JOKER keeps the gloom away!
MOONDROP announces a closed-back headphone, JOKER. As the first closed-back headphone of MOONDROP, It uses 50mm dynamic drivers independently developed by MOONDROP and is based on a magnetic circuit architecture optimized through FEA, and the large-size alloy-coated dome diaphragm provides a solid hardware foundation for high-quality audio monitoring. Let's see how it performs!
Joker was designed to meet the stringent monitoring requirements of professional recording studios. It delivers precise sound reproduction and avoids the inaccurate timbre and veiled details of traditional professional monitoring closed-back headphones.
To overcome common acoustic problems caused by cavity standing waves in closed-back dynamic-driver headphones, MOONDROP took as a reference point the structure of the legendary MDR-R10 closed-back dynamic-driver headphone.
The Joker features a large-volume brass acoustic cavity with an asymmetric structure, using a die-stamping process to reduce the weight of the housing. Acoustic damping material suppresses inner-cavity standing waves, and a damping pressure vent and damping acoustic short-circuit structure combine to deliver accurate timbre and fast detail response.
The Joker’s wider frequency response provides a better match for HRTF (Head-Related Transfer Function) characteristics, transcending the dull sound quality of traditional closed-back monitoring headphones, and restoring timbre, accurate details, and a more balanced triple-frequency range
The Joker uses standard dual 3.5mm headphone jacks to permit easy cable swapping for a variety of usage scenarios such as studio monitoring, professional mixing, and even audio-visual entertainment. And its quick-release ear pads are made of protein leather, offering quick and easy replacement and maintenance.
The exterior of the brass acoustic cavity is coated with a special black paint finish that will develop a unique and beautiful patina from repeated use and polishing. A special abrasive pad is provided for users wishing to create their own original finish. If you're DIYer, give it a try!
