Phonon SMB-01L Flagship Monitoring Headphones

Isao Kumano, Phonon CEO, and one of Japan’s top mastering engineers, crafted the innovative SMB-01L with audio professionals in mind. His main goal was to reproduce large studio-monitoring sound in a headphone and a success it is.
Revolutionary in it's design, the SMB-01L utilises a 50mm diameter driver unit to further enhance the signature natural ultra-low range bass monitoring that PHONON’s is renowned for.  The high-end unit features a powerful magnetic circuit and a diaphragm with a “free edge” structure that brings a quantum improvement to the reproduction of raw sounds, increasing presence and achieving wide high-resolution dynamic frequency range playback.
PHONON extensively tested various reference materials during the developmental stages to ensure the best acoustic balance for all genres of music.
With PHONON’s unique tuning method, the SMB-01L achieves a stunning acoustic balance and a sound that closely resembles that of large high-end audio monitoring systems.
The "Limited Edition" PHONON SMB-01L professional headphones can be further tune to be either an enclosed dynamic headphone or semi-open with the included exchangeable ear plates. 
The SMB-01L is the new go-to for reference headphones.
