Planar are the first Avantone headphone to feature electrostatic technology and its design has been hewn by years of experience creating reference-grade monitoring products for audiophile and music industry professional.

Planar Magnetic Drive

Harnessing the power of both dynamic and electrostatic driver components, Avantone’s Planar drivers comprise a specially configured magnet array spaced along both sides of a thin active diaphragm. The precision of the magnetic field enables reproduction of audio signal with almost no harmonic distortion and incredibly rapid response.

By employing this technology, the Avantone Planar headphones deliver pin-point accuracy, rich detail, and a clear, natural sound across the frequency range.

Fatigue-less Listening

Because planar drivers apply equal directions forces to both their front and rear magnets, far less pressure is applied to the driver materials yielding a more natural sound. This also enables longer periods of listening without ear-fatigue, making the Planar a rock solid headphone for users such as mixing engineers, musicians, podcasters, live-streamers and even Hi-Fi enthusiasts.

Designed For Portability 

Despite the Planar’s spacious ear pads and comfortable assembly, the headphones weigh a total of just 480g. Each set ships with an eco-friendly shoulder bag complete with cable pouch and extra room for accessories such as desktop sound cards, digital audio players or DACs.

The included 3.5mm headphone cable can be plugged into either of the Planar ear cups with the same stereo image result. This unique design feature aims to aid manoeuvrability when using the headphones in less than ideal spaces.
