WAT's In A Name?


With its engineering and development centre in Ebbw Vale, Wales, Warwick Audio Technologies is more than just the supplier of the 'High Precision Electrostatic Laminate' drivers used in these headphones. In fact, the entire system is built around its driver/energiser technology, which is delivered as a matched package. As with many audio companies, WAT is a university spin-off, stemming from work on the HPEL technology by Dr Duncan Billson and Prof David Hutchins at the University of Warwick, School of Engineering, and funded by venture capital firms including Mercia Technologies and Finance Wales. As well as Billson and CTO Dan Anagnos, the WAT team includes Sonoma Acoustics CEO Martin Roberts, formerly with NXT, and former Bose Vice President Gary Waters. The company offers its drivers and headphone technology as turnkey solutions for many OEM manufacturers.
