Shipping with balanced and unbalanced cords, the SE-MONITOR5 presents a unique opportunity to reignite your passion for music in comfort and style.
Cellulose Nano-Fiber Drivers
The 50mm SE-MONITOR5 drivers are made from cellulose nano-fiber, which is wood-derived pulp that has been finely ground to several hundredths of a micronand smallerfor high strength and light weight. The material is stiff enough to enable extended high-frequency response, yet absorbs small resonances for faithful and natural source reproduction.
Base and Housing
The base and housing of the headphones are made from a rigid magnesium alloy that suppresses distortion-causing vibration, which results in enhanced capacity for deep bass at high volume.
The main chambers have sculpted diffusers, which channel sound pressure into ported sub-chambers that are vented to release the pressure from the system. This reduces sound pressure behind the driver so it can move as intended, thus generating clean bass response and reducing sound leakage.
Full Basket System
Drivers are held in place with a full basket system to suppress resonance. The magnesium alloy basket and base are secured together with screws.
The driver bases connect to the super duralumin alloy hangers, which use a floating structure with rubber insulators to prevent left-right channel interference.
Three cables are included with the SE-MONITOR5. 5.2' and 9.8' unbalanced cables are made with dual-braided wires and have gold-plated 3.5mm stereo connectors. The 5.2' balanced cable has dual-braided wires as well, and it terminates in a gold-plated 2.5mm 4-pole stereo connector. This cable splits left and right signals to eliminate crosstalk.
For all-day comfort, the SE-MONITOR5 come with two pairs of memory-foam earpads. One is wrapped in leather-like material while the other is covered in a velour-type cloth.
