Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

NOTE: If you can't see the embedded video above, please CLICK HERE to see the video.


Having built their business on designing and manufacturing moderately priced high-end headphones, it was only a matter of time before Dan Clark Audio would stage an assault on the higher end of the high-end market. Today's the day that happens, with the launch of the Dan Clark Audio Stealth. Key to the all-new Stealth's sound is a patent pending innovation called AMTS.

Dan Clark (founder and CEO of Dan Clark Audio) visited us at Head-Fi HQ to discuss the Dan Clark Audio Stealth and this very unique thing called AMTS that legendary headphone engineer Axel Grell (who was shown the technology) told me he thinks is "a big step ahead."

Of course, in the video I also talk about the Stealth's sound and take a look at headphone measurements of the Stealth (including headphone measurement comparisons) made in our measurement lab at Head-Fi HQ using the following equipment:

EDIT: ASR measured 23ohm impedence and 549 mV @ 94dBSPL (about 82-83 dB/mW sensitivity)

Jude measured sensitivity at more of 360 mV @ 94dbSPL (1kHZ) which would be more of 87 dB/mW. Much more reasonable. Interested to see which of these ends up being accurate

Totl Closed back = directly to the top of my interest list.

Wonder if DC will be the ones to finally achieve true totl SQ in a closed back. Everything currently is either below totl detail or mega jacked tonality

For the price tag I doubt many will find out.

Hey everyone, thanks for the nice reception! My thanks to everyone who has supported us, we love what we do and you make it possible!

We had our 9th anniversary this spring, and we wanted Stealth to be the embodiment of everything we've learned over the years as our technology and skills have grown.

Stealth took four years to develop and a lot of failures and experiments on the way, but we put our hearts into every part of this headphone, and for the first time even the packaging! We really hope you enjoy it.

For your enjoyment here are a few beauty shots (the red in the photos is a bit hot in the strap photos, it's more like the box).
