I tried them at CanJam once but they sounded like legit dogshit that wasn't worth 5 dollars.
But I'm pretty sure they were faulty because a headphone can't sound this bad.
I own the Magister so I know Kennerton can make good headphones!
Yes, on CanJam there was Odin with the damaged drivers. Unfortunately, at populous exhibitions often there are situations when because of the inaccurate working and turmoil the equipment is damaged. This case is already known to the Kennerton team and these headphones are restored :)
You don't think of dog shit having a sound, yet somehow I have no problem imagining what you mean. :P
I don't think you are talking about Canjam Europe 1 year ago but sure :D
It's impossible that they were not broken. I'll try them again later this year and expect a lot more.
Still they weren't really as comfortable as you'd expect for 2k€
Any headohones, even the most solid, can be broken or spoiled :) Imagine, what will happen to the planar drivers if they are badly hit when transported in luggage or a careless visitor connects the headphones to an amplifier turned on at full power? :) Last year, the Kennerton team participated in exhibitions in Munich, Paris, CanJam in Singapore and in Europe. And after all the exhibitions, every headphones was thoroughly tested, the damage was investigated and the design was updated. Just since the summer of last year, updated drivers for Odin began to be released, in which all the shortcomings found were taken into account and reliability was significantly improved.
P.S. Sorry for my bad English :)
are we expecting an updated Odin? Or a new flagship?
Guess thats on a few people's mind when deciding whether to plonk down a decent amount of cash. Don't want to find out a new one is coming out shortly after
I listened to them in a good audio store, they sounded bad besides being very heavy.
Yes, Kennerton team develops the new model. But it won't be the replacement of Odin, it will be the absolutely new model created taking into account wishes of clients. Sounding of the new model and Odin will be miscellaneous. Therefore, there is no occasion to worry, Odin will be production further and to be improved gradually.
