    Hi all.

    Here a new pic of the Kennerton Thror, this time wooden in Palisander wood (left) next to a Thror in bog oak wood (right) (note bog oak wood probably more lightweight).

    All that's missing is a Kennerton Thror in Karelian birch, and I'd be almost tempted to buy a second Kennerton Thror! :beyersmile:

    In photo below, my Odin mk2, in Karelian birch (with its original pads V1).

    I love very much this nordic wood ! :)

    I must admit that from the photos, karelian birch is my favourite.

    Only a couple of days until we receive our Kennerton shipment!

    Hand-assembled (handcrafted) in Russia (Saint Petersburg), probably by the chief engineer himself (Max), of a very desirable Kennerton Thror (in Zebrano wood ?).

    The "human machine" assembling this Thror seems well oiled (and master of the situation): One could almost imagine a human automaton, with a big H for human! :beyersmile:

    Bravo! :)

    I've been venturing out into other headphones lately, just wanting to experience different flavours (and having a bit of cash to do so at the moment). I've been enjoying the HiFiMan HE1000v2, and the Audeze LCD2 classic, and even the mighty LCD4. All have their strengths and weaknesses. All are marvelous. BUT: Kennerton is the best! I come back to my Odin and Vali, and they are still overall better (for me). I should have saved my money and got a Thror...Probably still will.

    In accessories, does anyone know if Kennerton has a T-Shirt? I'd proudly wear it!

    Viva Kennerton! :)

    Hi all,

    Promised thing, thing due!

    Here, the link to the objective measurements of @Taverius' Kennerton Thror, made by @Sorrodje (the French co-inventor, with @agnostic1er, of the Super-Dupond resonator for the HD800), are available on the web; they are have been retranscribed on the French forum at this link: https://musique-o-casque.com/viewtopic.php?p=337#p337.

    These measurements of the Kennerton Thror are quite good: in particular with a very low distortion from 20 Hz to 10 KHz; the 20 Hz is reproduced at the level of 250 Hz. Sub-bass: there are some, and very clean.
    You can also see at this link the CSD (Waterfall) as well as the impulse response of the Thror, compared to the Odin mk1.

    Thanks @Sorrodje for these measurements and @Taverius for is loan of his superb Thror. :)

    Hi all,

    Kennerton has released a very special version of Thror, a bit more expensive than the serial Thror.

    quote :
    " A special version of the Kennerton Thror. The cups are made of vivid stabilized Karelian Birch wood. The headband and ear pads are made of specially selected for these headphones softest Italian emerald lamb skin.
    Customized cable from the vintage litz wires as well specially made in green color. This is an unusual and very harmonious set "

    You have to like the green! :beyersmile::)

    Green headphone can be exotic and collectible, and I have a feeling that this special version of Thror will become a legend.

    To laugh a bit ... ...

    Thror helmet / headphones (for camouflage, for snipers) equipping the Russian and the Finnish army ; it's an ideal helmet / headphones for the complete camouflage of the soldier hidden (ambushed) in the boreal forests, winter, especially the Karelia birch forests. :beyersmile:

    This nordic planar headphones, in this green livery (winter camouflage) is a killer! :o2smile:

    Very interesting, and worth to take a look, even if you don't speak French (beautiful pictures)...
