Pioneer SE-205 headphones. Classic Vintage. HI-FI. Stand and leather box included in the price.
In 1937 Nozomu Matsumoto created the first magnetoelectric speaker in Japan, and a year later, he registered in Tokyo the company with the name Fukuin Shokai Denki Seisakusho. In 1961, the company’s name was changed to Pioneer Electronic Corporation. However, the breakthrough came in 1962, when the company entered the Tokyo Stock Exchange and created the world’s first stereo system with speakers in separate housings. Four years later, Pioneer opened branches in the USA and in Europe. In 1978, the company created one of the best-known and most powerful receivers in its history SX-1980. Pioneer can also be proud of great successes in the world of auto-moto, as it introduced in 1975 the world’s first automotive stereo subassembly, then in 1984 a CD player and GPS navigation in 1990. The company also played a major role in the development of DVDs, plasma TVs and Organic LED display technologies (OLED). The company is currently a part of Pioneer & Onkyo Corporation.
SE-205 is a model produced by Pioneer for over 15 years (in the 70s and 80s). The headphones are equipped with dynamic and large (70mm) speakers ensuring full reproduction of dynamic bass, mid range and precise treble. Due to their design, they effectively reduce external sounds. Another noticeable feature is the elegant and modernist design of this model. The outer part of the ear pad is covered with soft eco leather as are the hand-trimmed pads and sponge on the headband.
The pads were cleaned with specialized formulations, and then properly moisturized and protected with a lotion based on lanolin, aloe, beeswax and Carnauba wax.
Specially designed and hand-made solid headphone stand. The material is high quality solid beech wood, covered with Chinese oil produced from natural oils, which gives the stands a beautiful look and makes them very pleasant to the touch. At the top of the stand, the headband rests on a lining made of natural leather, felt pads have been affixed to the base to prevent furniture scratches.
