of a carbon-coated diaphragm, engineering in such a way that the carbon coating can be placed anywhere on the driver. This allows for an incredible level of fine-tuning of the driver, and gave us the perfect starting point to build the rest of the headphone around.

During our testing, we experimented with placing different materials behind the driver in the earcup – the results showed the headphone responding strongly to any changes, and trended towards a decrease in soundstage in exchange for a deeper bass response.

We also made use of the thick padded headband offered to us by Hifiman – ensuring an even amount of pressure across your head.

Last to be created was our specialty – the earpads. We experimented with multiple styles using our Elite Series materials and high density memory foam, and had each style tested by our team. In the end we decided on the Fenestrated Sheepskin pads – the combination of comfort, breathability and resulting sound was the winner for the team.

Of course, we didn’t stop there – our engineer also created a unique set of Elite Velour pads, offering further enhanced comfort and an alternate tuning more to his preference. These Elite Velour pads will be included with the first 1000 units of the Cobalt – giving you the full Dekoni experience.
