The Sentios allow you to switch between open or closed-back listening options at the flick of a switch and have also been designed for gaming sessions. Rock Jaw is seeking funding on Kickstarter now.

Rock Jaw recognises that, while open-back headphones can offer superior sound quality, they aren’t always suitable for on-the-go use. So, at the flick of a switch, the Sentios convert to closed back to isolate sound within the ear cups.

The Sentios have two tuned drivers per ear cup, a 30mm driver taking care of high frequencies, and a 50mm the lows. This, Rock Jaw says, allows the headphones to deliver a “tight, punchy bass response that extends well”. 

 

The headphones are made from a combination of stainless steel and aluminium, and come with optional extras such as a microphone, Xbox/PS4 adapter and velour ear pads. 

The Sentios are live on Kickstarter now, where Rock Jaw is seeking £65,000 of funding. You can pre-order a pair from £130, with extras ranging from £8 to £15.

They look heavy and make you like a Cyberman! Like the idea of a switchable open/close back design though. Why haven't other brands tried this yet? Seems a way to get the best of both worlds.
