Abyss AB-1266 Headphones

October 5, 2014


Scot Hull has posted a review of the Abyss AB-1266 headphones ($5495) at Part-Time Audiophile. His conclusions:

“There isn’t a single bullet in the hi-fi gun, no single sonic signature that silences all objections and speaks to all souls with a single, compelling voice. Despite all expectations to the contrary. I guess I shouldn’t have been too surprised that there isn’t one in head-fi, either. The hardest part, the Oracle says, is knowing yourself. That done, the choice of tools to reach your own slice of Platonic heaven is a bit more clear. Me, I think the Abyss is silly-good, and the bass presentation is the best that I’ve heard for anything that sits on or in your head. And nothing lights them up like the Liquid Gold.”
