If you clap them together does it sound like a horse trotting?

This should be the question first answered with any headphone review, really


LifeAspect t1_ja4xbw1 wrote

seems these were made in the early 70s and sold until like 74, vintage Japanese headphones (I mean obviously considering Pioneer)

Reproduction frequency band 20-20,000HzAllowable input 500MW

I can find 2 versions of the headphone, the one you have and the limited edition one. If I look online on Japanese websites

8 ohm headphones it seems

Otherwise, can't find much more myself

500MW!? I assume you mean 500mW? Otherwise OP gonna need a nuclear powered Amp to drive those.

I just copy pasted from a Japanese listing 😂😅🙃

Doc brown's headphones for that big speaker Marty blows?

KOSS had similar, this was closed back for studio monitoring or not bothering your roommate back then. Not junk, just old technology. Was high end but the end did not go that high back then. But leather pad on top, serious ear pads, metal frame, definitely an attempt was made

Please give us your thoughts on how they sound!

50 yrs old and close to non detoriation to the materials.. Whereas today you can count on your 2 years old premium ANCs to flake or whatever


BlackEyedWheeze t1_ja8ee1r wrote

well nobody is seriously going to be using them so all the cost in making an indestructible headphone was wasted

If they are anything like my SE-505s, don't judge them too harshly until plugged into a decent amp. At 8 ohms, they're current hogs.

I have had a couple of vintage Pioneer headphones in the past . The last was a pair of Pioneer SE 405 which looks really similar to those. They were built well, (the volume knobs even worked) but really, really heavy. I wanted to like them but I just didn't. They were boxey sounding, had no top end extension, no sub bass, overall a dull, dark sound.

All I know it's my favourite colour (brown)

I’ve long been tempted to buy some vintage cans and update them with modern drivers and try to tune them myself.

They look like horror headphones from atomic heart or something
