Our crowdfunding campaign is officially live!

by Tomislav Liber

After nearly four years of development, we are thrilled to announce that we are finally making our headphones available to the public, exclusively on Crowd Supply. Neither our pre-built headphones nor our DIY kits are like anything else on the market. We are aiming to revolutionize the concept of modular headphones by using the best materials available to manufacture affordable products with a high level of quality—both sound quality and build quality.

Excited about the idea of assembling your own DIY headphones? Scouring the Earth for a worthy addition to your collection? Either way, our line of products has you covered. With a unique design—based on state-of-the-art additive-manufacturing technologies that incorporate materials previously unused in the industry—LTA Headphones have a great deal to offer high-end headphone fanatics and DIY enthusiasts alike.

By supporting this campaign, you are not only helping our current models reach the market, you are making it possible for us to develop and deliver new models, several of which are already in development. This is a one-person project, and it is very difficult to keep it alive without support and exposure. What we have on offer, at this moment, is a fraction of what is to come. We invite you to become a part of the future of LTA Headphones!

LTA V1 SLS Carbon DIY Kit

Includes unique LTA-designed components unavailable elsewhere.

We will provide documentation to help you paint your LTA Headphones.


$610

LTA V1-R SLS Carbon Headphones (Pre-built)

A fully built and tested LTA V1 headphone, containing all of the components from the DIY kit. The V1-R is a version with the Elleven Acoustica R1 drivers, original L-cushion ear pads and the LTA cable. The R1 drivers are a perfect choice for those looking for a neutral sound leaning towards an analytical side, with a focus on delivering the highest possible amount of detail and clarity. Headphone parts are meticulously post-processed by hand to one of the offered surface finishing options. Sorry, our pre-built LTA V1-R SLS Carbon Headphones are available to US backers only.


$640

LTA V1-P SLS Carbon Headphones (Pre-built)

A fully built and tested LTA V1 headphone, containing all of the components from the DIY kit. The V1-P is a version with the Elleven Acoustica P1 drivers, original L-cushion ear pads and the LTA cable. The P1 drivers are a perfect choice for those looking for a neutral sound leaning towards a euphonic side, with a slighlty warmer and fuller sound character than the V1-R. Headphone parts are meticulously post-processed by hand to one of the offered surface finishing options. Sorry, our pre-built LTA V1-P SLS Carbon Headphones are available to US backers only.


$500

LTA V2 SLS Carbon (or CNC Machined) DIY Kit

Includes unique, LTA-designed components unavailable elsewhere. Produced, using state-of-the-art SLS and MJF additive manufacturing technologies, out of the most advanced materials available in the industry. (Also available with CNC Machined components!) A full kit, containing special fasteners required to assemble the headphones, a pair of headphone drivers, appropriate high-quality ear pads, and acoustic treatment accessories. We will provide documentation to help you paint your LTA Headphones if you opt for the unfinished, SLS Carbon components.


$650

LTA V2 SLS Carbon Headphones (Pre-built)

A fully built and tested LTA V2 modular headphone, containing all of the components from the DIY kit, including the removable LTA cable. Hinge yokes, frames and headband pieces are meticulously post-processed by hand to one of the surface finishing options available. In addition to that, these components are entirely compatible with all future updates the V2 platform will receive, as well as with the V3 platform, enabling V2 owners to build the V3 model in the future for a considerably smaller investment by reusing more than half of the headphone components. Sorry, our pre-built LTA V2 SLS Carbon Headphones are available to US backers only.


$875

LTA V2 CNC Machined Headphones (Pre-built)

The ultimate version of the LTA V2 modular headphones, containing CNC-machined aluminium components in combination with state-of-the-art, additively manufactured components reinforced with carbon fiber. Designed to showcase materials and build quality that rival considerably more expensive headphones, this model features CNC-machined sliders and ear-cup grills with a satin, brushed finish and an engraved LTA logo. It also includes anodized headband slider sockets and hinge yokes. All CNC-machined components except for the ear-cup grills will be compatible with subsequent LTA Headphones designs, such as the work-in-progress LTA V3. Sorry, our pre-built LTA V2 CNC Machined Headphones are available to US backers only.
