Reviews + Testimonials
"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 feel, I just love them" See complete review here.

"The Phonon SMB-01L headphones show that Phonon is in the top league in terms of sound. Tonally on the somewhat fuller, sound side, they convince with high resolving power, inspiring dynamics and, thanks to the option of operating it closed or semi-open, with a turn-on accentuated or a solidly neutral bass range."

..."Once I tried the Phonon SMB-02 headphones, I was immediately hearing things consistently with how I hear them in my well tuned studio control room. Sometimes I think I hear even more detail in the SMB-02′s than I do in the studio. See complete review here.
