Planar Magnetic Drivers

Planar magnetic drivers combine characteristics of several driver types. They employ magnetic fields akin to dynamic and balanced armature drivers. However, planar magnetic drivers, like electrostatic drivers, use a flat, thin diaphragm in contrast to a coil. The planar drivers are known for their quick transient response.


Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.


Tangle-Free Cables

Every time you reach for earphone/IEM cables to connect them to your earphones/IEM, no matter how neatly you "wrapped" them up, they end up in a giant Gordian knot of frustration. Tangled cables are the bane of modern existence, and everyone owning a wired pair of earphones/IEM can attest to this.


With advances in cable-making techniques and radical approaches to manufacturing, there are now several solutions to this universal problem. You get Flat cables, Mesh Design cables, cables coated with exterior covers and cables designed with a zipper style design to avoid Tangle and attempt to solve the issue.


Works with Android & iOS

One thing all of our phones have in common is that they have replaced the portable media player. These headphones and devices are perfect to pair with your Android and iOS devices and offer functionality previously unknown. If you’re someone who usually switches between a variety of devices with different OS, then these are suited for you. You can expect these headphones and devices to connect seamlessly without any hassle and even offer OS-specific functionality depending on the device. Headphones and devices designed to work with Android and iOS come in wired and wireless formats. Quite often you will also find Hi-Fi equipment offering direct connectivity to devices with Android and iOS to simplify the connectivity process.


Needs Amplification

If you plug your wired earphones/IEMs directly into your phone or laptop, you are probably not hearing them at their best. This usually happens because the amplifier in your phone or laptop is not capable enough; to drive your earphones/IEMs to their full potential.


A dedicated headphone amplifier is an elegant solution which can power your wired earphones/IEMs to their maximum capability. When you invest in a good pair of wired earphones/IEMs that are hard to drive, it is ideal to get a dedicated "amp" that will make your earphones/IEMs sound even better.

Good quality earbuds

One of the cheapest available ear bud with planar magnetic driver. Sound quality is far better with good bass. Treble is slightly on higher side.

Kz pr 1

It is really good very different sound over all.
For this price unbeatable
For using in iphone i felt the overall volume could be more. May be because of the impedance i guess.
It needs some amp to drive them more

After 7Months of Usage it delivering cracking sound on high mid volume

I have been using the KZ PR1 Hifi edition for 7 months, it has been good, the sound is clear, and all is going well, using it with my Fiio BTR 5 and Tripowin - C8 (Recessed 2Pin/QDC) - Recessed 2Pin/QDC / 2.5mm , don't know all of sudden sound is changed and get irritating by the cracking sound (too much distortion generating when I raise the volume above mid-level.
It doesn't matter what drivers are used whether it is Planar Or Dynamic, we just need a better quality sound,
We are spending Rs.6,500/- for the sake of god sound, but end of the day its been failed,
I also tried to raise the warranty claim through HZ, but there is no response from the HZ team, don't know why they are not responding
Kindly think twice before purchasing the KZ PR1 Hifi edition earphones, do not waste your hard earning money on this fake planar device.
thank you HZ for providing me such a good product, by not responding for warranty claim.
