With AFDS (Air Film Damping System), the planar magnetic model was reinvented. Leaving the merits of the planar magnetic model – a lightweight vibration system and superior reproduction of high frequencies – as is, the employment of AFDS expands the reproduction frequency band with a bass bias, and makes the use of breatheable earpads possible. Compared to the conventional planar magnetic model, with which tightly sealed earpads had to be used to suplement bass frequencies, the natural, open sound achieved is of a quality worthy of being termed a reinvention.
In the Final Audio Sonorous III Closed-Back Over-Ear Headphones, the ear pads play an important part in sound quality. When there is a space between the ear pad and the ear, low frequency acoustic pressure changes greatly, and this greatly influences sound quality. So as to achieve a superior fit where it is hard to create a space, we’ve employed synthetic leather, which has an equal amount of flexibility both horizontally and vertically, and have chosen a sponge with just the right amount of flexibility. Establishing apertures on the inside and the outside of the ear pads makes for clear sound quality with sealed headphones.
Delivers a vast sound stage never before experienced until now.
With the synergistic effect of a hybrid design that merges balanced armature with a 50mm diameter dynamic driver unit coupled with BAM mechanism, we’ve achieved an extraordinarily vast sound stage. The music fixed inside our heads with headphones up until now vibrates in a vast space from side to side and with depth.
