Phonon-SMB 02: Why having the right pair of headphones is important!

At the end of the day, you want a pair of headphones that will inspire you to create; and give you total confidence that what you hear is what THEY will hear when you play it out loud.

We’ve all been there.

You just spent 5 hours working on an amazing track in your fancy thousand-dollar headphones and you can’t wait to show it to your friends. Then you play it out loud on studio monitors and it’s a total disaster.

And you think to yourself, “what? I didn’t make this!”

The bass is off, the vocals are way too loud, there are bad notes everywhere, and you’re ready to throw in the towel and give up making music.

Why can’t somebody create a solid pair of cans where what you hear is what THEY will hear?

Well the good folks at Phonon have certainly figured this out.

If you ever wondered what it’s like to wear an acoustically treated studio on your head, then the Phonon SMB-02's come pretty darn close!

Stunning clarity at low volumes (keeping ear fatigue to a minimum), and top-end so detailed and smooth you will literally taste the saturation on a record.

I showed it to one of my students, and all he said was “WOW, I CAN HEAR EVERYTHING!”

What he really meant was the instrument separation, placement and sense of space was unlike anything he’s ever heard.

Above 500HZ, it’s way more musical and pleasing to the ear than an Audeze LCD-X, yet just as detailed and accurate. And for a fraction of the cost (under $400 USD.)

You will easily find yourself spending hours auditioning synth patches or listening to your favorite records over and over again because they sound THAT good.
