Phiaton MS 400 (Second-Generation) Review

26 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Have you ever filled out a customer comment card and turned it in but, deep down, felt like your opinion probably wouldn’t be considered or valued? Yeah, we understand. When we review products we hope (with subdued skepticism) that the manufacturer might just take some of our suggestions to heart and maybe even implement them. Alas, such is rarely the case.
  • Pros: Powerful yet balanced sound, Very comfortable, Great sensitivity, Classy new black color schema
  • Cons: Difficult to pack into storage case, Midrange may be a little laid back for some listeners

  • Conclusion: Phiaton's MS 400 headphones sound extremely crisp in the high frequency range while delivering a strong low-frequency punch—ideal for fans of rap, heavy rock, and electronic music.

Phiaton MS 400 Moderna Series Headphones Review

17 April 2010
  • Excerpt: In a sea of headphones of all sorts and prices, the Phiaton MS 400 headphones while having been around for a while now, stand out from the crowd in more ways than one. I've had the pleasure to test quite a few headphones for a while now and when I first found out about Phiaton's MS 400 headphones I immediately got attracted. There's no denying the good looks these sport.

Phiaton Moderna MS 400 Review

23 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Fifty years of audio experience from parent company Cresyn shine through in the MS 400. They’re the rare pair of headphones that sound as good as their seductive good looks suggest, seamlessly coupling innovative style with jaw-dropping sound. You’ll pay for the privilege, but we consider $250 a fair, if slightly steep, price for admission to the world of superlative audio that these cans unlock.
  • Pros: Loud but likeable styling; comfortable for extended wear; excellent detail and imaging; tight, well-balanced sound
  • Cons: Ultra-short cable; difficult to fit into carrying case; audiophile-grade price tag

Phiaton MS 400 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
12 May 2009
  • Summary: Wearing the flashy neon-colored Phiaton MS 400 headphones around town garnered a few sidelong glances, but we were too busy enjoying the heavy bass and explosive volume of these closed-back cans to care. Then again, including perks like active noise-canceling and more refined audio quality would have justified the $249 price tag a bit more.

Phiaton Moderna MS 400 Headphones

16 March 2009
  • Summary: There are exceptions to every rule. The Phiaton MS 400s are one to the rule that companies selling direct aren’t worth the attention products sold by established dealers are afforded. They offer an appearance that is very definitely not the norm and a sonic signature that will surprise with its overall quality.

Phiaton Moderna MS 400 headphones

14 January 2009
  • Conclusion: That is not to underestimate what Phiaton has done in the Moderna MS 400. It is, on the whole, a superb product that will appeal to many listeners. Neither a bargain nor high-priced at $249, the MS 400 falls midway between the Sennheiser HD280 Pro and the AKG K701. There are a host of reasons to buy it: It's easy to drive. It's extremely musical—time after time, the MS 400 made me drop my "just doing my job" faćade and get deep into the musical moment.

Phiaton Moderna MS 400 headphones

14 January 2009
  • Excerpt: I thought about Smith the smith when John Atkinson delivered the Phiaton Moderna MS 400 headphones for review. Make no mistake—the MS 400s ($249), crafted from black carbon fiber and polymer and clad in Ferrari Rosso Corso crimson leather, are beautiful. They've turned heads every time I've taken them out in public.
