Why have 2 sets of headphones, when you can have a open and closed back headphone all in one..?

How does the Sentio sound..? independent review - click for full article

Sentio sound: 

Not many traditional full-size headphones use more than one driver, we chose to use a combination of two. A 30mm driver and a 50mm driver. 30mm drivers are often found in portable headphones that sit on the ear and offer good portability, but an often tinny and empty listening experience. Meanwhile, 50mm drivers can often offer a good bass response and forward highs, but forget about the mid-range - where a lot of the vocals in your favorite tracks are found.

By using a 30mm and a 50mm driver, the Sentio is able to deliver a tight, punch bass response that extends well and resonates without drowning out the rest of the track. We know how important vocals and instruments that aren't drums are to people, so the 30mm brings refined high notes that are never piercing or too much for your ears to take. The combination of the two deliver an excellent response in the mid-range, delivering great separation and texture to your favorite vocalists and singers and their accompanying instruments.

Sentio technical specifications:  

  • Drivers: Dual driver 50mm dynamic + 30mm (2x drivers per ear-cup)
  • Impedance: 32Ω
  • Sensitivity: 110+/-3db
  • Frequency response: 19 – 21000Hz
  • Open and closed back sound driver system
  • Jack type: Gold plated 3.5mm
  • Cord lengths - 1.2M + 4M. (Non microphonic)
  • Weight 340g

Sentio Bluetooth Module:  Features of the Bluetooth module will include: A fully removable/detachable Bluetooth Module allowing you to experience the Sentio Headphone without the need for a cable. A CSR Bluetooth signal using the higher-quality aptX codec. Users will be able to remove the module and use the provided cable at any time, for instance when the battery needs recharging. Just add £25.00 to your pledge to receive this module with your Sentio.

 Our delivery timescales: Due to the complex nature of manufacturing e.g. production molds/ pre-production testing. We expect our delivery timescale to backers will be in September 2016. However we aim and strive to achieve delivery before September 2016. The reason for this duration is to ensure we deliver a solid and well engineered product that is built to last. Our Sentio Kickstarter campaign is Worldwide.

With every Sentio pledge the backer will receive as standard:

1. Backer can choose from different color stitching from our selected colors, Please note, the red underneath on the headband will be black on production NOT red as displayed on the pictures + video presentation.

2. Backer gets to personalize, (engrave up to 6 letters of choice on your Sentio Headphone to really make it your own)

3. Backer will receive as standard product in retail packaging with our standard 1.2M cable & 4M. (Non microphonic)

4. Carry hard case for your Sentio headphone.

5. 6.3mm adapter

6. 2x Protein leather ear-cups

REST ASSURED: Highest quality first: Rock Jaw Audio has been responsible for products receiving 4/5 to 5/5 star reviews. From well known editors & magazines across the world.

Typically if you want to enjoy great audio quality you might opt to use a pair of open back headphones, but it simply isn’t advisable in a public environment with high amounts of sound leakage.

That leaves you with the choice – do you sacrifice audio quality to avoid that person tapping you on your commute asking you to turn down that racket? Fear no more!

Our goal from the start was to design and engineer headphones that were made for everybody. After two and a half years of intense research and complex development, we have created a fully functional open and closed back pre-production prototype set of headphones.

Whilst we have our working prototype, we still need your support to get the product over the finish line. By backing this campaign you will be among the first to experience premium Rock Jaw audio, coupled with unparalleled versatility. 

Fashionable and Functional: The headphones are manufactured in lightweight stainless steel and aluminium (weighing just 340g), offering a completely new experience, yet retaining our award winning sound signature.

What makes Sentio truly one-of-a-kind is its adaptable functionality. With a simple turn you can enjoy either an open or closed back sound whenever you want.

With the optional Boom Mic, the Sentio will come alive as a gaming headset. This will work with your smartphone, tablet or PS4 without any necessary changes. PC gamers will be able to use the Sentio and its Boom Mic with their PC Gaming rigs by adding £9.00 to their pledge to receive a small adapter.

The optional microphone (Add £8.00 to your pledge) boom jacks into the right side to facilitate voice communications (such as calls or gaming), adding further versatility to an already impressive package.

Want Velour earpads?! No problem just add £12.00 to your pledge and get an extra set of earpads or just chose to have a spare set of protein leather pads.

Want our Bluetooth module? Just Add £25.00 to your pledge.

Risks and challenges

No one wants to see a product executed poorly. The whole team have been working extremely hard to get this product ready for full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment processes to our loyal backers.

We have been consistently designing and manufacturing high-quality products for several years and we are absolutely clear on all the logistics involved. We completely understand the manufacturing process and quality control aspects involved to create these unique headphones. Our timescales already include an extra buffer period to ensure that any delays that may occur (for example a mechanical breakdown of a machine) would not impact delivery of your Sentio.

We are fully committed to customer satisfaction and this is reflected in the universally positive feedback from our highly satisfied reviewers of our other audio products. All supporters of our campaign will enjoy total transparency when it comes to updates.

Rock Jaw has been trading since 2012 so you can be completely rest assured on quality in every area of our products.

Our research and development team consists of many individuals and professionals from all around the world from all walks of life, to ensure we are catering for every genre and hitting the sweet spot for everybody to ensure the headphones we produce are tuned to give you nothing short of a full on eargasm regardless of music genre.
