Crosszone’s new CZ-8A is a unique headphone that achieves the External Sound Localization effect with an original technology. Different from conventional headphones that have a problem known as internal sound localization (in which the sound sources seems to be located inside the head), the CZ-8A uses Acoustic Resonance Technology (ART) and Acoustic Delay Chambers (ADC) to achieve this natural and spatial sound field. It simulates the experience and sound pathway listening with stereo speakers.
CZ- 8A continues to optimize ART (Acoustic Resonance Technology) and focuses on wave front control that minimizes the influence of differing ear shape to sound, further enhancing the external sound localization effect. The sounds emitted from speakers spread out as spherical wave fronts at first and gradually become planar as it gets closer to the listener. These plane wave fronts allow us to determine the direction and distance of sound.
However, with headphones, the sound source is very close and reaches the ear in the form of spherical wave fronts. In the CZ-8A, a wave front control guide is devised using the principle of acoustic lens, which delays the sounds and adjusts the wave front reaching the ear. The external sound localization presents an even more natural sound field and sound image.CZ-8A ear pads are 3D designed – with different thickness front and back. Coupled with the curvature on the baffle close to the ear, the ear pads fit comfortably to the head without discomfort, leading also to a stable reproduction of low-frequency sounds.
