New Oppo teaser on Twitter claims “best audio quality”

Yesterday Oppo published a new teaser on their Twitter account. The image shows a wooden-style box along with the announcement “best audio quality”. Now what does this mean? Rumors are going on that it might be a new phone with some special hi-fi features, similar to some Vivo phones. This certainly would be nice and would make use of the new MAXX-Audio feature they are touting. But the Oppo Find 7 is already offering quite an amazing audio quality, so will they really launch a new phone?

Gizchina News of the week

Well, probably not. We rather believe that Oppo will launch a new model of their PM-1 high-end headphones or some limited edition model of the same product. The PM-1 headphones have actually been around for quite a while and are based on something called “planar magnetic technology” allowing them to generate the sound through a thin diaphragm, more details here. “Best Audio Quality” won’t come cheap though as the PM-1 are sold at $1,099 a pair!

So well, lets just wait and see what it will be. Oppo is supposed to release more information within this day.

    It’s a teaser for the Oppo PM-2, a “budget” edition of the PM-1, priced at around 699$. Would love to get my audiophile ears on a pair of them (or the PM-1), but that price tag is killing me.

      Bit weird that they still use the extravagant box for PM2, a supposedly cost-cutting edition of PM1.

        Why not? It is looking quite nice 🙂

          Yeah it is but I had thought that the packaging will be the first to suffer, but great if it’s not since it’s still a $699 headphone after all.

    Did they release the oppo dac yet?
    The hifiman he560 is supposedly better and cheaper. And they’ll have to go some to beat Vivo for an SQ phone.

    I have a Sennheiser HD800 headphone I bought for the same price as Oppo. I read reviews from Audiophilles that the Oppo is very close to Sennheiser HD800. Normally HD 800 cost a few hundred dollars buy.
