    As the French say, "tout le gratin" (*) of the headphones and amplifiers for headphones, and representatives of these TOTL headphones and amps, were there at this Singapore CanJam. :)

    (*) French expression that could be translated as: "The most distinguished, the most chosen, the most elegant people of a society, of a milieu".

    It is the same for the very high-end speakers, often very heavy for a question of rigidity, sturdiness and inertia.
    For example, the Grand Utopia EM Focal speaker weighs 265 kg, each!

    The email where they asked me for my PP to refund the "discount" ended up in spam for some reason.

    Gmail is a bit aggressive there lately.

    I'm told a limitation on their site backend prevented an actual discount for the first 10. Whatever, I have 300 back on my PP now.

    I wish they'd release more pretty pictures, sure feels like June is a long way away ...

    From these new pictures of the Thror, Kennerton's new flagship planar flagship, it stands out as having something particularly accomplished.

    I found the Thror's new design successful, both sober and elegant, particularly for the new external grid with this stylish T that has character.

    You will also notice the new suspension headband, both wider (we can see it in the photo on the left), but also more accomplished, because including two very thin leather blades sandwiching an intermediate material that should serve as padding and further improve the wearing comfort of the Thror on the top of the skull (better distribution of pressure); Bernard's Kékénnerton V2 headband (Kéké26 in France) fulfills the same function but has a different aesthetic.

    I like this headphone!

    Kennerton can be proud of their accomplished work. :)

    EDIT : the same picture, but with a better definition (with less Jpeg artefact).

    That said, a Kennerton Thror with cups made in Karelian birch wood or pale lunar ebony wood would also be great!

    Otherwise, I have confirmation on the russian forum that the new (and soon) Odin mk3 (called also Odin Thridi in France and, to smile, Odin 3D) will have the same new membrane "high technology" of the Thror, and it will be lighter than the current Odin mk2 (probably 100 g less, thanks to the use of grid in composite material and not in zinc); the main difference with the Thror will come from the material chosen for the drivers's frame (always in metal and not in carbon fiber: this last point remains a hypothesis on my part).

    Hi all,

    Seen on the Kennerton's facebook site a new Kennerton / Fischer Audio headphone, whose name we expect to be revealed soon.

    As well as Kennerton's boss comment: Valentin Kazanzhi, about this new headphone: " The mysterious STRANGER from Kennerton/Fischer. Very soon he will announce his name. But it has a great beautiful sound. All in one. Ready to surprise. Ready to provide pleasure. Just add some favorite music... "

    and my comments and assumptions on this new Kennerton headphones, on the French forum:

    Well, we know the name starts with M.

    My guess is McHeadphone!
     
  10. eric65
    Yes, agree with you for the M.

    It is ! :)

    In exactly 14 days we will be able to compare, on the occasion of the anniversary of the Pierre Paya's showroom (a distributor of high-end headphones in France), this famous Thror headphones (or Tror), with the Odin mk2 (but also one of rare Odin mk1 remaining with its original drivers), with the new Odin mk3 (Thridi in France) that Pierre will receive at the same time as the Thror, but also other renowned headphones: the Hifiman Susvara, the HE-1000 V2 , the Audeze LCD4, the JPS Abyss and the Focal Utopia (and the Clear) !
