Abyss Headphones came about from the need for a superior way to listen to music. Our lofty goal was to design a unique transducer using the lowest driver mass possible combined with finely tuned resonance control and acoustics to completely maximize the personal enjoyment of music, particularly high resolution digital.
Our research led us on a path to creating proprietary methods utilizing unique materials to produce a very thin planar diaphragm of exceptional speed. Custom high power neodymium magnets and a highly optimized magnetic field reduce driver distortions even further, allowing for great clarity and detail to reproduced sound with smooth tone and exceptional bandwidth.
A machined aluminum skeletal frame assembly provides excellent rigidity and controls resonances by absorbing vibration more than any other headphone produced for minimal coloration and a very high level of clarity to sound without brightness. Unique use of diffusive porous aluminum custom designed by Abyss to further tune acoustics for proper timbre and spectral balance while sounding completely open.
Soft comfortable lambskin ear pads are shaped to fit to the head and magnetically couple to the front baffle with adjustable stops. Suspended padded leather headband gently supports the headphones atop the head and adjusts to varying heights without noisy mechanical connections to further isolate vibrations of head motion from interfering with listening.
Dual high-performance balanced headphone cables custom made by JPS Labs for Abyss Headphones provide the optimal interface to any high quality headphone amplifier.
Many more custom features such as a beautifully stained wooden case, heavy leather carry bag, and aluminum headphone stand are included with these fine instruments of musical reproduction to complete the package. Add electronics and hit play.
