Planar Magnetic Technology

Most headphones use inexpensive, mass-produced dynamic cone drivers in standard sizes from just a few OEM/ODM producers and build their headphones around them. But dynamic cone drivers have serious inherent design limitations that can cause slow transient response and severe break up modes with uneven frequency response. The dynamic driver assembly has lots of glue joints that can degrade over time and cause the sound to get progressively worse.

Planar technology diaphragms thinner than a human hair

Rocket Science

Our oversize diaphragm materials are ultra-thin and made in-house with proprietary processes and equipment. The original diaphragm material was developed for NASA space applications. Civilian technology transfer allowed Audeze to acquire and further refine it along with a range of new techniques to handle the new film.

In house, high-quality custom-cast and treated magnets

The most powerful driving force available

Our planar magnetic headphones use proprietary, custom-cast magnets placed on one or both sides of the diaphragm to create a powerful magnetic field. Our latest implementation, the Double-Fluxor™ Array, achieves the most powerful magnetic flux ever created to control the diaphragm with near-zero distortion.

How to measure headphones

An art as much as a science

Headphones can’t be accurately measured by just placing a microphone between the headphone drivers. That’s why we use artificial heads with different mic placements to measure our high-quality, high-end headphones.
