Produced by Joseph Cwik and Jude Mansilla In this episode of Head-Fi TV we give you a first look at the new Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphone System being launched in Tokyo ahead of the Fujiya Avic Tokyo Headphone Festival. In my opinion, the Shure KSE1500 may be the most significant high-end product launch in our part of the audio world since the Sennheiser HD 800. It is remarkable. 2016-01-17 16:28 EST UPDATE: Some are finding that the input sensitivity of the KSA1500 amp is quite high, and, as a result, some are experiencing distortion from input clipping. The KSA1500 provides has an easy fix built into it (the input pad), and I posted instructions on how to enable it--and tips/tricks related to this--which you can read by clicking on the following link: Shure KSE1500 Tips / Tricks Products mentioned in the video: Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphone System Stax SR-009 electrostatic headphone Stax SR-002 electrostatic headphone KOSS ESP950 electrostatic headphone Sennheiser Orpheus electrostatic headphone system Shure 55 Unidyne Vocal Microphone microphone Shure SM58 vocal microphone Shure MOTIV MV88 iOS-compatible stereo condenser microphone Stax SR-L700 electrostatic headphone Stax SRM-007t electrostatic headphone Schiit Audio Yggdrasil multibit DAC with closed-form filter Schiit Audio Gungnir Multibit multibit DAC Chord Electronics Hugo TT desktop DAC/amp Chord Electronics Mojo portable DAC/amp We will occasionally post Q&A episodes of Head-Fi TV.
