Behind Our Headphones the Science is Sound
Who better to design headphones than a company that has been winning awards for sound innovation for 30 years. Our unique understanding of what makes a speaker sound magical in a listening room was applied in the design of our headphones. In our world class R&D facilities we used sophisticated measurement tools (including Angelina, our Brüel & Kjær Head and Torso simulator) to perfect such things as the noise-cancelling algorithms in our H15NC headphones. Undesirable noise is filtered out without compromising the purity of the signal. The H15NC’s dual microphone design offers balanced pick up and superb noise isolation/attenuation. Paradigm headphones deliver the full audio spectrum to the ear with crystal clarity and perfect tonal balance. The result is an intensely private, noise and distortion-free listening experience, one that makes music sound “live” and brings movies to life.
Sound Based On Science
Comfort-Tilt™ adjusts to ear contours ensuring a noise-isolating seal.
Flexible headband accommodates a full range of head sizes without adversely affecting the frequency response curve. ‘Just-right’ compression fit ensures comfort during extended listening sessions.
FlexiPoint™ slider, incrementally indexed to accommodate varying head sizes.
The Inside Story
Three layers of contoured foam: Memory foam provides a layer of comfort, high-density foam prevents low-frequency “bottom out” and the closed-cell layer isolates and attenuates background noise.
Paradigm's Seal of Approval
If the seal between ear and earcup is not perfect, bass performance will be compromised. In fact, you could lose as much as 10 dB (or more) of bass. Unlike many headphones on the market and despite the variations in human ear sizes and shapes, Paradigm’s design boasts a perfect seal. Frequency response is rich, deep, authentic and free from ambient noise and audible distortion.
