Boundary-Pushing Hybrid Electrostatic Headphones

Praised by InnerFidelity, Headfonics, and Headphone Guru, the ENIGMAcoustics Dharma D1000 delivers all the magic of electrostatic headphones—that immediacy, transparency, and detail—with one key difference: It doesn’t require a traditional electrostatic amplifier. The company’s patented SBESL (Self-Biased Electrostatic) technology eliminates the need for an AC connection to provide a polarizing voltage, something that most electrostatics require. Add the Sopranino electrostatic super tweeter and 52-millimeter Washi paper-based dynamic driver, and you’ve got a frequency response that extends from 5 Hz to 40 kHz with an impactful mid-bass and a sweet, nuanced sound throughout. Headphone Guru says the Dharma D1000 “competes with the likes of the MrSpeakers Ether, Sennheiser HD 800, HiFiMAN HE6, and certainly the HE1000.” Headfonics adds, “The headphone world needs more models out there like this that push the boundaries of what is possible.”

I would not comment on the quality of these headphones based on the specs. I own a pair of them and I love them - and believe me I'm a picky consumer. I fell in love after listening to them at my favorite store. What I heard was the most believable midrange you can buy if you don't want to enter 3k USD price territory. The highs and the staging was also fantastic - and I'm very sensitive in this area. If you are a base fan - you will not be overwhelmed. Lows are there - but more like on the concert - adding to the music than like in a studio - 100% technically correct. Don't get me wrong - they are not boomy at all, they are just a little bit relaxed when you compare them to what is technically possible. For me it just adds to the fun factor they have - they just LOVE to play music - transposing you to the event. If you want to know to what they are comparable - it's easy - they are like my AKG Q701 on steroids. With more midrange and base - as if you just bought an AKG model but two levels above the Q701. And by the way - they ARE picky. After I listened to them for the first time I encountered them during some audio show - I had a listen, even showed them to my friend - what a horror. I wasn't sure how I could be so wrong - they just sounded like 50$ headphones. Only later on did I confirm that this was a component mismatch. They just need an amp of quality, NOT of power, they are really sensitive on themselves so they are not really hungry. Actually, you would be surprised - they sound really decent connected to the phone, but they will appreciate any better source and will reward you with the feast of music.
