There’s something undeniably magic about electrostatics. Whether it’s loudspeakers or headphones,
their ability to resolve inner detail, to reproduce music with immediacy, transparency, and focus is
unparalleled. Utilizing an almost massless thin film membrane, they have long been regarded as the
Holy Grail, and what they do as magic.
ENIGMAcoustics came into existence with that belief. And as a company devoted to electrostatic
design, we made a statement right out of the gate with our groundbreaking Sopranino electrostatic
super tweeter. Its design, built around our patented SBESL™ (self-biased electrostatic) technology,
eliminates the need for an external AC connection to provide a polarizing voltage.
This patented SBESL™ technology is implemented now—as a miniaturized work of art—in the Dharma
D1000 Hybrid Electrostatic Stereo Headphone. The result, not unexpectedly, is high frequency response
that extends to 50 KHz, and sweet, nuanced, sound that will take your breath away. Augmenting the
electrostatic HF element for lower frequencies is a 50mm Wagami paper based dynamic driver, which
provides not only bass extension to 15 HZ, but palpably impactful mid bass as well. It transitions
seamlessly to Dharma D1000’s electrostatic tweeter with a phase coherent first order slope.
At 380 grams, Dharma D1000 is comfortable. It is also an ergonomic and stylish design featuring a highgrade
aluminum alloy housing and sound that will envelope the listener in nothing less than electrostatic
