40-mm HD drivers

Enjoy clear, lively sound across all frequencies from 1.57" HD drivers.

Wide frequency range

Hear deep lows and euphoric highs with a full-range response from 3 Hz to 100 kHz.

Tuned for clearer sound

Our newly developed 1.57" lightweight HD driver with an aluminum-coated liquid crystal polymer (LCP) diaphragm delivers clear, lively sound, especially on mid to high tones—perfect for vocal-focused styles—and a smooth, precise response across the entire frequency range.

Pitch-perfect ultra-highs

Specially-designed Fibonacci-patterned grills protect the drivers while minimizing sound damping of high-resolution frequencies, so you can revel in every detail of the ultra-high notes.

Truly authentic sound

A supplied ?0.17" balanced connection cable retains all the clarity of studio sound so you can savor every detail of High-Resolution Audio.

Balanced audio

A balanced cable fully separates left and right channels by including an additional ground connection to reduce cross-talk and increase audio efficiency, for superior sound quality.

Silver-coated oxygen-free copper

Four silver-coated oxygen-free copper (OFC) cables minimize resistance and signal-transmission loss. The result is less sound degradation, finer detail and smoother treble.

Listen in style and comfort

With an ultra-lightweight frame and pressure-relieving earpads, you can listen comfortably in style for long periods of time.

Pressure-relieving earpads

Listen comfortably for hours thanks to soft cushioned synthetic leather earpads. The closed-back design minimizes any sound loss.


A new lightweight frame relieves pressure for longer listening in comfort, while premium build materials ensure long-lasting durability.
