LOL I have to admit that model number is pretty cool now that we know what it means. Wish other companies will follow the same with branding models.

And here I thought it was a reference to the French minting of gold and silver coins in that year.wink_face.gif

I had no idea what it stood for, in fact, I didn't even know it had a model designation.

 

Goes to show, if you lurk here long enough you mine copious nuggets of information which may perhaps enrich your understanding.

>retails for 5k, same as the sr-009 arguably the world's best headphone
>They say it uses a 1k cable
>sounds about as good as the LCD3 which is 2k


In the trash it goes. These guys seem dishonest. That's never a good sign. I'm sure the Abyss sounds great but I'd rather strap those giant stax boxes to my head before buying into this placebo garbage.

...it does look beautiful though

This is really starting to look more and more like you have to listen to them yourself.

I have not said much but after spending a week with them , with the likes of the sr009 to compare them to, I think they are totl. Driven by the correct amp, they are one of the best headphone experiences I have ever had. This is with the liquid gold - abyss , I now know why Alex thought this ousted the SR009 and I agree.

It will be funny (I mean that ironically ) if more people hear this and express the same views. Kind of reminds me when tons of people hated on the HD800 when it came out, but now is preferred by many of these people to their LCD3. these people passionately slammed HD 800 in its early days, but now favor it over any other can.I know it is not the same,  HD800 was criticized for its sound when people were not amping them properly (mostly), while this one on looks and price, which is something you cannot change unless you redesign it.  Still, goest to show how  things can change 

 

 

@ Joe Skubiniski

BTW, do you all plan on developing a little, more affordable, brother to the Abyss? Or maybe you are looking to take this one even further development wise? or are you just gonna stay with one HP in your portfolio?
