E3 is the revolutionary new closed-back headphone from Dan Clark Audio.

Featuring a striking black + blue aesthetic, ergonomic shape, and Gorilla Glass clad cups, E3 combines meticulous tuning and state of the art engineering to achieve DCA's legendary open-back listening experience in a closed headphone.

Meticulous tuning and engineering integrate their patent-pending Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System (AMTS) with an all-new 5th generation driver to achieve a listening experience that is not only incredibly musically accurate, but also astoundingly fun.

E3 delivers the kick of a mule when called upon to rock, yet teases out the finest nuances of your most detailed recordings.

Naturally, E3 is as comfortable as all other DCA headphones, the signature self-adjusting headband and ergonomics simply make extended listening a joy. By unleashing top-of-the-line sound and comfort at midrange prices, DCA has set a new standard in headphone value, making E3 one of their most exciting projects to-date.

A critical feature of E3 is the enhanced AMTS tuning system, previously found only in DCA's TOTL multi- award winning Stealth, Expanse, and Corina headphones. E3 not only brings this ground-breaking technology to a more affordable headphone, it does so with a new mode of implementation.

All headphones are subject to high-frequency standing waves which can make treble sound harsh, fatiguing, or synthetic. AMTS is a patent pending inline device placed between the transducer and ear that integrates waveguides, diffusion control, and resonators into one compact structure that eliminates standing waves while giving the headphone complete control of the high-frequency response profile.

Yet another DCA innovation for E3 is the Dual-Mode Bass Port. While not unusual to find a bass port on a closed headphone, this version delivers unrivalled control of the bass frequency response, creating a superbly balanced, impactful bass experience that is full of power yet free of bloat or midrange creep.

Equally satisfying with all genres of music, E3's soundstage, punchy bass, silky midrange, utterly smooth highs, and layers of detail will keep you engaged for days on end.
