Planar magnetic speaker technology is a dramatic change from traditional dynamic driver units. The unique structure and use of planar magnetic transducers overcome many limitations inherent in regular drivers.
Planar magnetic transducers typically consist of two main components: a diaphragm with circuit and magnet arrays. The “planar” in planar magnetics refers to the magnetic field that’s distributed in the same plane (parallel) to the diaphragm. Planar magnetic diaphragms are thin and lightweight compared to much heavier moving-coil or dome diaphragms found in “dynamic” drivers.
Planar magnetic drivers are beneficial because they are more responsive, have a wider sound range, low distortion and excellent sound quality while being more durable and amplifier friendly.
