They look semi-closed/open if anything. The grills are very dense.

Dear PM-1 owners, I understand that it can be a very agonizing job reviewing a pair of headphones and not getting it right can leave you miserable. So here's my idea. Send a pair to Tyll. He'll have graphs and he's heard just about every pair of headphones made. He knows the ins and outs of them and explaining their sound comes as natural as Bob Barker telling you what prize you've won and understanding him is like hearing Bob tell you "you've won a brand new car!" you just get it.

A great use of a dinning table.  I wish my wife would let me do that.  :)

I'm sure Tyll will have one if he doesn't already.

I saw on another forum that he will receive his pair very soon.

$699 for a pair of headphone that will probably rival with the LCD-X/LCD-3/HE-6...

I'd be VERY interested in this comparison also.  Strengths and weaknesses as compared to each other.

I don't have a TH600 but my understanding is it is the same as Denon D7000.  

 

Oppo PM-1 is much easier to love.

 

PM-2 should love the same as PM-1

What kind of coffee was in the cup, fresh ground and brewed? :atsmile:

If PM-2 sounds the same as PM-1 without all the fancy materials I would take it.

Of course I would need to hear the PM-1 first to see if I like it. :)

post #149 of 3070

If PM-2 sounds the same as PM-1, then PM-1 is a pretty terrible deal for those who value the SQ:cost ratio over other things.

This new headphone by OPPO is beginning to sound like an industry wide deal changer to me. Could it put headphone amp makers out of business?

 

Does anyone know where these headphones are manufactured? they sure look like Quality Control was a top priority. Looking forward to more comments.
