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.

SBESL™ Technology

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!

EFF'ing COOL !Review by The Old Mad Dog
I could have written this during Can Jam at RMAF 2015 having walked around comparing Drew Baird’s demo Dharma D1000 to every other TOTL headphone making an appearance that weekend. But, it seemed more appropriate to have my own Dharma with Silver Dragon cables in hand before cutting loose with my opinion. (I also listened to the Dharma at Questyle with the stock cable. Yes, very good but a little shy. Cables do make a difference.)

Anyway, as I was walking around Can Jam with the Dharma plugged into my Chord Hugo / iPhone 6 Plus combo, Jude Mansilla of Head-Fi yelled to me, “What do you think?”

I blurted out, “These are so way eff’ing cool!” and they truly are.

When I first heard about this headphone with a paper driver and an electrostatic tweeter, all I could think about was the great Mark Levinson Hartley Quad Decca system from years gone by. That was a system far beyond anything else of its period. The Decca ribbon tweeter on top of the electrostatic speakers and the huge subwoofers was truly breath taking. I can still hear the sound of wood blocks being rapped with drumsticks through that system. It gives me chills to think about it.

When I ordered the Dharma 4 months ago, I was hoping that the HQD was going to be in a set of cans and it certainly is.

The sound stage is very, very wide and when listening you can see the depth of the performers on stage - just like being at a concert. And, this is a headphone which begs you to really turn it up.

For me, this is the most “fun” headphone I’ve ever owned outside of a Stax electrostatic (I’ve long forgotten the model) back in 1973. When I say “fun”, I really mean it. This is a headphone meant to be cranked up with Quicksilver Messenger Service from the ‘60’s along with Cream performing “Crossroads” live. The Dharma was made for rock/blues such as Canned Heat and Led Zeppelin. And, Arianna Grande with the Weekend sounds amazing.

The craziest thing about the Dharma? It sounds great straight into my iPhone and is really great with my Schiit gear. On the other hand, My Fostex TH900’s (also from Moon Audio) are truly dreadful through Schiit. Either headphone through the Chord Hugo utilizing the Silver Dragon cables? FANTASTIC!!!

If you want to own just one headphone and don’t want to spend $3,000 to $5,000 on the perceived very best, take the Dharma. It can be an endgame for you.
