Voce is Dan Clarks Audio’s flagship electrostatic headphone and perhaps
2018’s most awarded high-end headphone, capturing a majority of “Best
Headphone” and “Product of the Year” accolades in the USA from
preeminent publications such as Positive Feedback, Absolute Sound,
Headfonics and Headphone.guru.
When Dan decided to build an electrostatic headphone he started with a
blank sheet of paper to create a product that improved upon all of the
great attributes of previous electrostatic headphones such as
transparent midrange and detail resolution and added a powerful bass
experience and an expansive soundstage.
Dan and his team went all in for the design of the Voce, reinventing
every aspect from the ultra-large 88mm driver to the fully custom silver
plated cable thye supply with it. They even built an in-house clean
room for production to ensure the highest quality and reliability.
They are justifiably proud of the fact that VOCE has had a service rate of <1%
after almost two years in the field, an unparalleled accomplishment
considering it is their first-electrostatic headphone!
The result was well worth the effort put into the design of the Voce.
Key features include:
88mm driver for extended and rich bass that reaches below 10Hz and a
Advanced metal stators for enhanced resolution
Flexible, microphonic-free round silver-plated copper cable with a solid
machined Teflon connector cased in an aluminum housing
Convenient and attractive walnut storage box with built-in headphone
Durable all metal construction at a featherweight 330gr
Fully dust-sealed drivers
The Voce is a game changer. You owe it to yourself to audition this
Important notes on electrostatic headphones:
Electrostatic headphones must be used with an appropriate electrostatic
amplifier or energizer (energizers connect to the outputs of a
loudspeaker amplifier) to operate.
Many electrostatic headphones make a "zip" sound when the headphone is
put on or removed. This is the sound of the charged driver touching the
stator and due to the electric fields sticking briefly to it before
releasing. Due to VOCE's very large driver size, the driver may be more
prone to this than some other electrostatic headphones. As the stator is
insulated this will not cause damage to the driver and should be
considered normal operation.
