This top-of-the-line pair of studio-monitor headphones boasts a specially developed 50 mm driver unit and magnesium housing, achieving both sound quality and wearability. The removable dedicated cable uses a 7n grade core wire to ensure sound quality. The contour adopts an oval shape to create a monolithic form without protrusions or crevices from the housing to the ear pads. The hanger is very rigid, and given personality by a champagne silver coating. The slider is made of aluminum shaped in a highly advanced flat extrusion and bending process, complementing the look of the hanger.
