Our Take
OK, bud. We got something unique here. An actual true leap of innovation. The SR1a is like nothing else you've ever seen or heard. If you live in the Philly/NJ/DE area...you NEED to schedule an audition with us. Words cannot do it justice. Pair the SR1a with your fave speaker amp (100W+ loudspeaker amp required) and get ready for nirvana.

From RAAL-requisite

The SR1a by RAAL-requisite is the world's first Earfield™ headphone monitor. Experience mixing, mastering, and home listening with unparalleled accuracy and realism in a soundfield devoid of room acoustics and comb-filtering caused by work surface reflections. Earfield™ technology delivers unheard of program accuracy and a speaker-like soundfield experience.

Ribbons for a Reason

The SR1a is the world’s first True-Ribbon™ headphone. Highly specialized ribbon drivers were developed that reproduce 30Hz to 30kHz bandwidth in order to eliminate the need for sealed chambered bass and allow for open air baffles (both front and back) for a true full-frequency soundfield.

SR1a Freedom

Professional engineers report that SR1a Earfield Monitors™ reveal more detail and accuracy than even their finest traditional studio monitors or headphones. Helping to achieve high-quality, transferable mix results in non-traditional environments. The accuracy, musicality and portability of the SR1a frees the engineer to work whenever, and wherever they choose.

RAAL-requisite SR1a

SR1a headphones can be worn comfortably for many hours at any listening level.

Simply Incredible

These headphones are incredibly revealing. It is, literally, as if a veil has been lifted away from the music. The music is amazingly rich and textured. People complain about the lack of bass and at first I agreed that it was bass light (like the Stax). But after making some changes to my preamp (ZMF Pendant SE) I was amazed to find that these headphones are capable of very respectable bass. The headphones are very comfortable to wear but do not tolerate a lot of moving around. They are now all I want to listen to and I have LCD-X and Stax L-700 mk2 (among others) in my collection.

It was great to find them as an open box from Bloom Audio and Bloom was great answering all of my questions. I would definitely buy from Bloom again! Awesome experience all around!
