Great sound isn't a mystery.
Drivers produce sound. Better drivers produce more expansive, more detailed, more inspiring sound. This seemed like an obvious place to splurge - and we did.
Most headphones have artificially boosted mid-bass which creates a bloated, muddy sound that drowns out mids and highs (think vocals, guitars, synths).
We focus on sub/low bass (20–100hz) — the deep vibrations you get when experiencing sound in a live setting. Natural, exhilarating bass.
The difference is in the curve:
US: Sub/low bass extension.
Big, clear, visceral sound that feels just right.
THEM: Excess mid-bass.
A bloated, unnatural sound that misrepresents recorded music.
When sound is reproduced properly, it doesn’t need to be played so loud to have emotional impact. We strive to create a listening experience that resonates at any volume.
