So it seems that Iron Maiden might be coming back, after being on of the most popular heavy metal bands when I was a kid, a new pair of headphones have been revealed by Onkyo to showcase the band’s mascot, Eddie.
Called the Ed-Ph0n3s, the new headphones are said to be designed specifically for rock and heavy metal music and were even used by the band’s bassist Steve Harris when mixing their new studio album, The Book of Souls, with his own hand-built pair that were tuned to make the most of rock.
Onkyo has now edited these headphones for production, releasing them today and shown off at IFA 2015 this week in Berlin.
In terms of specifications, Ed-Phon3s come with twin 40mm titanium-coated diaphragm drivers, with a frequency response of 10Hz to 27kHz, an impedance of 32-Ohms, pressure level of 105db/nW (Nominal) and are capable of a max input power of 800W.
The headphones have a 3.5mm cable that is sized at 160cm, with a 6.35mm jack adapter in the box. They also weigh 245 grams.
Onkyo has yet to reveal any pricing or release dates for the headphones.
