What is it?
Inspired by Dr. Fang’s groundbreaking work on the Shangri-La systems this elegant system brings Electrostatic performance to unheard of value price. The Jade II Headphone is based on the Shangri-La Jr and has amazing transparency and detail. The Jade II Amplifier was custom designed from the ground up to optimally power the Jade. This system will blow your mind!
The Jade II is an open-back electrostatic headphone that looks like an updated version of the original Jade, but with more refined finishes and a distinctive iridescent blue-green diaphragm visible behind the headphone’s open-mesh anodes (or stators). The Jade II’s teardrop-shaped earcups are finished in satin black, as is its top headband frame. Beneath the frame there is a simple but effective height-adjustable leather headband strap. The Jade II earpads feature leather outer coverings, but with comfortable fabric inner surfaces and touch surfaces capable of wicking away perspiration. Following recent design trends, the Jade II headphone frame allows its earcup to swivel in the vertical axis, but not in the horizontal axis. Apparently, the train of thought is that there is sufficient flex in the frame to accommodate horizontal positioning adjustments, while the elimination of horizontal pivots improves that overall strength of the frame.
How does it work?
The Jade II epitomizes electrostatic speed and performance. A low-distortion nanotech driver measuring less than 0.001mm couples near zero distortion with lightning-fast response and a nano-particle coated diaphragm that provides an extreme high-frequency response. Nano particle coated diaphragms provide extended high-frequency response, revealing every last detail of well-recorded music.
The combination of lightweight aluminum alloy construction, padded earcups, and a hybrid headband design ensures a comfortable fit, even for extended periods of time.
The matching Jade II amplifier boasts analog performance from an all-solid state design. Sleek and compact, the amplifier is equally at home in a rack, on a desktop, or nightstand – anywhere listeners prefer to enjoy their favorite music.
