We did a simple application of the liquid to the headphone jack and instantly heard a real difference in clarity and range. The type of difference you’d hear after a full day of tech work in a studio-except it took 30secs.
I listen with my headphones everyday thru a presonus central station. I made sure both volume pots were at the same level and did an A/B test between mine and the phonon headphones.
The phonon’s were 3-5db louder right away, no distortion and a good deal “wider” both in spectrum and color. I’ll buy a set as soon as they go on sale.
