Product Information

Featuring the world’s most advanced electrostatic technology, Audeze proudly introduces CRBN electrostatic headphone (pronounced “carbon”), which features a new patent-pending polymer film with suspended carbon nanotubes to eliminate problems commonly found in previous electrostatic designs. Originally developed for MRI medical applications, we've adapted those innovations for audiophiles, which top audio professionals have called the best sounding electrostatic headphone to date.


Audeze 120 x 90mm Electrostatic Drivers

  • Suspended carbon nanotube diaphragms
  • Ultra-low distortion
  • Enhanced transparency and accuracy
  • Extremely fast transients, even frequency response
  • Compatible with all 580 volt amps

Patent-pending Carbon Nano-Tube Embedded Diaphragms

  • Increased efficiency and control over diaphragm movement
  • Diaphragm motion is fully pistonic for dramatically reduced distortion, especially at high frequencies
  • Amazing bass response, neutral sound signature, and a wide-open soundstage
  • Web of embedded Carbon Nano-Tubes maintain the ideal environment for electrostatic charge
  • Nano-Tubes create a uniform driving force for higher sensitivity and lower distortion
  • Controlled resonance yields 15dB more bass below 40Hz compared to electrostatic competitors

Custom-designed Earpads

  • Better seal on a wider variety of head shapes for consistent comfort
  • Reduced parallel surfaces limit resonance to equalize frequency response
  • The interior foam and leather wrap easily conforms to the surface around the listener’s ears
  • Almost all unwanted earpad resonances and absorptions are eliminated
