Review by @LeechTM
„These headphones come with eight different position drivers, all designed by Axel Grail, the guy who made all of your favorite Sennheiser headphones…”
„Packaging-wise, these come in a very sleek, reduced black box that has all the necessary accessories you need for using the heaviest H1H: a USB-C cable for charging, a pretty big user guide for the headphones (which you should actually read), as well as a personal thank-you letter by Axel Grille, an original backup certificate, and of course, the H1Hs themselves. Taking them out of the box, man, they do live up to the name; they are heavier than I expected and they look better as well. Thick, bold, and gigantic cups with a large, soft padded ear cover. Design-wise, I like them.”
„They're primarily designed to make music sound phenomenal. And this claim is backed up by a battery runtime of 50 hours with activated ANC, which in real-world testing gives about 45 hours. So there's plenty of battery to enjoy your favorite tunes. Speaking of listening, let's get into what makes these headphones stand out: the 8 dynamic drivers built into the ear cups. Four on each side. There are four high-frequency tweeters in front of your ears and four mid and lower range speakers placed diagonally to your ears. In comparison, regular headphones often have just one driver.”
„What can you expect from this setup? Less distortion, more clarity, accuracy, and power. To balance this, Heavies also incorporated a proprietary SPL dosimeter technology, which constantly measures the pressure inside the headphones. This means you can crank up the volume without harming your ears, as the technology will regulate it. This combination of features delivers an incredibly distinct sound. It's almost overwhelming, especially at first. Rich bass, clear mids, and powerful guitars are what you get - everything you'd want from headphones designed for metal music. And they aren't just for metal; they're versatile. With the additional drivers, genres like electronic music sound particularly impressive, as do vocals.”
"To wrap things up, are these headphones worth it? For the Kickstarter price of $149, absolutely. Even at the current retail price of $279 (or $239 with a coupon), they offer great value. They might not be the best in terms of ANC or the most sleek in design, but in terms of delivering superb sound quality, especially for metal music, they're unparalleled in their price range."
