Thanks to a large diaphragm diameter of 70 mm, these headphones reproduce natural sounds nearly identical to live music. The Fibonacci-patterned grille faithfully reproduces the qualities of high-resolution audio, delivering smooth ultra-high frequency with uninhibited waves of sound. Aluminum alloyed hangers for the cables give them a sense of uniformity in a thin, agile yet sturdy design, while supporting the housing of the diaphragm. Three-dimensionally sewn ergonomic earpads allow a more stable fit, along with an inward axis structure that turns the rotation axis of the housing inward.
