Oppo’s new PM-3 planar magnetic headphone – seen here in a variety of colour options

 

Following the success’ of its PM-1 and PM-2  planar magnetic headphones Oppo recently announced the release of another two ‘head-fi’ products – the PM3 headphone and its matching HA-2 portable  headphone amplifier.

 

Oppo describes the new PM-3 as a lightweight, closed – back planar magnetic headphone designed for maximum performance and portability.  Also made for easy transportability the  matching HA-2 headphone amplifier features a built-in rechargeable battery that allows it to be easily paired with mobile phones and portable music players.

 

According to Oppo the PM-3, like the PM-1 and PM-2 before it features the closed -back planar magnetic design because this technology is found to offer the best combination of lightweight, high sensitivity and  excellent sound quality – three of the most desirable feature in high performance headphones.

 

The closed-back planar magnetic headphone is said to offer a high level of audio accuracy

 

In addition, the  closed-back feature allows a much higher degree of external noise isolation than would otherwise be possible with conventional headphone designs.

 

‘A direct benefit of closed-back planar magnetic headphones, because of its effectiveness in isolating colouration inducing external noises is its very high level of sonic accuracy, ‘   says Kenneth Lim, the local Oppo spokesman.

 

For those seeking to significantly improve performance of typical smart phones or portable music players the HA-2,  says Oppo, should prove to be an excellent choice

 

A solid, hefty yet lightweight device the HA-2 features a hybrid class AB amplifier and a USB DAC that supports 384 khz PCM as well as DSD256  making it compatible with Apple’s i as well as Android devices.

 

A 3.5mm input allows the HA-2 to work with players that do not have USB compatible digital outputs.

 

Convenience features include lightning fast rapid charging and a mobile device power bank.
