New Magnetostatic Headphones "Peacock" from Sendy Audio

The magentostatic headphones "Peacock" are the new flagship model of Chinese manufacturer Sendy Audio. The newly developed membranes are said to be exceptionally thin and light, while the "quad former technology" is supposed to guarantee excellent energy conversion.

The membrane of the new Sendy Audio headphones has been improved over two years of development, and is said to offer an ideal compromise between stability and weight. This makes it very thin and light, which is supposed to allow the Peacock to handle frequencies of up to 40 kHz with high power handling and impulsivity.

The Peacock also features what is called "quad former technology". Therein, the magnetostatic driver consists of double magnets plus double coil sides on the membrane as well as double coils on each side of the diaphragm. The total of four coils per side of the membrane are supposed to produce the same vibration everywhere at an identical frequency. Meanwhile, the double-sided magnet provides a uniform magnetic force in the field. This is said to result in excellent magnetic energy conversion, good consistency as well as low distortion.

The housing is precision CNC machined and aims to provide a vibration-free working environment for the membrane as well as the coils. The cover on the side of the headphones, which gives the Peacock its name, is also gold-plated. A sanded, lacquered and polished wooden shell has been placed around it.

As accessories, the magnetostatic Peacock comes with a high-quality, approx. 2m long cable with 4.4mm Pentaconn plug, as well as adapters for 4-pin XLR and 6.3mm jack for connection to a wide variety of headphone amplifiers.

The new headphones Sendy Audio Peacock are available now* for around €1500*.
