The Finest Instrument for Musical Reproduction

Abyss Headphones came about from the need for a superior way to listen to music. 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 the center of your forehead while drums are slightly forward of them. No electronic tricks, simply the natural sounds of the recording coming through striking emotional chords, that's Abyss.

The new AB-1266 Phi is an improved version of the original. A main improvement includes a new high-tech magnet that allows for a highly consistent magnetic field, giving its ability to a more finely tuned diaphragm to match for the clearest reproduction possible. There is no change on tonality. The improvement is in transparency, and itís quite noticeable. You can hear room ambiance and boundaries as if you were in the room listening the recording being made.
