    Hi Pavel. I respect your tastes which are not necessarily mine or that of others. So let's talk about other tastes and other people who are familiar with Kennerton headphones (and others totl headphones), too. Pierre Paya (french importer of Kennerton products), prefers (quite clearly) the...

    Hi Dave. It's a very worthwhile project, and I don't think you are disappointed. :) The same color as your beautiful Gjallarhorn JM Edition (blue) ? And with a personalization for the head-band (like Wodan custom or like Rögnir) ?

    Hi, and for the Metal Symphonic genre of music, what is the Rögnir worth compared to your Abyss? Otherwise, do you appreciate the difference in weight between these two headphones?

    Magnificent! :) For memory on my part, the Kennerton family of headphones that I bought in Karelian birch are currently limited to three headphones, in the hope of course of getting a fourth, and not least, the custom Rognir in Karelian birch natural lacquer (note: I am waiting for news from...

    Hi. Great map. Very big synthesis work. :) Only different appreciation from yours (for my 55 years old ears), the Kennerton Thekk should be put at the same level as the Kennerton Thror (that of "Super-flagship" and not that of "simple flagship"), because it is of the same technicality as the...

    Hi. Thanks for this map. For my 55 year old ears, the Thekk is not bright, it is simply a little more fleshy (with more sound density) than the Thror in the midrange and bass. For me, it is on par with the Thror on the technicality criterion (with even better aeration than the Thror), for...

    Hi Dave. Yes, I had already read your first listening impressions. :) If not, would you agree that the Rögnir, with its stock pads, behaves a bit like the Abyss (see the Abyss TC) with a somewhat V-shaped sound signature and with a lot of punch in the bass, while your Wodan 2021 would give a...

    Hi. Beautiful your Rögnir! One question: is this first listening of your Rögnir done with the stock (non-perforated) earpads? Wouldn't the sound balance, especially for the voices, and the naturalness of the voices be better with the alternative microperforated pads (delivered with your...

    At home I only have my Thekk, and my son's Thror (with new ECL-01 earpads). Note: a little parenthesis concerning the Thror and the Thekk : burn-in 150 h indispensable to get the best out of it, with a more fluid and refined sound, after burn-in, and for my part, disappearance of the sibilants...

    Yes, I will do it: can you give me his e-mail (on my private messaging on head-fi). Thanks in advance. :) Eric EDIT: Thanks Dave, pm well received. :)

    Hi Dave. You've convinced me, my friend. :) Your custom Rögnir being your best Kennerton headphones, and myself loving the natural Karelian birch (lacquered), it is now very difficult for me to resist to buy this Rögnir headphone. So, like you, I take the plunge and I officially order today a...

    Hello to all. Eighth wood species proposed for the Kennerton Rögnir, my favorite wood: Karelian birch (natural). Kennerton Rognir “Karelian Birch”. Special custom order. (not (yet) mine, alas ; perhaps, a day?) Il like very much. :)

    So, maybe a Rögnir with Amaranth wood cups (Purple Heart), since you like these two woods for your two Odin mk2 (in Amaranth and Bog oak wood)?

    Hi Dave. Your Rögnir will be the best closed-back headphones on the market; I have no doubt about that. :) And the 20 μm thickness of the planar (isodynamic) diaphragm of the Rögnir is perfectly justified, necessary and even optimal; demonstration in associated links...

    Hi All. A big thank you for my compatriot Philippe (@Hartford) on the French forum who found me links (in Russian, but very easily translatable into English or French via google translate or better still DeepL Translator) of the famous Russian DIYer Snorry revealing us all that there is to know...

    Hi all. There has been a lot of talk lately about the planar diaphragms of orthodynamics headphones (thicknesses and possible reinforcements), and a little less about the magnetic circuit used to make them work. Well, it seems that the Russians have found something interesting and new...

    Hello Andrew. We will know soon, because the first buyers of the Rögnir should soon receive their Rögnir headphone including our friend Dave (@ithilienrp). I pretty much agree that it's very difficult to tell how a headphone will sound just by looking an FR curve, especially if it's not...

    Hello to all. Will the Kennerton Rögnir, Kennerton's premium closed-back planar headphones, become, one day, a Kennerton's iconic headphones? In any case, the poster in the background of this picture of the Rögnir taken in the office of Kennerton's CEO, Valentin Kazanzhi, is already, for sure...

    Hi all. For @Terriero. Indeed, the sound quality of the first youtube video (above) is not bad; that of the second video is much worse, alas. Otherwise, it has just been pointed out to me, on the French forum, by Philippe @Hartford, who owns the LSA HP-1, that the colorimetry of the photo of...

    Hi all. On the French forum, a member of the forum thought that the LSA HP Diamond reminded him of a Samurai Kendo helmet. Beware of the Samurai that lies dormant in him/it ... He can be fatal to other headphones who would underestimate him!
