Beat Response Control for tight bass

Beat Response Control technology delivers a tight, deep bass response, making it perfect for low-end focused music styles. An air vent maximizes airflow within the low frequency range, optimizing the efficiency of the diaphragm to enable more accurate reproduction of bass rhythms.

Swivel design makes travel easy

Take these headphones anywhere you go. The swiveling earcup design allows easy storage when you’re not using them, and enhances portability when you’re traveling. The earcups swivel flat, so you can pack them into a suitcase or bag without worrying about taking up too much valuable space.

Aluminum fascia for punchy bass 

These headphones are made for the kind of bass that gets you moving. The light but rigid aluminum fascia on top of the housing suppresses unwanted vibration to preserve deep, punchy, low notes.

Cushioned earpads for total comfort

Listen in total comfort. These headphones have a self-adjusting headband and soft cushioned earcups that cover the whole ear. Enjoy the long-lasting comfort you need for listening to your favorite albums back-to-back.

Neodymium dynamic drivers deliver precise sound

Lightweight 1.18 in neodymium dynamic driver units enable the headphones to deliver a punchy, rhythmic response to even the most demanding track. Combined with a highly sensitive diaphragm, you’ll be able to turn the headphones up louder and still enjoy clear, precise audio across the spectrum.

Enfolding closed-back design seals in sound

The closed-back, enfolding design wraps around the ear, sealing in music and keeping out distractions. Acoustics are reflected back toward your ears, so you hear even the subtlest sounds. You also feel every beat, as the closed-back design maximizes the bass signatures in your music.

High sensitivity for a loud, clear sound

With enhanced sensitivity of 102 dB/mW, these headphones are highly efficient in converting electricity into acoustic signals. This means you’ll hear a louder sound across the entire audio spectrum (compared to less sensitive headphones) when listening to music through the same source and at the same volume level.
