Tidal Force’s Wave 5 headphones gives you a small taste of the magic planar magnetic headphones can deliver.
Tidal Force has joined the ever growing headphone marketplace with the launch of its Wave 5 planar magnetic headphones. Most headphones you are familiar with are driver-based designs, like loudspeakers. Not the Wave 5.
