    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    Apparently in the assembly process there was a lead wire out of place. Sh-t happens... Was an easy fix, sorry for the trouble.

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    You could be clipping the amp. At higher volumes with tracks that accentuate bass, it happens. The headphone plays so clean that it begs you to turn it up, you'd be surprised how much peak power it's taking. You also need to watch how hot you're coming into the amp from the source. If this is...

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    Good to hear:). Agreed, the TC easily compares to my 2 channel, just a different more intimate perspective. I have a dedicated listening room that can play late night without bothering anyone, both speakers and headphones play simultaneously, the speakers add a bit of ambiance, plus the...

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    I wouldn't consider the V2 to have more bass relative to the Diana Phi, nor would I consider the Diana Phi to be bass light. What you may hear depending on the system is a difference in overall tonal balance between the two headphones (assuming they are being compared on the exact same system)...

    I worked with a man who worked with Oscar Heil. He produced modern AMT divers that sounded very good in loudspeakers, this was 20 years ago. Our initial R&D began with such a driver, but it had too much 'self-generated noise' for nearfield use an inch or so from your ear, so we moved to...

    Recommend 100+ hours for initial break-in. During this time the sound settles down a bit on the top and bottom end fills in, particularly deep bass, this with the stock cable. If you're using an aftermarket headphone cable suggest to avoid silver with the 1266, particularly with solid state...

    Diana: the second release by Abyss Headphones!

    Good to hear. Fit of the new V2 pads on an original Diana depends on vintage. The original Diana headband shape changed over time, earlier versions will not be as universal a fit with the new V2 pads, dependent more on the shape of your head than newer and now V2 version where the headband is...

    Actually the stock Just Mobile stand will cause the cables to jam into the desktop, it's too short. Our stand is based on this except we machine an extended portion to raise height, change out hardware, etc, etc, so the ABYSS stand is a modified version. We don't sell this stand separately...

    We're always looking for good amps to recommend and have tried all kinds with our headphones, as well as inspired many to be made to mate. The differences in sound as described would require an amp to go toward the brighter side of overall tonality, but hey like I said if that's what you like...

    From my perspective all amps are colored in various ways, it's more a question of what grouping of colors best suits your tastes. From my experience I know I personally would not like the Audio-GD, been there, done that. Good to hear though that you found your fav.

    Be very careful when handling loose magnets (in this case 36 of them). If one of them manages to get loose the 1266 driver might suck it in and give you mono.

    Using a speaker amp for headphones is really no different than using a big headphone amp, however you really need to understand the limitations of the headphone, and the amp. Most speaker amps are not designed with considerations for connecting and disconnecting headphones in a hot swap fashion...
