Unique Planar Magnetic Drivers
The Oppo PM-2 employs a planar magnetic driver that sets it apart from the majority of headphones on the market. Sound is generated by a very thin and light diaphragm whose entire surface area is evenly driven. The diaphragm is driven in a symmetric pull-push manner, and the magnetic system and conductor patterns have been optimized for maximum sensitivity and consistency. This allows the diaphragm to generate very stable and linear piston-like vibrations, ensuring phase coherence and high resolution performance with minimal distortion.
Double Sided Spiraling Coils
The diaphragm uses a spiraling pattern of flat aluminum conductors on both sides of the driver. The double-sided design lets twice as many conductors to be placed within the magnetic field, which leads to higher sensitivity, better damping, and even drive force.
Seven Layer Diaphragm
Oppo's planar magnetic driver diaphragm has 7 layers of thin materials that provide excellent performance, reliability, and longevity. The diaphragm's build makes sure that it is very stable under thermal pressure and vibration.
Stability, Consistency & Reliability
Many planar magnetic headphones have large balance digressions between the left and right channels, and accurate sound reproduction is contingent on having a very close match between both. In the PM-2's manufacturing process, the drivers are closely matched to assure optimum stereo imaging and soundstage.
When sound enters your ears, it has a planar wave front with all spectrum components in phase. A typical dynamic headphone driver disrupts this coherence with its phase irregularity, resulting in less than perfect signal peak reconstructions. Oppo's planar magnetic driver has much better phase coherency since all parts of the diaphragm are vibrating together without break up and delayed resonance.
FEM-Optimized Magnet System
A FEM-optimized magnet system with very high energy Neodymium magnets is used to maximize sensitivity and consistency of the applied force over the driver area.
Purely Resistive Impedance
Oppo's planar magnetic driver has a flat conductor pattern that does not have any inductive components. This eliminates inductance related inter-modulation distortion, which is especially prevalent in dynamic drivers with high impedance and a high number of voice coil turns.
Lightweight & Comfortable
With a weight of 385 g, the Oppo PM-2 strikes a delicate balance between weight, comfort, and elegant industrial design. When folded in the included selvedge denim case, the PM-2 takes very little space in a briefcase or backpack.
Quality Materials Utilized
The Oppo PM-2’s earpads are made with the highest quality natural latex, which is superior to and lasts longer than any chemically formulated foam. It is naturally hypoallergenic, retains its mechanical spring-like properties for more time, and resists moisture build up from sweating. The headband and ear cushions are made of carefully selected synthetic leather material.
Robust Build Quality
The PM-2 is strongly constructed with importance given to long term use and maximum consistency from unit to unit. The headphones have also been tested rigorously to withstand mechanical and environmental pressure to guarantee exceptional performance throughout its lifespan.
Easily Replaceable Components
The PM-2’s earpads are mounted on rubber inserts that can be easily cleaned or replaced. This works with the PM-1’s earpads and makes using the PM-1’s lambskin and velour earpads very easy. The headphone cable is detachable and uses 2.5 mm mono mini jacks to connect to the earcups, making it simple to switch between the longer, 6.35 mm jack cable for home use, and a shorter, 3.5 mm terminated cable for portable use.
