Cool video coming up on our youtube channel Saturday 9/23 where we test a whole bunch of USB dongles on the new iPhone 15 Pro.

1. Cool video. I would be interested in a video that covers your headphone pricing determinations/factors. How did you end up with $4495 for the TC, and $2995 for MR, and $5995 for the 1266? What is the cost of materials for each one? What is the cost of material processing? What do you charge for the tuning work that went into each headphone? How much of the MSRP cost is pure profit? How much of it is for warranty? Etc.

2. I used to have a 716 number :) Didn't know you guys are in Lancaster! The only hifi store around that whole area is The Speaker Shop, last I knew.

3. What about dynamic drivers? Have they been attempted by ABYSS before? Or totally avoided for some reason? Electrostatics?

4. What about making a headphone that's as affordable as possible? Instead of all of the fine-tuning tweaks to save 0.4 grams in the headband and cup housing, why not try to re-create the Abyss sound into a headphone that's designed as inexpensively as possible, and see how sales do? What's wrong with trying to cover the lower end of the market, as well? Say, $300-1500, to compete with the likes of the Meze 109 Pro, HD660S2 and ModHouse Tungsten.

Thanks! We'll try to talk more about design in future videos.

We don't do business operations videos.

Speaker Shop is still the only local high-end audio shop in Buffalo, New York. Good people with a store full of the good stuff.

Various transducer technologies each have their mix of pros and cons. Planar transducers are what we prefer to listen to, our specialty.

Lower cost models, maybe one day. We're always working on something, time will tell where it leads.

We've done around 400 videos the last 3 years or so, touched on the above and then some. Subscribe to stay in the loop. Thanks again!

What are some of your guys' favorite headphone models from competitors?

What kind of free merch do you get on an Abyss factory tour?

Come to find the medical imaging industry uses similar methods to designing equipment as we do in designing the next headphone model...
