No comment on its looks....
For being made in the USA the features list is hilariously similar to what I would expect from China:
"Unique magnetic headband is so smooth"
"Choose from 3 colors -- White-White (shown), Beach Front, or What's Cool" ("White-White".... Really...?)
"Diana is an amazing concert for one, front row seats always"
Do we have a price point yet? If it's over $1000 I don't know how they will sell any when the Oppo and Audeze options are so attractive... (yes, that is a dig at the looks...)
It'd be great if you post pics...
I like them, but most people don't seem to like them from what I've read on head-fi.
Here are some pics...
Rockin' dat Bed Bath & Beyond aesthetic...
Even if these sound decent that enclosure design is pathetic and I would not want to be seen wearing them.
Those look like they belong in an old age home/hospital or something.
Medical device aesthetic...
Is this... is this for real? Holy crap, it is! That is one startlingly ugly can. If it wasn't listed on Abyss' site, I'd think this was a belated April Fools' prank.
According to Hifi Insider, it's gonna be at a MSRP of $3,000.
They would look good in black. But if I'm honest, if they are 90% of the Abyss in a smaller more comfortable form factor, I couldn't give a shit what they look like.
Rumour has it they are looking to make on and over earpads for it and it will be half the weight of the Abyss.
I mean.. Imagine how good that would be.
I think some of you are bring hard on the Diana's... How much can you honestly expect for only $3k?
I'm secretly a fan of abyss but the way it fits on my head is not really encouraging me to shelling out $$ for a pair so i hope this will got some improvements in that part. I'm ok-ish with the design, wont wear something this pricey outside anyway.
i wonder if dirty diana will sound good on it...
Thats honestly one of the ugliest headphones i've ever seen.
Ugh. I had a doubt that this is an alpha-stage design, but it seems that these guys were seriously putting this design as final....
I thought Abyss was cool in a unique way by looking like medieval tourture device, but this is literally the ugliest fucking can I've ever seen.
Not sure I get where all the "ugliest headphone I've ever seen" stuff is coming from... you guys have seen the Jecklin Floats, right? Nevermind the myriad of rapper cans out there.
Hell, most everything Audez'e makes and the HE-1000 look uglier to me.
At least they look comfortable and light weight.
Why is this not black?
Is this meant to be a "serious" headphone or a punt at a different audience? I'm a fan of the Abyss (one day, one day), but the Diana looks like a costume jewellery "fashion" headphone. Reminds me of another manufacturer with audio chops that brought out a "style" over content headphone, although the Sonus Faber looks better (and that's not saying much)...
Because it would look more Daredeveil / Deadpool than Logan's Run / The Island.
