Introducing the SIVGA SV023: Open-back Balanced Wooden Hi-Fi Headphones

Featuring 50mm Custom Drivers, 4.4mm Balanced & 3.5mm Single-ended Connectors, and real Walnut Wood Housing for £449/$449

Since 2016, SIVGA has been producing a range of acclaimed hi-fi headphones with a real-wood finish, including the recently announced closed-back Oriole and Robin.

Delivering a spacious soundstage with excellent separation, and a rich, warm musicality, the SIVGA SV023 are an open-back design with 50mm dynamic drivers which have been specially designed and engineered by SIVGA in-house.

Larger drivers can sometimes deliver a significant increase in headphone weight. However, with the SIVGA SV023, the dedicated engineering team has delivered a custom driver within an ergonomic headphone design weighing just 318g. Housed in a real walnut wood headphone chamber shell, the drivers are comprised of a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) composite cone with a Beryllium-plated centre. The SIVGA SV023 deliver a frequency response of 20Hz - 40kHz, sensitivity of 105dB, and an impedance rating of 300Ω.

With soft memory-foam earcups, perforated with air holes to ensure both improved sound-quality and breathability — and a real leather and stainless steel headband, that delivers just the right amount of clamping force without unnecessary pressure — the SIVGA SV023 not only feel lightweight, but are comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.

The SIVGA SV023 comes with a braided 2 metre 4.4mm balanced cable. This 6N OCC cable — with 4 strands of braid, each composed of 30 0.08mm cores and 250D break-proof wire — delivers excellent sound quality from balanced sources such as portable DAPs and headphone amplifiers. Also supplied are both a 4.4mm balanced to 3.5mm single-ended adaptor, and a 3.5mm to 6.35mm adaptor; allowing the SIVGA SV023 to be used with a host of devices, including traditional hi-fi separates, laptops and smartphones.

SIVGA SV023 are available now, priced £449/$449
