    PUTTING THE SE-MASTER1 TO THE TEST WITH AIR STUDIOS

    AIR Studio’s technical director Tim Vine-Lott was integral in the tuning of the SE-MASTER1s. Tim’s discerning ears helped us to compare the headphones to premium reference speaker systems and identify the adjustments needed to ensure the headphones delivered the same sound quality. This process of fine-tuning was repeated until the headphones met AIR Studio’s high standard, delivering faithful reproduction of all sound sources – from the most subtle highs to the deepest bass.

I’ve tuned many audio products in the past, but tuning the SE-MASTER1s was an interesting and challenging experience, completely different to working with amplifiers and speakers. Headphones have none of the adjustable electric circuits you’d find in amplifiers or speaker systems, and the smallest change could have unexpected effects on sound quality- e.g. if we slightly altered the size of the hole controlling the backpressure of the driver units. But , working with Pioneer’s engineers, we were able to achieve the best sound quality. I really hope everyone will enjoy the wonderful sound of the SE-MASTER1.

As technical director at AIR Studios, Tim Vine-Lott has been involved in producing countless albums for artists and soundtracks for films. Responsible for granting AIR Studio Certification to audio visual products that pass strict standards, he works with Pioneer in tuning our amplifiers, speakers and now headphones.
