Onkyo ES-HF300 and ES-FC300 On-Ear Headphones

Onkyo ES-HF300

Onkyo Headphone DriverOnkyo has entered the headphone market, introducing two closed-back on-ear models. The ES-HF300 (pictured above) features a audiophile-grade cable, while the ES-FC300 is packaged with a tangle-free elastomer cable. These folding on-ear headphones use two wide-range 40 mm titanium drivers, which Onkyo says delivers stunning clarity in the mid- and high-frequency bands. Onkyo’s unique ported bass sub-chambers, meanwhile, help define a deep, muscular bottom-end response. The aluminum driver housing (shaped to resemble the volume control on Onkyo’s hi-fi and A/V components) and single aluminum hanger presents a clean, understated profile.

Onkyo ES-HF300 Cable

Onkyo is offering the ES-HF300 (pictured above) with a 6N oxygen-free copper cable encased in clear elastomer, providing almost perfect conductivity while keeping touch noise to a minimum. Gold-plated MMCX connectors and mini-stereo plug reflect the highest build standards.

Onkyo ES-HC300

The ES-FC300 (pictured in white above) is available in three striking finishes: black with a red cable, white with a white cable, and violet with a violet cable (pictured below). It features an elastomer cable with a flattened cross-section to minimize tangles—a feature that essentially eliminates a common annoyance to real-world headphone enthusiasts. Both the high-quality copper and flat elastomer cables will be available for separate sale should the user wish to upgrade or seek a replacement, thereby extending the life of the product.

Onkyo ES-FC300 Cables

Two aluminum in-ear models—the IE-HF300 ($129) and IE-FC300 ($99), are scheduled for release over the coming months. Powered by a 14.3 mm dynamic transducer, these in-ear headphones balance silky bass with an open and natural mid range. The IE-HF300 is packaged with audiophile-grade 6N copper cable, while the IE-FC300 comes with red, violet, or white tangle-free elastomer cable.

Also in the development pipeline is a powerful headphone equalizer app for smartphone and tablet, allowing users to quickly and precisely adjust frequency response to suit their personal taste. The app is designed to partner Onkyo’s headphone line, granting smartphone and tablet users unparalleled control over their audio.
