Several years ago, Dan Clark Audio entered the audio market. electrostatic headphones with the launch of the exceptional Voce, which from the first moment received the highest praise from publications specialists in High End audio as renowned as Positive Feedback, Absolute Sound, Headphonics and Headphone Guru. In line with its philosophy of constant search for sound excellence at the highest levelthe American firm has just announced the marketing of the Corina, absolute reference headphones also based on electrostatic transducers that start from the Voce to elevate the intimate listening experience to levels of warmth and sumptuousness without precedents.
Thus, the Corina are the first electrostatic headphones from Dan Clark Audio that incorporate the revolutionary and exclusive Tuning System by Advanced Metamaterials (AMTS) from the Californian firm, used for the first time in the Stealth and Expanse models. Prodigiously engineered, the AMTS integrates waveguides, diffusion control, quarter-wave and Helmholtz resonators to eliminate standing waves, dramatically improving the sound performance. Specifically, the frequency response It is significantly smoother in the mid and high ranges of the spectrum, while being free of potentially annoying “peaks and dips”, resulting in a fuller, more accurate and enjoyable listening experience. Likewise, in order to guarantee maximum consistency between units, the Corina’s 88 mm diameter transducer is manufactured with a new tensioning system which increases diaphragm tension and tension uniformity to achieve better matching between transducers, which are then carefully leveled to ensure optimal sensational image and soundstage.
On the other hand, new pads with ergonomics improved, including a suede surface that prevents sweat and the usual “hot spots” on headphones. But the Corina pads are not only comfortable because, as most discerning fans know, they can seriously affect the sound of headphones, which is why both the new ones and the replacement ones intended for them are supplied in perfectly matched pairs. paired for reduce further the tolerance margins between the left and right channels and the variations from one unit to another. The ergonomics of the new Dan Clark Audio are also contributed by the new design of the headband, “imported” from the Stealth and Expanse models and which in combination with the aforementioned pads makes them incredibly comfortable.
