Sentio headphones offer open or closed listening choice

by • February 8, 2016 • No Comments

Open-back headphones, where the outer earcups are perforated to allow air and sound to pass freely in and out, can bring a additional effortless, spacious feel to music listening. But sound leakage is a big drawback – users can hear much of the world around them and anyone nearby can unquestionably hear sounds coming of the headphones. Closed-back headphones, where the outer cups are solid, contribute additional isolation, but staging can feel restricted and the listening experience quite much in your head. The Sentio headphones of British audio house Rock Jaw combine both headphone creations in one.

Rock Jaw says which the Sentio headphones are the outcome of two and a half years of research and development, and showcase a hybrid driver configuration as well as the open/closed create. With a turn of the outermost part of every earcup, users can switch between living room-friendly open-back headphones and transportable closed-back headphones which aren’t going to annoy your man commuters.

Each housing has a 30 mm driver of the kind which can be discovered in on-ear headphones and a 50 mm driver which’s usually reserved for circumaural headphones. This hybrid approach is said to take the most aspects of both creations, outcomeing in headphones which donate a tight, punchy bass, “an great response in the mid-range” and crisp, clear highs. They’re reported to have an overall frequency response of 19 Hz to 21 kHz, 100 dB sensitivity and impedance of 32 ohms.

Stainless steel and aluminum construction allows for the Sentios to tip the scales at only 340 g (12 oz), they have synthetic leather cushions, with optional velour pads in addition on the market, and they’ll come with a 1.2 m (4 ft) and a 4 m (13 ft) audio cable. An optional microphone boom can be plugged into the right cup for bringing calls or communicating with virtual mobile assistants.

Rock Jaw has a working prototype of the Sentio headphones in the bag, but has turned to Kickbeginer to bring them into production. The campaign runs until March 3 and, as of writing, pledges begin at £130 (about US$190). Backers are in addition being given the accident to select the color of the stitching and have up to six letters engraved on the housing. If all goes to plan, shipping is estimated to begin in September.
