New model ABYSS Diana Phi Headphone – Bigger On The Inside

The ABYSS Diana luxury line of headphones was launched in early 2018. Touted as the world’s thinnest boutique headphone, it has since changed longstanding perceptions of headphone physics by easily comparing to and in many cases besting the highest performance headphones. World-class sound in a compact portable package. ABYSS has since worked toward furthering this success, producing a second higher performance Diana version that’s ‘bigger on the inside’ by incorporating the Phi planar speakers from their agship AB-1266 Phi CC, the headphone on the tip of any connoisseur’s tongue when asked; ‘What’s the best’? The new Diana Phi is said to have world-class dynamics, resolution, and renement to sound never before heard in such a compact package. As with any ABYSS, she’s quite capable of playing any genre of music to an extreme level of enjoyment, limited only by the electronics and recording. The goosebump inducing ‘you are there’ sound is to die for. ABYSS has also created a new ear pad to better match the acoustics of the new Phi drivers. Also bigger on the inside, the new pads further expand on soundscape and comfort.

Pricing for the new Diana Phi is 4395 €. Color- Titanium Gray

HAA: Exclusive Dealer of ABYSS in the Netherlands

June 1st, 2018

I am delighted and proud to announce that Headphone Auditions Amsterdam has obtained the exclusive dealership for the outstanding Abyss headphones in the Netherlands, Belgium & Luxembourg.

As a true classic, this headphone has reached an almost legend-like status – not only because of raving reviews but also because it is not easy to find, let alone to hear in Europe. But now The Abyss AB1266 Phi (update: and the Diana) is – as almost all of our portfolio – ready for demonstration on the 1st floor of Concerto Audio in the Utrechtsestraat 40 in Amsterdam. You will be stunned by what this one can do your favourite recordings…

I see you soon, Stefan

Nederlands tekst:
Headphone Auditions Amsterdam is erg verheugd en trots om te kunnen melden exclusief dealer van Abyss koptelefoons in Nederland, België en Luxemburg te zijn. Deze ware klassieker kent een haast legendarische status: niet alleen vanwege de extatische besprekingen, maar ook omdat het tot voor kort haast onmogelijk bleek de Abyss in Europa in handen te krijgen. Laat staat er naar te luisteren. Maar sinds kort maakt de Abyss AB1266 Phi (nu leverbaar in de nieuwe CC versie) onderdeel uit van onze collectie, en staat deze klaar voor demonstratie op de 1e verdieping van Concerto Audio in de Utrechtsestraat 40 in Amsterdam. Je zult versteld staan van wat deze uitmuntende koptelefoon voor je favoriete opnames kan betekenen.

Another wonderful addition to my little shop is the beautiful Modenaudio Lympha. HAA is the exclusive dealer for the Netherlands.

I will let you know when the 1st units have arrived in Amsterdam.

I see you soon, Stefan.
