STEALTH is Dan Clark Audio’s flagship headphone and it sound as big and bold as its matte-black with red accent design is striking. STEALTH is a closed headphone and delivers great isolation, but due to our proprietary Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System, AMTS, STEALTH delivers a huge, wide-open soundstage you have to hear to believe. Stealth won't just blow you away with its sound and design, either. A self-adjusting fitment and an emphasis on ergonomics make STEALTH so comfortable you can vanish into the music.
All headphones are subject to high-frequency standing waves which can make treble sound harsh, fatiguing, or synthetic.
AMTS is a patent pending inline device placed between the transducer and ear. It integrates waveguides, diffusion control, quarter-wave, and Helmholtz resonators into one compact structure.
Diffusion reduces some standing wave formation while resonators act as both precision and broad filters to smooth and shape the frequency response, smoothing the sound from the midrange through the highest frequencies.
AMTS renders high frequencies with a refreshingly smooth, accurate, and detailed delivery across all genres. OK, bad recordings are still bad, we’re not magicians!
Stealth's all-new 4th generation planar-magnetic driver delivers the smoothest, richest, and most detailed experience we could create. Its 20% larger than the E2 driver and uses our patented v-Planar technology to reduce THD and improve low frequency extension.
But we didn’t stop there! Diaphragm are made on an all-new system for a more uniform and consistent tension, lower distortion, and better matching.
And then there’s the soundstage; Stealth is all enveloping and can compete with even the finest open headphones in depth, width, and imaging.
It’s that effortless sense of space and instrument placement that lets Stealth “disappear” so you can simply relax into your musical experience. Everything, the headphones, the equipment, and yes, your daily stresses, just fall away.
If a headphone is not comfortable enough to wear for extended listening the design is flawed.
Stealth's ergonomic and stylish ear cups is a natural extension of Aeon 2 ergonomics with a more comfy fit and softer ear pads. Stealth weighs in at just 415g making it one of the lightest super-premium headphones on the market.
Throw in Stealth's new vegan suede and "leather" ear pads, self-adjusting suspension, and Stealth is so comfy you can just ignore it and "vanish into your music.”
Finally, for storage or travel we incorporated our elegant folding gimbal into Stealth, folding it into a compact case that’s small and easy to stow.
