Onkyo ES-HF300 On-Ear Headphones Review

Audioholics
18 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Electronic music in particular is easily skewed by the modern headphone design tendency to present too much bass for impact (which might impress during a short audition). But Onkyo doesn’t fall victim to this and backs up its promise to fully control low frequencies and add weight and dynamism on all types of music. Onkyo’s foray into the headphone market is a huge success in personal hi-fi.
  • Pros: Portable, easy storage, low power requirements - perfect for mobile devices, Warm, easygoing sound for music, Bass delivers but thankfully not too overboard, At $179 one of the best buys in personal hi-fi
  • Cons: While not "noise cancelling", closed-back design's acoustic isolation could be troubling while on a walk, Bass can be overwhelming if you're not inclined to enjoy a bit of boom, Over ear design fits snugly, the large headed among us might find them too tight

Onkyo ES-HF300 Headphone

Sound & Vision Magazine
24 October 2013
  • Excerpt: We are living in a golden age for headphones. New models and even types of headphones are announced, and a month or two later, there’s another deluge. The waves of entry-level, midrange, and high-end models never let up. But even in the midst of headphone mania, Onkyo’s ES-HF300 distinguishes itself on a number of counts.

Review: Onkyo ES-HF300 Headphones

Sound & Vision Magazine
13 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Anyone familiar with Onkyo products will recognize the design.  With an on-ear design, the headphone is inspired by the knobs on Onkyo's hardware – sleek, sturdy, and dare I say, sexy. Aesthetically, they have a luxurious look, a far cry from the glossy plastic look that's popular these days.  A brushed and burnished aluminum and PET housing and band with impact-resistant qualities protect your investment.  The headband is padded and adjustable.

Onkyo ES-HF300 review

2 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Onkyo certainly won't be the first name that springs to mind when you think headphones; the ES-HF300 are the Japanese company's first pair. Designed for mobile listening, rather than as an accessory for Onkyo's home cinema amplifiers, they have a detachable, cable that promises excellent sound quality as well as added durability.

REVIEW: Onkyo ES-HF300 over-ear headphones

Tech Digest
26 April 2013
  • Summary: Onkyo’s first foray into headphones is a great success. Sounding and looking beautiful, all that’s missing from the package is an in-line remote for mobile playback control. A well balanced tuning, they’ll compliment many different genres of music, and look cool while you listen. They’re not cheap, and it may be worth giving the lower-end ES-FC300s a try if you’re counting the pennies, but splurging the extra cash here won’t leave you disappointed.

Onkyo ES-HF300 review

expertreviews.co.uk
17 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Onkyo, the Japanese A/V manufacturer best known for its stellar range of home theatre amplifiers, has launched its first range of headphones in the UK. With closed back 40mm titanium drivers, the on-ear ES-HF300's are designed to be taken on the move, rather than just for listening in the house, and include a detachable 'audiophile' grade copper cable for the best possible sound quality.
