Introducing the new AB-1266 Phi TC (Total Consciousness) Planar Magnetic Over-Ear Headphones. Newly designed 66 mm planar magnetic speaker drivers deliver the highest resolution of any headphone ever made. Combined with the venerable AB-1266 headphone design, newly minted all aluminum frame and posh ear pads means you’ll never have to buy another concert ticket.

A New Generation of ABYSS Planar Drivers

These latest ABYSS drivers offer unprecedented levels of clarity and resolution to sound, without the typical brightness or harshness. Imagine sitting with the band, hearing what they hear. Surreal is the best way to describe the new AB-1266 Phi TC.

Musical information is clearly defined, harmony can easily be heard as individual singers within the group, instrument separation is crazy good, bass drums have the rolling of their skins, ‘bass within bass' as we call it. In essence it transports you back to that time and place.

Visceral Impact

The AB-1266 Phi TC refines the sonic virtues of their finest headphone with excellent transparency to the source, and hard hitting low frequency impact and resolution. The ABYSS AB-1266 are low-end beasts and for anyone looking for massive low-end slam, the AB-1266 are the kings. The sound of these headphones easily compares to and in many areas exceed the finest two channel audiophile systems money can buy. More importantly, this venerable will preserve in history one of the finest headphones ever produced.

Highlights

  • ABYSS CNC machine and finish all aluminum frame components, produce their planer speaker drivers, and skillfully assemble the AB-1266 Phi TC with US made stainless steel hardware, all within their facility in Buffalo, New York, USA. Deluxe leather carry bag made in California. Wooden box made in New York state.
  • The chassis consists of left/right side frames and an adjustable two-piece headband. No plastic parts to break, all components machined from solid aluminum for exceptional strength. Integrated resonance control for minimal added coloration.
  • High quality two-tone black polymer ceramic coatings on the all metal frame and components, polished metal accents.
  • Proprietary planar magnetic transducer design (Patent Pending) plays effortless dynamics and low level details in the bass, mids, and highs with spacious sound outside of your head. A front row listening experience with stunning bass impact no other headphone can provide, like the finest loudspeakers in a dedicated listening room.
  • Matched driver pairs, meaning your brain will appreciate the musical realism of our attention to detail.
  • Unique custom made high power neodymium magnets with optimized slot pattern.
  • Low carbon steel front baffle with integrated resonance control.
  • Unique foamed aluminum sides acoustically tuned to their planar diaphragm for completely open sound.
  • High quality soft lambskin ear pads provide comfort and finely tuned acoustics. Magnetically adjustable positioning lets you fine tune acoustics and fit for your music, and you.
  • Padded leather headband with head movement isolation properly distributes weight for hours of comfortable wear. Looks are deceiving, these headphones are designed not to clamp your head, but rather float atop and loosely touch your ears (no problem with eye glasses). 'Abyss' embroidered logo.
  • Nicely hand-crafted two-tone felt lined wooden box touting the Abyss Headphones logo secures all of the above.
  • All main components permanently engraved for traceability and collectability.
