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?...

Sound & Vision TOP PICK

Expert review by : Mark Fleischmann (

Oppo PM-1 Headphone


Oppo's first headphone, the PM-1, uses a planar diaphragm to produce a luxuriously warm sound that becomes addicting on its own terms.

Planar technology; Rich sound; Understated good looks

Voicing too rich for some; Crosses the $1K barrier

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


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.

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

These are probably among the best headphones ever made by mankind but you're going to need some stellar ears and a bank account to match. The Oppo PM-1 headphones are brilliant, mesmerising and spellbinding. They're magical and captivating and wondrous...

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...
