With the Avantone Planar the II, we started with our best and made it better.

The Planar the II represents the sum total of our experience in meeting the demands of music professionals. You’ll hear the air and breath in every vocal, the long decays of shimmering reverb tails, and tight, punchy bass that hits hard without being over-hyped. And thanks to their surprisingly low weight, they’ll stay comfy for long-haul mix sessions.

When the critical details of your music matter most, you and your sounds both deserve the audiophile-grade quality of the Avantone Planar the II. They’re the perfect solution for mix engineers, musicians, podcasters, live-streamers, and hi-fi enthusiasts.

The Avantone planar the II driver difference

The Planar drivers offer an incredible set of advantages over traditional moving coil drivers. Amazing accuracy, high-end detail, clarity, natural bass, and response time.

Traditional moving coil drivers use a magnetic field to push/pull the driver in one direction and rely on the surround’s elasticity to return the driver to the neutral position. Planar drivers utilize a matrix of neodymium magnets that both push and pull from both sides of its incredibly thin, ultralight diaphragm across its entire surface area.

This way, force applied to the diaphragm is distributed in a symmetric fashion, producing a broad wavefront with very little harmonic distortion and incredibly fast response time. And because Planars use front and rear magnets to apply equal force in both directions, you hear a much more natural sound with less distortion.

Headphones for today’s music creator

We didn’t sacrifice the need for comfort when designing Planar the II. They’re even more lightweight than the classic Planar, and cozy ear pads stay comfortable during long-haul mix and listening sessions.

Planar the II employs a perfectly tuned open-back architecture, designed to eliminate the pressure build-up, acoustic resonance, and frequency curve typical of closed-back headphones, further ensuring that your music is represented as accurately as possible.

Avantone’s Planar the II also include a high-grade, removable, 2-meter, noise-free 3.5 mm cable that can be plugged into either side to suit your workflow or handedness. Planar the II also ships in an eco-friendly shoulder bag with room for your accessories — and even a pouch for the cable.

Available in red, black, and creme.


Headphones that meet the modern day demands

Planar might be a bit larger than typical headphones, but that doesn’t change the need for comfort! Planar is perfectly weighted for long-listening sessions, and provides additional comfort with their soft and spacious ear pads. Sessions that last for hours will only feel like minutes when wearing them!

Avantone Planars also include a high-grade, removable 3.5mm cable that can be plugged into either side! Maybe you’re working with a large instrument, or a specific rig that makes the typical “left side cable output” feel awkward; just plug into the right side! The Avantone Planar the II also ships in an eco-friendly shoulder bag with room for your accessories — and even a pouch for it’s included cable.
