D8000 Pro Limited Edition

Introducing the Limited Model of the highly acclaimed flagship planar magnetic headphones, D8000 Pro Edition.
To mark the year when we entered a new phase in our ongoing efforts for research and development, and in the pursuit of sound quality with the latest technologies, we are releasing a Limited Model of our flagship D8000 Pro Edition headphones, with a new stylish finishing concept and further upgrades. As symbolic accents, a luxurious and authentic matte black finish is applied throughout, and gold-plated perforated metal is used for the AFDS driver. Meanwhile, the structural and acoustic design of the driver, and dedicated housing construction, which optimizes sound quality and is highly acclaimed worldwide, have been retained.

In addition, for the first time, high-grade Washi (Japanese paper) with excellent durability, air permeability, moisture control, and antibacterial/odor-eliminating properties is used as the earpads' material, providing the best fit and comfort. A dedicated Attache Case-Type New Carrying Case with * TRAVEL SENTRY® Approved Lock has been newly adopted for this model. 2 types of detachable cable, OFC silver-coated balanced cable ( XLR 4-pin / 3m ) and OFC black balanced cable ( 4.4mm TRRRS / 1.5m ) for portable use are included as accessories, making it a full-fledged package that is truly the pinnacle of the Pro range.

* “TRAVEL SENTRY” is a registered trademark of Travel Sentry, Inc.
Delivering both the delicate high frequencies unique for a planar magnetic driver, and the rich bass sound with a sense of openness unique for a dynamic driver
[Low frequency range with a sense of openness and sufficient necessary volume]
Conventional planar magnetic headphones' driver unit is normally designed to have a higher limit of the lowest frequency of bass it can reproduce in order to prevent the diaphragm from coming into contact with the magnet when the playback volume is high.

To compensate for the lack of bass due to this intentional design, the earpads are designed to seal the ear in order to create an enclosed space in front of the diaphragm. This shares the same principle that allows earphones sealed with earpieces to reproduce sufficient low frequencies despite their small size. Even though the method of sealing the earpads allows the bass to be reproduced down to the lower frequency range, the bass is lacking a sense of openness and fullness.

In the D8000 Pro Limited Edition, the AFDS (Air Film Damping System) solves the problem of the diaphragm coming into contact with the magnet, thus highering the limit of the lowest frequency of bass that the driver unit can reproduce is not necessary. Together with the breathable earpads, this system makes it possible to reproduce the rich bass sound with a sense of openness, which normally could only be achieved with a superior dynamic driver.

[Delicate high frequencies]

In reproducing subtle high frequencies, the lightweight nature of the diaphragm comes before anything else. Compared to other dynamic models with the same driver diameter, D8000 Pro Limited Edition's diaphragm is 1/3 lighter. A super thin aluminum coil is etched on the extremely lightweight film diaphragm, and as such, the adhesive essential for use between the coil and the diaphragm of a dynamic driver - which has a very negative effect on sound quality - is not necessary. With the D8000 Pro Limited Edition, problems originating from the adhesive have been fundamentally resolved, and the reproduction of a delicate sound in high frequency range has been achieved.

With a combination of the planar magnetic model's subtle high frequencies and the dynamic model's full and open bass tones, you would discover new details about the music you're used to listening to through the D8000 Pro Limited Edition ; they have you wanting to listen to your favorite music over and over again. With this product, you realize that high sound quality provides the impetus for experiencing the deeper aspects of music.
