Kennerton Odin

In our view, the perfect headphone should combine the best of dynamic and electrostatic technologies. It should have the airy and detailed sound of an electrostatic driver and the power, impact, and emotion of dynamic transducers.

In the design of the Odin we have minimized internal structure resonances and optimized sound wave patterns, to create a clear, low-distortion sound frequency response. The magnetic structure is designed to eliminate unwanted resonances and unify magnetic field distribution over the total frequency range.

 

We made our own driver from scratch…

Our drivers are solely designed and produced in Russia in a facility that works for the aerospace and military industry, which ensures the highest quality and durability of our headphones.

A new 80mm planar-magnetic driver was built having in mind phase coherence, flat impedance and a low-mass diaphragm.
Our multi-layer 10µm polyimide film diaphragm are tested to have the highest reliability and longevity in the most extreme environmental conditions.
The FEM-Optimized Magnet System with 10 neodymium magnets are arranged in symmetric push-pull configuration.
Our unique semicircular bar magnets have many advantages over the ordinary rectangular shaped bar magnets, yielding a more uniform magnetic field, greatly reducing internal resonances.
Our driver allows greater sensitivity thanks to its powerful magnets and low-mass diaphragm. It can therefore be also driven by portable devices.

The quality of the materials used s simply without comparison in the market:

Aerospace grade aluminum and steel used.

Quality wooden earcup.

Complete absence of any plastic parts.

Fine lambskin leather.

 

THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF STANDARD WOODEN CUPS (MATTE WAX)
1. All wood types used for making the headphones’ assembly and cups always undergo multiple different processes. We use drying and coating methods which have antibacterial substances making the cups pleasant to look at and resistant against environmental factors.

2. Our wooden cups are made by a specific in-house developed procedure. The wood types and geometry of acoustic design, influences the sound and we therefore take this into account when producing and designing our cups.

3. Cups are manufactured by a 3D model on a computer controlled by a precision machine; the machines have extreme processing quality and geometric shape repeatability.

4. After the milling operation, the cups are sanded and polished by hand.

5. After sanding, wood is coated by using special oils to protect it from humidity and prevent it from deteriorating.

6. After that, the work pieces are processed with microwaves for several minutes in order for the oils on the cups to avoid deterioration.

7. Then the cups are covered by hot bee-wax and dried in a special drying chamber for about 1.5 hours. Temperatures may reach 74 degrees centigrade (where it varies from 60 to 74 degrees centigrade depending on the type of wood).

8. Drying is followed by the cups being cooled at room temperature for at least 6 hours. The work piece is ground for the second time, hot wax is again applied; which is again followed by drying the cups at the same temperature 74 degrees, for about 8 hours.

9. The closing stage of the work includes thorough polishing of the cup, laser engraving of the logo and other elements as per the design. In some cases, patina forming treatment is applied for a decorative finish that makes the surface look perfect.
