Highlights

  • Attention to detail down to the level of matching suede earpads that reduce heat and moisture buildup
  • Enhanced comfort featuring self-tensioning headband design

Award-Winning Legacy

Several years ago, Dan Clark Audio entered the Electrostatic headphone market with the release of VOCE. Since its introduction, VOCE has won numerous awards for "Product of the Year" and "Best Headphone" from preeminent publications such as Positive Feedback, Absolute Sound, Headphonics, and Headphone Guru.

But as usual, the team at Dan Clark Audio strives to continuously advance the performance of their products, and today they proudly introduce the CORINA Reference Electrostatic Headphone, taking electrostatic musicality into a future of fun!

Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System(AMTS)

Incorporating the Advanced Metamaterial Tuning System (AMTS), CORINA is DCA's first electrostatic headphone featuring their industry-leading AMTS technology first seen with the groundbreaking Stealth and Expanse headphones. With AMTS, frequency response is significantly smoother throughout the midrange and high frequencies, free of annoying “peaks and holes” for a smoother, more complete, accurate, and enjoyable listening experience.

AMTS allows DCA to re-imagine the voicing of CORINA to deliver the most natural midrange heard in an electrostatic to date. From powerful bass to the incredibly rich and well-balanced mids and highs, CORINA delivers an incredibly smooth and lifelike experience, full of electrostatic resolution, yet free from the high-frequency emphasis / glare common to many electrostatics.

New Voicing

By reducing the emphasis on higher frequencies typical of many electrostatics headphones, VOCE delivered a new take on how the electrostatic headphone could sound. With a wider and deeper soundstage, a stronger bottom end, and a smoother, richer midrange, CORINA delivers a fun, yet lifelike tone with sumptuous vocals and bass that really kicks. Unlike many electrostatics, CORINA is even fun with electronica and rock.

Ear Pad Matching

New ear pads have been developed with enhanced ergonomics, including a synthetic suede surface for the face contact, avoiding sweat and “hot spots” common to headphones. There’s more to ear pads than just their comfort, though. As most listeners know, ear pads can affect the sound of headphones dramatically.

While drivers can be precision matched, ear pads, which involve welding or stitching fabrics and use of foams, have always limited the actual tolerances of the headphone. All CORINA new and replacement ear pads are delivered as matched pairs to further tighten the tolerances between the left and right channels and reduce unit-to unit-variances.

Multiple Comfort Enhancements

CORINA utilizes the new self-tensioning headband design found in the flagship Stealth and Expanse headphones, for an incredibly comfortable yet hassle-free fit. Paired with the new ear pads and using DCA's signature titanium alloy headband design, CORINA is incredibly comfortable to wear.

New Industrial Design

Dan Clark Audio has always taken pride in industrial design, and CORINA is no exception. With its striking new grey finish and sculpted grill, CORINA is as much a delight to the eyes as it is to the ears.
