Kennerton Vali Headphone Measurements and Mini Review These have already been covered a long while back here: http://www.superbestaudiofriends.or...erton-vali-measurements-and-impressions.3381/ Definitely check those impressions out and I mostly agree with them. I was hoping to get my hands of them, but I never got to it. I was probably busy or something to pass on them. I think @ultrabike did get a chance on them. This pair is different from the pair used in the impressions linked above The build reminds me of another Russian product, the Night Blues Mini / ZDT Jr: weighty, solid, industrial, indestructible, no-nonense. You can beat something to death with these headphones. I like this. The gimbal is adjustable up and down, and can also swivel front and back so we can get even pressure from the pads front and back of the ear. The mechanism can be locked down by tightening the thumb screw. A suspension headphone helps distribute the weight. I wouldn't say the headphones are the most comfortable, but they are not uncomfortable either. I don't have a problem with them. The fit with the pads, which deform just a slight bit, is nice and snug. The one downside is with people with glasses (FYI I now wear glasses). The diameter of the opening and the pressure of the pads pushes the temples of the frame inward and outward. Subjectively, I'm not going to add much more to what was already been said. The tonal balance is mid-centric with the upper registers on the easygoing side, but not excessively so - that is laid back, but not as laid back as Audeze. At times, there a nasal coloration, but this is something that I do not mind, especially on modern recordings pop with emphasized lows and highs. The bass is fast and punchy without excess mid-bloat, and surprisingly extended. In many ways, the Vali reminds me of the Grado RS-1, not in terms of frequency response, but in terms of responsiveness, speed and even timbre. Think of this of the Russian version of the RS-1, but with much better tonal balance and deeper higher quality bass. Resolution is very good. The Vali scaled up with better gear and sources - definitely a treat from a good tube amp. Measurements OTW.
