On February 10, 2024, the ‘SMB-01L’ headphones by PHONON were featured on BS Fuji’s program “Tokoro’s Setagaya Base.” George Tokoro highly praised the SMB-01L, stating, “Once you start using these in the studio, no other headphones come close!” and “They’re amazing. Truly excellent. A complete game-changer.” We are immensely grateful to Mr. Tokoro for his kind words!

The SMB-01L is designed to replicate the experience of a studio large monitor in a pair of headphones, offering an innovative listening experience. We encourage you to discover the exceptional quality of the SMB-01L, which has earned such high praise from Mr. Tokoro.

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.
