The KingSound KS-H3 electrostatic headphone is a revolution in terms of sound quality.
When it comes to a headphone which offers a soundstage which truly makes it feel as if you could be listening to a life performance of your favourite music, the KingSound KS-H3 electrostatic headphones are the best on the market. They outperform their competition to such a degree that music from any other source sounds diffuse and muted after using them.
Added to this, the lightweight and comfortable design make these headphones great to wear for long periods of time, and they have a sleek, industrial look which makes them feel fresh and stand out from the crowd. They have open ear-cups, meaning that you have the ability to still hear what is going on around you – making them a perfect choice to watch films with.
For me, one of the most useful features of these headphones was the ability to listen to music at a reasonably low volume without losing the detail of the music. This is great, as it allows you to keep noise levels at a controllable level while still letting you hear each part of the music distinctly.
One of the few downsides to the Kingsound KS-H3 electrostatic headphones is that they do not come with a standard 3.5mm or 6.3mm headphone plug. They are electrostatic headphones, and so must be used with an amp designed specifically for this use. There are two available for use from KingSound – the M-10 solid-state amp and the M-20 tube amp. Be aware that the amp gets hot to the touch after just half an hour of use – making it less than ideal for use on the move.
Nor are these headphones cheap – which is unsurprising, given the quality of sound you receive from them. The headphones on their own are $875, and if you need to include the amp you can have the headphones and the M10 solid-state amp for $1,250, or a similar bundle with the M-20 tube amp instead for $2,150.
