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.

Open-Back Design

Headphones with an open-back design, allow air to pass through the earcups. This means that Open-Backs do not block any noise from around you, as closed-backs do, and music being heard will also leak outside to people around you. So they can only be heard in a quiet environment.

However, Open-back headphones do sound more natural and open. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting audio as if you are sitting at a live concert. Audiophiles swear by open-back headphones, and they sound quite different to closed-backs.

These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions, mixing and mastering music. They have an accurate soundstage presentation and precise imaging.

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, formally known as MrSpeakers, was founded in 2012 by Dan Clark. Since its inception, Dan Clark Audio has expanded and grown as a technologically innovative company.

Dan Clark Audio is proud to introduce EXPANSE, their new flagship open-back planar magnetic headphones. The EXPANSE sets a new standard in open-back headphones musicality, soundstage, detail retrieval, and comfort. The improved driver tensioning system creates a driver with incredible consistency across units for superb imaging and balance. FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) optimised motor structure increases driver motor-force uniformity and smooths the acoustic flow.

Dan Clark Audio has pushed all the boundaries in tuning and designing the acoustic structure in the EXPANSE to produce a full-range experience. The engineers at Dan Clark Audio have incorporated a single-ended planar magnetic driver (76mm x 51mm) fused with "V-Planar" driver processing that improves bass response and lowers distortion. The EXPANSE captures the speed, low distortion, and adherence to reference curves, which makes it the most capable planar magnetic headphone. The EXPANSE has a flagship level of technical performance that captures subtle nuances and details, making it a very engaging headphone. The EXPANSE allows you to experience the airiness and holographic delivery with the treble response. EXPANSE's low end has a certain addicting charm. It has an excellent extension and a deep, thick sound, with just a hint of extra midbass punch. Although the added midbass gives the music more warmth, it never pushes the low end to the point where you get tired of it. The mids shine well with male and female vocals that sound full-bodied. Dan Clark Audio's 4th-generation motor and AMTS deliver a sonic performance best described as "effortless." From a delicately plucked string to the most intense dynamics of an orchestra, or the weight and attack of a kick drum to the overtones a decay of a crash cymbal, EXPANSE delivers a balance of delicacy, nuance, and punch that will have you reaching for all your favourite recordings.

Dan Clark Audio has designed the acoustic structure to compliment the driver configuration. Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System (AMTS) created by Dan Clark Audio addresses concerns with high frequencies. Headphones are subject to standing waves in higher frequencies, making instruments like strings, cymbals, and even vocals sound unrealistic and fatiguing. AMTS is DCAs (Dan Clark Audio) patent-pending inline device; located between the transducer and ear. AMTS integrates waveguides, diffusion control, quarter-wave, and Helmholtz resonators into one compact structure to eliminate standing waves, dramatically improving system performance. Diffusion elements reduce standing wave formation, while resonators act as both precision and broadband filters to smooth and shape the frequency response from the midrange through the highest frequencies. With AMTS, the upshot is high frequencies are rendered with a refreshingly smooth, accurate, and detailed delivery across all genres. The planar driver delivers incredibly low distortion throughout the listening range with levels of detail found primarily in the top-of-the-line electrostatic headphones. EXPANSE's AMTS technology provides industry-leading resolution without wearing out; highs, in contrast to many headphones that deliver detail through exaggerated high-frequency energy.

The sound stage on the EXPANSE is breathtaking that will completely envelop your head in a cloud of sound. Left and right staging are dramatic with featherweight response and sensitivity. While there was no shortage of depth, what really will stand out is the presence of height in the sound image, truly giving new meaning to what layering means. EXPANSE is all-enveloping and can compete with any open headphone in depth, width, and imaging, with instruments occupying a correct volume in space. The effortless sense of space and instrument placement allows the EXPANSE to disappear so you can relax into your musical experience. The EXPANSE extends nicely into the upper treble, accurately portraying all of the harmonics and overtones with a good holographic and airy portrayal. It is comparable to most open-back headphones with soundstage width and can produce a more accurate feeling of distance and instrument separation. The EXPANSE offers remarkable layering capabilities, allowing you to hear just pure acoustic tranquilly. All instrument and vocal lines are distinguishable. The TrueFlow V2 technology helps improve dynamics and increase detail resolution. Allow the headphones, equipment, and even your daily worries to fade away; so that you can listen to music; the way it was intended to be heard.
