Overview

 

*NEW* The Kingsound Electrostatic Headphone 1 is King's Audio's highly anticipated Flagship Model headphone.

 

 Prepare to be AMAZED!!! 

 
For those of you who love electrostatic headphones, you are going to be drooling over the sound in these AMAZING
 
headphones for ONLY $500!!  We had many headphone enthusiasts in a NY Audio show very impressed, amazed and
 
asking to preorder these. The electrostatic loudspeaker is very simple in concept, but difficult to construct successfully
 
in practice.  lts operation relies on electrostatic attraction and repulsion, in much the same way as a piece of thin paper
 
attracted to a rubber balloon that is charged by rubbing it against fabric.
 
Description
 
SINCE 2002, King’s Audio Limited has been an electrostatic loudspeaker manufacturer, with their KingSound products
 
retailing in the UK, US, China and Australia.
 
Based in Hong Kong, King's Audio has been advancing at a rapid rate when it comes to quality and reliability, coming
 
from years of research in their lab and, most importantly, feedback from audiophiles across the world over the last 10
 
years. In return, Kingsound makes high quality products bringing genuine high fidelity back into your listening room.
 
HOW DOES THE KINGSOUND M-10 ELECTROSTATIC SOLID STATE HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER WORK?
 
The electrostatic loudspeaker is very simple in concept, but difficult to construct successfully in practice.
 
lts operation relies on electrostatic attraction and repulsion, in much the same way as a piece of thin paper attracted to
 
a rubber balloon that is charged by rubbing it against fabric.

Can this headphones be driven by a Stax amp?
post #3 of 16

Yes however it is a better deal to buy the Headphones with the amp, then by itself. The Bias I was told is 400v, but according to Kingsound they will work fine on the Stax Amps.

Anybody knows who's going to be the retailer in Australia? I'm interested but the 200 dollar shipping from us definitely kills the deal

Shipping wont be $200, but I have no idea who in AU will have these.

I ordered the headphones only and shipping was like $60.

 

Drew, any idea when you'll get them in?

No exact date yet. Like any new product there is no point giving an exact date as it will never be met. The goal is April, but that is the best I can guestimate. I gave up long ago trying to crystal ball these things:)

I added the solid state amp and headphone. And the shipping calculator shows 190 something. So what's the correct shipping cost should be?

Thanks

I am interested too but shipping is coming up as $200 on the moon audio website for Australia . Can I pre order without the postage and pay postage once delivery is confirmed. I am really interested in the pre order deal and don't want to miss it.

Drew, Nichole

 

Got the Kingsounds and the M-10 amp today. Thank you for the prompt shipping. I have been listening for over an hour and preliminary impressions are:

 

1. Sound signature is indeed laid-back and very easy listening indeed. I have the volume dial at 9 o'clock and that's plenty for me. As I typed this I moved to 11 o'clock and the detail and treble are astonishing but man, its loud.

2. Very good bass - detail and extension without being muddy. The M-10 has two gain settings and I am on the low gain setting for now.

3. Overall detail is very good and the amp is fast.

4. Headphone comfort is amazing although I had to fiddle with it initially to get the fit right. 

 

Bottom line: Fantastic value for the money. My entry into the electrostatics arena and I could not be happier. 

 

Thanks as always

Thanks for the feedback. The same feedback was given by all who listened at the California Audio Show this past wknd. One of the Best Bang for the buck set ups in Headphone Audio. The Tube amp is even better. At CES when i heard the Prototypes I was favoring the SS setup. But the final production version of the Tube Amp M-20 is amazing. And the tubes are common so tube rolling will be next on my list:)

Drew, thank you. Here's the deal. I'm going to wait for your feedback on the tube amp, specifically what tubes you think go best with it (stock or otherwise). I've done a little bit of tube rolling myself with the Schiit Lyr and tend to favor the Amperex and the Voskhod Silver Rockets. Anyway, you let me know, big guy, and I'll send in my order for the M-20.
