Dan Clark Audio E3 planar magnetic, closed back, ultra high performance headphone. E3 delivers a stunning level of performance and value, incorporating all the technological and ergonomic achievements of our flagship headphones, but at a more accessible price point.
Headfonics.com: The E3 is as close to closed-back planar audio nirvana as you can get right now.
Incorporating an all-new 5th generation driver and our pioneering Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System, or AMTS, E3 delivers a true flagship performance, without the flagship cost.
- Now on demo - these are an incredibly good closed back headphone and we're betting they will replace the need for open back headphones for many folks. That metamaterial really works - these really eliminate the L-nothing-R soundstage problem with headphones. Bravo, Mr Dan!!
Naturally E3 is as comfortable as DCA’s other headphones; DCAs signature self-adjusting headband and ergonomics simply make extended listening a joy.
By unleashing top-of-the-line sound and comfort at midrange prices, DCA has set a new standard in headphone value, making E3 one of our most exciting projects to-date by bringing uncompromising TOTL performance to a much larger audience.
A critical feature of E3 is the enhanced AMTS tuning system, previously found only in our TOTL multi- award winning Stealth, Expanse, and Corina headphones.
AMTS is a patent pending inline device placed between the transducer and ear that integrates waveguides, diffusion control, and resonators into one compact structure that eliminates standing waves while giving us complete control of the high-frequency response profile.
E3 delivers an absolutely superbly rendered top-end that will surprise and delight, with a tone that is simply remarkably lifelike. In fact, the new E3 AMTS even reduces sensitivity to seal for a more consistent bass experience.
That would be the Dual-Mode Bass Port, yet another DCA innovation for E3.While it’s not unusual to find a bass port on a closed headphone, our ingenious dual-mode port delivers unrivaled control of the bass frequency response, creating a superbly balanced, impactful bass experience.
The all new Gorilla Glass 3 finish on the cups makes the glass stiffer and more scratch and break resistant, and the styling of the pattern under the glass evokes the mesh of an open-back headphone, a design cue to highlight the exceptionally open-back listening experience E3 delivers.
Headfonics: 9.3/10 : The Dan Clark Audio E3 is as close to closed-back planar audio nirvana as you can get right now. It is more spacious sounding than any regular closed-back planar combined with a dynamic tuning that provides a lot of 'joy' for everyday listening.
