What is WARP Technology?

"WARP (patent pending)" is an abbreviation of "Wide Area ReProduction." This is an acoustic circuit for earphones developed by Artio. It mixes L channel and R channel signals, which bandwidths and levels are adjusted, into the opposite channels. By doing so, they virtually reproduce a state of listening to the stereo playback with speakers, and you can feel the spacious sound that was not possible with conventional canal type earphones.

WARP technology revolutionize in-head localizing sound image that conventional ear phones have, and reproduce extensive speaker like sound ambiance. Furthermore, with a combination of Artio's unique patented technologies SkIS and s.n.a system, which are in charge of fine adjustment from high to low frequency, they accelerate an immersive listening experience.

What is SkIS Technology?

"SkIS" is an abbreviation of "Six Kilohertz Intercept System" (patent number: 5696249).

SkIS is designed to suppress the sound around 6kHz, which tends to make unpleasant noises when wearing inner ear headphones. The volume of the back side of the diaphragm, the diaphragm air hole, and the volume of the driver cap makes this uniquely designed acoustic structure possible.
Normally, the air behind the diaphragm works like a spring to support vibration of the diaphragm. But with SkIS, it restricts the movement of the air behind the diaphragm in 6 kHz range. By doing so, SkIS enables to suppress only the 6 kHz tone range without affecting other tone ranges.

What is s.n.a Technology?

"s.n.a" is an abbreviation of "Smart Nozzle Adjuster."

s.n.a is an acoustic structure which enables minor adjustments at the final manufacturing process by fixing an adjustment mechanism inside the nozzle, which could not be done in the past. This balances out the sound gap between left and right ears and creates a more precise sound.
