A Fusion of Elegance and Acoustic Excellence

E3 is not just a pair of headphones; it's an artistic statement. The striking aesthetic, inspired by the grandeur of luxury sports watches, is achieved through the use of robust, high-strength carbon fiber in its construction. The result is a pair of headphones that is not only visually captivating but also incredibly durable, with each unit featuring a unique, textured faceplate.

Signature Open-Back Experience in a Closed-Back Design

What sets the E3 apart is its ability to deliver the expansive, open-back sound signature that Dan Clark Audio is renowned for, while also providing the isolation of a closed-back design. The headphones utilize a patent-pending Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System (AMTS) along with a new 5th generation driver. This combination ensures a smooth tonal experience, rich in detail, and a soundstage that feels vast and unconfined.

Innovative Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System (AMTS)

The E3 incorporates the advanced AMTS, a feature previously reserved for Dan Clark Audio's top-of-the-line models. This system effectively eliminates high-frequency standing waves, delivering a treble response that is smooth, natural, and free from harshness or fatigue. Each E3 headphone is custom-tuned using this system to provide an unmatched listening experience.

Revolutionary Planar Driver Performance

At the core of the E3's unparalleled sound reproduction is its 5th generation planar-magnetic driver. Refined through extensive research and development, this driver offers a diaphragm tensioning system that reduces distortion and enhances consistency. The result is a rich, detailed sound that rivals the best electrostatic headphones, without the exaggerated high frequencies.

Dual-Mode Bass Port for Refined Bass Response

The E3 features a unique Dual-Mode Bass Port, allowing for precise control of the bass response. This innovative design ensures that the bass remains powerful yet clean, without any bleed into the midrange frequencies. It's a testament to Dan Clark Audio's commitment to providing an impeccably balanced sound profile.

Unparalleled Comfort for Extended Listening Sessions

Dan Clark Audio's focus on ergonomic design ensures that the E3 is as comfortable as it is sonically impressive. The self-adjusting headband, combined with the lightweight structure, guarantees hours of comfortable listening. The E3 is designed to be not just a listener's delight but also a joy to wear.

Aesthetic Brilliance with Gorilla Glass 3

The E3 isn't just about sound; it's a visual and tactile experience. The use of Gorilla Glass 3 in the construction of the ear cups adds to the durability and aesthetic appeal of the headphones. This robust material ensures that the E3 is not only stunning to look at but also built to withstand the rigors of everyday use.

The Ultimate Audiophile Experience

The Dan Clark Audio E3 Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones represent a culmination of technological advancement, acoustic innovation, and ergonomic design. Suitable for all music genres, the E3 promises a soundstage that is dynamic, a bass that is impactful, and highs that are silky smooth. With the E3, prepare to rediscover your music collection and experience audio like never before. It's more than just a headphone; it's an invitation to explore the depths of your favorite tracks in a way you've never experienced.
