Review headphone Lear Kaleido — kaleidoscope sound

The company Lear in the past have pleased lovers of quality sound headphones, perfectly combines the price and quality, it is worth remembering at least their AE1d. Not alien to them were experiments that resulted in the headphones surround sound NS-U1. The last time I watched the news, but it’s time to fix it, today we talk about a hybrid model Lear Kaleido.

If to judge “on spec”, the headphones are quite typical: three emitter, dynamic woofers and a pair of reinforcing on the midrange and treble, specially designed three-band electronic crossover and acoustic low cut filter to make it all work together… the Main interest here is what I did headphones in Lear because they know how to surprise and sound, and price. The latter, incidentally, turned out very affordable, generic version costs about $ 216, custom $ 40 more expensive, which is also quite accessible, if you decide to go the “difficult way”.

Specifications

  • Emitters: 7 mm dynamic + 2 x balanced armature
  • Frequency range: 10 Hz – 20 kHz
  • Impedance: 10Ω @ 1 kHz
  • Sensitivity: 109 dB/mW
  • Cable: removable, with MMCX connectors
  • Plug: 3.5 mm TRS

Packing and delivery

Box have Lear enough standard, black thick cardboard, low printing. Inside, of course, there are headphones, a convenient “Bank” of plastic with soft-touch effect for storage, cable, four pairs of silicone ear tips of different sizes, a pair of foams and cloth to care for Kaleido.

In General, without any frills, but everything you need is here, and complete “bancofrances” is very convenient in daily use.

Design and comfortable wearing

That appearance is the main feature of Kaleido. In Lear rightly decided that they need to stand out, and made for this model is very stylish faceplate justifying the model name. Multicolored shimmering pieces of foil (that’s where it goes old rain trees) give your headphones a bold look, but still manage to look dirty.

In the rest of the Kaleido — a fairly standard model: housings made from acrylic in the style of “a universal version of the custom bikes”. The housing is made anatomical in shape, with the right corner of the sound channel and compact enough size they normally get in the ears of almost any size. Soundproofing is slightly below the average for the form factor, but for public transport, and just the bustling streets.

If suddenly the basic version of the design is something you do not like it, it offers plenty of options for customization (different color shells, unusual faceplate), but it will have to pay a little extra.

Of course, Kaleido equipped with a replaceable wire. In this case, using MMCX connectors, and here, perhaps, lies the main ergonomic drawback of this model. The fact that used on the wire by default, the connectors are large enough, and a typical behind-the-ear fit for wearing cable protrudes forward too. Fortunately, regular leads provided by the sites of memory foam, so cool they are turning down, it is possible to ensure proper fixation of the wire. The cable is good in quality and durability, but tough enough, that there is an easy MIC effect, but it almost completely eliminates behind-the-ear wearing.

Overall, I would Kaleido immediately ordered additional wire is softer, but their selection is great, and the price is affordable.

Sound

To listen following equipment was used.

  • Yulong DA9 and Resonessence Labs Concero HP in the role of DAC and amplifier
  • Apple MacBook Pro Retina 2016 as the source
  • Fidelia in the role of player
  • Lotoo PAW Gold, theBit OPUS#2, Astell&Kern, A&ultima SP1000 and the role of other portable players
  • Recording high-resolution Lossless-formats (Dr. Chesky have The Ultimate Headphone Demonstration Disc and others)

Before listening headphones were heated for 72 hours.

In making Kaleido slightly spaced from the sound of “typical” hybrids (the accented bass + bright and detailed mid/treble), Lear decided to make them softer and more comfortable, having a model for those who do not like sharp and aggressive midrange. Of course, it comes complete with a V-shaped frequency response with emphasis on bass and treble.

Bass in Kaleido is not the fastest, but not slowest, it has a nice weight, but not lubricated and normally transmits texture. The bass has a decent (but not transcendent) depth hlestkost a little sacrificed for the sake of massiveness, but without much inflection.

The middle is expected for headphones with a V-shaped frequency response, laid by the wayside, and sometimes I would like a little more presence, but in most cases it is still enough. Of course, this is not a model for the lovers of contrast, they play more at the macro level, although in most cases the permission of the midrange enough. The V-shaped frequency response headphones do a good job with the construction of an imaginary scene (and this despite the accented bass), vocals slightly extended forward on the background instruments, which creates the effect of separation. The width of an imaginary scene somewhere in the middle, but the instruments are transmitted reliably.

Treble is slightly accentuated, they are bright and festive, but not overly, for my taste, probably not. For RF sensitive people headphones probably won’t fit, but for the other listeners “top” there will be quite harmonious, in spite of the simplicity of the attenuation and separation of layers, resolution treble are fine, and they do their role of a balancer bass. In General the upper half of the frequency response here is characterized by enjoyable for this price range natural.

In this price range offhand I remember one model Dunu Falcon-C, they are more detailed and dry sounding, but their lower midrange sound more lightweight. To do detailed comparisons at this time I will not, Kaleido — enough taste to paint and model comparison in the spirit “is not like” I’m a big sense do not see.

Compatibility

Headphones are very sensitive, low impedance so they can be used with simple sources like mobile phones and tablets. Since the model has tasty flow, top sources it is clearly not necessary, the main thing — that the background noise level was lower, however, due to the nature of the flow, the noise is not emphasized.

Stylistically, of course, the model is best suited for styles that benefit from accentuated bass and edgy treble, but, as always, the main criterion will be subjective preferences of the listener. The quality of the material the model is quite tolerant, somewhere in 5 points on a 10-point scale of “fault-finding”.

Of course, some tracks for example

Marcus Miller — Blast. What could be more common in jazz and headphones with a delicious bass? Of course Marcus Miller! Renowned jazz bassist who worked with a succession of stars from Herbie Hancock to miles Davis, pleased with the solo albums. Well, Kaleido help to open up his works in full: juicy bass and great volume of the rest of the range.

Sade — Smooth Operator. Forgive me, fans of unusual and new, but after hearing this remaster performed Kaleido, I just couldn’t resist, I think, after listening, anyone would understand why. To do this, in General, not necessarily to have themselves IEM, but the result, of course, will be better. Smooth-feed Smooth Operator.

Michael Jackson — Billie Jean. You can refer to the king of pop, his life and work, but the one to take away his not — very nice, just a reference-quality recording. Although given Quincy Jones a different result could be. By the way, in fact this track will clearly not be called primitive or boring, there are wonderful backing vocals, and unusual solo parts with different instruments, appearing and disappearing like a kaleidoscope… to the filing of the heroes of this review, this music is very suitable.

Insights

Lear once again released a very unusual but nice sounding model for lovers of slightly softened flow, perfectly suitable for the taste of listening to many styles. Spectacular design and sleek design are additional bonuses of this model.

  2. This is good insight for my followers, so I’ll share this article and you will probably get some extra readers It’s a step up from anything else I’ve seen discussing this subject TY for the inspired info!

  3. Wow, this was cool Keep writing this kind of texts, you will get a lot of people to this text if you continue doing this I will be visiting this website more often thx!

  4. Hey, how’s it going?

    Did you hear that the powers that run this world want to put a RFID microchip in our body? It will contain not only our bank accounts but our personal information, making us total slaves to the elite This will cause us to lose even more of our privacy

    Did you know that this RFID microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18?

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency It’s amazing that the Bible foretold a cashless society!

    Did you also hear that the Jewish people are in the process of bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible by the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and Apostle Paul? They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the whole world under a one world igion They are not even hiding this information, but are actually promoting it You can view videos about this on YouTube

    When Donald Trump made Jerusalem captial of Israel in late December 2017, the Jewish people said this was a big step for them to build this Third Temple They even printed a Temple coin with president Trump’s face on the front with king Cyrus'(the man who built the Second Temple in the Bible) face behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the Third Temple They are selling these coins to raise money to build the Temple

    People have been saying for many years that the end is near, but we needed not only the Third Temple, but also the technology for there to be a cashless society for the Mark of the Beast to be a reality

    There is much more to know, please visit WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM to see all the proof!

    GOD BLESS, JESUS LOVES YOU!

  5. Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks

  6. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it!
