Planar Magnetic Drivers

Planar magnetic drivers combine characteristics of several driver types. They employ magnetic fields akin to dynamic and balanced armature drivers. However, planar magnetic drivers, like electrostatic drivers, use a flat, thin diaphragm in contrast to a coil. The planar drivers are known for their quick transient response.

Closed-Back Design

Headphones with a Closed-Back design are completely sealed around the ear cup, allowing the sound to travel directly into your ears. This means that closed-back headphones block out outside noise, giving much better isolation, and minimising sound leakage to those around you.

Needs Amplification

Headphones and IEMs require a certain level of power to sound their best and work at their full potential. When your headphones or IEMs are underpowered, they can sound thin or muffled.

Amplifiers are required to provide adequate power to your headphone or IEMs to perform at their best. Simply put, amplifiers allow a weak audio signal to be boosted to a powerful one.

To put it into perspective, devices such as your phones and laptops come with an amplifier, but they offer very limited output power. This output may not be sufficient to power headphones and IEMs to shine at their best. This is where a dedicated amplifier is required to deliver adequate power to hear your music in all its glory.

Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.


Dan Clark Audio introduced the world to an innovative acoustic metamaterial tuning system and has launched its following lineup of closed-back headphones, the E3. The Dan Clark Audio E3 combines meticulous tuning and state-of-the-art engineering to achieve an open-back listening experience in a closed headphone. It is equipped with an all-new 5th-generation driver and Dan Clark Audio’s pioneering AMTS, with which the E3 delivers a dedicated flagship performance. Dan Clark Audio has incorporated all the technological and ergonomic achievements of the brand's flagship headphones at a more accessible price range. The Dan Clark Audio E3 is available in a striking black and blue aesthetic and ergonomic shape, with Gorilla Glass 3-clad cups just a preview of the exciting upgrade.



The all-new 5th-generation planar magnetic driver is accommodated in the E3 to provide high-fidelity audio in your music listening experience. Dan Clark Audio has selected this driver unit to provide the smoothest, richest and most detailed sound in your music listening experience. This innovative diaphragm is developed for tensioning systems that serve a more uniform and consistent performance, with lower distortion and enhanced consistency in your audio. Dan Clark Audio has extensively optimized the E3 planar driver, with the new diaphragm materials combined with highly optimized V-Planar knurling to deliver a remarkably smooth frequency response with low distortion throughout your listening range. These new planar magnetic drivers in E3 are coupled with AMTS to provide exceptionally high-res sound without fatiguing distortions and rough frequency response. The Dan Clark Auduo E3 delivers an impedance of 27ohms, sensitivity up to~90 dB/mW and distortion up to < 0.1% ref 80dB white noise.



Dan Clark Audio has featured the E3 with a critical tuning circuit, the Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System (AMTS). This acoustic system is also found in the TOTL multi-award-winning Stealth, Expanse, and Corina headphones. Dan Clark Audio not only incorporated this groundbreaking technology in E3, which is available in this price section but also has used a new mode of implementation of this technology. The 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 you complete control of the high-frequency response profile. This new E3 AMTS aims to reduce sensitivity and provides a seal for a more consistent bass in your music listening experience.



The Dan Clark Audio is not merely engineered to deliver the best listening experience to you but also serves the aesthetic feel with its design. The E3 takes advantage of every ergonomic trick Dan Clark Audio has developed, including the acclaimed self-adjusting headband suspension system from Stealth and Expanse and the convenient, stylish folding gimbals that make E3 a conveniently compact travel headphone. The earcups are crafted with a carbon-aluminium bonded design, while the body is constructed of titanium. The simple ergonomic design also features a protection shield (exterior) of the all-new Gorilla Glass 3 finish on the cups. The Gorilla Glass 3 crafted in the E3 is a thin sheet of alkali-aluminosilicate that 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.

2 Year Warranty

Don't sweat it, this Dan Clark Audio - E3 comes with a 2 Year warranty from Dan Clark Audio that covers manufacturing defects. All products featured on Headphone Zone are backed by an original manufacturer's warranty.
