    For now they understand, that Rognir is unique and do not plan to close Rognir with rerease of Arkona, leaving question "flagship" or not aside for Rognir vs Arkona.

    I also listened a bit new open-back headphones (I didn’t look at the name, not shure with right spelling - Vinneta). First try with velour ear pads. The sound signature is noticeably lighter than Arkona, but without losing punch in the low end. The mids are more open, clean and clear. HF is more...

    Today I attended Moscow Hi-End Show to get acquainted with Arkona, my first impressions were very positive. I listened it first a little on vinyl, then in more detail on digital system (Violectric DAC+amp). They react very sensitively to changes in source system. So, the impressions from the...

    On this chart in "dark" I mean more recessed treble than bass volume. I.e. Fostex 900 still "light" for me, nevertheless they're definitely bass heavy. And as I know there are more than one revision of Wodan, on chart - aluminium driver version.

    Without tube = bass heavy version. If you have bass heavy version with bass heavy pads, that could mean too much bass obviously, non-bass-heavy pads worth trying ) But if you listen Thror and Rognir in short session and overall not for long I would recommend to stay with one of them for about a...

    Rognir Dynamic. The very first words about the main thing. I listen to headphones all the time since their arrival as the main and only ones. And with the exception of the first days - without the desire to switch to something else, on the contrary, with understanding - if tomorrow I move to a...

    Сomparison to the Abyss. Text next to arrow - comparison of the corresponding headphones. Kennertons make new models too fast, little chance to catch up them with careful listening ) So no experience with Novel yet.

    My humble opinion on Kennerton headphones. In short - I would go for Thror )

    And by the way, couple of photos. Colour of these Rognir Dynamic have chameleon behavior. First photo - in direct bright light, second photo - usual ambient light. They also have some pearl-like gloss effect, that can not be seen in photo.

    John, could you clarify which pads exactly you are referring to, I'm a bit confused with multitude of pads I had with Rognir / Rognir Dynamic )

    My objection was not about objective measurments, but about subjective listetning conclusions. ASR seems as good in measurments as deep and abyss-dark anti-good in real world listening conclusions )) So be warned! ))

    I have already been the owner of Stealth for a couple of months. There is no reason not to share my impressions in comparison with Rognir. Including analyzing the "comparison" on audiosciencereview. Let me remind you what it is, quote: “I was listening to my every day Dan Clark Stealth before...

    Best headphones for electronic music

    If you mean my threads on metal and jazz, probably there is a place for subjective bias ) But they're very, very good headphones any way. And I have to say, that my personal favorite first version of Abyss. Later incarnation could be more refined techmically, but taste-wise more sterile, alas fo me.

    Yes, at least every september this thread worth to be updated )) Many great headphones added. And I'm pleased to say that for now I have closed headphones (Kennerton Rognir), that I like no less, than many open rivals.
