Quad Era-1 Planar Magnetic Headphones, with cable and case.
Planar Diaphram Headphones
Quad has been responsible for many landmark hi-fi products throughout its history, none more famous than successive generations of the ESL – the world’s most revered electrostatic panel loudspeaker, a technology invented by Quad’s founder, Peter Walker.
To create the ERA-1 – the company’s first-ever headphones – Quad developed a planar magnetic driver delivering fast, open and transparent performance. The resulting sonic realism and fidelity to the source are fully in keeping with the brand’s heritage, displaying qualities akin to the famous ESLs.
These headphones get superb reviews, from Ken Kessler amongst others and have a superb sound, look and feel! There is little to compare at this price. We are authorised Quad retailers and proud to be so. We always have Quad equipment on demo and we are happy to answer any questions or discuss any products.
Most headphones use mass-produced dynamic cone drivers, the limitations of which can hamper transient response and cause an uneven frequency response. Quad’s cutting-edge planar magnetic technology delivers a more natural and accurate sound, ensuring you hear every nuance of a recorded musical performance.
