Reference Over-Ear headphones use patented Klipsch Balanced Dynamic (KBD) driver technology which puts you closer to the music by equalizing the weight of the driver’s diaphragm. KBD driver technology significantly improves sound by reducing the driver’s intermodulation distortion (IMD) by removing lead wires from the diaphragm. Distortion reduces clarity and changes the original sound to make it unnatural. The difference is noticeable as bass becomes fluid and connected to the midrange and high frequencies without becoming bloated or disconnected. The improved dynamics create a soundstage and presence only heard in Klipsch’s legendary speakers.
