There’s something undeniably magic about electrostatics. Whether it’s loudspeakers or headphones, their ability to resolve inner detail and to reproduce music with immediacy, transparency,and focus is unparalleled. Utilizing an almost massless thin film membrane, they have long been regarded as the Holy Grail, and their sound is magic.
ENIGMAcoustics came into existence with that belief. And as a company devoted to electrostatic design, ENIGMAcoustics made a statement right out of the gate with the groundbreaking Sopranino electrostatic super tweeter. Its design, built around the patented SBESL™ (Self-Biased Electrostatic) technology, eliminates the need for an external AC connection to provide a polarizing voltage.
The patented SBESL™ technology is implemented as a miniaturized work of art in the Dharma D1000 Electrostatic/Dynamic Hybrid stereo headphone. Augmenting the electrostatic HF element for lower frequencies is a 52mm Wagami paper based dynamic driver, which provides not only bass extension to 5Hz, but palpably impactful mid bass as well. It transitions seamlessly to Dharma D1000's electrostatic tweeter with a phase coherent first order slope.
Lightweight & Comfortable
At 450 grams, Dharma D1000 is comfortable, ergonomic and stylish. Its design features a high-grade aluminum alloy housing and sound that will envelope the listener in nothing less than electrostatic serenity. We can't wait for you to try it, we know you're going to love them!
