    Hi all.

    Advocate for a widening of the Kennerton range with non-premium headphones; Enlargement already started with the amazing headphones Kennerton Magni, and that could (should even) be continued with the astonishing but still hypothetical Kennerton "Thekk" alias "Welcome One" (weighing only 395 g, taking over the headband of the Magni and lightened drivers derived from those of Thror) and later with other headphones Kennerton, always non premium, taking over the headband of the Magni (more comfortable and light, and also cheaper to produce than the complex but original headband used on most Kennerton headphones today), including, why not (for these new hypothetical non-premium Kennerton headphones), the drivers of Thridi and even of Vali (all excellent too).

    Of course, the premium versions (with the current headband that everyone knows and wood species all more beautiful than the others) could very well coexist with non-premium versions, cheaper, lighter and also more comfortable, based on the Magni headband.:)

    Thus, there will be something for all tastes, and for all budgets, and Kennerton (and his favorite European importer) should do very well, as the demand for this expanded range of Kennerton headphones is expected to increase sharply, both for premium headphones, the most beautiful (because they are precisely premium:wink:) than for the non-premium headphones, more affordable, and ultimately more in Kennerton's philosophy (that of allowing access to the largest number of people the best headphones for the construction and the sound quality).:)

    Pierre Paya (on the French forum), importer of Kennerton headphones in France, would be in favour of this approach of extending the Kennerton range to non-premium headphones (by generalization the Magni headband to all current Kennerton headphones productions) while maintaining the current premium range of Kennerton headphones (which would coexist with the non-premium range headphones), with the notable difference that he is ready (and I do not agree with him) that the non-premium headphones will have to be at least as expensive as the premium headphones, in his business interest (I disapprove), unless Pierre is a joker :beyersmile: (it's probably a joke).

    "Non-premium" Kennerton headphones.

    Both headphones (non-premium and premium) will have their audience and should find takers (buyers).

    Have a nice day.

    Hi all.

    After the first impressions of William Murdock on the Kennerton Magni (see YouTube video below)



    Here is the continuation of the examination of the Kennerton Magni by the same reviewer (William Murdock), a much more complete examination and always very interesting to visualize (and to hear).



    We learn a lot about the Magni, starting with the two vents on the back of the headphones (from the preproduction Magni) being replaced in the production Magni by a single vent, always located at the back plate of the headphones, and having a very peculiar shape, that of a black bat's head; ingenious, is not it?
    The back plate would be aluminum.
    The wood of the cups (in ring) is true; it's not a veneer.

    William is amazed by the resolution of the Magni he finds equal to see superior to all the headphones he could test (including the Thror), without price limitation.
    It specifies, and it is for me crucial, that there is no unpleasant underlining and tiring of treble (in the form of "sss" hissing).
    He also says that the midds are "creamy" and consistent, not lean or dry (like the Hifiman Arya), that the bass is dynamic, without requiring powerful amplifiers (unlike the Hifiman Arya), that the extension to sub- bass is very good (when the heaphones is well sealed); that there is no rol-off of treble, at least within the limit of his hearing (12 KHz); that the sound scene remains limited in width, but with a good depth; it is narrower than that of Hifiman Arya (which is an open headphones); and finally that the tonal balance is excellent, for him among the best and similar to that of the Hifiman Arya (an open ortho headphones of 1600 dollars).

    But look (and listen) the whole video, you'll have all the details you need to know about this amazing (and excellent) headphones Kennerton Magni, probably the revelation of summer 2019 for headphones (especially at the current price). :)

    Question, how do you see thread views? I thought HF removed this after moving away from huddler.
