RHA's CL2 Planar, a Bluetooth-enabled in-ear planar magnetic headphones, is now in Singapore

RHA has just launched the CL2 Planar - in-ear headphones with 10mm planar magnetic drivers

It’s taken them four years, but RHA’s development team has finally succeeded in creating the world’s most compact planar magnetic driver – a 10mm driver used in their newest neckband-style wireless in-ear headphones, the CL2 Planar.

The driver consists of a planar coil and 16µm (micrometer) diaphragm perfectly suspended over two matched magnetic fields, allowing it fast response and greater accuracy. Taking inspiration from the aerospace and fine jewelry industries, the driver is surrounded by injection molded Zirconium dioxide housing, making it highly resistant to scratches and offering an uninterrupted flow of audio from the driver to your ears.

The CL2 Planar will come with a selection of cables to best match your listening style. There’s a braided oxygen-free copper cable with 3.5mm connector, a silver-coated balanced Ag4x cable that ends in a 2.5mm connection, and a Bluetooth neckband that offers up to 12 hours of wireless listening and offers aptX streaming and MMCX connections. You’ll also get a whole selection of replaceable ear tips to help you get a perfect fit, and of course, a handy carrying case.

With the CL2 Planar, you can go from wired to wireless right out of the box.

The CL2 Planar is available now at a recommended retail price of S$1,588 (including GST) at authorized retailers.

From 22nd to 25th November 2018, you can also purchase CL2 Planar at an exclusive promotional price of S$1,428 at the Portable Audio Zone in Sitex 2018 (Booth 5D01C, Hall 5, Singapore Expo).
