Phonon 4000: "These headphones are by far the cleanest, clearest sounding on-ear headphones I have ever heard. I performed an a, b, & c test with my other two pairs ." See complete review here.
– Kane Micheal - Magnetic Mag
"This is an excellent sounding and beautifully built headphone that consistently delivers a sound that is lively and powerful without being ruthlessly revealing of less than perfect or compressed material" See complete review here.
– Ed Selley - Hifi Wigwam
"...Combining that with the fact that they are easy to drive, and offer a high degree of musical satisfaction with even an iPod or smartphone as a musical source, makes them an excellent (perhaps one of the best) choices for someone wanting one great pair of headphones" See complete review here.
– Tone Audio
"Since I got my pair of Phonon SMB-02 headphones, they have become an essential element when it comes to checking my studio mixes. From the very crisp highs to the low, fat basses, these headphones simply never lie." See complete review here.
– Laurent Garnier (DJ/Producer)
.."The 4000s' true strengths are its sound, price and portability, making them ideal for travel and casual usage. The low-end is rich without feeling woofy or unnatural, and the soundstage is refreshingly wide for an enclosed model. See complete review here.
– Mark Smith, Resident Advisor
..."Once I tried the Phonon SMB-02 headphones, I was immediately hearing things consistently with how I hear them in my well tuned studio control room. Sometimes I think I hear even more detail in the SMB-02′s than I do in the studio. See complete review here.
– Stephen Shirk, Shirk Studios
Phonon SMB & 4000 Headphones
The magic is in the precision Tuning by veteran sound and mastering engineer Isao Kumano. Isao achieves perfectly balanced reproduction of the original intent of the musician/producer. The effect to the listener is an alignment of all the frequencies at the right time, producing an unmatched experience.
Excellent space definition and stunning low volume playback for headphone mixing, making it perfect for studio monitoring, DJing, or enjoying the purest quality of playback from your favorite track.
Features thick but lightweight earpads that remain comfortable even after long hours of use. Simply put, everything about these headphones is geared towards maximizing sound quality. Any features that diminish sound quality (like noise cancelation or wireless) have been purposely avoided.
Phonon Headphones are quickly becoming essential gear in the studio, Dj booth or for the audiophile, check out our reviews section to see why.
