The perfect multifunctional headphone

The DJ / music designer Alex from Tokyo on the new SMB-03 model: “ This nicely designed studio model is the perfect multifunctional headphone, with a great intimate sound reproduction (less detailed than the SMB-02), lightweight and comfortable for long-time use, with rotating earcups, a detachable curl chord suited for elevated home , on-the-go listening, production as well for DJing."

I couldn't help myself

The Belgian multi-talented musician composer/producer Reinhard Vanbergen compares our 3 headphones for the studio:


“I couldn't help myself and bought all 3 PHONON headphones. I run the whole studio on them now. They are all very different and complement each other, while maintaining the same quality and volume. I gave them nicknames: the Workhorse (SMB-03), the Surgeon (SMB-02), and the King (SMB-01L). The last one is like a full surround cinema on your head and sounds so very impressive that it is addictive. Been mixing on all of them and it just turns out very well so far. So easy to check low end, stereo field, and harshness and also just so nice to listen to music in general”.

Fred Everything I'm in Love

I’m in love with my Phonon SMB-02, they give me a clarity and detail that I couldn’t find in other headphones and I even trust them above my speakers these days. I use them for my own mixes and also for clients.
