IZPON(Producer,Percussionist,DJ)

For more than 10 years, I have been indebted to Mr. Kumano’s mastering services for various works.
I have been using PHONONON products starting with SMB-02, ML-1, SMB-01L, and so on.

All of them are indispensable in my field, and currently, the SMB-02 is used for percussion recording and DJing, as it is thick but very detailed and easy to listen to.

The ML-1 is indispensable for checking mix balance, because if it sounds right here, there are no problems after that. I use it especially to check the amount of low frequency and the main sound.

The SMB-01L is useful for mix-down using only headphones and for checking the balance and image in binaural mixes such as immersive sound, which is increasing in recent years, because of its spatial characteristics.

Personally, I think that the direction of PHONON, which has long regarded club music as an important genre of music, is a good match for me in the recent music situation where the importance of low frequencies in music is increasing.
I look forward to working with you in the future.

“Been using this phonon headphone for the last 2 album mixes and they are like a pair of ns10 speakers but better. Very clear, accurate in the low end precise. Comments from the mastering engineer on last album: had almost no adjustments to do…”

Please check and have a listen to Reinhard’s latest 2 beautiful solo albums “Presents For Friends” and “Soundtracks” out on music for dreams.

 

“I couldn’t help myself and bought all 3 PHONON headphones. I run the whole studio on them now. They are all very different and complement each other, while maintaining the same quality and volume. I gave them nicknames: the Workhorse (SMB-03), the Surgeon (SMB-02), and the King (SMB-01L). The last one is like a full surround cinema on your head and sounds so very impressive that it is addictive. Been mixing on all of them and it just turns out very well so far. So easy to check low end, stereo field, and harshness and also just so nice to listen to music in general”.

I’m in love with my Phonon SMB-02, they give me a clarity and detail that I couldn’t find in other headphones and I even trust them above my speakers these days. I use them for my own mixes and also for clients.

“Since a half year or so, I got hooked on my pair of Phonon headphones. I use them to record vocals in the studio and  when playing live as well. 

With our band Rheinzand, it gets really loud on stage and it can get tricky to find the right pitch vocally. 

These headphones saved my life during our performances. They are cristal clear and they play loud. Just the way I like it .

I love that you can use them for a controlled environment like studio, recordings or recordings for livestreams etc and that they are fit for the wild, loud gigs as well. 

And on top of that: these are the only headphones that look good! “

I was surprised by the level of detail and separation the PHONON SMB-02 revealed. The decay of my bass drum, tails of my reverb, depth and width of my delays all in an affordable package. The Soundstage felt almost like a speaker setup in a well treated room – surprisingly accurate for closed back headphones. If you’re mixing on headphones solely I’m sure these will help you to reach the next level.

“For years I have relied on my Sony MDR-7506 headphones, that is until I was introduced to the Phonon SMB-02.The Phonon headphone realistically captures the audio that I have been missing from my MDR-7506.The SMB-02 faithfully reproduce a rich, deep bottom while maintaining just the right amount of top end. I also love the way they fit and fell.
The Phonon’s ARE my new reference headphones!
I just love them!”

The simple lines and sturdy construction encouraged me to audition the phonon smb -02 headphones. After a short (30 minute) break in period, a full sound stage developed putting the Smb-02 on a par with the best hi-fidelity monitoring headphones. I plan to utilize these cans in the heat of dj battle as well as the heat of a hot studio in the mix. Congratulations on a well considered and realized product.

When like me, you spend countless of hours producing / editing / arranging musical projects you need various references & headphones are one of the best way to reset your sonic point of view on the music or sound you’re working on . I sometimes turn off my monitoring & work only with headphones for entire session.

The Phonon SMB 02 are my “go to” headphone reference when it comes to mixing down a project. Why, What’s the difference ? Its quite unique way to reproduce the sonic image: the precision of the high frequencies, the imaging if the mids & the depth of the bass frequencies. I also like the fact that the SMB 02 creates very little “ear fatigue” therefore i can work longer & better sessions .

PHONON SMB 02 are, so far, the best studio headphones i’ve used .

The New York Times

A version of this article appears in print on July 25, 2013, on page D1 of the New York edition with the headline: The New Audio Geeks.

WHAT THEY DO These over-ears headphones are made by a Japanese company with an audio dream team that includes a veteran sound engineer, a music producer and a D.J. The results are known in the audiophile world as “the holy grail of headphones” for their comfort and clear, lush sound. “We get batches in 10 at a time from Japan,” Mr. Toto said, “and sell them out immediately.”
