INTRODUCING THE D8000 PRO EDITION
Leaving the delicate sound quality intact, we have tuned D8000 using the Air Film Damping System (AFDS) exclusively for professional use upon the request of recording engineers who wish to listen at louder sound volumes than ordinary consumers. The human auditory characteristic by which low frequency range becomes easier to hear as sound volume increases has also been taken into consideration. As a result, in comparison to the D8000 which is suitable particularly for classical music and other selections featuring a wide dynamic range, the D8000 Pro Edition provides sound quality perceived to be of higher clarity when listening to rock, pops and other selections that feature a narrow dynamic range.
A combination of the sensitive high ranges of planar magnetic models and the volume and open feel bass tones of dynamic models.
With conventional planar magnetic models, amplitude is an increasing low range, and since the diaphragm comes into contact with magnets, it was necessary to raise the frequency of bass tones to a level that the driver unit can reproduce. To make up for the lack of bass tones, the inside of the earpads have been tightly sealed, and the front section of the diaphragm has been made a closed space.
This is the same principle as earphones with sealed earpieces being able to reproduce bass frequncies despite their small size. By sealing the inner earpads, it is possible to produce bass tones across low frequency bands; these become the bass tones produced within a sealed space the same as earphones.
With D8000, the problem with the diaphragm coming into contact with magnets has been solved through AFDS (Air Film Damping System), and it has become possible to reduce the frequency of the bass tones that the driver unit can reproduce. Combined with breatheable earpads, bass tone reproduction with a volume and open sound only achievable with superior dynamic models is possible.
NEWLY-DEVELOPED AFDS: AIR FILM DAMPING SYSTEM
With conventional planar magnetic models, amplitude was an increasing low range, and the diaphragm came into contact with magnets. To solve this problem, we took measurements by conducting diaphragm simulations using the finite element method and laser Doppler devices numerous times, and estabished new diaphragm braking technology known as AFDS - Air Film Damping System.
In doing so, the shortcoming of planar magnetic models - the low reproducibility of bass tones - was solved. This technology could be considered a reinvention of planar magnetic models.
With D8000 Pro Edition, the problem with the diaphragm coming into contact with magnets has been solved through AFDS (Air Film Damping System), and it has become possible to reduce the frequency of the bass tones that the driver unit can reproduce. Combined with breatheable earpads, bass tone reproduction with a volume and open sound only achievable with superior dynamic models is possible.
