Audeze CRBN Electrostatic Headphones
A revolutionary carbon nanotube technology driver offers ultra-low distortion and weight.
Audeze's CRBN driver uses a revolutionary ultra-thin diaphragm with carbon nanotubes suspended inside the material. Unlike other electrostatic diaphragms, there is no coating, so the charge is distributed throughout the film. This results in a uniform driving force that reduces distortion and improves clarity, resolution, and transparency.
CRBN offers supreme comfort with its lightweight construction. At 470 grams, the minimalist design features materials such as magnesium and carbon fiber, which shaves off every gram while maintaining strength. The earpads are extra plush and slightly oversized, for a great seal and pillow-soft, cranium-cradling comfort. Featuring hand-stitched premium leather, every detail has been fine-tuned, all the way down to the feel of the machined aluminum 5-pin connector.
580 Volt Compatibility
CRBN is compatible with “Stax Pro Bias” 580 V amplifiers such those from Woo Audio, Linear Tube Audio, Mjolnir Audio, Headamp, Stax (of course), and others. The cable is terminated with the industry-standard 5-pin barrel connector for maximum compatibility.
