Abyss AB-1266 Lite Headphones


Product Description

Our pricing for this product is the "MAP Pricing."  This means that the prices shown here are the "minimum advertised prices" permitted by the manufacturer.

NOTE: All Abyss orders will receive the latest "Abyss Phi" version with improved planar drivers for improved transparency and low frequency impact.


Manufacturer's Description:

•Made in the USA


•Rigid chassis consisting of left/right side frames and structural adjustable two piece headband. All components machined from solid aluminum for exceptional strength. Integrated resonance control for minimal added coloration.


•High quality anodized finish with bare aluminum accents.


•Proprietary planar magnetic transducer design (Patent Pending) utilizing our very thin, very low mass diaphragm. Amazing bandwidth and low level detail retrieval in the bass, mids, and highs. No rear magnet structure typical of planar designs eliminates annoying reflections from behind allowing for a completely open sound. Matched driver pairs.


•Unique custom made high power neodymium magnets with optimized slot pattern.


•Low carbon steel front baffle with integrated resonance control.


•Unique breathable aluminum sides acoustically tuned to our planar diaphragm for completely open sound.


•High quality soft lambskin ear pads provide comfort and finely tuned acoustics. Unique adjustability allows for varying head shapes.


•Padded leather headband with head movement isolation, Abyss embroidered logo.


•Balanced 8 FT (2.5 meter) 4 pin XLR cable and adaptor to single 1/4" (6.3 mm). All cables custom made by JPS Labs for Abyss. Internal wiring also by JPS Labs.


•Nicely hand-crafted two-tone felt lined wooden box touting the Abyss Headphones logo secures all of the above.


•All main components permanently laser engraved for traceability and collectability.


•Please note that this 'Lite' version is the exact same headphone as in the full AB-1266 package, minus the heavy leather man bag style carry case, minus the JPS Labs dual balanced 3 pin XLR cables and matching Y-adaptors, minus the Abyss headphone stand. Purchase the full AB-1266 Headphone set as a complete package if you seek any of these cool accessories; they are not sold separately.
