ADVANCED ELECTROSTATIC TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPED FOR AUDIO PROFESSIONALS
Originally designed for high-tech medical circumstances, the Audeze CRBN is a pair of lightweight electrostatic headphones that offer a comfortable design and a nuanced sound perfect for Hi-Fi listeners. Featuring the most advanced electrostatic technology in decades, the CRBN electrostatic headphone (pronounced “carbon”) houses a new patent-pending polymer film with suspended carbon nanotubes to eliminate problems commonly found in previous electrostatic designs. The team at Audeze have adapted various innovations for the audiophile version of CRBN, bringing you the best sounding electrostatic headphone to date.
DESIGNED WITH UTMOST PRECISION AND PURPOSE
Audeze developed this new technology working with Prof. Mark S. Cohen PhD, UCLA School of Medicine and his team, to use in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Audeze created a new transducer technology, from the ground up, to eliminate the problems with use in MRI. Starting with a patent-pending thin-film diaphragm with embedded Carbon Nanotubes that provide an ideal environment for an electrostatic charge, the headphones use electrostatic force to create sound. This design solves many of the inherent issues with coated diaphragms and problems associated with lamination and deposition on the film.
PATENT-PENDING CARBON NANOTUBE TECHNOLOGY FOR CLARITY AND TRANSPARENCY
The Audeze CRBN features an open-back, over-ear design, which utilises a specially engineered driver which includes a revolutionary ultra-thin diaphragm with carbon nanotubes suspended inside the material. Unlike other electrostatic diaphragms, there is no coating in the CRBN. Because the charge is distributed throughout the film, this results in a uniform driving force that reduces distortion and improves clarity, resolution, dynamic response and transparency. By controlling the density of carbon nanotubes in the film, we can adjust the resistivity of the diaphragm material. Unlike a resistive coating, the carbon nanotube suspended diaphragm is immune to the elements and does not degrade over time.
LIGHTWEIGHT AND COMFORTABLE TO WEAR FEATURING MINIMALIST DESIGN
Audeze CRBN is the ultimate in luxurious design. From the smooth curves of its uniquely etched grill to the depth of its finely polished acetate rings. Every detail is fine-tuned. CRBN offers supreme comfort with its lightweight construction, weighing at 300 grams, the minimalist design features materials such as magnesium and carbon fibre, which shaves off every gram while maintaining strength. The earpads are extra plush and oversized, for a great seal and pillow-soft, cranium-cradling comfort.
WORKS FLAWLESSLY WITH 580 VOLT PRO BIAS AMPLIFIERS
Audeze CRBN being an electrostatic headphone is meant to be used with special corresponding 580V pro bias amplifiers. With a cable terminating in a standard 5-pin connector for maximum compatibility, the CRBN can work with Woo Audio, Linear Tube Audio, Mjolnir Audio, Headamp, and Stax amplifiers flawlessly.

Audeze's Journey of Achieving Audio Excellence
Audeze was founded by Sankar Thiagasamudram & Alexander Rosson in 2008. Enjoy the most engaging audio experience with Audeze's highly advanced transducer design. Audeze is known for making the world's best planar magnetic headphones. Audeze planar technology offers superior audio accuracy, clear soundstage with absolutely no distortion. These USA made headphones help you to experience music in its purest form. Audeze's planar driver consists of a diaphragm which is thinner than a human hair and it was developed by NASA’s space application projects. The journey of Audeze began with its LCD lineup which became highly popular for its exceptional performance. It was followed by some notable products like the Audeze Sine, Audeze iSine 10, even the pro gaming model Audeze Mobius. These products have helped Audeze to create a unique status in the audio market.
Precision Crafted for Perfection
Quality is the highest priority for all Audeze headphones. Each headphone is designed to achieve a high standard of quality using the most powerful magnetic field. This field consists of custom-cut, specially treated and cured magnets which are placed on both sides of the diaphragm. The Double Fluxor Array helps Audeze headphones to achieve the most powerful magnetic flux ever. This helps in the management of the diaphragm with the least amount of noise distortion. During the final assembly process, headphones are matched with wood rings and textured leather earpads. Each headphone goes through a 24-hour burn-in followed by a thorough testing process.
Experience the Most Realistic and Pure Sound
Audeze headphones employ high-end planar magnetic technology which allows the headphones to deliver more natural, detailed and high-grade audiophile sound. This life-like audio of Audeze headphones makes you experience your music as if you are listening to them in a live concert. Giving you a sound which is close to how artists intended their music to sound.
Partnership with BMW DesignWorks
Audeze has partnered with Designworks which is BMW's subsidiary group. They gave the industrial design to Audeze's EL-8 series, the SINE On-Ear headphone, and the Deckard DAC/AMP/PREAMP. The blend of this cutting-edge design and Audeze's advanced planar magnetic technology helps in the creation of high-quality headphones that have a worldwide appeal
Handcrafted In USA
All the audio products designed and developed by Audeze are handcrafted in California. Audeze is a well-known premium audio manufacturer delivering the most accurate sound reproduction available in the world.
