What brand was this headphone???

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
some years ago I tried an open headphone whose brand I just can't remember. The special thing about it was: The "speakers" were 1 inch above the ears, could be turned around their vertical axe. Their back was made of a steel grill.

Has anyone got an idea what headphones these were???

Thanks a lot!

Thanks for your reply! The back was similar, but they were about half the size and rounder. And more beautiful. ;-)

Thank you very much, all!

 

The Sony is closest to it. But without the ring around the speaker. Just the bow over my head. The speaker really hung / turned suspended 1 inch away from the ear.

Can you give us an idea of the age of these headphones? Are we talking about something fairly recent, like the last 10 years, or are we talking about something from the 1970s? Was there any plastic on them, or were they entirely made of metal? What were the earpads like? Deep and mushy foam or flat and hard?

I think it was 10 years ago. If I am not mistaken, the bow on the head was leather or plastic. The earpads were fully metal, attached to the bow like the B&W p5; they looked like the K1000, but they were half the size, about 2 x 1.5 x 0.6 inches, rectangular with rounded edges. The were ½ inch from the ear.

 

Thanks a lot for your efforts!
