A CanJam 2017 Favorite

Advanced Sound has been a hit with the Massdrop community for offering IEMs with accurate, neutral sound reproduction and an excellent value. Announced at CanJam 2017 in London, the Alpha marks the company’s entry into high-end headphones. This flagship—a fully open-back planar magnetic headphone—was also on display at the San Francisco Head-Fi Meet and the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. Equipped with a large 96-millimeter driver per side, it delivers a transient, fast response with an incredible soundstage and detail. After auditioning the Alpha in London, Audio Primate remarked on its “delicate treble, cushy pads, and comfortable band” and “nice and fluid” mids, adding “I’m really excited for all that Advanced is doing… These are just excellent work.”

Note: This is the exclusive, first worldwide sale of the Advanced Sound Alpha Planar Headphones. Members who join the drop will be the first to receive the headphones. Quantities are limited to 100 units.
