We spent time carefully designing and selecting materials for the assembly of our headband. At its core the headband is constructed with heat-treated spring steel that is powder coated to prevent corrosion. This base is then padded with foam and (as outlined in our earpad replacement) wrapped in your choice of either lambskin leather or leather-free microsuede to create the perfect, comfortable fit.
To ensure your headphones are comfortable even during long listening sessions we tried dozens of foam material before choosing an appropriate match. The gentle bumps on the underside of the headband are where high-density memory foam cushioning has been attached to offer the right amount of support.
Inspected by Hand
Our material experts carefully inspect each piece by hand so they can examine each and every detail. This ensures every headband is free from scratches, blemishes, uneven stitches, dots, or deformation common in lesser earpads.
We worked with our leather supplier for three years to find the perfect material for our headbands. We finally found a luxurious, soft and supple black lambskin leather, and a slightly more expensive, lightly dyed and even more supple brown lambskin leather that were the perfect fit for our headphones. Both leathers are imported from a remote region in Italy.
Microsuede (Leather Free)
A number of you have told us you’d like an alternative to our leather products and we’ve responded by offering a leather-free microsuede (faux suede) option. The same care and diligence was applied to finding the perfect non-leather material fit for our headphones.
Carbon Fiber - COMING SOON
This is the newest headband launched by Audeze. The carbon fiber provides a modern and luxury image and it is the perfect combo for your LCD.
