Take a Look Inside Our NEW Chambers
Our chambers themselves are amazingly complex pieces of precision wood turning as you can see from the inside view. Let’s look at what’s new.
We have added more internal volume to our new Chambers without greatly increasing size or weight. The internal chamber dimensions are carefully tuned to sound great with your Fostex or Denon, enhancing their overall acoustic properties.
We are now employing a new damping compound inside our cups, the latest in materials science, vastly superior to the commercial products used in the past. No more metal foil backing, so there’s no chance for internal reflections.
We also replace the commercial batting material Fostex uses inside their cups with our own purpose-
Immaculate Lacquer Finish. No Dyes or Stains!
We never cheat by staining or dyeing our woods to enhance second-
Lawton Audio Headphone Chambers: Cups Matter!
At Lawton Audio, we know that every part of your headphone adds to or impacts its character and performance, even if the manufacturers don’t. When you approach the humble headphone “cup” seriously as a critical component, as we do, you quickly see that it actually has several key functions.
As you can see, yes indeed, Cups Matter. No one has more innovative, better sounding or looking woodies than Lawton Audio.
We knew we could better tune the chambers for acoustic qualities, so we set about completely re-
You can think of what we do at Lawton Audio as being roughly analogous to taking a superb commercial loudspeaker driver array, totally re-

Bigger, Better Images On A Larger Soundstage
Customers frequently find our cups make their Fostex sound more spacious, with a larger soundstage, for a more “out of head” listening experience. Add a pair of our exclusive Angle Pads and really see the music happening on a scale that may just surprise you from a set of headphones!
Chamber Music. Chamber Magic!
Simply put, our Chambers make beautiful music with your Fostex. Chamber Music, you might say. Amazing as they look, our #1 priority has always been the sweet sound they help your Fostex make. We know wood and we have a pair for you; we’re always happy to help you select the right pair for your Fostex.
The Alchemy of Wood. The Magic of Mother Nature’s ToneWoods
Your ability to select the ideal wood for your Custom Chambers lets you enjoy an entirely new kind of enhancement for your personal listening pleasure. Different woods imbue their own subtle nuances to the overall musical presentation or “feel” of your headphones; just as different woods do when used to make the same musical instrument. Luthiers, or musical instrument makers, have long identified those wood species that produce the most desirable timbres. These are known as “ToneWoods”.
All of our Lawton Audio Chambers are made from these illustrious ToneWoods, selected from the highest grades available, heavily seasoned and stable for years, a process that adds to the consistency of tone and overall performance. In short, we consider your cups the same way a luthier approaches making the body of a fine musical instrument.
Now you can listen to the same wood you like to play. Our Custom Wood Chambers are a highly musical addition for these phones. You know which wood produces the sound you like; now you can select your favorite flavor for your Fostex. The accuracy of your Fostex with the tone of your favorite guitar. Sound good?
Timber Timbres. What’s Your Flavor? The ToneWheel Knows.
You don’t have to know anything about wood or understand technical audiophile jargon to quickly and easily determine which pair of cups is right for you. Click HERE to see how our innovative new ToneWheel Wood Selector makes it fun and easy.
Choosing Your Wood: Introducing the Lawton Audio ToneWheel
To help you make the best possible selection for your Custom Chambers, we’ve created our cool new ToneWheel. Each wood species brings its own special tonal character to your phones. With so many woods, we are guaranteed to have something that meets both your aesthetic and sonic desires. So how will you ever decide?
