Luxury over-ear headphones for commutersKey features:
- Removable cable (four included)
- Planar magnetic driver
- Closed-back, over-ear headphones
Oppo is a relatively new name in headphones. It has been making high-end Blu-ray players for years, but it really blew us away with the Oppo PM-3
. These are planar magnetic headphones, getting you amazingly low-distortion, high-accuracy sound in a package that is also dead convenient.
Planar magnetic headphones are generally big and heavy. Not here. These are no less convenient than the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0. What they offer over that pair is a slightly more ‘audiophile’ signature, with higher-quality mid-range texture.
The treble isn’t concentrated menthol-potent, but the sound quality in general is simply outstanding.
