Penon Volt: dynamic, armature and electrostatic drivers all at once
Hong Kong-based Penon has released the flagship Volt in-ear headphones. Manufacturers attributed the novelty to audiophile in-ear monitors (earbuds designed for professional use).
The hybrid headphone system uses three sound reproduction technologies at once: an electrostatic Sonion 4, a reinforcing Sonion 2 and a 10mm speaker are installed in each headphone. An impedance of about 12 ohms makes the Penon Volt compatible with almost any signal source.
As stated: the parameters of the Volt headphones are almost unique: the sensitivity is 114 dB, and the frequency range is 15-80,000 Hz. The headphones are equipped with a 1.2 m detachable cable with silver-plated monocrystalline copper conductors.
Using adapters, several connection options are provided: balanced 2.5 mm and 4.4 mm or unbalanced 3.5 mm. The set also includes a set of earbuds in three sizes in two versions: silicone or memory foam. A cleaning brush and a bag were added to it.
Penon Volt received blue translucent plastic cases. However, the design can still be discussed with company representatives. In the US, these headphones will cost $800.
