Dan Clark Stealth

Got 4K? Then say hello to Dan Clark Audio's Stealth [$3'999], their new flagship closed-back planarmagnetic headphone. It introduces a new synthetic material between diaphragm and ear to double-task as diffusor against HF standing waves plus precision resonators to fine-tune the frequency response. The thin-film membrane is a 4th-gen affair 20% larger than what's in the firm's Ether 2 model whilst the industrial design revisits their Aeon 2. Total wear weight is 415g, materials include suede pleather and carbon fiber and the suspension is fully self adjusting again to promise a very comfortable fit.
