"The SCS approach.

Subjectively controllable sound

This means: The acoustically effective auditory volume (ie the volume between the headphone driver and the eardrum) can be infinitely varied by a turn of the adjusting knobs; this feature allowing, for the first time, the individual selection of your "seat in the concert hall" and the adaptation of the sound to your individual physiological acoustic taste."
They have simple and nice design

just got these chrome beauties. these pics dont do it justice. zero info on them. zenith headphones, open air type, volume controls, large magnet type speakers. so late 70s?
these actually arrived with a bad cable so i recabled it with a spare. sound is decent for the time. decent highs and mids, has a mid bass bump. a little of the distant sound of paper cone drivers but not too much

Gotta love the sonic semantics.

Got a pair of these in 1981!

Top of the Realistic/Radioshack line back then ! They look like new. Get much use out of them and what are your "Go To" cans now?
post #52 of 1289
Yes, for my then 18 year old ears, they were great! I found that photo as mine went into the trash in 94. Now I use a pair of Sony MDR - CD 870s from the mid 90s.

I have a pair cd 870 too. do the red shifter mod from the cd1700 mods to them.(page was deleted) some dampening in back of the driver and foam removal from the front of the drivers. The cd870 sound like a fuller sony v6.

Edit: oops was think of 780s

Had a pair just like that from 1975 until they completely gave out somewhere around 1995. I had to make some foam pads as the originals only lasted about 15 years!! They were amazing phones!
