Audeze Particles - Video - Page 5

post #61 of 116
Personally, I seriously hope Audeze did not deprive themselves from buying a used laser vibrometer for financing this video. Maybe it's because I work in the field and thus fully appreciate how useless this video is (reminds me of slow motion subwoofer for car tuning basshead promotion). But overall, this feels like Boze marketing seriously...

About some animation of driver motion and actual sound wave propagation (rather than just monitoring Newton's law of gravitation and calling that sound particle mimicking wink.gif) (from ~30s in):

I Find this video very cool. Never have seen it. Thanks for the post!

Cool, indeed! It's about 2 weeks I've become an Audeze LCD's owner and I'm still in eargasm! :)

interesting!

Great looking video.  I'm looking forward to receiving my new LCD 3s next week.

It was ok. :/

If they had shown the magnetic field in action, then that might be something cool to watch. But yeah...particles moving from a speaker diaphragm.

 

 

 

this is like a frying pan gone haywire!

Amazing! Great video! smily_headphones1.gif

I'm curious, what music was being played through them when shooting the video?

 

Thanks!

I think it's the background music used in this video. And I think it's kinda synced to it if you pay attention. lol.

     It was NOT intended to.

     It would be interesting to line up side by side:a) Dynamic voice coil driver, b) Planar Magnetic (Orthodynamic) drivers, and c) Electrostatic (non-moving) diaphragm,

     and see the differences in driver movement.

     I totally agree.   Electrostatic > Orthodynamic > Dynamic

     Are you saying that most Head-Fiers are truly abnormal people? ..... (although you may have a point here)

     You really can't be serious! You must have a lower impression of any and all products that utilize advertising gimics to promote their product...how sad.

     This is really what it's all about.  It's not intended to be dissected and analyzed to death.  It's interesting, well filmed and just plain old fun to watch.

That was a cool video.  Its neat to actually see the sound.

post #72 of 116

Very cool

I would be interested in seeing a video like this, either with or without the glass particles, where a sweep was used to show how the driver reacts to difference frequencies. Of course a clock displaying milliseconds would be nice, as would an indicator of what frequency is being played at any given time.

post #74 of 116

To be honest, I just like seeing the diaphram "flex" (like at around :35 seconds); I'd like to see a video without the glass particles.

A laser imaging system could also be used either to view the particles or a flexible reflective coating placed onto the driver.  This image could be viewed on a CCD camera array much like an old COHU 4800.  See Particle Image Velocimetry:

Great idea for the video!
