T.H.E. Show 2013 has served as the introduction of a new all-in-one headphone combination from Audeze, Bakoon Products Int'l and Klutz Design.
The new combination will include a pair of Audeze LCD3 planar magnetic headphones, a Bakoon HPA-21 “current drive” headphone amp and a Klutz CanCans headphone stand in a special black leather edition with orange stitching and will be available through each manufacturer at the impressive price of SEK 42 995 including Swedish VATand shipment - a significant savings compared to purchasing each component separately.
“This new combination offers our customers an opportunity to acquire everything they need to get the most out of their Audeze LCD3s,” said Alexander Rosson, CEO of Audeze."When the teams at Klutz and Bakoon approached us to discuss a potential partnership in a creating a custom package with our LCD3 headphones, we were immediately on board. Especially considering not only the reception of the HPA-21, but also the fact that our LCD3 were used as the reference headphones in the development of the HPA-21, and we’ve been long-time users of Klutz Design stands, so the partnerships between all three companies was a natural fit. Through this great partnership, we’re now able to offer a product package that eliminates the guess-work of finding high-quality, high-performance amps and headphone stands to pair with the LCD3 headphones.”
The HPA-21 is the world’s one and only current driving headphone amplifier. By incorporating Bakoon’s unique circuitry, the HPA-21’s amplification technology is now perfectly refined for the level of quality expected when listening to Audeze headphones. Unlike the conventional voltage driving method, the HPA-21’s current driving method achieves far superior driving precision, high power and a low distortion level that is unmatched by any other available conventional headphone amplifiers. In addition, the analog battery power supply technology has been meticulously analyzed and employed into the HPA-21, which further enhances the performance of the circuit to the next level.
“We are extremely proud to be able to offer this package with Audeze and Klutz Design ” says Soo In Chae of Bakoon Products. Being one of the world’s truly reference headphones, the LCD3s are a great proof of the sound, power and clarity of the HPA-21 and the IC-circuit found in all of our Bakoon products.”
The CanCans headphone stand from Klutz allows Audeze LCD3 users to enjoy the beauty of the headphones while not in use. The sleek and elegant stand is sturdy enough to securely rest the LCD3s in a cradle and its unique form-factor perfectly complements the distinctive design of Audeze headphones.
