Final Audio D8000 Pro Edition Semi-Open Back Planar Magnetic HeadphonesSale!
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.
Introducing the D8000 Pro Edition high end headphones bestseller
A combination of the sensitive high ranges of planar magnetic models and the volume and open feel bass tones of dynamic models.
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.
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. With the D8000 Pro Edition, problems originating from the adhesive have been fundamentally resolved, and the reproduction of a delicate sound in high frequency range has been achieved.
With a combination of the planar magnetic model’s subtle high frequecies and the dynamic model’s volume and open bass tones, you discover new things about music you’re used to listening to when you use D8000; they have you wanting to listen to your favorite music over and over again. With this product, you realize that high sound quality provides the impetus for experiencing the deeper aspects of music.
Newly-developed AFDS: Air Film Damping System
With conventional planar magnetic models, amplitude was an increasing low range, and the diaphragm came into contact with magnets. To solve this problem, we took measurements by conducting diaphragm simulations using the finite element method and laser Doppler devices numerous times, and estabished new diaphragm braking technology known as AFDS – Air Film Damping System.
In doing so, the shortcoming of planar magnetic models – the low reproducibility of bass tones – was solved. This technology could be considered a reinvention of planar magnetic models.
With D8000 Pro Edition, 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.
