My dad had these since forever, but I can't find any information on them online, at all.
 
Here's a pic:
 

 
As far as their sound goes, they're a bit warm and aren't the most detailed. Bass extension is pretty good; highs are a bit recessed but fairly sharp nonetheless. Imaging isn't so good for some reason.
 
Anyone know anything about these headphones?

The headband and yoke also look a little like the ones on the Pioneer SE-700 piezoelectric. This is an interesting find whether they operate on the piezo principle or not. If you ever get the urge to disassemble them, have a camera ready.

Does it say DSR-7 on the other side?
 
The japanese site says PIEZO/AZDEN had a DSR-7 model that look exactly like yours:
(Still, it would be cool if you had a look at the driver just to be sure...)

Yep, only way to be sure is to peek at the diaphragm. If they're piezo, you'll see a flat piece of dark-silver plastic film. But I'm afraid it's a conventional dynamic.

Man I'm tempted to tear them down now but they aren't mine and I'm not sure my dad would like that.
 
It does say DSR-7 on both sides. Defective, mind sharing the link to the Japanese site?

Hah, these are indeed the same as what I have. Somehow they got rebranded Piezo.
 
Thanks for the find. It sheds a bit of light on the origins of these mystery cans.
