Oppo PM-1: A New Planar Magnetic Headphone! - Page 30

post #436 of 2000

I'm excited by the prospect of a new planar with a headband that doesn't look like it was made in a high school shops class.

Haha.  True that!

One thing that is not speculation with regard to Oppo's product line is their VERY generous return policy. 30 days with no questions asked. Not sure if they can be so generous with their new heapdhone though.

Oppo has just put all other planar headphone companies on notice.

If these come in at 500.00. I'm in.

I'm predicting that the FR is ruler flat from about 20hZ to 20 kHz..

Ah. Pretty sure that would sound extremely harsh in the high end. I don't think ruler flat to 20kHz is the goal for headphone creators.

And this thread will soon be approaching the post count of the Audeze closed-back prototype thread started exactly a year earlier. You get the picture..

:blink:  What an odd statement.

Not odd. He makes sense. A ruler flat line will cause upper mids to be a bit harsh. Ideally, the upper ranges need to slope downwards some. That seems to be the way higher end headphones are going nowadays.

With sound being generated so close to the ear you may need a equalization curve in order to sound flat at the ear drum.

Apologies for the unrelated question, but what model are the Sony headphones on picture 7 in the first post?
