Planar new Reference-Grade Headphones

Avantone Pro is proud to announce the availability of Planar (red Model here) — absolutely following up its acclaimed MP-1 Mixphones multi-mode headphones. With unique Vari-Voice technology to allow users to move between a normal neutrally-voiced stereo field, monaural, and a specially contoured ‘mix’ mode. This time taking open-back reference-grade headphones with planar drivers design route to bring extreme detail and supreme comfort to long sessions as an ideal solution for mix engineers, musicians, podcasters, live-streamers, and hi-fi enthusiasts alike.

Planar is the culmination of Avantone Pro’s experience in creating reference-grade monitoring products to meet the demands of modern-day professional end-users by putting planar drivers in the driving seat for extreme detail, and supreme comfort for long sessions — surely an ideal solution for mix engineers, musicians, podcasters, live-streamers, and hi-fi enthusiasts alike — as audiophile sound meets portability.

Planar Features

  • High definition planar driver technology outperforms typical dynamic headphone designs, providing an uncompromised, natural sound
  • Low distortion, fast response, and flat frequency response for more precision and accuracy when monitoring and mixing
  • Over the ear, open back headphones with a lightweight design for greater comfort when wearing for longer periods of time
  • Low impedance and amplifier requirements for better use with recording interfaces, hi-fi systems, or mobile devices.
  • Extremely wide frequency response from 30Hz to 30KHz.
  • High-grade, removable 3.5mm cable that can be plugged into either side
  • Includes a lightweight eco-friendly carrying bag.

Amazing accuracy, high-end detail, clarity, natural bass, and response time are just some of the advantages that planar drivers offer over traditional moving coil drivers. After all, traditional moving coil drivers use a magnetic field to push/pull the driver in one direction and really 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 since they are constructed from a precise array of magnets that are evenly spaced across both sides of a thin, electrically-active diaphragm. Due to the nature of this magnetic field’s precision, force applied to the membrane is distributed in a symmetric fashion that produces a signal with very little harmonic distortion and incredibly fast response times. There is also far less weight applied to the driver material since planar drivers use front- and rear-mounted magnets — Neodymium N50SH, in the case of Avantone Pro’s Planar — to apply equal forces in both directions, resulting in a much more natural sound with less distortion, and allowing for hours of fatigue-less listening.

Avantone Pro’s Planar headphones also apply an open-back design with a perfectly-tuned chamber that results in a very flat-frequency environment — all without the typical pressure build-up, acoustic resonance, and frequency curve of closed-back headphones. Happily, the result is an audiophile listening experience that can even be enjoyed portably!

Planar may well be a little larger than typical headphones, but that need not detract from the need for comfort! Comfortably positioned, Planar is perfectly weighted for long-listening sessions, providing additional comfort with soft and spacious ear pads, so sessions that last for hours will only feel like minutes when wearing them! Technical specs make for equally comforting reading, with an extremely wide frequency response spanning 30Hz to 30kHz while low (32 Ω) impedance and amplifier requirements make for better use with audio interfaces, hi-fi systems, or mobile devices.

Dutifully, Avantone Pro’s Planar package comes complete with a high-grade 3.5mm cable that can be plugged into either side of the headphones, so the affordable high-quality studio monitors, reference headphones, microphones, and accessories producer has got that awkward left-side-cable-output-only situation comfortably covered! Coming full circle, Planar also ships in an eco-friendly shoulder bag with room for accessories — and a pouch for its included cable, even!
