Phiaton Has Headphones for Every Ear

ps300nc-case

Phiaton, a branch off of Seoul’s Cresyn Co., is relatively new to the high-end headphones market, but the company showed it meant business when it released the PS 300 Noise Cancelling headphones this past March. These headphones cost about $300 and provide up to 18 hours of listening time on its rechargeable lithium-polymer battery. Phiaton also ships the headphones with an extra battery (a $50 value) as well as a battery charger that works in conjunction with a USB cable so users can charge the battery with a PC or laptop.

Phiaton’s other models, like the PS 320 and the MS 400, aren’t noise cancelling but both have their own individual perks. The PS 320 headphones are compact, lightweight, and come in at only $199, making it the cheapest of the Phiaton leather-cupped headphones. The MS 400 has a carbon fiber design for a strong, lightweight shell and won first prize at the International Design Awards, in the Media and Home Electronics – TV Video and Audio Equipment category. And for audiophiles preferring a more delicate structure, Phiaton has PS 200 earphones are earbud-style but with soft silicon tips that come in three different sizes to accurately fit your ear. The PS 200 earbuds are meant to deliver more details and a crisper sound to the inner ear, and are $249.00.

Phiaton products can be bought from online electronics retailers or from the Phiaton Web site.
