Dan Clark Audio Stealth Planar Closed-Back Headphones

The Stealth is Dan Clark Audio’s flagship closed back headphone. The striking matte black and red design offers a teaser of its stunningly smooth, rich, and spacious sound. It offers great isolation and the proprietary Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System (AMTS) works with the all-new fourth generation driver to create a huge, wide-open soundstage. The self-adjusting headband and emphasis on ergonomics make extended listening extremely comfortable. 

Patent-Pending "Room" Tuning

All headphones are subject to high-frequency standing waves which can make treble sound harsh, fatiguing, or synthetic. Dan Clark's AMTS is a patent pending inline device placed between the transducer and ear. It integrates waveguides, diffusion control, quarter-wave, and Helmholtz resonators into one compact structure.

Diffusion reduces some standing wave formation while resonators act as both precision and broad filters to smooth and shape the frequency response, smoothing the sound from the midrange through the highest frequencies. The result if that high frequencies are rednered with a refreshingly smooth, accurate, and detailed delivery across all genres. 

Fourth Gen Drivers

Stealth's all-new 4th generation planar-magnetic driver delivers the smoothest, richest, and most detailed experience. It is 20% larger than the E2 driver and uses Dan Clark's patented v-Planar technology to reduce THD and improve low-frequency extension. These diaphragms are made on an all-new system for a more uniform and consistent tension, lower distortion, and better matching.

This highly engineered planar driver delivers incredibly low distortion throughout the listening range with levels of detail expected from top-of-the-line electrostatics. Unlike many headphones where “detail” is created through exaggerated high-frequency energy, Stealth’s AMTS delivers this resolution free from fatigue and harshness.

Your New Favorite Band

The Stealth's leather headband offers a good example of Dan Clark's inspired design and build quality. Taking design cues from stealth aircraft, the Stealth headphone is finished to levels you’d expect in the finest of luxury cars.

The leather headband's fine red stitching creates a quilted head-strap that’s not only gorgeous but is also functional and comfortable. The embroidered Stealth logo adds a dash of color to Stealth’s all-black aesthetic.

Gone are the mechanical sliders for fit adjustment; Dan Clark has designed a self-adjusting suspension system that immediately seats the headphone just right.

Stealth's ergonomic and stylish ear cups are a natural extension of Aeon 2 ergonomics with a more comfortable fit and softer ear pads. Stealth weighs in at just 415 g making it one of the lightest super-premium headphones on the market.

Finally, for storage or travel, Dan Clark has incorporated its elegant gimbal into Stealth, allowing it to fold into a compact, easy-to-stow case.
