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.
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.”
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.
