Video: A Look Behind The Curtain At Abyss Headphones Enjoy the Music.com features a look behind Abyss Headphones.


  Abyss makes some of the finest planar magnetic headphones within the high-end audio industry. They engineer, machine, and assemble their headphones from scratch using the finest materials. Patented planar speaker drivers deliver music to your ears with a speaker-like performance that will astound you!

Quality shines though with solid aluminum frames, minimal moving parts, comfortable and soft lambskin leathers plus Italian Alcantara... built within the USA. Within this video feature we want you to become more familiar with Abyss and why their headphones are highly-regarded by both reviewers and music lovers worldwide.


Designing The Diana Headphones
Diana headphones are engineered to play the delicate nuances of piano and violin yet pound your head with clean powerful crescendos when called upon. ABYSS began with their world class AB-1266 Phi headphone and worked to develop a new speaker transducer customized for the thin profile of the DIANA headphone.

Retaining the amazing speed and impact of the large AB-1266 Phi, while miniaturizing the entire headphone package, proved to be a huge engineering challenge. ABYSS spent two years toggling between Solidworks 3D software and machining prototypes to reach a point where the DIANA headphone could be no thinner.

Abyss Diana Planar Magnetic Portable Headphones Review

Abyss Diana Planar Magnetic Portable Headphones
Simply the best portable headphones around!
Review By Peter Pialis Of Headphone.Guru

When I first heard a prototype of the Abyss Diana headphones last October, the final voicing had not been finalized, but what I heard really impressed me! This audition was immediately after hearing one of my very favorite flagship headphones of all time (the Abyss AB1266 Phi) immediately prior to them and as a result, these headphones really got my attention!

Designing The ABYSS AB-1266
The AB-1266 is all about the sound. Our goal was to capture the sound of the finest speaker systems and music rooms in the world. Most importantly, they had to convey music as naturally as if you were sitting in the room with the band. This was a huge undertaking for a small company. The first thing you notice when you hear the Abyss AB-1266 Phi headphone is what the human brain is so good at recognizing, natural musical sounds, freedom to the music. The headphone is not producing weird sounds that tell the brain it's a headphone. Instead, you hear cymbals ring out in time without hard metallic sounds, guitar strings resonate inside the guitar body, not some tubby or tin box. Drums have real impact, you hear the rolling of the drum skin, not a thump and it's over.

The most important component, the speaker or driver, must transform an amplified signal to motion so your ears hear only music, not some vibrating plastics or metallics. Abyss started from scratch with an open mind, and used up nearly five years of the company's R&D to create unique materials, magnetics, and acoustic design never before thought of in any full range headphone driver. Dozens of prototypes were built, and at each level greater intricacy was obtained in it's anti-resonant construction and artistic detail.


Abyss AB-1266 Planar Magnetic Headphones By JPS Labs Review

Abyss AB-1266 Planar Magnetic Headphones By JPS Labs
The journey is the destination.
Review By Dave Hanson
The practice of building a home system and tweaking it to perfection is a time-honored tradition among music lovers and audiophiles. And I'm not just talking about buying equipment and is plainly evident within my review of the Abyss AB-1266 headphones and you'll soon learn. It's about perfecting the angle of the speaker. Damping the reflective surfaces of the room. Perhaps even rewiring the electrical sockets in search of that last one or two percent.
