Planar Magnetic Drivers
Traditional headphones use dynamic drivers, which use a cone and voice coil to create sound. This design is fundamentally flawed and has its inherent limitations. Planar magnetic speakers are fundamentally different from traditional dynamic speakers allowing them to overcome many constraints in dynamic cone drivers.
Planar magnetic drivers use an array of magnets in parallel with an ultra light diaphragm with a printed circuit. This array creates a magnetic field in which the diaphragm is suspended.
Ultra Light Diaphragm
Planar magmatic drivers use an ultra thin and light diaphragm with a printed circuit on it to create sound. When an audio signal is sent to the circuit it interacts with the magnetic array and produces a electromagnetic force that moves the diaphragm back and forth creating beautiful and accurate sound.
Omnidirectional Articulating Earcups
Traditional headphones use a fixed pivot points in order to conform to your head. Aeques uses a suspension system that allows the earcups to pivot effortlessly , conforming to heads of all sizes or shapes.
Ultra Light Clamping Pressure
Most headphones have 4 to 7 newtons of clamping force in order to stay on your head and create a seal. Aequus has only 2.5 newtons, as our omnidirectional articulating earcup design requires less force in order to achieve a perfect seal, this means you can wear Aequus for longer without any fatigue.
Customizable Side Plates
With four easy to remove screws you can easily change the side plates on Aequus to suit your style or listening preferences.
Laser Engraved Side Plates
Make your headphones even more personal. Side plates can be laser engraved with any custom artwork.
Mod away. With four easy to remove screws you can easily open Aequus and change the baffling and switch out the side plates.
