The semi-closed headphone Titano was born at the end of a lengthy analysis of the world of listening through headphones. Andrea Ricci in this project changes his design approach from the pure research of faithful sound reproduction to an acoustically tailor-made product able to adapt to the customer’s needs.
In fact, the Titano can transition from a My-fi audiophile key to a reference tool for the sound professional.
Important reasoning has also been devoted to the use of the “Headphone” instrument itself, defining a semi-closed design that allows the enjoyment of the acoustic advantages of an open system while leaking 50% less sound outside the headphone.
This setting allows the user to keep a realistic listening volume without disturbing those nearby, and at the same time creates the art of high-range background noise action essential to fully appreciate the sound details.
The build quality of Super Leggera is insane. Super Leggera are metallic headphones with a leather headband, made by hand in Italy. Super Leggera is the true flagship work here. The cables that the Super Leggera comes with are top-of-the-line cables, made by Portento Audio, also in Italy. It is easily visible that Spirit Torino is not joking about the quality of the components of their IEMs.
Out of the three cables, the XLR one is the least useful, while the 4.4mm Balanced one is the most useful one. To explain a bit, Super Leggera is relatively easy to drive, is also easy to overdrive, but doesn’t distort at really high volumes. You will hear if you’re using too much of something, or if you’re used to playing instruments and know-how something can become overdriven despite not being too loud in terms of loudness. Superleggera prefers higher quality sources and reveals source distortion a bit more than most headphones with this type of signature (natural, warmer).
Ear Cups with Asymmetry for Maximum Comfort
The actual wearing comfort of the Super Leggera is average, with the cups being large enough for the head, but the overall shape pressing a bit on the head. It is an open-back design made to stay open-back. This translates to no passive noise isolation, and extreme amounts of leakage, so they are headphones made to be listened to while you’re alone.
The overall sound of the Super Leggera can be described as natural, sightly thick, well extended both in the bass and the treble, with an amazing level of detail, and an excellent background instrument presentation. There’s a good sense of rhythm and pace, and Super Leggera is super euphonic. They work excellent at both low and medium volumes and don’t change their sound overly much with the volume. Since Super Leggera is a bit easy to overdrive, they do not favor extremely loud listening levels.
The bass is dominated by a really strong sub and mid-bass, while the upper bass doesn’t necessarily color the sound. That really strong sub-bass can be a bit too textured at times and may give the sensation of too much reverberation, but at the same time, it is able to move at the drop of a needle, so it is not distorted, instead of having a unique more rattling kind of presentation that can transfer to the upper bass and lower mids as well. The midrange is slightly colored by the bass with some warmth and thickness. The bass is rounded, deep, and lush.
