These headphones are formidable design. The manufacturing finishes are excellent, in the 70's there were not so many cost nor eco-design norms, so we found products with metal finishes or surfaces that used polymers that are no longer used today. Pioneer tried to be in the forefront and offered products like this, result of research and R & D of the time. The E-300 is the third category in the E group with piezoelectric technology that offered that innovation as today offers any study monitor with electronically excited membrane. The years go by and technology leaves behind many products that were innovative in their time. Just one example, Sony released its Trinitron technology, but does anyone today use that technology in their modern TFT, LCD, PLASMA ...? No. Although they were at the time the avant-garde in process of image. Owning the Pioneer SE-300 is just a matter of collecting, use as a curiosity. Used with a good amplifier, playing a vinyl, they will reveal the artifacts and clicks produced by dust motes and small surface scratches due to the ultrasensitive response of the membranes of the SE-300. In high frequencies they reveal an extraordinary detail, it falls short in the low ones, and we have the sensation that they escape. Being open may be the motive. Some owner covered the leak with American tape and enjoyed the bass frequencies remarkably. I have not done it yet. Its value as a collector's item is indisputable: they are rare, different, and very few units should be circulating in good condition. They will not be for everyday use in music, if they are special for radio communication and solving remote frequencies, I would say cosmic.
