With conventional planar magnetic models, amplitude was
an increasing low range, and the diaphragm came into contact with
magnets. To solve this problem, we took measurements by conducting
diaphragm simulations using the finite element method and laser Doppler
devices numerous times, and estabished
new diaphragm braking technology known as AFDS - Air Film Damping System.
In doing so, the shortcoming of planar magnetic models - the low
reproducibility of bass tones - was solved. This technology could be
considered a reinvention of planar magnetic models.
With D8000, the problem with the diaphragm coming into contact with
magnets has been solved through AFDS (Air Film Damping System), and it
has become possible to reduce the frequency of the bass tones
that the driver unit can reproduce. Combined with breatheable earpads, bass tone reproduction with a volume
and open sound only achievable with superior dynamic models is possible.
Designed with prolonged use and ease of repair in mind
So as to make repairs and future upgrades possible, almost every part has been designed in such a way
that they can be disassembled, ensuring that the product can be used for many years following purchase.
A machined aluminum magnesium alloy housing
To establish AFDS, an extremely high level of precision compared to typical driver units is necessary.
Because of this, the machined aluminum magnesium alloy housing has been machined with great precision.
By applying the kind of leather coating finish used with high-quality
cameras, we've also taken measures against minute vibrations.
Newly-developed detachable cable
We've developed a new cable for the D8000. Two kinds of
cable are included – a 3.5mm mini plug type (1.5m) and a 6.3mm standard
plug type (3m).
