5th May 2015 – Norwich UK – Hot on the heels of rolling out its HA-2 portable headphone amplifier, OPPO Digital (www.oppodigital.co.uk), the renowned manufacturer of high performance universal Blu-ray disc players and Planar Magnetic headphones, has released the PM-3 Classic Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones, adding another perfect companion for music on the go.
The OPPO PM-3 Classic combines true audiophile performance, elegant styling, noise isolation and portability into a pair of sleek lightweight planar magnetic headphones. With the PM-3 Classic, users can easily recreate the experience of listening to live music or a high quality 2-channel speaker system in a portable form factor that can be taken anywhere. Weighing just over 10 oz., the PM-3 Classic is the world’s lightest closed-back planar magnetic headphone design. This makes the PM-3 Classic the ideal headphones for anyone on the go. Its elegant styling and exquisite workmanship make the headphones a pleasure to wear, and it is easy to listen for hours on end thanks to its lightweight and exceptional comfort. The closed-back nature of the PM-3 Classic provides isolation from the outside world, blocking out the surrounding noise while avoiding sound leakage from the headphones.
Key features of the PM-3 Classic include:
- Excellent sound quality from planar magnetic drivers
- Closed-back design for privacy and noise isolation
- High sensitivity, light weight and comfortable fit
- Elegant styling and exquisite workmanship
The OPPO PM-3 Classic utilises planar magnetic drivers that are derived from the company’s range-topping EISA award-winning PM-1 headphones. Technological breakthroughs achieved during the PM-1’s development, such as the 7-layer double-side voice coil diaphragm design and FEM-optimized neodymium magnet system, have enabled OPPO to reduce the weight of the planar magnetic drivers while maintaining excellent sound quality and high sensitivity. This driver would not have been possible without the breakthroughs achieved in the PM-1’s driver design.
In the PM-3 Classic’s planar magnetic driver, a very thin and light diaphragm, which is driven in a symmetric pull-push manner, generates sound and the magnetic system and conductor patterns have been optimised for maximum sensitivity and consistency. This allows the diaphragm to generate very stable and linear piston-like vibrations, ensuring phase coherence and high-resolution performance with minimal distortion.
The PM-3 Classic driver’s smaller size and high sensitivity overcome the shortcomings of traditional planar magnetic technology, such as being difficult to drive and heavy weight. This all-new 55mm diameter circular driver is especially suitable for the lightweight close-back design of the PM-3 Classic, allowing it to maintain the very natural and smooth sound signature of the PM-1 and tuned to have deep, tight bass and a touch of excitement.
With its deep bass, smooth midrange and clear treble, the PM-3 Classic delivers a very natural and balanced sound with plenty of emotion and impact. Available across Europe now from authorised OPPO resellers, a list of which can be found on the “Where to Buy” section of OPPO Digital’s web site, the PM-3 has a retail price of £349.00 and comes with four cables – one long cable for home use and three portable cables (iOS device compatibility / Android device compatibility / straight cable) for use with mobile devices/music players.
