Product Description

Final Audio D8000 Pro Edition headphones retain the delicate sound of the original 8000s but tune it using the Air Film Damping System (AFDS) exclusively for professional use by popular demand of recording engineers who wish to listen at louder sound volumes than consumers.

Pro Edition

The human auditory characteristic by which low frequency range becomes easier to hear as sound volume increases has also been taken into consideration. As a result, in comparison to the D8000 which is suitable particularly for classical music and other selections featuring a wide dynamic range, the D8000 Pro Edition provides sound quality perceived to be of higher clarity when listening to rock, pops and other selections that feature a narrow dynamic range.


D8000 combines the sensitive high ranges of planar magnetic models and the volume and open feel bass tones of dynamic models. With conventional planar magnetic models, amplitude is an increasing low range, and since the diaphragm comes into contact with magnets, it was necessary to raise the frequency of bass to a level that the driver unit can reproduce.

To compensate for lack of bass, the inside of the earpads have been tightly sealed, and the front section of the diaphragm sealed. By sealing the inner earpads, it is possible to produce bass tones across low frequency bands; these become the bass tones produced within a sealed space the same as earphones. Combined with breatheable earpads, bass tone reproduction and open sound only achievable with superior dynamic models is possible.

Ultra light diaphragm

In reproducing subtle high frequencies, the lightweight nature of the diaphragm comes before anything else. Compared to other dynamic models with the same diameter, D8000's diaphragm is 1/3 lighter. A super thin aluminum coil has been etched on the extremely lightweight film diaphragm, and as such, the adhesive essential for use between the coil and the diaphragm of dynamic models - which has a very negative effect on sound quality - is not necessary. With the D8000 Pro Edition, problems originating from the adhesive have been fundamentally resolved, and the reproduction of a delicate sound in high frequency range has been achieved.

Air Film Damping System

With conventional planar magnetic models, amplitude was an increasing low range, and the diaphragm came into contact with magnets. To solve this problem, Final Audio estabished new diaphragm breaking technology known as AFDS - Air Film Damping System. This technology could be considered a reinvention of planar magnetic models.

Machined metal housing

To establish AFDS, an extremely high level of precision compared to typical driver units is necessary. The machined aluminum magnesium alloy housing has been machined with great precision. Black sports a leathercoat finish such as that used for expensive cameras. Silver has been imparted with an Alumite anodized aluminum finish. Two types of detachable cable, OFC black cable (3.5mm/1.5m) and OFC silver coat cable (6.3mm/3m) are included as accessories.

Newly-developed open type earpads

With not only sealed headphones but open-type headphones as well, sealing the earpads makes for a characteristic lengthening of reproduction frequency to bass frequencies that the driver unit originally couldn't reproduce. With all conventional planar magnetic models and many dynamic models, there is a lack in terms of bass frequencies with earpads that are not tightly sealed. For the D8000 Pro Edition, close attention has been paid to good feeling texture and longevity. Toray Ultrasuede has been used for parts that come in contact with the human skin.
