The Radiante is the result of twenty years of studies dedicated to music reproduction in which we have concentrated the manufacturing excellence of “Made in Italy”. When you listen to music with a Spirit Torino headphone you will hear a lively, passionate and refined sound …. the sound of Italy.

Born to Satisfy Musicians

The Radiante is the first closed-back headphone of Spirit Torino, and represents an innovation in the world of high-end headphones.

We have concentrated in this headphone years of experience by rethinking the concept of a closed-back headphone from scratch.

The main feature of a closed-back, the isolation from and to the outside world, is what makes the design so much more complex.

All a Game of Pressures

The passive radiator allows the headphone to simulate a larger load volume and to optimize the drive movement, ensuring a low-frequency response which typical of Spirit Torino headphones.

The Radiante provides fast, powerful and controlled bass like no other closed-back headphone does.

Many Headphones, One Heart

The Radiante shares with the entire Spirit Torino range the same motor, built to our specifications by drive wizard Jaco Burger, as well as the same degree of factory tuning, including the insertion of damping material, additional magnets and ventilation holes as provided by the design.

Top Notch Comfort & Sound Isolation

In this headphone we have implemented specific technical solutions to avoid the common downsides of closed-back headphones:

  • External pressure compensation holes with sound insulation to avoid pressure on the eardrum and the related “hollow” effect.
  • Ear pads made in collaboration with Dekoni which provide the finest leather on the outside and perforated leather on the inside to optimize the acoustics of the chamber while the Alcantara® guarantees breathability and hygiene on the skin.
  • The forward-bent configuration of the earpad has the double purpose of better adapting the headphone to the ear and the head and projecting the soundstage frontally.
  • Headbands made of very finest leathers with anatomic padding.

Tuned by Sound Craftsmen

Tuning in such a complex project is fundamental for the satisfying listening experience of the enthusiast and for a reliable reproduction required by professional.

Over time, we have better understood the importance of the isophonic (Fletcher-Munson or equal sensitivity) curve for the human ear and how to apply it to shape the frequency response of our headphones, in order to preserve the music’s essence.

Through the continuous interaction with musicians and sound engineers, and after a long series of tests, both in the lab as in the field, the Radiante, like all Spirit headphones, has been refined to achieve an extraordinary level of performance, suitable for every use.

A Frame up to Expectations

In the Spirit tradition, the frame is designed so as not to color the music and is entirely made of solid, milled aluminum, internally treated with Dynamat® dampening and other anti-reflective materials to make it unaffected by the vibrations generated by the drive.

Inertial Frame for a Live Dynamic Impact

The weight of a Spirit headset is carefully calibrated to form the so-called inertial frame system, which is a frame that supports with its mass the dynamic pulse generated by the drive’s piston-like movement, without any significant recoil, thus preserving the dynamic efficiency of the headphone for a live feeling.

Connection Versatility

The Radiante is aimed at a demanding public that will use the headphones with high-performance devices, we have therefore foreseen connections for devices with multiple standards. The following are the available terminations at the customer’s choice:

  • 3.5mm
  • 6.3mm TRS
  • 2.5mm TRRS (Balanced)
  • 4.4mm Pentaconn (Balanced)
  • 4-pin XLR (Balanced)

Spirit Radiante cable connectors

A Portentous Cable

The Radiante is standard equipped with a high-performance cable developed in collaboration with prestigious cable manufacturer Portento Audio, a truly exceptional original equipment feature.

A Technologically Advanced Earpad

We have developed the Radiante earpads in strict collaboration with Dekoni, the leading headphone earpads manufacturer. Shape, tilt, surface treatment … nothing has been left to chance. But the choice of materials is the real highlight of this project.

  • Very finest leather for the side surfaces, identical to that used for headbands.
  • Alcantara for the part that rests on the ear.

Alcantara, besides being a product of excellence Made in Italy, guarantees an exceptional performance package: you will realize this by wearing the Radiante for several hours.

Packaging

Architect Walter Carzan has designed a Box for Spirit Torino that can embodies the very essence of Andrea Ricci’s projects.

The result is an essential project, which language, made of defined lines and precious materials, holds and protects an instrument that is born as a tribute to music.
