Thanks to the ultra-thin diaphragm made of high-molecular polyester film, high-quality playback systems allow for a much better frequency response than in the case of ordinary headphones. Excellent damping and precise sound reproduction throughout the listening area make this device a real pleasure to use. ”
Old pads were replaced with properly selected substitutes made of eco-leather, which were moisturized and protected with a lotion based on lanolin, aloe, beeswax and Carnauba wax.
Specially designed and hand-made solid headphone stands. The material is high-quality solid beech wood covered with Chinese oil produced from natural oils, which gives the stands a beautiful look and makes them very pleasant to the touch.
