USSR Orthodynamic headphones TDS-16 & TDS-5M (NOS)
Will Ship To: Anywhere
1st: Brand new USSR Orthodynamic headphones TDS-5M with box & manual, 1991 year
was opend only for checking , headpads already not so soft as must be.
"TDS 5M supposed to be soviet analog of Yamaha HP-1. I did not take direct comparison. I like these cans more when listening some of 80s stuff - punk, new wave, pop. They have enough drive for such music, a little hump in upper bass, timed with extra dampening. Lots of owners prefer to brighten the TDS 5M signature by changing stock cable to some new one"

2nd: Used USSR Orthodynamic headphones TDS-16 (40ohm) "Smela"
headpads already old & cant hold shape. Headphones works perfectly.
headband has a crack , but was glued, has Neutrik 3.5 mm plug.
"They differ from TDS 16 manufactured in Kiev. The same drivers but different housing and cable. Pads from the cheap fake leather gave fantastic results for sound. These cans I'll never part with. They have the quickest attack, comparable with stats, excellent upper bass slam, exceptional transparency in mids. Forget about Grados, these ones are excellent choice for any brutal music, best choice for death-metal listening, extremely good for blues, any guitar music, where the light speed attack is important. Highs are rough and dirty."
