What could possibly be more intimate than listening to music through headphones? ADL engineers are currently working on an answer
to that but so far no word! It’s just you and the sound in your head.
Headphones are in intimate sonic and physical contact with the listener and reveal problems in the audio chain or the headphones
themselves! Too many headphones have too much bass, or they’re too bright with a thick, congealed midrange, most are uncomfortable to wear and ultimately fatiguing.
Triform Earcups are specially designed for a superior seal over your ears improving bass response over other designs. The Triform Contour
also reduces internal standing waves and reflections for reduced distortion. The headband flare over the Alpha Triform Contour Earcups
make the H118 Headphones supremely comfortable, an observation everyone makes before suddenly captured by the sound and falling
silent! The ADL H118 is balanced in a completely audiophile way, a very Furutech way. Rich tonal colors and textures with intimate and
close harmonic interplay, a sense of space and quiet backgrounds are the key. It’s an involving emotional experience when you’re THIS CLOSE to the music.
Furutech Pure Transmission technical tidbits abound; high noise attenuation, 40mm high-resolution extra-large high-flux
? (Alpha –Cryo treated) magnet drivers, a ring engineered to keep ultra-high frequencies in coherent phase and excellent transient response from
extremely light-weight coils made with copper-coated special aluminum alloy wire.
Pair H118s with Alpha Design Labs Esprit and GT40 USB DAC/Preamplifiers or the Stride and Cruise Portable Headphone Amplifiers, or any other
quality headphone playback system and become intimate with your music.
