We wrote the first time about Mitchell & Johnson a year and a half ago, a new company that establishes itself in a price range where there is tough competition. They have gradually developed their range of products. We are talking primarily about electronics in the spectrum there including Cambridge Audio dominates - ie budget and mid-range.
But already at that time they also had a headphone up the sleeve, and we showed the image of another model who also had the name HP1, but with a completely different design. Clearly there were a bit of everything along the way, and there is little doubt that the model currently being launched now has a far more appealing design.
HP has adopted a thin membrane of a material they call DYNASTATZ. It is an electrostate, delivering frequencies up to 50kHz. The ear muffs are real wood, which Mitchell & Johnson believes provide good acoustic conditions, as well as each copy gets their own sound signature.
HP1 comes with two different removable and adjustable cables. One for portable use, and fidelity.
- Driver Unit: 40mm EFS 4030 E-STAT type plus Dynastatz flexible transducer.
- Impedance: 32ohm
- Frequency response: 6-45000 Hz
- Sensitivity: 120dB
- THD: <0.5%
Mitchell & Johnson imported to Norway by Moet Audio .
