Sivga SV023

More posh for less dosh? – That might be Sivga's new SV023 [€449], an open-backed dynamic headphone with real Walnut housings. Coming from the people behind Sendy Audio, this design sports a 50mm liquid-crystal-polymer driver with Beryllium-coated centre for 105dB sensitivity and 300Ω. There's memory foam, protein leather, stainless steel, aluminium alloy, goat skin and bandwidth to 40kHz. At 318g, this is no heavyweight and standard trim includes a 4.4mm balanced 2m cable, 3.5mm and 6.3mm adapters, a leather carrying case and a hemp bag.
