Lightweight, handcrafted, flagship sound
The brand new Spirit Torino Pulsar was just presented at the HighEnd Munich 2022.
As the "twin sister" of the Valkyria, it offers exactly the same high-end drivers, but is made of the highest quality aluminum instead of titanium. The Valkyria's cable has been replaced with a simpler yet very high quality silver-coated copper cable. Instead of a walnut box, the Pulsar comes in Spirit Torino's premium packaging, in which the Twin Pulse, for example, is also delivered.
The Pulsar is completely handmade in Turin, Italy, only the drivers are from the South African supplier who have favourited Earpads by Dekoni specially made for Valkyria and Pulsar.
The aluminum used instead of titanium is processed and anodized by a specialist based in Turin in a complex process in order to achieve a perfect and durable finish. The headband made of the finest Italian leather or suede is also made locally and our customers are free to choose the color and design.
Just like the Valkyria, each Pulsar is custom built for our customers and made to their specifications. This is not assembly line or machine work, this is Italian craftsmanship at the highest level. You can see, feel and hear that
Andrea Ricchi's vision was to offer a more affordable model after his ultimate "cost-no-object" headphone Valkyria, which does not compromise on workmanship and sound. He succeeded with the Pulsar!
The Pulsar has the same wonderfully natural and organic sound signature as its sister, the Valkyria. The differences are material-related, since titanium and aluminum have different vibration and vibration characteristics. have resonance behavior.
The cable used also plays a role here. While the Valkyria uses a copper wire core and pure silver jacket, the Pulsar uses a simpler, silver-plated copper wire but uses the same high-quality connectors.
The resulting sound of the Pulsar is a little more airy with a little more treble extension and minimally slimmer bass. The Valkyria goes to work with a little more verve and power, while the Pulsar appears a little more light-footed. Both models have the same level of authority and naturalness.
The two turret drives with their exceptional weight/power ratio, each generated by 10 powerful neodymium magnets, are arranged to concentrate all magnetic flux on the voice coil and the patented isobaric power supply to the limits of audibility which necessitated the selection of electronic components with an absolutely black background for the pairing.
