Immerse Yourself in the Exquisite Beauty and Rich Sound of the ATH-AWKG: Black Persimmon Wood Headphones

The Kurogaki-Ki Series of the “鳴神 NARUKAMI” project has received an enthusiastic response after launching the HPA-KG NARU headphone amplifier/preamplifier and AW-KG NARU headphones. In response to the expectations of audiophiles, we have now launched ATH-AWKG as a standalone pair of KUROGAKI headphones, to allow more people to experience the unique beauty of KUROGAKI wood.

KUROGAKI refers to persimmon wood that exhibits internal, black ink-like patterns. The reason these naturally distinct black patterns form remains elusive to this day. They can only be found in ancient trees that are over a hundred years old. Due to its mystique and Zen-like patterns, KUROGAKI has been cherished by nobles and literati throughout history.

The ATH-AWKG’s KUROGAKI wood housing possesses unique physical properties that contribute to exceptional sound quality. The lacquer finish, applied by hand by a skilled craftsman, brings out the natural beauty of the wood’s grain—a beauty that will only deepen with age.

The headphones are equipped with exclusive 53 mm drivers featuring highly efficient German Permendur magnetic circuitry, which enables the delivery of exceptionally accurate audio with an expansive sound field. Each driver is equipped with a lightweight, durable titanium flange and a 6N-OFC (high-purity, oxygen-free copper) voice coil to ensure precise diaphragm movement and optimal signal transfer. Our exclusive D.A.D.S. (Double Air Damping System), which divides the housing structure into two separate acoustic chambers, provides smooth, accurate bass response.

The headphones are also equipped with A2DC (Audio Designed Detachable Coaxial) jacks for secure connection to the two included 3.0 m (9.8') detachable cables. One cable is fitted with a 6.3 mm (1/4") gold-plated stereo plug for use with standard audio equipment. The other cable features a 4-pin XLR-M balanced connector for use with the latest high-fidelity equipment, delivering improved channel separation for an enhanced audio experience.

The arms that secure the housings are constructed from a lightweight, highly rigid magnesium alloy. The arms are angled to ensure the best possible fit with an excellent earcup seal. Comfort is further enhanced by the smooth, durable sheepskin earpads and headband.

This product is accompanied by an exquisitely designed storage box adorned with KUROGAKI wood, achieving perfect harmony with the headphones themselves.
