Dekoni Audio Colbalt Headphone
Dekoni Audio's latest project has brought forth the Cobalt – a high end dynamic driver closed-back made in partnership with Hifiman. Made with their latest driver technology and masterfully tuned by Dekoni's own engineers, the Cobalt is the culmination of everything that makes listening great. The Cobalt driver makes use of a carbon-coated diaphragm, engineering in such a way that the carbon coating can be placed anywhere on the driver. This allows for an incredible level of fine-tuning of the driver, and gave Dekoni the perfect starting point to build the rest of the headphone around. During Dekoni's testing, they experimented with placing different materials behind the driver in the earcup – the results showed the headphone responding strongly to any changes, and trended towards a decrease in soundstage in exchange for a deeper bass response. They also made use of the thick padded headband offered to them by Hifiman – ensuring an even amount of pressure across your head.
Last to be created was Dekoni's specialty – the earpads. They experimented with multiple styles using the Elite Series materials and high density memory foam, and had each style tested by the team. In the end they decided on the Fenestrated Sheepskin pads – the combination of comfort, breathability and resulting sound was the winner. Of course, they didn’t stop there – the engineers also created a unique set of Elite Velour pads, offering further enhanced comfort and an alternate tuning more to his preference. These Elite Velour pads will be included with the first 1000 units of the Cobalt – giving you the full Dekoni experience.
