Both are in my top 5 headphones. The advantage with the Diana is that you can take them with you on the go; something you can't really with the Utopia. :wink: The Diana are the real deal and the best on-the-go pair of headphones I've heard. As mentioned, they sounded so good, I put them in my personal top 5 list. My review of the Diana headphones should be out within a few weeks in case you're interested. :)
Looking forward to your review :) Diana is still at the top of my "want to hear" list!

I don’t how they can get such a big and powerful sound in such a compact design. The build quality is exceptional too.
I think that's your answer right there. It's the solid build and minimum movement in the frame that leaves little room for unwanted resonances and vibrations to occur..

And my review is now live:

http://headphone.guru/abyss-diana/

:) Simply the best portable headphones I've heard and they sound so darn good, they are in my personal top-5 of all time. Congrats to Joe and the team at Abyss!
Thanks for the review Peter! It sounds like the overall fit was great for you, but were you able to fit your entire ear into the cups? How would you compare the comfort to the incumbent HD800 S?

I assume you tried Diana with the Hugo 2, right? I imagine that being a portable juggernaut.

Thanks! :)

Based on the Abyss Phi and now the Diana...absolutely! :beerchug:

I can indeed get my entire ear into the cups. The Hugo2 and the Diana are the best portable headphone setup I've heard..."juggernaut" is quite the accurate word as what I'm hearing rivals the very best desktop setups around!
