The attainment of overwhelming realism through weighty bass tones
 

Weighty bass tones are realized with a full-range dual balanced armature driver unit. Employs a titanium 64 housing shaped using a 3D printer. This is a form that allows for realistic music reproduction while curbing unnecessary vibrations.


<Regarding the LAB Series>
Following the concept of “creating something never seen before”, these challenging products will before long be marketed as the final audio design LAB (laboratory) series.

 

 

Cechy charakterystyczne

 BAM mechanism produces bass sounds and stereo spatial interpretations

 

The balanced armature driver unit is beset with a number of problems with regard to its configuration, whereby sound is emitted through the activation of the armature.

Full-range dual balanced armature driver

Dual use of final audio design’s original full-range balanced armature driver unit. By doing so, we’ve realized a weighty bass tone.

Titanium 64 housing formed via 3D printer

Shapes formed using a 3D printer don’t just appear with the touch of a button.
Different knowhow is especially necessary at each point when it comes to forms created from metal. Each point is quantified and accumulated as explicit knowledge. But when it comes to deciding how to go about combining all of this different knowhow and in what order of precedence, then what is necessary is the intuition of the craftsman. Rather than rendering the work of the craftsman unnecessary, shaping metal using a 3D printer necessitates there being human resources that could be termed digital craftsmen, in that they consider the output data to be created that takes into account the shape of the finished product, the cost, precision, the smoothness of the surface and a number of other elements. To reach the best output data for the housing here, we trialed a great number of prototypes.

And finishing off the surface is not easy either. The 3D printer irradiates metal powder over an extremely small area with a laser, melting it and then hardening it over and over so that the form is created. Owing to this, the surface is pocked with the marks left by the laser’s irradiation and has a rough finish. Polishing this up requires just as much knowhow as shaping the object does. It was thought that polishing it to the degree that its precision as a product was maintained was impossible. Here, with the cooperation of a coordinator specializing in specially-processed metals, we combined the skills of the craftsmen in many ways and with the output from the 3D printer, realized a beautifully polished finish for the titanium 64 (usually a hard metal to polish) housing.

 Original ear pads – two types to choose from

The thin part of the silicon ear pad that seals the auditory canal resonates with alacrity. The more the seal strength is increased and the sound insulating properties heightened, the greater the influence of the resonance. Bass tones from the resonance of the ear pads invariably reverberate in a sluggish manner, and the music’s vividness is undermined. At final, we created more than one hundred samples and selected the ear pad that made the most natural bass sound production possible. We enclosed five sizes (SS / S / M / L / LL) together, enabling the consumer to choose the one they prefer.

 Stainless mesh filter + acoustic resistor

We’ve achieved a balance between medium and high tones with stainless steel mesh and acoustic resistor.

 

Original flat cable that eliminates “touch noise”

We’ve enhanced the flexibility of the cable and increased its thickness, thus reducing touch noise.
