Final Audio D8000 Planar Magnetic Headphones

$3,799.00

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.

Description

The Final Audio D series

A new series of products that employs original technology that could be considered a reinvention of planar magnetic models – AFDS (Air Film Damping System). With AFDS (Air Film Damping System), the planar magnetic model was reinvented.
With the development of the new AFDS (Air Film Damping System), we have achieved sound quality that has both the sensitive high ranges of planar magnetic models and the volume and open feel bass tones of dynamic models. This is a product that will have you making new discoveries from music you’re used to listening to, and will have you wanting to listen to your favorite music over and over, reaffirming the pleasure that audio products bring. A combination of the sensitive high ranges of planar magnetic models and the volume and open feel bass tones of dynamic models.
“Volume and open feel bass tones”
With conventional planar magnetic models, amplitude is an increasing low range, and since the diaphragm comes into contact with magnets, it was necessary to raise the frequency of bass tones to a level that the driver unit can reproduce. To make up for the lack of bass tones, the inside of the earpads have been tightly sealed, and the front section of the diaphragm has been made a closed space. This is the same principle as earphones with sealed earpieces being able to reproduce bass frequncies despite their small size. By sealing the inner earpads, it is possible to produce bass tones across low frequency bands; these become the bass tones produced within a sealed space the same as earphones.

With D8000, the problem with the diaphragm coming into contact with magnets has been solved through AFDS (Air Film Damping System), and it has become possible to reduce the frequency of the bass tones that the driver unit can reproduce. Combined with breatheable earpads, bass tone reproduction with a volume
and open sound only achievable with superior dynamic models is possible.

“Subtle high frequencies”
In reproducing subtle high frequencies, the lightweight nature of the diaphragm comes before anything else. Compared to other dynamic models with the same diameter, D8000’s diaphragm is 1/3 lighter. A super thin aluminum coil has been etched on the extremely lightweight film diaphragm, and as such, the adhesive essential for use between the coil and the diaphragm of dynamic models – which has a very negative effect on sound quality – is not necessary. This is an important part, packed with know-how. With D8000, this problem is solved theoretically, and reproduction of subtle high frequencies has been achieved.
