The TH909 offers a wider dynamic range and low distortion, utilizing a 1.5 Tesla 50mm driver with repulsion magnets.
The diaphragm is constructed from Biodynina, a material composed of bio-cellulose and inorganic fiber admixture. This diaphragm design accomplishing rich low-end frequencies, natural mid-range, and an especially excellent presence in high-frequency production.
The housing features a double-layer structure composed of etching metal, diversifying the resonance points and presenting a gorgeous appearance. It is finished with a Japan Lacquer in Bordeaux manufactured by the Sakamoto Urushi factory, established 110 years ago.
