Vintage Pickering PH-4955 headphones

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Picked these up recently at a charity auction.  They look cool, but are heavy and sound just OK compared to my other modern HPs.

So you don't like quite as much as the girl in the ad?  I wish more vintage sets sounded awesome, because the aesthetics of them are fascinating.   Those look awesome.

they had to make a stuffed girl for the pic, so her neck didn't break from the HP weight biggrin.gif

Look to have aged nicely, unlike my Pioneer monitor 10 biggrin.gif .

Interesting to see it's a dual driver unit.

I am the girl in the ad circa 1972.  The headphones weren't all that heavy and had a great sound.

Welcome to Head-Fi @pickering girl!!

 

How did you get picked for the 1972 ad?

I'm gonna try to bring this thread back…  I'm looking at buying a vintage pickering HP on CL for $40.  It's a 3 drivers rectangle cup, does anyone know anything about them?  To me they just look cool but have no idea how they sound or know anything about their quality...
