SUPRA Headphones - NITRO & HALO

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

The famed Swedish brand from Jenving is taking the plunge into headphones.

 

Any bold Scandinavians want to take the plunge?

I have no idea what the compensation is, or whether it's measured with a 2cc or IEC711.

Looks really smoothed over, though.

 

It's already on sale in Sweden: http://www.cyberphoto.se/info.php?article=supranitrovit

 

They're also coming out with some over-ears soon, called HALO:

The iem design reminds me of OM Audio's hybrid: http://www.om-audio.com/product/inearpeace

Apparently they have a bespoke dynamic driver inside, though? But that doesn't mean much.

And reportedly the OM audio iem is very V shaped, so it seems very different sigs. You just don't see that a housing and cable together very often, so it was instantly recognizable.

Doesn't look like it's the same if you compare the specs, the frequency response for OM is 20Hz-20kHz whilst the supra are 16Hz-22kHz, and the supra have a 9mm driver whilst the OM have a 10mm driver.

Just thought I'd let you know I've purchased the Nitro's and after letting them burn in (according to how the manual recommends: 4 hours on, 2 hours off, 2 hours on and then 2 hours off and then you're apparently good to go), I can say that they seem pretty good, I might do a quick review after I've put some more hours into listening to them. But based off first impressions, I like them a lot.

 

Btw, I forgot to mention that for those who haven't read the marketing, all 3 buttons on the controller work with both windows, android and IOS, there's a switch on the back depending on which OS you're using (Android/windows on 1, IOS on 2), which is  a nice bonus since most brands seem to only allow that functionality for IOS.

LOL, they have a burn-in guide? Cute.

 

BTW, nice screen name... very explosive.

Just thought I'd give you an update with my thoughts sofar (I'm comparing to Sennheiser Momentum and Denon AH 560R):

-More base heavy than the Momentum, but still very clear in terms of sound (I listen to mostly EDM using the S3 if that helps)

-Cable noise isn't brilliant, but leagues ahead of the Denon's I used before, but gets very limited once the cable is attached to your collar using the cable clip

-Isolation is limited, slightly better than the Momentum, but worse than the Denon's i.e. you  can hear what's going on around you quite clearly, but once you put music on it won't bother you

-I found they work best when you're on the move, as in tasking the bus or the car, but the cable noise gets annoying if you're walking and not using the clip it comes with

-The earbuds can be annoying to get a good insertion if you have small ears like me, only the smallest version of the earbud works for me, but forn those with midsized ears it comes with 3 good options which they can use based on preference

 

If you want any more information, just quote me here and I'll be happy to answer

 

*Edit*

I forgot to mention the build quality, which to me seems amazing, and it will probably take quite a bit to break them
