The Revolutionary ATM Driver Ever
Not like the most headphones, build with dynamic, electrostatic, planar magnetic or ribbon drivers, Gold Planar has introduced the new technology into the HiFi world. AMT means air motion transformer technology which is usually used for tweeters of loudspeakers
DDSB Patented Technology
Adopting the ultra-thin diaphragm material and aviation-grade high-purity aluminium for the structure, along with AMT driver, the area of produced sound by these folds is as much as 6.3 times of the normal planar diaphragm headphone. In enhances the intensity of sound and decreases the distortion
Full Broad Frequency&Noise Filter
GL850 qualifies the standards of Hi-Res audio with 10-40Khz broad frequency response. It has great details and will restore the music to original. Moreover, it adopts the acoustic noise filter which is originated from professional studio set. With it, it can greatly suppress the hiss while the driver works. The sound is more gentle and detailed
Exchangeable Angled Connector&Plugs
The connector on the headphone is designed with some angle so it will greatly reduce the microphonics. Mini XLR balanced gilded plug is stable to use. Included 2 meters 6N OCC silver-plated 8 core XLR balanced cable offers low contact noise. Each details presents our dedication for perfection
Dissymmetry Band&Exchangeable Ear pad
The head band is designed based ergonomics. The dissymmetry design can greatly fit the head shape, thus more comfortable and secure to use. Ear pads is exchangeable and compatible with other products.
Sorry for my bad English. These cans are the best i ever heard. 3d sound from its best.
Goosepumps all over my Body. After 150hours they sound like Heaven.
Thats unbelievable .
The speed, detail retrieval, and transparency of these headphones is unmatched by any electrostatic, dynamic, and planar magnetic headphone as of this time. Next level high resolution indeed.
A headphone that stands on its own. Sounds like nothing i had so far. Interprets the music without "adding its character" - something every heaphone i know does usually...hard to describe...
Height and depth of the soundstage are incredible! Detail retrieval stunning!
First, I bought my GL850s THROUGH LINSOUL, after speaking with Lillian about what was new that might be interesting, so no concerns about "vendor variation".
These are expensive headphones, so I will try to answer the questions that I would want to know the answers to before plunking-down this type of coin...
Are they worth it? To me, Yes! These are "specialty cans" that may also double as daily drivers if you've got nothing else. Why the specialty can classification? Because these headphones have an unusual tuning that is IDEAL for "LIVE" music. Orchestra, folksongs, acapella, and most "analog" sounds are rendered with incredible realism. An Andreas Eastman and a Stentor don't just "play the same notes", I can truly hear that they each have unique tone, resonance, and quality/amount of sustain/dampening. The GL850 makes instruments around like "music" and not just tone generators. I know I'm hearing "An Acoustic BASS", and not just BASS NOTES. I hear A CORONET", and not just BRASS NOTES interchangeable with a trumpet or flugelhorn.
The sound IS BIG, and there is so much going on in complex tracks that I can pick out, but not so much due to compression, (Bringing up the bottom at the cost of dynamic range) but because the instrument or voice separation sets them apart clearly. The stage is "decently-sized", but not huge with a long oval shape. Wide strong left and right with slight forward and definite rear space. Think of an oval and you're in the center when considering the lateral axis, but you're standing 3/4 of the way forward. You still have space in front of you, but most of it is clearly behind you. The GL850 IS NOT A BRIGHT HEADPHONE. I've seen comments all over the place about it, and I can't believe anyone would consider the GL850 bright, so I had to say that's "right out"! The GL850 is mellow and huge and comfy and warm like being smooshed by a huge and thick downy comforter of sound. It's odd because you would think that by this description that things are just a muffled, syrupy mess, but it's not. Detail is very good. Not the most detailed, but good. Clear - not "dry", not "thin", and not "edgy". Just present with no occlusion to any portion of its range detectable. You get everything.
My personal preference is for the perforated pads (As seen in the image above) and not the leather pads mine shipped with installed. I felt the perforated pads opened up the GL850, and made the cans sound less like 2 tower speakers pointed at your head on a 45 degree angle, while only 5-6 inches away from your temples. (The way they sounded to me with the default leather pads.)
Amping is fairly easy, and every dedicated amp I have was adequate to power the GL850. I did ultimately acquire a balanced cable, but it wasn't truly necessary. My favorite setup is DAC: Denafrips Pontus, and Amp: Denafrips Artemis. Though I also thoroughly enjoyed them on my Topping A90, Schiit Asgard 2, Cavalli LCX, and SMSL SP200, as well. Portable amps from my iFi xCAN up to my iCAN, iDSD Micro, and iDSD Micro Black Label all powered the GL850 quite capably as well. While I would avoid driving the GL850 direct from a cellphone, I imagine most reasonably current mainstream DAPs and dongle amps will do at least a passable job or better with the GL850.
