HOW WE CREATED THE REBELLION

All headphone manufacturers focus on improving sound quality, constantly trying to push the envelope to create richer audio. But they overlook key differences between the sound you get in a lab and how we experience the world. 

As humans, we experience the world in three dimensions - that includes visually as well as auditorily. Exciting developments in technology are bringing us virtual reality and 3D movies. But headphones are conspicuously absent from these developments. 

Until now. 

At CAPE , we wondered why noise-canceling headphones weren’t equipped to produce three-dimensional sound. What better atmosphere to create a 3D soundscape than one in which you’ve eliminated distraction from background noise? 

That’s when the Rebellion was born. The implementations are as follows:


 
 

3D CONCERT EFFECTS

 
 

 

        Why just listen to headphones when you can listen to your favorite artist in a colossal concert hall? Rebellion headphones use an embedded 3D Digital Signal Processor chip and advanced reverberation algorithms to boost the soundstage of the audio, swelling the presence of the sound to feel as though it’s being played back in a concert hall. Where most headphones sound flat or tinny, our headphones use 3D DSP to emulate the spatial dynamics of sound being produced with a vastly more powerful presence.

 


convert audio from 2d to personalized 3d

 

Rebellion headphones will ship with a companion app designed by world-class specialists in 3D soundstage interaction to enrich your music so you can experience it in a whole new way. We put our full arsenal of 3D Audio Technology and HRTF (head-related transfer function) algorithms at our specialists’ disposal, and the result was a program that can convert 2D audio into 360°, top-down, and spherical 3D Surround Sound effects so rich you can only grasp them by experiencing them for yourself.

3D ACOUSTIC CHAMBER DESIGN

Rather than creating a typical, flat headphone, we realized that in order to create something truly extraordinary, we’d need to take human ergonomics into account. So we built the Rebellion with angled speakers and our trademark honeycomb design to decrease distortion of the mids and highs, all while enlarging and enriching the soundstage.

 

Honeycomb Acoustic Chamber

With the unique honeycomb design of the acoustic chamber, we’ve dramatically reduced the distortion caused by standing sound waves and further removed ambient noise.

Angled Speaker Design

After experimenting with different speaker designers, our team of some of China's finest engineers suggested that we try a radically different approach. The new design features an angled speaker, slightly parallel to the listener's auricular surface. The result was incredible. Clear, beautiful sound, with diminished distortion in the high and mid frequency range, and an even broader horizontal soundstage.

WITH ADAPTIVE NOISE Canceling

 
 

    Traditional ANC headphones broadcast muted tones throughout to produce a “white noise” that mask background sounds, but the result is that you’re hearing a different kind of noise pollution. The Rebellion uses its digital signal processor (DSP) to monitor background noise in real time, and adjust its output to attenuate background noise with the existing soundwaves of your music. So instead of using an external or unnatural frequency, it uses the soundwaves of your music wherever possible to counteract competing background sounds on the fly. The result is noise control that doesn’t compromise your music.


COMFORT WITHOUT COMPROMISE

EVEN THE HEADBAND IS SPECIALLY TUNED. WE METICULOUSLY ADJUSTED THE CLAMPING FORCE TO 3.0n TO WITHIN 0.2n FOR OPTIMAL COMFORT ALL DAY LONG.e

Rebellions use paired speakers with a max differentiation of 2dB, hand-picked by craftsmen and audio experts to deliver outstanding ANC.

Power Purification Technology, background noise clean

Thermal design

Almost every ANC headphone uses some degree of soundproofing in their shape to physically block audio waves from the user's ear. But more often than not, the result is an ANC headphone that’s uncomfortable to wear. With Rebellion, we set out to fix that.The result is a headphone that offers both superior comfort and superior noise insulation, so you can wear them all day without compromising on the ability to block out background sounds.


Digital Audio Reproductions & HIFI Sound

 
 

        ANC headphones don’t need to compromise on audio quality. Rebellion headphones use the latest Digital Signal Processor technology, audio codecs, and drivers to bring you the best audio quality you’ve ever heard from a wireless headphone. To round out the uncompromising audio quality we strived for with every part of Rebellion, we retained a master audio technician to specially tune the Voice Coil Stability System, which deviates from typical coil arrangements by essentially buffering the voice coil from incidental vibrations resonating against the inside of the speakers and further removing distortion.
