EXPANSE

Introducing EXPANSE our new flagship open-back headphone. EXPANSE sets a new standard in open-back headphone musicality soundstage detail retrieval and comfort. Featuring Dan Clark Audio's all-new 4th generation planar-magnetic driver and our breakthrough Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System EXPANSE delivers a stunningly smooth presentation to bring new depth and breadth to all your favorite music.

And we didn't stop at improving the sound; we also redesigned our headband to deliver a big step up in ergonomics and comfort!

Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System(AMTS)

Headphones are subject to standing waves in the higher frequencies which can make instruments like strings cymbals even vocals sound unrealistic and fatiguing.

AMTS is Dan Clark Audio's patent-pending inline device located between the transducer and ear. AMTS integrates waveguides diffusion control quarter-wave and Helmholtz resonators into one compact structure to eliminate standing waves dramatically improving system performance. .

Diffusion elements reduce standing wave formation while resonators act as both precision and broadband filters to smooth and shape the frequency response from the midrange through the highest frequencies.

With AMTS the upshot is high frequencies are rendered with a refreshingly smooth accurate and detailed delivery across all genres. OK bad recordings are still bad we're not magicians!

EXPANSE Redefines Detail

EXPANSE's planar driver delivers incredibly low distortion throughout the listening range with levels of detail heretofore found primarily in the top-of-the-line electrostatics. Unlike many headphones where detail is created through exaggerated high-frequency energy EXPANSE's AMTS delivers industry-leading resolution without fatiguing highs users may be used to.

Together our 4th-generation motor and AMTS deliver a sonic performance best described as effortless. From a delicately plucked string to the most intense dynamics of an orchestra or the weight and attack of a kick drum to the overtones a decay of a crash cymbal EXPANSE delivers an amazing balance of delicacy nuance and punch that will have you reaching for all your favorite recordings and maybe staying up a bit too late.

And last but not least there's the soundstage; EXPANSE is all enveloping and can compete with any open headphone in depth width and imaging with instruments occupying a correct volume in space instead of being rendered as points.

EXPANSE's effortless sense of space and instrument placement allowing the headphone disappear so you can simply relax into your musical experience. Let the headphones equipment and yes your daily stresses melt away leaving your music to be enjoyed the way it was meant to be heard!

EXPANSE Mechanical Design Innovations

We set out to make EXPANSE a real design statement said Dan Clark Founder and CEO. EXPANSE design takes its cues from our STEALTH headphone but adds an exciting and unique grill based on mathematical functions derived from the principals of generative design for a truly unique and stylish look.

The top grade black leather headband features fine blue stitching to create a quilted head-strap that's not only gorgeous but is also functional and comfortable. The elegant embroidered EXPANSE logo adds a dash of color to EXPANSE's all-black aesthetic.

EXPANSE the Ultimate in Comfort

Gone are the mechanical sliders for fit adjustment; Dan Clark Audio has designed a stable yet comfortable self-adjusting suspension system that seats the headphone just right with no muss or fuss

At just 418g EXPANSE is also one of the lightest super-premium headphones on the market. Taken together our new vegan suede and leather ear pads self-adjusting suspension and lightweight chassis make EXPANSE so comfy you can just ignore it and vanish into your music.

And for portability or storage we incorporated AEON 2's elegant folding gimbal structure into EXPANSE allowing it to conveniently pack into a compact custom case that's small and easy to stow
