Quad’s first-ever headphones, the ERA-1 headphones use planar magnetic technology with patented nonlinear vibration suppression technology
A metal cavity behind the driver is specially designed to enhance sound quality and the drivers themselves are “closely matched”.
The ERA-1 driver’s flat conductor pattern, with an absence of inductive components, “…eliminates inductance-related intermodulation distortion…” said the company.
The Quad ERA-1 combines high sensitivity with low impedance to enable performance with a wide range of partnering devices, from portable audio players to high-end headphone amps.
Two types of ear cushion are provided – one made of soft leather, the other of latex topped with a fleecy fabric. A detachable 215cm cable is also supplied, together with a durable carrying case.
The Quad ERA-1 headphones are available from late July, at £599.95.
