Everyone deserves to hear their music with the same refinement and detail as audio professionals and enthusiasts.
Our mission is simple: deliver audiophile standards with simple, tasteful product design — and price attainably so everyone can hear what they have been missing.
Drivers produce sound. Better drivers produce more expansive, more detailed, more inspiring sound. This seemed like an obvious place to splurge — and we did.
Balanced Armature (BA) drivers are tiny metal transducers that reproduce middle and high frequencies with stunning clarity and detail.
Due to their small size and sonic accuracy, they are used primarily in professional on-stage earbuds and hearing aids.
Most headphones have artificially boosted mid-bass which creates a bloated, muddy sound that drowns out mids and highs (think vocals, guitars, synths).
When listeners complain of "too much bass", this is usually the problem. It's actually too much of the wrong TYPE of bass.
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.
Professional reviewers and customers alike have praised the unique balance of excitement and accuracy in the Status Audio sound signature.
The feedback is consistent: Status Audio headphones sonically out-perform products costing far more.
