RAAL SR1a Ribbon Headphone Review by Tech Collector

by Justin Wilson August 03, 2020 1 Comment

The Tech Collector wearing RAAL SR1a

We sent a demo system of the RAAL-requisite SR1a Ribbon Headphone with the Schiit Jotunheim R DAC/Amp over to our friend The Tech Collector on YouTube. We actually had no idea he was going to make a video review of the system, but the RAAL SR1a has a tendency to leave a strong impression on people.

If you are seriously into headphones (or speakers) these ribbon headphones are something you'll want to experience.

The Tech Collector says "it is a headphone that in my experience outdoes 99% of what I have heard across any headphones in the 20 years that I’ve collected headphones. I’ve had all the big ones, I’ve had the Sony R10, the classic Grados, a lot of the STAX like the SR-009..."

Check out the full review of the RAAL SR1a below.

I have never owned “high-end” headphones before purchasing the SR 1a’s. I decided to take advantage of Raal Requisite’s 14-day return policy. I do not know why Raal Requisite bothers with a 14-day return policy, they are end game headphones. These “ear monitors” are incredible sounding. The detail and soundstage are something I have never experienced in my 40 years plus of being an audiophile. You can listen to these ear monitors for hours, they are quite comfortable. I am driving them with the Schiit Jotunheim R Headphone amplifier = Nirvana!
