The internal aspect utilizes a mesh material as well as employing thick, strong sponge; sound quality is adjusted by creating an appropriate space between the ear pad and the wearer's ear.
SONOROUS Series and D8000 Series earpads. For the SONOROUS series, we have provided these as parts which, depending on the type, proactively change the sound. For the D8000 series, we provide two types for desired sensation of fit.
Ear pads play a very important role in sound quality. One of these relates to the problem of fitting. When there is a gap between the ear pad and the ear, large changes occur in terms of the acoustic pressure of low tones, and this has a considerable effect on sound quality. Because of this, the choice of materials for the ear pads and the inner sponge is important.
Another role relates to the influence of aging (the phenomenon whereby the sound produced by the headphones changes in a favorable direction as they are used). The ear pads themselves are a large component in terms of change over the years, and hence a big influence with respect to aging. The ear pads adapting to the shape of the ear is a good change, but if the shape changes too much, there may be deviations away from the type of sound that is favored. Based on such a viewpoint, on listening trials and on comfort with respect to the ears, we employed synthetic leather with the same amount of stretch both horizontally and vertically and which changes moderately over time.
For the SONOROUS series, listeners can enjoy proactively changing the sound based on the materials and construction of each type of earpad. By all means, please try to discover the differences with each type. The D series features an earpad made of special polyurethane fiber that offers superior breathability that comes standard with the D8000 and an earpad that offers superior durability that comes standard with the D8000 Pro Edition.
