HarmonicDyne Poseidon— A Beryllium-Killer Headphone is Launched on Kickstarter

Continued with the success of the HarmonicDyne Zeus flagship headphone, the Poseidon is developed and released based on the request of the audiophile community. It's a premium-grade headphone designed for the most discerning audiophiles. The Poseidon is among the first headphones to use an innovative pure nickel diaphragm. Compared with beryllium, pure nickel is four times in density and two times in tensile strength. A diaphragm driver made of purified nickel is much stiffer and more responsive, delivering a clearer sound with lower distortions. Combined with the open-back design, the Poseidon delivers a frequency response of 10 Hz to 40 kHz, allowing listeners to feel the incredible connection and transparency with the music.

What's more, a premium grade of solid maple wood is utilized to construct the housing cavity for the drivers. As a frequent choice of wood for making professional musical instruments, maple perfectly matches the new nickel diaphragm drivers because of its high responsiveness and acoustic projection. The solid maple housing allows emphasis of fundamental frequencies and quick decays, making for incredible note separation and clarity. On top of that, the sophisticated maple wood bespoke design casts a glamour over the headphone, making the Poseidon look as beautiful as it sounds.

Apos Audio Releases the Caspian Open-back Headphones for $499

Apos Audio is an audio retailer based out of California, and got in touch with us to let us know of the Caspian—the brand's first set of headphones. It came about as a collaboration with Soundnews and Kennerton Audio. Using the ~$1000 Kennerton Vali as the base, the Caspian gets a tweaked sound signature and different design while managing to cut down the price by half. It uses a 50 mm dynamic driver, natural oak ear cups, and oval-shaped ergonomic sheepskin ear pads. Pre-orders are now up for those interested, and further information straight from the company is seen past the break. I especially like the "How it's made" page, but that may just be the engineer in me speaking.

Hyland Headphones Adds Two New Models To Their Range Of Bespoke, Handmade High-End Headphones

Hyland Headphones, a boutique manufacturer of headphones based in Watford, on the outskirts of London, UK, has introduced their newest headphones: the Eclipse—the first closed-back model in the firm's line-up—and the Venus, the latest step up in the open-back range. The new headphones are the latest products of Hyland Headphones' research and development and feature the firm's widely applauded approach to building their products with care, and in small quantities, from beautiful, ethically sourced hardwoods.

The closed-back Eclipse (priced at £850) uses a complex cup design machined from separate pieces of wood in a two-step, two-day process, to give a sound quality that is the equal of their open-backed designs, but with the advantage of the passive noise cancelling that makes a closed-back design so appealing. The cup features an inner and outer chamber, with sound-absorbent damping in the outer chamber to ensure no stray reflections colour or distort the sound that reaches the listener's ear. The multi-wood design of the Eclipse also allows for additional customisation options: "...how about a creamy white Maple cup with a deep red Padauk top? Or a dark, gold flecked Panga Panga cup combined with the beautiful figuring of rippled Ash?"

Ultra-tiny Carbon Nanotubes Deliver Big on Headphone Audio Experience

I know what you are thinking—this isn't the typical news content we see on TechPowerUp. Yes, we do cover audio products with plenty of reviews here, including Audeze planar magnetic headphones. When Audeze mentioned there's a whole different thing coming up, and that it involves carbon nanotubes (CNTs), I was quite intrigued. Some of you may have picked it up by now, but all the neat toys I have access to and used in several reviews come because I am a research scientist by profession, with a specialization in carbon nanomaterials including CNTs. So this news post is about my attempt to help explain why the Audeze technology is such a big deal. This is not a review of the actual devices and neither is it a sponsored post, or even solicited by Audeze. It is purely me geeking out about a fairly novel use of CNTs in the audio world, especially when there have been CNT coatings on a few dynamic drivers before but barely put to the potential capable until now.

See, the whole reason the Audeze CRBN (Carbon, get it?) even came about is because an indirect research colleague of mine, Prof. Mark Cohen from the University of California, Los Angeles as well as his startup company SMRT Image, saw a need for a more calming influence for patients undergoing fMRI imaging, as well as better means for the technicians to communicate with said patients while they are inside an operating MRI machine. If you have ever been inside one, you would know that thing gets real loud with magnetic coils rapidly going around and clacking noises galore. Audeze is also based in California, and multiple years of research led to the development of the Audeze CRBN—starting off for medical applications and then coming out also as a high-end retail headphones experience based on the knowledge and IP gained in the process. Read past the break for more on the science and tech, if this is of interest to you!
