    In Episode 010 of Head-Fi TV, we take a look at a couple of enigmatic products from an enigmatic Japanese designer and company. The BPP is a portable supertweeter for headphone listening. The H2+ is a headphone with Heil-type polymer piezoelectric drivers and supertweeters. (We also look at the H2+'s companion TR2 transformer box.)

    Wow.  Really interesting.  Nice pick for a topic, Jude.

    Neat concept!
     
    I can imagine a set of mounted mini speakers that stick to the side of your jaw just below your ears that could use this idea.

    I keep sayin', we're one step away from a halo neck brace style (the kind that bolt into your head) with transducers to put the sound directly into our skull. Well... maybe something slightly less extreme... but I wouldn't be surprised if something subdermal comes out within a decade.

    Head-Fi TV is covering too many niche/boutique products. How about more mainstream products for the typical head-fi'er in future episodes?

    Like the ones that almost everyone has experience with? What's the point in that? Just ask anybody on the forums for average stuff.

    We'll continue to cover more mainstream products, in addition to the Head-Fi'ers-are-the-only-ones-who'll-get-this stuff.
     
    I just don't think you'll ever see the likes of the TakeT H2+ covered on CNET's videos, or any other video channel for that matter--that is why we must. [​IMG]
     
    I think the next episode has more non-mainstream stuff, too, so you might want to avoid Episode 011.

    Yes, we need more fringe products, Average Joe went for the "fringe" products, and discovered pure awesomeness out there for the Custom IEM seeker (the Fabs in the works for me, I wouldn't have found out about them any other way) 
    So "fringe" away Mr. Jude, dig us up those hidden gems!!!

    Cool stuff Jude. Do you really need the TR2 for the H2+ or could you drive it directly from a speaker amp? And what about the pairing of the TR2 with a speaker amp, does it improve as you go up to a higher quality speaker amp?

    Maybe Tyll would like to measure them! [​IMG]

    at one point, I thought Jude was gonna say the "facepalm test"...[​IMG]

    Good to see reviews of not that common technology. By the way- was there any difference whether the tweeter flaps were opened on the H2 headphone/earspeaker?
