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...

Reinhard Vanbergen (Rheinzand, music for dreams)

multi-talented musician, composer and music producer  “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…...

Fred Everything (Lazy Days, Montreal)

music producer / DJ 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...

Charlotte Caluwaerts (Rheinzand, music for dreams, Tundra)

singer / composer  "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…...

Martin Iveson (Atjazz / Atjazz Record Company)

DJ / music producer "The SMB-02 are unmatched headphones, nothing, and I mean NOTHING, gets close to the detail they offer me”  ...

Mathias Schober

DJ / music producer 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…...

3-time Grammy Award winner top music producer, engineer and mixer “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…...

UK Techno Master I highly recommend these – wicked for producing music on the road as well. Light, compact, comfortable and most of all, sound amazing!...

DJ Harvey

DJ 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…...

PRODUCER / SOUND DESIGNER / DJ 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…...

NYC online magazine What the Phonons may or may not lack branding and design, they give back in premium sound. Today, they are the headphones I turn to for long period listening. They are fantastic for my needs. The Phonon SMB-02 works and powers incredibly well through smartphones and laptops, without real need for amplification…...

Carlos “Storm” Martinez

Audio Engineer,Sound Editor 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.…...

Integral Sound,NY Thanks so much for the introduction to the Phonon products especially the enhancer/contact liquid.I have had a problematic input connector on one of my EQs in my studio.Since applying the Phonon liquid, it has never given me a problem again. I have used some of the best contact enhancers available in the past…...

Laurent Garnier

DJ/producer “I have never used headphones before to finalise any of my studio productions, just because i feel that I’ve never found the right pair. Since I got my pair of Phonon SMB-02 headphones , they have become an essential element when it comes to checking my studio mixes. From the very crisp highs to…...

Dj Deep

deeply rooted house music records, E&S, Paris The Phonon liquid helps you optimize your connection in a very impressive way! It is very noticeable on audio connections from my DJR400 mixer to my amplifier. In my opinion the Phonon headphones gives you a unique stereo experience, the sound is powerful, warm and very wide yet…...

HiFiWigwam

The UK-based HiFi specialist online website “This is an excellent sounding and beautifully built headphone that consistently delivers a sound that is lively and powerful without being ruthlessly revealing of less than perfect or compressed material. I’ve no idea if I’ve been bowled over by the PHD driver but I do know that I’ve listened…...
