Kennerton Odin Planar Magnetic Headphones

Kennerton Odin Thridi is the first planar headphone model of Kennerton. For several years of its existence, this model has deservedly won the hearts of quality sound lovers all over the world. And it has taken its worthy place among the best headphones in the world. A few years later, new models of planar headphones were released – Kennerton Thror and Kennerton Thridi, which were a further development of the already legendary Kennerton Odin model. But many fans of the unique sound of that old classic Kennerton Thror have repeatedly asked us if it is possible to expect the updated Kennerton Odin to appear. 

WHY PLANAR MAGNETIC?

In our eyes, we see the perfect headphone as a cross-breed of the dynamic and electrostatic technologies combined into one. Whereby taking the airy and extremely detailed sound of an electrostatic driver, and combining it with the power and impact of a dynamic transducers. This enables us to achieve a sound that’s both natural and engaging.
 
When we looked at the market to see what our competitors have been producing in the last couple of years, we were surprised to find that the most recent planar magnetic headphones all had the same design and thus also shared the same flaws. This indicated to us that the 35-year old planar magnetic technology hasn’t evolved with time.
 
We got to the drawing board and started to make our own drivers from scratch. One of our core goals was to minimize internal structure resonances and optimize sound wave patterns, in order to create a clear, low-distortion sound frequency. To achieve this, we created several patent-pending core innovations. Its magnetic structure is designed to eliminate both unwanted resonances, and unify magnetic field distribution over the total frequency range.
 

SO WE STARTED MAKING OUR OWN DRIVER FROM SCRATCH.

Our drivers are solely designed and produced in Russia, which involves a facility that also work for the aerospace and military industries, which ensures the highest quality and durability of our headphones.
  • A new 80mm planar-magnetic driver, with every aspect of this technology being implemented, such as phase coherence, flat impedance and a low-mass diaphragm.
  • Multi-layer 10µm polyimide film diaphragm, tested to have the highest reliability and longevity in the most extreme environmental conditions.
  • FEM-Optimized Magnet System with 10 neodymium magnets arranged in symmetric push-pull configuration.
  • Unique semicircular bar magnets.
  • A semicircular form therefore has many advantages over the ordinary rectangular shaped bar magnets: It gives a more uniform magnetic field, greatly reduces internal resonances and produces an optimal sound.
  • Our driver allows greater sensitivity, thanks to its powerful magnets and low-mass diaphragm. It can therefore be easily driven by portable devices.
