World’s first Nano thickness Diaphragm
When it comes to detail retrieval, no factor is more important than the diaphragm. Required to oscillate up to 20,000 times a second, most diaphragms, which are made of plastic or cardboard, can’t overcome the hurdle of their own inertia to reproduce lifelike detail. The HE1000v2, on the other hand, features the first nanometer-thick diaphragm. This exceptional thinness allows it to reproduce unparalleled details and lifelike imaging that can’t be found on other headphones.
Advance Asymmetrical Magnetic Circuit
Most planar magnetic headphones place a bulky layer of magnets between the diaphragm and the listener’s ear, forcing sound waves to squeeze past a barrier that results in transmission interference. The HE1000v2 has solved this problem by utilizing smaller ear-facing magnets, which allow sound waves to pass around them without creating interference for a purer, less distorted sound.
Protection Meets Purity
The HE1000v2 features a “window shade” grill that both protects the driver with its sturdy metallic material and allows ample space for sound waves to escape, resulting in both durability and sonic purity.
