The new headphones are now available for pre-order.
RHA has revealed its latest audio device. The new CL2 Planar Wireless In-Ear Headphone is the first of its kind to use planar magnetic technology.
“The combination of industry-leading technology and remarkable materials used in the CL2 Planar results in a headphone like no other," said Colum Fraser, Marketing Manager, RHA. "The miniaturisation of planar magnet technology is a feat of engineering and the sound generated reflects this. As well as being technologically advanced and sounding great, the CL2 Planar is hi-fi Bluetooth compatible. We believe this creates a very special offering for people who love amazing audio and want that experience wherever they are."
The CL2 Planar uses the most compact planar magnetic driver ever released. The driver features a ten millimeter diameter with a planar coil and 16-micrometer diaphragm suspended above two matched magnetic fields. Meanwhile, zirconium dioxide provides a near-indestructible housing for the device. Connectivity options include detachable 3.5mm and balanced 2.5mm cables, along with a modified version of RHA's SecureFlex 12-hour Bluetooth neckband for wireless playback. Likewise, the Bluetooth neckband supports aptX and AAC streaming. In addition, the neckband includes a universal remote to switch between music, calls, and digital assistant functions.
"At the start of the design process for the CL2 Planar, my team were faced with the challenge of creating a new standard in acoustic engineering," said Kyle Hutchison, Head of Product Design, RHA. "We spent years researching and testing, and what we have produced is a world-first in magnetic driver technology - a true testament to the creativity and innovation at RHA. We needed to develop something strong and aesthetically superior to protect the incredibly intricate driver. The precision-engineered, injection-moulded zirconium dioxide housings are light, durable and scratch resistant. These beautiful pieces are the result of our inventive design, superior workmanship, and years of experience in true-to-life audio."
Here's a full rundown of key specs and accessories for the CL2 Planar per RHA:
