Sendy Audio Peacock: Flagship Open-back Planar Magnetic Balanced Headphones
Available with a 24K Gold Finish, Featuring 88mm Quad-Former Drivers, 4.4mm Balanced, 4-Pin XLR and 6.35mm Single-ended Connectors, and Real Zebrawood Housing for £1,300 / $1,499.
Sendy Audio — together with its sister-brand SIVGA — has been producing a range of acclaimed hi-fi headphones with a real-wood finish since 2016, including the recently announced Apollo.
The Peacock are Sendy Audio’s flagship model. A balanced open-back design headphone, featuring 88mm Quad-Former Planar Magnetic drivers, housed in a real zebrawood headphone chamber shell. Available with metal elements finished in either black or gold — with 24K gold-plate featuring on the latter — these stylish headphones are also comfortable to wear, thanks to their real soft-leather headband, and real leather & memory foam earpads.
The Planar Magnetic drivers within the Peacock have been designed in-house by Sendy Audio's engineering team utilising Quad-Former technology. Quad-Former technology adopts dual magnets — alongside a dual-coil, placed either side of a central diaphragm — which ensures extremely low distortion. These drivers, combined with the additional acoustic tuning afforded by the placement of the holes within each of the grilles, and the zebrawood housing, ensure the Peacock deliver a warm, open listen with a wide soundstage, detailed separation and musicality.
The Sendy Audio Peacock comes with a braided 2 metre 4.4mm balanced cable. This 6N OCC cable — comprising 8 strands of braid, with each composed of 30 0.08mm cores and 250D break-proof wire — delivers excellent sound quality from a wide range of sources such as portable DAPs, headphone amplifiers and full-size hi-fi separates. Also supplied with the Peacock are both a 4.4mm balanced to 6.35mm single-ended adaptor, and a 4.4mm balanced to 4-Pin XLR adaptor.
The Sendy Audio Peacock deliver a frequency response of 20Hz - 40kHz, sensitivity of 103dB, and an impedance rating of 50Ω.
