Rosson Audio Design was started by Alex Rosson who has been involved in the headphone world (and audio industry) for quite a long time. He was one of the original founders of Audeze and recently launched his new headphone company.
We had the chance to demo his headphones and he invited us out to his visit his lab and check out where the magic happens.
They are currently making 100 unique headphones to start and I snagged pictures of 35-40 of them. He also let Andrew and I do our own molds for a headphone so I am pretty stoked to see how those turned out! We had to catch our flight so we couldn’t see the rest of the process of making the headphones but making the mold was a really cool experience and @andrew has video of me making mine that he will get posted later.
The sound of the headphones themselves are amazing. They are one of the most balanced headphones I have ever heard. They just kind of produce the music in a way that feels natural. We tried it unbalanced with the Cayin N8 Brass/Black as well as balanced with a Cavalli amp (I don’t recall if it was Liquid Gold or Liquid Crimson) and that balanced connection with the RAD headphones is the best I’ve ever heard.
While the tuning will remain the same across the headphones, the level of customization available is amazing. There is no other experience like this when it comes to full-size headphones.
I’m going to continue dumping images into this thread because they are all pieces of art. But they aren’t just pieces of art because they sound incredible too. If these haven’t been on your radar yet then they absolutely should be.
