( thanks for posting the pic JML smily_headphones1.gif )

Even though an all black base stand would be pretty nice as well. Maybe in the future they will implement the 2 brushed aluminum colors of the HA-1

Of course you could always buy the cherry one and spray paint it whatever color you want. wink.gif

Did you know that you can wrap the headphone cable up in the base of the stand so it's out of the way?   And the white cover that came with the demin carrying case can be used to cover the PM-1 and the stand for dust protection.   :smile:

^^ Just shows how intelligently engineered these are.

It is a photoshoped image. We do not have an alternative color scheme for the stand. The ad was designed to highlight the "class" or the HA-1 and the PM-1, which is why everything was darkened except for spectral highlights.

We are looking into making a 1.8m 3.5mm cable. We should have these available this summer.

"Just in case you guys didn't get the chance to get the OPPO headphone stand... its in stock again...  :ksc75smile:"

 

I'm glad I ordered mine with the original order about a month ago.

Will the Balanced Headphone Cable that you are selling as an accessory for the PM-1 also work with the PM-2?

 

thanks.

I think you mean 'Omniscient' here!

As in 'all-knowing'!

 

Definition of this pedant! (He wishes) (-:

 

Off to be 'more invisible' again!

Mine is exactly as this picture with a deep red color.

If acrylic part were brushed metal, I'd be all over this.

What? MORE invisible? How is that again?

And a background being 'omnipresent'?


It's understandable when you hear the two phones against each other. I think the Oppo's roll-off disguises the sound of ambience as blackness. It really is an inky background where sounds come out of the void with beautiful musicality; whereas with the LCD3 you're far more aware of the recording space and low-level background noises in the recording/recording venue.

A great looking pair of cans, and from the comments here it appears that OPPO may have a very promising future in the high end headphone market.
