These Sendy Audio Peacock Planar Magnetic headphones are wood as gold

The Sendy Audio Peacock headphones with braided cables

Sonic specialist Sendy Audio, which has been making waves with Hi-Fi headphones distinguished by their real-wood finish, has released the Peacock, a flagship pair that boast audiophile grade Planar Magnetic drivers.

With a balanced open-back design, these are definitely not commuting cans, but if you want to relax at home with Debussy and a dram, then read on…

Sporting 88mm Quad-Former Planar Magnetic drivers, and streaked zebrawood ear shells, the Peacock headphones look suitably extravagant.

We’re told the Quad-Former technology, which employs dual magnets and a dual-coil positioned on either side of a central diaphragm to reduce distortion, delivers a warm, open sound, and copious musicality. Frequency response is cited at 20Hz – 40kHz. 

The chamber shell has metal elements finished in either black or gold, with the latter featuring 24K gold-plate. The ‘phones also feature a luxury leather headband and leather with memory foam earpads.

Just to reiterate, these are not wireless cans. The Peacock comes with a braided 2-metre 4.4mm balanced cable, and ship with both a 4.4mm balanced to 6.35mm single-ended adapter and a 4.4mm balanced to 4-Pin XLR adapter, making them suitable for use with a range of wired sources, including portable DAPs, headphone amplifiers, and hi-fi separates.

Sendy Audio, Chinese sister-brand of SIVGA, will be a new name to many, but we’re already liking their style.  Available now, the Peacock headphones sell for £1,300 ($1,499).
