Avantone Pro Planar Red Reference-Grade Open-Back Headphones with Planar Drivers
Reference-grade Open-Back Headphones with Planar Drivers
Audiophile sound meets portability.
Planar is the culmination of Avantone's experience in creating reference-grade monitoring products, and the demands of modern, professional end-users. Featuring planar drivers for extreme detail, and supreme comfort for long sessions, Avantone’s Planars are a perfect solution for mix engineers, musicians, podcasters, live-streamers, and hi-fi enthusiasts.
Featuring planar magnetic driver technology.
Planar drivers offer an incredible set of advantages over traditional moving coil drivers. Amazing accuracy, high-end detail, clarity, natural bass and response time.
Traditional moving coil drivers use a magnetic field to push/pull the driver in one direction and rely on the surround’s elasticity to return the driver to the neutral position. Planar drivers utilize a technology that mixes principles between dynamic and electrostatic drivers — they are constructed by a precise array of magnets that are evenly spaced across both sides of a thin, electrically-active diaphram.
Due to the nature of this magnetic field’s precision, force applied to the membrane is distributed in a symetric fashion which produces a signal with very little harmonic distortion, and incredibly fast response times. And because planars use front and rear magnets to apply equal forces in both directions, there is far less weight applied to the driver material, which results in a much more natural sound with less distortion — allowing for hours of fatigue-less listening.
Avantone’s Planar headphones also employ an open-back design, with a perfectly tuned chamber that results in a very flat-frequency environment, without the typical pressure build-up, acoustic resonance, and frequency curve of closed back headphones. The result is an audiophile listening experience that can even be enjoyed portably!
Headphones that meet the modern day demands.
Planar might be a bit larger than typical headphones, but that doesn’t change the need for comfort! Planar is perfectly weighted for long-listening sessions, and provides additional comfort with their soft and spacious ear pads. Sessions that last for hours will only feel like minutes when wearing them!
Avantone Planars also include a high-grade, removable 3.5mm cable that can be plugged into either side! Maybe you’re working with a large instrument, or a specific rig that makes the typical “left side cable output” feel awkward; just plug into the right side! Planar also ships in an eco-friendly shoulder bag with room for your accessories — and even a pouch for it’s included cable.
