TEAGUE 20/20 headphones
-The numerical expression ‘twenty-twenty’ represents both perfect vision and the ultimate effective range (Hz/kHz) of the human ear. This convenient nomenclature mirrors the reality that sight and sound are inextricably linked. Teague’s 20/20 concept explores the space where visuals enhance sound.
Tensegrity, a concept brought to the masses by Buckminster R. Fuller, is a structure that balances elements in tensions and compression to provide strength and flexibility. Harmony and tensegrity adhere to the same basic principles: contrasting parts ordered to create a balanced system. The unique demands of audio hardware are a perfect fit for this structure.
