The transmitters were built from a membrane of the latest generation of mylar film (improved with respect to HE-5LE) coated on one side with pure gold, which was stretched between the two perforated sheets of the super-strong magnet. On the other side of the mylar membrane was printed with a new ultra- Which guarantees resistance up to 50 Ohm (12 Ohm higher than HE-5LE). The new mylar material is extremely low weight and exceptional magnetic properties, making it ideal for magnetoelectric transducers – providing even better response times than the HE-5LE transducer for the electro-acoustic signal fed from the amplifier.
Peter Ryka’s test: That sounds like it, quite unlikely. And when you listen to it, and listen very long unfortunately can not, all these Orpheus, K1000, or R10 seem to be less important. I left one of Jordi Savall’s flagship recordings – “Caucha” from Villancicios y Danzas Criollas. The dancers kidnapped me by the hand and I found myself in the midst of them. Unparalleled experience, impossible with other headphones. I let go of Bach’s Fugue organ and could not stand it. Sound pressure was too powerful. I was not, as with the Stax SR-009, the organist himself, but I was standing in front of the organ and their sound crushed me. I ran away. Read whole:
The sound of magnetoelectric headphones (planar, orthodynamic) The earphones made in planar technology are considered to be free from the drawbacks of standard dynamic headphones. Due to the construction of the transducers are characterized by much higher dynamics, high resolution and above all, unrivaled space, which manifests itself in deeper and wider music scene. The minimal weight of the diaphragm results in an unbelievably low distortion – not available for classic dynamic headphones. Thanks to the uniform distribution of the coil across the entire diaphragm, it works with its entire surface, which is much larger than the classical dynamic transducers. As a result, the headphones carry a much wider range of sound. The skillful combination of planar earphones and the appropriate headphone amplifier results in an extremely versatile listening set that perfectly differentiates the recordings and has an unmatched level of detail.
The first handset that caught my eye was the AKG K-1000
– Open construction
– The headset resembles the operation of two small computer speakers placed at the ear
– Impedance 120 Ohm – Frequency range: 30Hz – 25kHz
– SPL: 104dB
– Weight without cable: 270g
– Harmonic distortion <0.5% Usually, after the headphones, we reach for the columns and, of necessity, The K-1000 breaks this stereotype. One look at their construction suggests that we are dealing with a product different from the classic headphones. Their head position makes the earphones a few centimeters from the ear. The fact that the K-1000 is an open construction is not enough. Closer to the columns hanging from the headband than to the traditional headphones. This impression deepens after a long listening session. The impression of the ubiquitous environment through the music scene is quite unusual and its characteristics are more akin to a floorstand set of stereo speakers. Huge retail in a very wide band does not bother you and does not overwhelm you. The lightness with which the K-1000 generates music is astounding. The balance between the strips is excellent, resulting in extremely natural reproductions. As you can hear that there are no artificial pitches, cheap effects that pretend to be spatial or peculiar at the expense of other elements. Also from the design they result in very high power requirements generated by high quality amplifier, otherwise they lack strong bass.

The most versatile headphones in the entire setup. It is difficult to find them by far the weakest point. The original way of building a musical scene and its spatiality and accuracy, especially in the lower registers, makes a perfect impression in every inch. The music produced by the HD800 is an extremely complex mix of detail, selectivity and musicality. The construction of the musical scene is of particular importance. The infinite space of sounds built with intricately interleaved sounds gives an amazing impression both when listening to rock and electronic or acoustic music. Particularly when listening to rock Faith No More is a completely new dimension of music built with the rhythm of the bass guitar. The construction of the eight hundred does not raise any objections to the materials used, the precision of assembly and the rethinking of the counter. Maybe the look itself is not as elegant, stylish and conservative as Grado or Denon, but it also does not give you a reason to complain. Comparing the HD800 to the Denon AH-D5000, pay attention to their better balance and a much smoother, even magic-wiping transition between low and midrange tones. On the other hand, the GS1000i’s HD listening experience shows a greater focus on the depths of the high-end product range from Grado. This difference is decreasing with the pace of music, and at some point prevails over the benefits to the HD800. Using “eight hundred” can be both emotional music adventure and intellectual struggle with the extremely entangled web of sounds. My web page; next page. Each of these HD800 disciplines are simply outstanding.
Graduated audiophile headphones Grado PS 1000:
– Frequency range: 5-50,000 Hz
– Impedance: 32 Ohm
Made of hybrid housing – wood in combination with metal which makes the sound seems closer to the listener. The sound is considered by many people to be the best that any Grado developers have made.
The GS-1000i’s older brother is definitely a more sustainable product. Its superiority over the younger brother is the clearer the faster and more retail we listen to. The mahogany bass sound of the GS-1000i has been complemented by more bright tones and definitely more dynamics and control. Unlike the K-1000, it can not be said that they are lightweight. The materials used have significantly increased the weight of the GS-1000, which limits the mobility of their owner to a comfortable lounge chair. While the GS-1000i excels in the sound of a small number of instruments, the PS-1000 perfectly fits the songs played by the large instruments. The Grado PS-1000 is a brilliant choice for those who love to immerse themselves in the extensive orchestral parts and then pick up instruments from them.
