Sound is conveyed to people's ears as waves that occur when vibrations from a sounding body cause the air to vibrate. In a normal listening environment, sound waves released from speakers fill the listening space, and the waves that reach people's ears are reflected or absorbed by objects in the room such as desks, chairs, sofas, the floor, ceiling, or carpet. This is how we, through audio products, enjoy music recorded in a concert hall, live house, or studio. If you wish to enjoy an ambiance as though you were sitting in a concert hall or live house, you would have to raise the volume on the amp to some extent and drive the speakers. However, if your free time to enjoy music occurs late at night, you may not be able to raise the volume. At times like these, you need headphones that let you freely enjoy the music and yet still give you the quality of sound you require. To develop such headphones, we at Denon embarked on a new path where we focused on the acoustic space inside the headphones rather than the listening room.
Wearing headphones is like placing your ears right beside the speakers. The sounding body vibrates the air, but instead of being influenced by surrounding objects, the sound waves go directly into your ears. At first glance, you might imagine hearing a beautifully realistic sound, but there are a few issues that must be addressed first:
The driver unit needs to reproduce both delicate details and powerful sound, The materials used for the housing need to have superior acoustic properties, The headband and frame need to feel natural while being worn, and The cable needs to preserve the purity of electric signals during transmission.
Denon engineers have cleared these challenges step by step through repeated listening tests and adjustments. Musical instruments produce a wide variety of delicate nuances in sound that are most enjoyable to listen to--and now you can produce your own space where you can enjoy them to your heart's content.
