Headphone-Zone-Abyss-AB-1266

66MM PLANAR MAGNETIC SPEAKER DRIVERS FOR THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION OF ANY HEADPHONE EVER MADE

Newly designed 66mm Patented planar magnetic transducer design utilize very thin, very low mass diaphragm for the highest levels of unmatched revolution.

Unique foamed aluminum sides acoustically tuned to our planar diaphragm for completely open sound. Magnetically adjustable positioning lets you fine tune acoustics and fit for your music, and you.

Headphone-Zone-Abyss-AB-1266

A LEVEL OF LUXURY AND SOPHISTICATION EVEN COCO CHANEL WOULD APPROVE OF

An oven cured ceramic coating in a two tone luxury black color engulfed in a sophisticated look in person. The AB-1266 screams class, subtly though. Larger, more comfortable ear pads improve the Phi's acoustic performance taking it to higher levels of sonic bliss. These ear pads make for added comfortability and ensure longer, easier listening sessions.

 

 

DID ANYONE ORDER A PRIVATE CONCERT FOR ONE?

Every time you hit that Play button, from the very first note you will hear musicians and instruments in a whole new way. Voices appear out of nowhere and float in between your ears. Piano is in front of you to the left, singers in front of your forehead while drums are slightly forward of them. No tricks, no equalizers simply the natural sounds of the recording coming through striking emotional chords unaltered, that's Abyss. The AB-1266 Phi can convey the power of a huge symphony and the nuances of the quietest sounds in nature.

LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING. BUT BUILT TO LAST.

At first sight, the AB-1266 may look bulky, clamping and rather heavy to wear. But, these headphones have been designed to not clamp but sit loose on your head and float while you're at it. High quality soft lambskin ear pads provide comfort and finely tuned acoustics. The adjustable two piece headband distributes weight equally and comfortably.
