Oppo PM-1 review


Vivid detail and definition, Warm and rich low end, Subtle, yet accurate treble, Huge sound stage, Pure, distortion-free sound, Comfortable, stylish design

Flimsy headphone cable, Elite price tag

Oppo’s PM-1 succeed on all levels – not bad for the first shot out of the gate. Perhaps just as exciting, the company’s forthcoming PM-2 is priced much more reasonably ($700), and promises comparable sound quality. For those who do a lot of listening...

OPPO PM-1 Planar Magnetic Over-the-Ear Headphones


OPPO, known for their very high quality universal players, has now ventured into another arena: headphones. Their first model, just released, is the OPPO PM-1, which is an over-the-ear design, using planar magnetic drivers. At a time when everyone...

OPPO PM-1 Planar Magnetic Headphones Preview


Preview: OPPO's new PM-1 headphones aren't low budget cans at $1099. Boasting an advanced planar magnetic driver, click to see what else they bring to the table.

We’ll admit it: we’re a little excited to get our hands on these puppies so stay tuned for our forthcoming formal review. OPPO doesn’t have the most diverse product line on the planet, but what they do, they do very well. With a high tech planar...

OPPO PM-1 review: the best sound I’ve ever heard


Read our OPPO PM-1 review to find out why these headphones deliver the best sound we've have ever heard. Meet the mother of all headphones!

No, it’s not the price. We are used to paying premium in this modern day and age, whether it’s your iPhone 6, your Porsche, your designer shoes. We all accept that, and, once we decide we’re willing to spend the extra, we do. The OPPO PM-1 is just the...

I can’t speak for everyone on the team, and, for sure I can’t speak for everyone out there, but, for me, personally, the sound coming out of these headphones is the best sound I have ever heard in my entire life. Are they big? Yes. Are they expensive?...

Oppo PM-1 Over-the-Ear Planar Headphones Reviewed


Up to now, Oppo hasn't been a brand that is usually associated with personal and two-channel audio. Oppo made its name in video with market-leading DVD players and then universal disc players. However, just as man cannot live by bread...

The PM-1s are efficient and easy for even a smartphone amplifier to drive successfully ; These are among the most comfortable headphones on the planet ; They are built to last with pre-tested pivots and yoke

Treble extension is slightly truncated ; The PM-1s, like all open-backed headphones, do little to isolate the listener from their environment ; The packaging is more deluxe than many prospective owners might like

If you are looking for the most revealing, highest resolution headphone regardless of fit or amplifier compatibility, the Oppo PM-1 will probably not make it on your short list. However, if you want easy-to-drive, ruggedly constructed headphones that...

Oppo PM-1 review


Possibly the best headphones ever created by man, but ye gods they're expensive!

Flawless sound ; Easy to drive from phones ; Very comfortable ; Light and balanced ; Amazing build quality

Expensive ; They're not that pretty ; Limited isolation

The Oppo PM-1 headphones are brilliant, mesmerising and spellbinding. They're magical and captivating and wondrous and amazing. I love them.

OPPO PM-1 headphones review


Planar magnetic headphones and loudspeakers are hardly new, with respected designs catching the ears of audio enthusiasts since the 1970s. But they are more difficult and expensive to manufacturer, and have traditionally been insensitive to input...

They come remarkably close to the sound of our beloved Stax electrostatics in some ways, with a little less extreme HF reach although the OPPO PM-1 planar-magnetic headphones stride ahead in respect of their mastery of bass instruments. The build...

Oppo PM-1


Oppo's first pair of headphones are a luxurious, resounding success

Smooth, refined presentation ; Plenty of detail ; Massive scale ; Excellent bass ; Gorgeous build quality

Smooth presentation means they’re not the punchiest

We’re still surprised that Oppo has turned its hand to headphones, but the bigger surprise here is just how great they sound.
