CARBON DOME TWEETERS
Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for the 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminium double dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail.
BIOMETRIC SUSPENSION
Sometimes, making a big difference takes unconventional thinking. The transition from our famous yellow Aramid Fibre midrange cones to our Continuum cone technology resulted in a massive improvement to midrange performance. Now, we’ve turned our attention to another crucial element in a loudspeaker cone: the fabric spider. The new Biomimetic Suspension revolutionises midrange cone performance by greatly reducing the unwanted air pressure and coloration that a conventional fabric spider can generate. The result? Midrange transparency you wouldn’t believe possible.
CONTINUUM CONE
Thanks to its composite construction, the Continuum™ cone avoids the abrupt transitions in behaviour that can impair the performance of a conventional drive unit. The result is a more open, neutral performance that delivers voices and instruments with precision and transparency.
AEROFOIL PROFILE BASS CONE
Developed using advanced computer modelling techniques, the Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has variable thickness, providing stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most. The result: deep and dynamic bass.
CURVED BAFFLE
The new 700 Series features a curved front baffle for the first time. This allows the midrange and bass drivers to be located in individual pod-type housings that sit proud of the speaker baffle. When combined with the curvature of the structure, this new approach – derived from the 800 Series Diamond – reduces the audible impact of the cabinet, creating a cleaner, more open and more immersive sound.

Great service, products looks new and sounds great.

B Stock looks like new to me. I'm happy with the product. I would give 5 stars if the shipping was not delay twice. It was from the shipper but no response from the seller. The package is quite risky. Large box with foam containing 2 speakers but it was placed in the corner of the box instead of the center. It was filled with soft bubbles wrap on 2 sides instead of all sides. The foam divider in between 2 speakers were slipped out and one speaker was angled. The top of the speaker was touching. Luckily it was wrapped by a thin white foam wrap. I was worried but after I checked I found no damage. I just wish the package is better so the boxing experienced could be better and worried free. I will buy from Listen Up again. Overall they are great.
