The pursuit of pure sound

Frustrated by distortion in conventional loudspeakers and united in their belief that there was a better way to reproduce sound, Mike Palmer and Dave Palmer, Kiwi brothers, audio engineers and accomplished classical musicians, begin their unwavering quest to attain pure sound reproduction.

Fast forward to the present day, the Palmers’ pioneering work in zero-resonance rotational loudspeaker technology culminates in the acousticWing® – the world’s purest sounding loudspeaker driver. It represents a completely new way to generate sound, free from detectable resonance-distortion.

World first

Following more than a decade researching existing audio technologies, and developing literally hundreds of their own prototypes, the Palmer brothers begin to accelerate the Wing technology beyond the limitations of existing audio transducer technology.

Development is completed of the first generation acousticWing® – the world’s first audio transducer free of detectable resonance-distortion. It is deployed into a set of prototype headphones. To this day these headphones are described by acoustic engineers, music producers and audio reviewers as the world’s best sounding headphones.

Demonstrating to the world

Wing is invited to exhibit and lecture at the 2018 High-End Audio Convention in Munich, the world’s largest audio show, as a free participant based on ‘new innovation in the audio field and real world-firsts.

The company reveals new prototypes: Two new pairs of headphones, in ‘open’ and ‘closed’ configurations, stun with their unrivaled sound purity and bass extension delivered via full-range acousticWing® drivers. These drivers exhibit ZERO detectable resonance-distortion over immense bandwidths, the likes of which have never been seen before, and to facilitate bass extension, a fundamental diaphragm resonance frequency at an incredible 30Hz – an octave lower than any other headphone exhibiting.

Wing also reveals a pair of prototype loudspeaker monitors. The company subsequently demonstrates these monitors to music engineers at the eminent Abbey Road Studios in London and famed Roundhead Recording Studios in Auckland, again astonishing their audience.

Debut stuns in Melbourne

Wing debuts the Zerø passive mini speakers at the 2019 StereoNet Melbourne Hifi Show. Many claim the Zerøs to be ‘the stand-out of the show’ with some visitors returning multiple times to compare the compact Zerøs to other loudspeakers on show.

“I’ve never seen anything like the driver Wing Acoustics have developed, how it actually makes sound is nothing short of a miracle. How does it make that beautiful sound?”

“Music producers will demand these as their studio monitors to mix on.”

“Insanely impressive new speaker driver – why would anyone want to buy large speakers when you can have these?”

“These were very near the top of the highlights for me at the show and were really only topped by some insane esoteric stuff. For stuff that “normal” people could buy these guys were miles ahead of anything else I heard.”

Wing Zerø speakers achieve multiple 5-star reviews

With the goal of achieving world-leading sound quality, in the toughest audiophile category, from a passive speaker no taller than a wine glass, Wing’s MVP Zero passive speakers achieve multiple 5-star reviews on thier first release during 2021.
One experienced audio distributor describes the Zeros as  “The finest, most accomplished mini monitors on the planet.”
