Avantone Pro Planar Reference-Grade Open-Back Headphones - Red

Reference-grade open-back headphones with planar drivers for extreme detail, and supreme comfort for long sessions - the perfect solution for mix engineers, musicians, podcasters, live-streamers, and hi-fi enthusiasts

MFR# PlanarRed

Product Description

Avantone Pro Planar is the culmination of Avantone's experience in creating reference-grade monitoring products, and the demands of modern, professional end-users. Featuring planar drivers for extreme detail, and supreme comfort for long sessions, Avantone’s Planars are a perfect solution for mix engineers, musicians, podcasters, live-streamers, and hi-fi enthusiasts.

Planar magnetic driver technology

Planar drivers offer an incredible set of advantages over traditional moving coil drivers. Amazing accuracy, high-end detail, clarity, natural bass and response time. Traditional moving coil drivers use a magnetic field to push/pull the driver in one direction and rely on the surround’s elasticity to return the driver to the neutral position. Planar drivers utilize a technology that mixes principles between dynamic and electrostatic drivers — they are constructed by a precise array of magnets that are evenly spaced across both sides of a thin, electrically-active diaphram.

Due to the nature of this magnetic field’s precision, force applied to the membrane is distributed in a symetric fashion which produces a signal with very little harmonic distortion, and incredibly fast response times. And because planars use front and rear magnets to apply equal forces in both directions, there is far less weight applied to the driver material, which results in a much more natural sound with less distortion — allowing for hours of fatigue-less listening.

Avantone’s Planar headphones also employ an open-back design, with a perfectly tuned chamber that results in a very flat-frequency environment, without the typical pressure build-up, acoustic resonance, and frequency curve of closed back headphones. The result is an audiophile listening experience that can even be enjoyed portably!

Headphones that meet the modern day demands

Planar might be a bit larger than typical headphones, but that doesn’t change the need for comfort! Planar is perfectly weighted for long-listening sessions, and provides additional comfort with their soft and spacious ear pads. Sessions that last for hours will only feel like minutes when wearing them!

Avantone Planars also include a high-grade, removable 3.5mm cable that can be plugged into either side! Maybe you’re working with a large instrument, or a specific rig that makes the typical “left side cable output” feel awkward; just plug into the right side! Planar also ships in an eco-friendly shoulder bag with room for your accessories — and even a pouch for it’s included cable.

FEATURES:

  • High definition planar driver technology outperforms typical dynamic headphone designs, providing an uncompromising, natural sound
  • Low distortion, fast response, and flat frequency response for more precision and accuracy when monitoring and mixing
  • Over the ear, open back headphones with a lightweight design for greater comfort when wearing for longer periods of time
  • Low impedance and amplifier requirements for better use with recording interfaces, hi-fi systems, or mobile devices
  • Extremely wide frequency response from 30 Hz to 30 kHz
  • High-grade, removable 3.5mm cable that can be plugged into either side
  • Includes lightweight eco-friendly carrying bag

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
