For my new can purchase I think so far it's down to the Diana-Phi vs Empyrean. Since I don't have anything to listen to at the moment. No Utopia :frowning2: bummer.

Is this still an on-ear design even with the bigger pads?
I know when I tried the original Diana, it was over ear....just. I suppose it depends on your ear size, but I would imagine the Diana Phi is over ear.

They do look fairly spacious, I suppose we will have to wait until this weekend for some reports.

So, Diana Phi is now what Diana should have been only 4 months ago? :stopwatch:It might not take long until used Dianas will show up in the classifieds for half of their price. Looks like planned obsolescence.:put_litter_in_its_place:

I should mention the original Diana model remains current, so we will have two Diana models going forward.

I’m choosing between the Diana Phi and LCDi4. Will the Diana Phi be worth the extra money?
I could buy the i4 this fall, but purchasing the Diana Phi would necessitate saving until early next year. Hmmm
Either way, I’m looking forward to attaining portable headphone endgame.
