Rock Jaw Sentio – most unusual full-size headphones
Developers from English startup Rock Jaw recently presented headphones Sention (from lat – feel, perceive with the senses), which will be the first model in the world, which allows to switch from an open to a closed type of headphones.
Originally these headphones were developed for gaming sessions, during which the headphones are able to show the full potential. The idea was interesting and Rock Jaw started collecting funds for the project on Kickstarter – campaign will last until March 3, 2016.
“Open” and “Closed” modes in Rock Jaw Sentio
Joe Watts, the founder of the Rock Jaw, recognizes that open headphones can offer excellent sound quality, but they are not always suitable for use on the move. For this reason, switching to the closed mode will ensure complete noise isolation. For this purpose, on both of headphone’s cups there are plates, which slightly remind gears with the four holes in the middle. Holes in the “Open” mode create an acoustic transparency, thus increasing possibilities of sound. When rotating the gear, the plate closes the grille isolating the user’s ears from ambient noise.
Inside Sentio the developers have placed two speakers on each output, 30mm speaker is responsible for the high frequency and 50mm speaker for low frequency sound. The model, according to developers, will play a strong, punchy bass and show clean treble. All of that in the range of 19 to 21,000 Hz.
Headphone’s body is made of stainless steel and aluminum, and the top headband part has a lightweight structure, just like open headphones. Total weight of the Sentio headphones – 340 grams. You can also order additional options such as microphone that connects to the right cup, Xbox/PS4 adapter and velour ear pads.
- Emitters:dual dynamic 30 mm + 50 mm
- Sensitivity:110 ± 3 dB
- Frequency range:19 Hz – Hz 21 000
While Rock Jaw expects to achieve the goal of £65,000, anyone can now pre-order Sentio for £130, and for an additional set of options you will have to add more £35.
