It’s not often a completely new technology takes the audio world by storm. Gold Planar’s GL850 headphones are backed by one such technology. Featuring Air Motion Transformer (AMT) drivers—electronic transducers that facilitate air movement that’s four times faster than a common voice coil—these headphones provide a detailed listening experience unlike almost any other. In addition, an acoustic noise filter suppresses hiss while the driver is at work. Structurally, the GL850 employs an aviation-grade aluminum frame and ultra-thin diaphragms to capture as much as 6.3 times the amount of sound as a standard planar diaphragm. Covering the Hi-Res audio frequency spectrum of 10 to 40 Khz, the headphones accurately represent original audio recordings in their purest form. Even the headband has been designed for long listening sessions, thanks to its ergonomic shape and flexible support.
