In their continuous pursuit of the finest in musical reproduction… ABYSS gives the AB-1266 Phi Reference Headphone a new suit, made of the hardest thin film coating on Earth. A colored polymer ceramic coating (CC) is factory applied and oven cured. This beautiful two-tone luxury black finish gives the Phi a sophisticated look and is said to enhance the quality of sound by further improving upon the anti-resonant nature of its all aluminum components. It also allows for custom color options, unheard of in the boutique headphone market.

ABYSS has also improved upon the ear pads in both appearance and function. The new pads are deep and comfortable, and are said to improve acoustics by providing a larger soundstage with improved micro details. The new pads will be standard issue with the new CC model, and will also be sold separately as an upgrade for any older model AB-1266.

Pricing for the new AB-1266 Phi CC is $4995 USD for the Lite version, $5995 USD for Deluxe, and $7995 USD for the Complete. Current Euro prices will remain the same.
