The headphone experience isn’t just a sonic one—it’s a tactile one, too. To cover both with exceptional attention to detail, leading earpad manufacturer Dekoni teamed up with enthusiast headphone brand HIFIMAN to create the Cobalt: a pair of closed-back headphones that feel as good as they sound. On the sonic side, the Cobalt features large, cutting-edge dynamic drivers with carbon-coated diaphragms— each designed in such a way that the carbon coating can be placed anywhere on the driver. This allowed for the team’s engineers to meticulously tune each headphone for an expressive frequency response. Dekoni chose the Fenestrated Sheepskin Earpads from its Elite Series to bring class leading comfort, breathability, and last-step soundstaging to the Cobalt. Completing each pair’s plush wearability is a thick, padded headband from HIFIMAN—plus an extra pair of Dekoni Elite Velour Earpads.
The Dekoni Cobalt is a departure from the bass-heavy tuning of the popular Dekoni Blue Headphones. At the core of the Cobalt is an acoustic listening space that evokes emotion. The bright imaging and presence in the low mids engulf the listener in a sound field typically only found in higher-priced headphones. The Cobalt doesn't try to create excessive low-end and caters explicitly to more critical listening, with a comfortable build that’s every bit as impressive as the sound.
