fo.Q DS-25E Remaster Rings

fo.Q DS-25E Remaster Rings

This product is an audio quality-improving seal for optical discs, utilizing an organic polymer hybrid damping material with the highest level of vibration-absorption performance.

Simply apply the 0.3-mm thick ring-shaped seal to the center of a CD, DVD, or other optical disc to absorb the minute levels of unnecessary vibration generated during playback with amazing efficiency, and greatly attenuate the physical and electrical noise caused by this vibration. This makes the sonority, spread, thickness, and subtlety of the sound extremely true to life, dramatically improving the ability to reproduce the original sound.
Additionally, the center (remaining) portion of the ring-shaped seal can be used to remove remaining adhesive, or to tune the device.

The number of DS-25 rings has been increased from 11 to 18, thus reducing the unit cost.
Not only that, but further advancements have enhanced the sound quality and enabled a higher level of fidelity.


Be careful not to cut yourself with the plastic spatula when removing it from the case or using it to peel off or apply the seal.

When removing the seal from a disc, be sure to completely remove any remaining adhesive. If adhesive from the seal remains on the disc, then the audio device could become damaged the next time the disc is played.

When removing adhesive from a disc, you can use the remaining center portion from the seal ring. Press the adhesive portion of the seal to the disc several times; this will cleanly remove the adhesive.

Peel off the seal by using the plastic spatula.

Put the seal on the center of the case with the adhesive face of the seal upturned.

Put the disc on the case with the label side downward, and firmly press to seal.

Why do fo.Q products improve the sound?

This is because new materials that are used are designed for use in audio applications. fo.Q products offer three significant features, described below.

Feature 1
The vibration-damping materials used in fo.Q products have been newly developed. First, they convert vibrations into electrical energy, and then they turn the resulting current into heat. This absorbs vibrations extremely effectively. As a result, these materials offer outstanding performance compared to conventional damping materials and vibration-suppressing materials such as rubber and heavy metals. When used in audio equipment, they are far more effective at adjusting sound quality than anything available to date.

Feature 2
fo.Q products don't produce the characteristic sound that conventional damping and vibration-suppressing materials would generate. Rubber and heavy metals don’t completely absorb vibration, and the remaining energy creates other vibrations, which are audible as sound. fo.Q products have none of this peculiar sound, instead producing clear, pure sound.

Feature 3
The damping materials used in fo.Q products are designed specifically for audio applications. The damping effect has been verified to extend over a broader frequency range than with earlier damping and vibration-suppressing materials. Moreover, a noteworthy feature is that the materials effectively absorb tiny vibrations that other damping and vibration-suppressing materials are not able to eliminate. This prevents subtle signals from being negated, and overwhelmingly increases the amount of accessible sound information. For instance, the violin voice not only conveys the sound of the strings, but the resonance of the instrument body as well, while with the flute voice, the listener can virtually hear the sound of the performer breathing.
