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 these 3 headphones (Kennerton and LSA) would probably be better in this way (with less red and less color saturation).
It's better that way ?

Do you know if the Diamond will be available in other types of wood?. I think I've read here that LSA just offer one wood variant for their headphones.
In a 2nd batch a dark option will be added. Same wood, different stain. Expected end of may.

As efficient as the Kennerton’s are, a Qudelix 5K would pair exceptionally well (especially the dynamics) ; a bett set than ANY BT phone I know of.

Hello Eric.

It's better. But compare to this picture, which is very close to my own HP-1, just a little too orange :

Valentin just informed me that my Rognir is finished!
WOW ! :)

We'll finally know what it looks like (wood cups and customization if any) and also; I guess, we'll finally know how it sounds, compared to other known headphones, like your Wodan 2021, your Thror and the Odin mk2, not to mention the Gjallarhorn JM Edition.

You won't have to go into details, just give a small overall impression :).

Hey everyone. I've been planning to make my first visit to St. Petersburg (and Russia) some time in the near future when covid travel restrictions are lifted. Anyone know if there is some shop or showroom there where Kennerton headphones could be auditioned?

I'd also be interested in any information about hifi shops and/or events scheduled to be held there in the near future. I know some Russian hifi expositions/trade shows but nearly all that I know of will be held in Moscow.

Thanks in advance!

Hello to all.

Here is the latest Youtube video from Pierre Paya, the French distributor of Kennerton headphones, about the brand new Kennerton Wodan (2021) compared to the Kennerton Odin 2019 (and also, a bit, at the end of the video, with the Thekk).

To make a long story short, technically and musically: Wodan 2021 >> Odin 2019
But also Thekk > Wodan 2021 (for Pierre's ears).

This YouTube video, in French, is subtitled in the language of your choice, so enjoy it


EDIT: Sorry, the subtitles are in French; I don't know how to change it to English; a technical limitation of the video?

Hi.

in this webpage below you will find the contact information for the Kennerton/Fischer Audio store/office in St Petersburg with an address, phone number and email address of Paul (Pavel).

https://fischeraudio.store/

I think you should make an appointment with them before coming, and of course come with a protective mask.

I absolutely love my LSA HP-2 and I'm thinking about getting the HP-1 to see how their planar sounds. The HP-2 is one of the best dynamic driver headphones I've heard and for detail retrieval it's amazing. I think I'm going to sell a headphone or 2 and get the HP-1 because from the reviews I've seen I think it's a headphone I'd like a lot.

Is it just me or there's some similarities between the 2 grills design like almost an inspiration albeit the diamond is completely wooden and the T is bigger on the bottom than the top. If it can get near the performance of the Thror at about 1/2 the price. I'm very interested :)

Hype intensifies
