Premium headphone with natural sound localization and high quality sound. Comfortable & natural fitting design.
Doubt common sense and established theory! One can’t talk about headphones without listening to the CZ-1.
The CZ-1 has an open feeling of sound and the sound field spreads in front of your head. It has a naturalness and is fatigue free.
■Natural External Sound Localization (Front Side Localization) supported by ART (Acoustic Resonance Technology)
A lot of music sauce is mostly made by adjusting the position of a voice or the musical instrument or a sound of the space on the assumption that are playing back the music through dual channel stereo speaker. However, by the conventional headphones, we have a problem called "internal sound localization" which is listened the sound internal head and was it can't be reproduce correctly the intention of the music software producer.
CROSSZONE paid attention to this problem and reduced this problem by an original technology.
When we play music with stereo speakers in a room, for example sound reaches to the right ear is, ① from right channel speaker directly, ② from left channel speaker reaching to the right ear coming around face, ③from walls which is reflected, such as from these three big routes sound reaches. CZ-1 reproduces these three sound waves. Two driver units (for high frequency sound/ for low frequency sound) plays main music source ①, and the other driver unit is exclusively used for the reverse channel sound source. Between route ① and route ② there is a different distance, and a time lag occurs. In addition, the reflection sound ③ arrives with time lag too. This time lag is controlled using an original ADC (Acoustic Delay Chamber) technology. And the sound of each route arrives at the element except the temporal axis including the frequency response changes. It is ART (Acoustic Resonance Technology) which controls them. It’s achieved all by purely acoustic technology, not digital signal processing, and the result is a natural sound field.
In order to intend more effect of external sound localization we recommend you to put an ear pad to touch a bit behind your auricle such as more front direction.
■Actualization of natural sound quality and good balance of sound frequency
■The comfortable fitting design allows for long periods of listening without fatigue or discomfort.
■A striking visual design, born from the unique internal structure
■Dedicated cables to support high sound quality and high-resolution
A dedicated high quality cable is supplied with the CZ-1. The OFC (oxygen free copper) cable features an anti-noise, twisted structure. As there are 8 cores (4 X 2) separated from the plug at the amplifier side, this assures left-right channel separation. In addition, as the housing cable connector has a waterproof structure, sound quality variation due to air leakage is well controlled.
The high quality cable supplied can be connected to either the left or the right earpiece. This adds to comfort and convenience when using the CZ-1. This feature also reduces wear and stress on the cable and the headset. (Left / right channel integrity is maintained, whichever side the cable is connected)
In case of listening for example on the sofa with a short distance to the amplifier, CROSSZONE includes a 3.5m cable as well as a 1.5M cable for use with portable audio products.
