Sivga waited until the launch of the annual High-End show in Munich to unveil its latest model of Hi-Fi headphones, the SV023. Like many others before it, this newcomer relies on two essential axes of comfort and sound performance to try to find a place for itself. On the first point, the SV023 largely takes up the characteristics of a previous Sivga reference, the P-II, with a double headband system and its ovoid ear cups fitted with very large pads with a particularly curved profile. The suspended headband is made of leather-covered memory foam, while the ear cups are covered with micro-perforated imitation leather on the outer surfaces and velvet on the surface in direct contact with the user. always with memory foam in them.
In terms of sound reproduction, Sivga’s new Hi-Fi headphones rely on its two 50 mm dynamic speakers based on a rather unusual duo (membrane in liquid crystal polymer composite material and Beryllium dome) to promise us “dynamic, expressive sound reproduction, a wide and perfectly airy soundstage”. Here is the sound technical information shared by the manufacturer:
- Frequency response: 20Hz to 40kHz
- Sensitivity: 105dB (+/- 3dB)
- Impedance: 300 ohms
The SV023 only comes with a single balanced 2.5mm sub mini-jack to 4.4mm Pentaconn jack cable. Fortunately, a 4.4 mm jack to 3.5 mm mini-jack adapter and a mini-jack to 6.35 mm jack adapter are provided, in addition to a hard carrying case.
The Sivga SV023 will soon land on the market, at a selling price which should be around 500 €, the same launch price as its companion Apollo presented recently by Sendy Audio, Sivga’s sister company.
