Chris Davies - Sep 4, 2008, 1:16pm CDT

High-end audio manufacturers Phiaton have announced their first headphones to be available in the US.  The MS-400 have both a distinctive design and, according to Phiaton, “unmatched audiophile quality”; constructed from carbon graphite fiber, they weigh just 6.5oz despite using “studio grade” 40mm electrodynamic drivers.


Other specs include 98dB Sensitivity, 32 Ohm Impedance and a maximum input power of 1000 mW. Phiaton also claim to have worked on the airflow, optimizing it to deliver “concert hall sound quality”, while the carbon fiber is encased in a double-shell high polymer enclosure.

Big boasts, and a not inconsiderable price tag either. The Phiaton MS-400 headphones are available now, priced at $249. They come with a carrying case, into which the MS-400’s fold up.
