We are happy to be now distributing and selling the excellent Sendy headphones.
Sendy phones offer the high value that we look for at Underwood Hifi. They compete with far more expensive headphones and are true Luxury items. These phones reek of high quality.
The Audiophilia review says:
"I found the Sendy Audio Peacock ($1499) to be a full, rich, refined-sounding headphone with a luxurious fit and finish. It could be a great first high-end headphones for anyone put off by the high-resolution arms race going on in the head-fi market these days. On the other hand, headphone collectors looking for something a bit different might seriously consider adding the Peacock to their arsenal. It’s an ideal headphone for any audiophiles who like to unwind and get lost in their music. The Peacock is an impressive release from Sendy that is well worth seeking out."
They gave it an Audiophilia Star Component rating

In the Tone Audio short review they say:
"A few strums into Al DiMeola’s new live recording, Saturday Night in San Francisco is all it takes to reveal the delicacy these new phones from Sendy Audio possess. While not having the last 5% of sheer speed and transparency that the best ESL phones have, the Peackocks are extremely musical and inviting overall. There’s a slightly warm tonality going on here that will keep them on your head for a long time."
"Switching from DiMeola to some classic Soul II Soul shows these phones can produce some major bass. If your musical taste leans towards house, hip hop, and electronica – the Peacocks might just be your new favorite musical tool."
"But don’t think the Peacocks are Beats reincarnated. Regardless of genre, they deliver a high level of musical satisfaction. Their pleasing rendition and utter lack of distortion makes whatever music you love accessible. The midrange is clean, and the top end transparent."
"They ship from the factory with a mini headphone plug, but Sendy includes ¼-inch and balanced adaptors. Putting these phones through their paces with everything from an older iPhone to our Manley reference headphone amplifier shows the Peacocks incredibly easy to drive. That’s great news no matter where you are on your personal listening journey."

In the Oct 2022 Positive Feedback review they summed with:
"During my time with Sendy Apollos, I compared them to a few of my own headphones, plus another pair on loan to me. With each comparison, I found the Apollos to be far and away a more comfortable, balanced, and better fit around my ears. Since some of my listening sessions with them went long, this comfort was hugely appreciated. Sonically, the Apollos performed well above their $499 price point, even with the use of a mobile phone. I may even invent a few reasons to escape before our time is done."

Hifi Pig summed with
"The Apollo open-backed planer headphones from Sendy Audio offer a first-class build and visual appeal at an economy price. Their lively, detailed sound coupled with comfortable ear pads provide pleasure over extended listening sessions. The Apollo falters slightly at higher frequencies but is a real contender in its price range."
