JPS Labs is a long-established high end cable manufacturer which has also turned their attention to the headphone community. We call them headphones, but whereas traditional headphones clamp onto your ears and cram sound into your head, the AB-1266 Phi is not a traditional headphone; this innovative design more closely emulates a full-range pair of speakers and the driver elements sit just a little away from your head. This extra space and the design of the driver give the Abyss room to breathe and create what some have called the “perfect speaker in the perfect room” effect. This latest version, the Phi, may look the same as its predecessor, but under the hood much has changed. Featuring an all-new driver with a vastly stronger magnet and a lighter diaphragm this combination increases efficiency by a whopping 3dB! The improvements can be heard top to bottom; low-frequencies now have more drive and depth, midrange has more space and texture and the top octaves are sweeter and more resolving.
