Breakthrough Electrostatic Technology

Featuring the most advanced electrostatic technology in
decades, Audeze proudly introduces the 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 the audiophile version of CRBN, which top audio professionals
have called the best sounding electrostatic headphone to-date.

Every CRBN is Made to Order!

Patent-pending carbon nanotube film

  • Works
    with all 580 Volt Pro Bias amplifiers
  • Accurate
    low frequency performance
  • Excellent
    dynamic range
  • Lightweight
    and very comfortable

Designed with Purpose

Audeze originally developed this new technology working with
Prof. Mark S. Cohen Ph.D., UCLA School of Medicine and his team, for use in
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Typical ferrous metals could not be used, so
we had to develop a new material, and that led us to patent a special thin film
with suspended carbon nanotubes. This solves the problems associated with
lamination and deposition on the film.

Carbon Nanotube Technology

The CRBN driver includes a revolutionary ultra-thin
diaphragm with carbon nanotubes suspended inside the material – unlike other
electrostatic diaphragms, there is no coating. Because the charge is
distributed throughout the film, this results in a uniform driving force that
reduces distortion and improves clarity, resolution and transparency.

Supreme Comfort

CRBN offers supreme comfort with its lightweight
construction. At 300 grams, the minimalist design features materials such as
magnesium and carbon fiber, which shaves off every gram while maintaining
strength. The earpads are extra plush and slightly oversized, for a great seal
and pillow-soft, cranium-cradling comfort.

Elegant Design

CRBN is the ultimate in luxurious design, from the smooth
curves of its uniquely etched grill, to the depth of its finely polished
acetate rings. Featuring hand-stitched premium leather, every detail has been
fine-tuned, all the way down to the feel of the machined aluminum 5-pin

580 Volt Compatibility

CRBN is compatible with “Stax Pro Bias” 580 Volt amplifiers
such those from Woo Audio, Linear Tube Audio, Mjolnir Audio, Headamp, Stax (of
course) and others. The cable is terminated with the industry standard 5-pin
barrel connector for maximum compatibility.
