Wave 5 Planar Magnetic Headphones
As the growth of portable digital music continues to explode, high quality headphones are becoming increasingly popular. Tidal Force is proud to introduce the exciting Wave 5 open-backed planar magnetic headphone, which utilizes one of the most sought-after technologies by headphone enthusiasts and is now available at an incredible price point.
Typically found in headphones that cost three times the price, the Wave 5’s planar magnetic drivers are like a crossbreed between dynamic diaphragms and electrostatic drivers. Combining the power of a dynamic driver’s magnetic field with the efficiency of an electrostatic driver’s thin sheet of flexible transparent film, the Wave 5s offer an exceptionally high-end sound. Thanks to the immense control over the large but light radiating surface, planar magnetic headphones can reproduce the incredibly detailed music, yet still produce full range, balanced and dynamic sound.
