Cherry Wood Enclosures, Electrostatic Sound

From Mitchell & Johnson, an exciting new hi-fi company out of London, the JP1 allows you to enjoy the sound of an electrostatic headphone without having to own a specialized electrostatic amplifier. It does this with an electret driver, which works like an electrostatic driver but is permanently charged using a special diaphragm that can store and utilize this charge in everyday use. And the JP1 has the looks to match the sound, with its swiveling ear cups made of high-quality cherry wood. Tuned especially for DJ and live use, these headphones boast a high SPL for loud environments and a detachable woven cloth cable.

“One of the Best”

Giving the JP1 a five out of five, Head-Fi reviewer enjie says: “These hybrids are a treat to the ears. Devoid of the mid-bass muddle we always wanted not to hear, the JP1s are without a doubt one of the best headphones I have auditioned. I am truly blessed to own a pair.”

About Mitchell & Johnson

The headphone company was founded in London in 2012 by two longtime audiophiles, Paul Mitchell and David Johnson. Both born in the ‘60s, their musical tastes were heavily influenced by great British rock bands like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, and the Who. In the ‘70s, there was punk rock; in the ‘80s, Synth Britannia; and in the ‘90s, Britpop bands like Oasis and Blur. Inspired by their shared love of music, Mitchell and Johnson started the company to help others recreate the concert and music festival experience in their homes.

There is no real benefits using a balanced cable with heaphones. It is more related to the amp build and what the HP can take. Balanced vs Single Ended requires twice the circuity as the "hot" + and "cold" - are separated and managed by there own amp and OPA sections. True differential DAP starts with separated dac rails for the + and -. The end of it is, in theory better dynamics, better noise level with a lower noise floor. From the amp point of view it means more power. Some BTL (stereo to mono) switching give a amp 3 times more power to one channel. For example, 2x 150w give 1x 450w at the same 8 ohm load. Things are different with HP because the load is not like on loudspeakers. But the idea is more or less the same. The difference is that a HP needs to get balanced connectors also inside the cups. If the HP is not designed to get balanced connections, therefore signal, it can have some problems. It may show problems to the amp too because the grounding won't work as designed on the devices. The opposite is safe though, but still meaningless. Like balanced output from SE amps. No benefits except that you can also use this cable on a true balanced designed amp. If it uses a 4 pin stereo balanced XLR, the plug is usually better build and locked when plugged in. Electronically ... because the amp is SE, no difference, nor any difference in the way the HP will sound. Because the JP1 is not designed for balanced use, it is safe to stay in SE mode. Plus, the JP1 is easy to drive and in most cases the extra gain and power from a balanced amp is not necessary.
