Yamaha HP-1 Orthodynamic Headphones

Last week I went down to Melbourne for Yamaha’s launch of its new Aventage home theatre receiver range. They also mentioned that they were finding their earphone range quite popular and had introduced a new high-end model, plus a set of conventional on-ear hifi headphones.

Which brought to mind my very first set of headphones, which I bought in the mid-1970s. They were the Yamaha HP-1 Orthodynamic Headphones, which had received an excellent review in Australian HI-FI. I used them for many years, and now my son has them.

And they are still worth something. Looks like someone sold their pair last year for about $75. Not bad after 35 years!

Update: And this morning I received an email from someone who’s interested in buying them! I’ve passed it on to my son, but it’s interesting that there is this interest in vintage equipment.

As to less vintage equipment, anyone like to purchase a Yamaha RX-V3900 home theatre receivers? Fine bit of kit, but I need something now that supports 3D and the Audio Return Channel.
