Top-of-the-line Performance, Extraordinary Value Headphone

E3 is Dan Clark Audio’s revolutionary new closed-back headphone. E3’s striking black and blue aesthetic, ergonomic shape, and Gorilla Glass clad cups are just a preview to the exciting upgrades within…

E3 combines meticulous tuning and state of the art engineering to achieve DCA's legendary “open-back listening experience” in a closed headphone. Meticulous tuning and engineering integrate their patent-pending Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System (AMTS) with an all-new 5th generation driver to achieve a listening experience that is not only incredibly musically accurate it’s also astoundingly fun, E3 delivers the kick of mule when called upon to rock, yet teases out the finest nuances of your most detailed recordings.

Naturally E3 is as comfortable as DCA’s other headphones; DCA's signature self-adjusting headband and ergonomics simply make extended listening a joy. By unleashing top-of-the-line sound and comfort at midrange prices, DCA has set a new standard in headphone value, making E3 one of their most exciting projects to-date by bringing uncompromising TOTL performance to a much larger audience.

A critical feature of E3 is the enhanced AMTS tuning system, previously found only in DCA's TOTL multi- award winning Stealth, Expanse, and Corina headphones. E3 not only brings this ground-breaking technology to a more affordable headphone, it does so with a new mode of implementation. All headphones are subject to high-frequency standing waves which can make treble sound harsh, fatiguing, or synthetic. AMTS is a patent pending inline device placed between the transducer and ear that integrates waveguides, diffusion control, and resonators into one compact structure that eliminates standing waves while giving the headphone complete control of the high-frequency response profile.

DCA's AMTS tuning architecture is "not one size fits all,” it is custom tuned for each headphone to deliver an optimised experience for each transducer. For E3 they developed a new mode of deployment that departs from prior implementations. We won’t bore you with the details, other than to say that the AMTS in E3 delivers an absolutely superbly rendered top-end that will surprise and delight, with a tone that is simply remarkably lifelike. In fact, the new E3 AMTS even reduces sensitivity to seal for a more consistent bass experience. Of course while AMTS renders high frequencies with a refreshingly smooth, accurate, and detailed delivery, bad recordings will probably still sound bad; we’re just humble magicians, not grand-wizards!

What are those holes in the glass, this would be the Dual-Mode Bass Port, yet another DCA innovation for E3.While it’s not unusual to find a bass port on a closed headphone, the ingenious dual-mode port delivers unrivalled control of the bass frequency response, creating a superbly balanced, impactful bass experience that is full of power yet free of bloat or midrange creep.

DCA have gone all-in with E3 to deliver the most exciting possible sonic experience, regardless of price, and combined that with an exciting new look and attention to comfort that make E3 the most exciting headphone they’ve released to date.

Equally satisfying with all genres of music, E3s soundstage, punchy bass, silky midrange, utterly smooth highs, and layers of detail will keep you engaged for days on end. Never fatiguing, E3 will have you revisiting your entire music library to experience your music like never before.
