It's too heavy for me to cart to Kew.  We need to get the Abyss to my place for a test with the Stratus ;)

Nah - They're not for me.  Would be great to hear em on the stratus tho..

 

I still prefer the LCD-3, although if the LCD 4 has the same bass as the Abyss (with everything else the same as the LCD-3) I will buy it asap!

I would love to hear them on a refined speaker amp. Like say, the Simaudio Moon Evolution I6&700. The soundstage imaging is just incredible on the HE-6. Best I've heard on a headphone. If the Abyss can deliver as claimed, it would be an end game rig. It would also set you back about what an Orpheus rig would run.

Have we witnessed the best being bested with a planar? Subjectively speaking of course. I understand the measurements aren't as impressive as their price but it's all about the music, not a test bench.

That would be interesting!

 

Joe -- would you come to the Capital Audio Show in DC at the end of July! I think it is the last weekend of the month.

I would love for the Abyss to be there.  I want to do a direct comparison with the Abyss, LCD-3, and my pair of HE-6 on a really good high quility speaker amp.

My review is up:   http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/jps-labs-abyss-ab-1266-planar-magnetic-headphones

 

I'm wondering if other have heard the noise confusing the treble that I did?

Very nice review, Tyll, thanks...
Yes, I did hear it when compare it with Hd800 and lcd3 from the same setup.
But, IMO it didn't discount the fact that it's really very good HP. Killer bass and speaker like presentation.
On other note, I didn't like it out of Burson Soloist though (similar to Conductor), but like it out of Cavalli LG and Mjolnir.

Great job Tyll, awesome review. Is the treble brighter than the HD800s?

Nice review. So far then it looks like they are not worth the asking price.
