The Stealth Closed Planar Headphones have been announced as the next flagship model by Dan Clark Audio. According to the manufacturer, it took four years to develop them, which resulted in “setting a new standard for sound quality and headphone ergonomics.”

The matte black and red Stealth is crafted from carbon fiber, nickel-plated titanium and aluminum in the cups and hinges, with a leather headband and faux suede ear cushions. The headphones inherits the mechanics of the self-adjusting headband from the Aeon 2 , weighs 415 g and fits into a completely compact case.
