This thread is for discussion on the AR-H1 headphone.

I've been using it for about a week and so far am really enjoying it. Has anyone else tried it yet?

Here are a couple of early pictures.

what can you compare the sound to? this could be an interesting headphone.
It's my only planar so I can't do any comparisons until I take it to a local store for some A/B.

I can tell you it's got a punchy, well controlled bass. Signature is balanced and resolving. Highs are not smoothed over so if there's inherent sibilance in a track you'll hear it but it's non fatiguing.

It's great for psytrance. The bass is actually fairly similar to the DT990 but not as pronounced because the 990 has a very V-shaped signature while the H1 is more balanced. There's certainly enough punch there though.

Well that's certainly a striking looking pair of planar headphones. Very interested.

Anyone able to find the earpad dimensions? They look like larger Oppos which I always passed over due to the small size.

The inner dimensions are roughly 8x5 cm

Why don't you tell us everything you know about this headphone, being that it is new ?
