Warwick Acoustics first product was the excellent Sonoma One system, its name derived from the DSD recording and mastering workspace initially developed by Sony. Warwick Acoustics created the revolutionary Model One to deliver exceptional reproduction of today’s ever popular High Res audio formats.

Warwick Acoustics was formed by several skilled enthusiasts, including David Kawakami, Gus Skinas, Andrew Demery and David Walstra, who met while working at Sony on DSD and SACD projects. Chief designer, Dan Anagnos works for WAT Ltd.

Their headphone systems are so good due to the exclusive patents held by Warwick Acoustics for their products. Starting with electrostatic panels; this High-Precision Electrostatic Laminate (HPEL) transducer which are constructed in the UK. Their systems differ from conventional thinking in that instead of employing a thin membrane with a conductive layer between the conductive grids, whereas the HPEL uses a thin malleable metalised laminate film for the “front” grid. With HPEL the shape of the insertion crafts eight separate “drum-skin” diaphragms from an individual piece of film while a stainless-steel mesh forms the back grid.

Warwick Acoustics have been able to refine the features of the ‘drum-skins’ to give diverse resonant frequencies. Each cell is acoustically autonomous, but driven in parallel. The sound combines but the liberated resonance average out, evading large resonant peaks in the audio band (as you would be evident with a single driver). The result if these technological advances is that the panels remain linear upto 60kHz, and the panels bring amazing levels of consistency and matching between the transducers, less than 0.8db difference across the channels.

The materials for Warwick Acoustics products are chosen with care and acoustic performance in mind. The M1’s housing, termed “earcups”, are constructed of injected magnesium that is a third lower in weight and features superior sonic characteristics compared to aluminium. The earpads are top-grain Cabretta sheepskin, hand-sewn in Germany, and tanned by Pittards in the UK, which has been tanning leathers since 1826. The headband is made from Nylon 12 (aka Polyamide 12). The Nylon 12 also acts to dampen noise and vibration.

The aim of Warwick Acoustics headphones is “to convey high-res audio in unmatched sound quality and to offer the best in listener comfort.” Their headphones systems take the brand closer to an eventual near-perfect headphone transducer, accomplishing uncoloured and reference-quality audio regardless of the source.

We have a range of closed back design headphones, which offer impressive isolation and passive noise attenuation thanks to the nature of their design keeping the majority of your music in, and most external noise out. These are ideal for personal use, noisy environments and commuting.

Alternatively, open-back headphones are favoured by many due to their spacious and open sound profile, which comes about due to the open nature of their design. Open back headphones are primarily recommended for home use as the open design means sound is leaked, and so they are preferable in quiet environments.

With the popularity of portable music devices, the selection of earphones available has increased dramatically. We offer a range of earphones ranging from budget models designed to offer an improvement over standard giveaway earphones to high-end earphones designed to offer the performance of high-end headphones in a compact and portable package. Many earphones are of the in-ear variety – slotting into the ear canal, and offering excellent isolation and passive noise attenuation, enabling you to listen at quieter volumes and also use your earphones in noisy environments.

We also stock a range of headphone amplifiers, which offer dramatic improvements over the majority of standard headphone amplifiers featured in devices, computers or amplifiers. These amplifiers are designed specifically for use with headphones, and are unrivalled for detail, soundstage and precision when compared to similarly priced integrated solutions. We also stock a range of headphones accessories, ranging from headphones stands to spare earpads and headbands.
