LZR Technology

LZR future technology for headphones

Listening – redefined from the very beginning: The world's first headphone drivers that have been developed using state of the art laser measuring systems! Conventional acoustic testing methods fall well short of the precision and depth offered by the renowned Klippel system. The extremely high level of accuracy offered by the laser ensures effective optimisation of the drive system, particularly in the low-level frequency range, thereby ensuring a listening experience that is like no other: Enhanced dynamics! Reduced distortion factor! Higher resilience! "Magnat sounds better" – experience a new listening dimension!

LaZeR-sharp measuring technology

At the heart

... of the LZR measuring technique is the Klippel measuring system. This utilises a laser beam in a specially designed vacuum chamber. The laser measuring technique significantly enhances the precision & accuracy of the measurements in comparison to conventional methods. It enables the fundamental aspects of the chassis to be analysed, with the slightest discrepancies being brought immediately to light.

This makes it

... possible to address any weak spots directly, thereby ensuring targeted optimisation of the driver. In terms of acoustic measurements, a classic artificial head microphone is used. A cutting-edge ear&cheek simulator, which accurately forms the anatomy of the human ear, is also used to produce extremely realistic measurement results.

The Laser Tech Driver

The transfer of technology

... between our speakers and the new LZR headphones is Magnat's responsibility as the hifi specialist. Our best speaker technology is now used by the LZR headphones, albeit on a greatly reduced scale. Directly implemented: Unwanted sound reflections within the driver are minimised thanks to an acoustic foam damping element that is centrally mounted behind the cone.

The Metal Core Technology

... in the LZR 980 & LZR 760/765 stabilises the delicate cone. A ring-shaped titanium coating is applied to the most sensitive areas. "Laser Tech Driver" – the basis for the LZR technology also ensures the deepest bass lines and brilliant treble frequencies are produced by the LZR 580.

High quality. Functional. Sophisticated.

Practicality Quality Comfort

These are three essential properties for a successful product. We have perfected the product's ergonomics through practical case studies. Memory foam in the ear cups enables the headphones to adapt to any individual head shape. This results in an optimum fit and precisely defined contact pressure.

Long-term comfort

... is also ensured thanks to the Air-Tech ventilation system! Breathable materials and ventilation openings in the ear cups mean you will be able to keep a cool head at all times. The patented headband and hinge system means all LZR headphones can be folded and transported easily. The corresponding carry case allows the headphones to be transported safely and without any problems - while also offering space for cables and accessories.

High performance cables

An audiophile performance

... through holistic perfection! The consequence of having an experienced manufacturer that doesn't lose sight of any detail comes to the fore here. Signal losses during transmission are experienced by even the best driver technology. Our way of combating this is to develop the optimum cable for each model in our headphones series.

High purity OFC copper

... inner conductors ensure excellent, lossless signal transfer and high durability. Individually designed connectors are gold-plated for perfect contact reliability. All transitions to connectors and remotes are strain-relieved, meaning cable breaks are not an issue. All of the cables can naturally be removed and replaced easily without any problems.

LZR quality

Technological excellence

... especially when it comes to material selection and build quality! Elements that are subjected to high mechanical stress are constructed of metal. Plastics and coatings exhibit a specifically defined degree of flexibility. The LZR headphones are more than adequate for the high demands of everyday urban life - in typical Magnat quality. What is equally important is the visual appearance & feel of the product.

Selected materials

... ensure maximum comfort. The LZR 980 has been equipped with breathable LZR-Pro fabric. In terms of colour fastness, skin-friendliness, UV-resistance and abrasion resistance, this material is the benchmark for future product generations. The elegant LZR 765 is finished with a stylish combination of leather and metal.

No less elegant

.. .is the LZR 760, which features a leather & black and white rubber paint finish. The LZR 580 is road tested, stylish and sturdy with its break-resistant plastic. Visual highlights of all LZR components include an exquisitely processed high gloss finish – soft-touch surfaces – brushed and matt metal elements.
