Rave review of the 'Astonishing' KingSound KS-H3 headphones

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I've been tempted to try a set of these with the Stax SRM323S.

Please do and let us know how it goes.

I had the opportunity to try an older KingSound model, but unfortunately I was listening to 009s just previously, so the KS sounded overly bassy and dark. But I want more electrostatics on the market and so want KS to bring out a worthy (and less expensive) competitor to Stax.

Another interesting review on, King Sound top of the line KS-H3 headphones, with their top of the line headphone amp M-20 set-up:

I have dynamic and planar magnetic headphones, King Sound is steering up my curiosity; with  more affordable electrostatic headphones systems (ie. versus STAX).

 

Cheers

The reviewer here had used the HE-500 as their headphone reference, makes it difficult to take much from their opinion of the KingSound.

I'm thinking the KS-H3  is a big, big step up from their first model.

You are right, not disagreeing at all with your point.

 

Nevertheless, speaking for myself; since there are not many reviews on KingSound headphones. It is fair to gather as many impressions/reviews as possible from different sources, to subjectively gauge their capabilities and sound signature; even if the comparison made, is not the one I'd hoped.

Oh definitely, just hard when the reviewer has so few data points to work with.

The initial review that was linked gives me a reasonable feel for where these sit, at least until I can hear them for myself.

Yup... nothing compares to listening with your own ears, and, decide whether it can be a worthy investment or not :-).
