  • Conclusion: To keep the weight down Phiaton have constructed the MS-400 from carbon graphite fibre encased in a double-shell high polymer enclosure. They also claim to have worked on the airflow, optimizing it to deliver “concert hall sound quality”.

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

4 May 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.

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.
  • Pros: Very loud, Intense low-end sound, Durable, foldable design, Colorful
  • Cons: Pricey, Passive noise cancellation, Sound leaks at high volume

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 MS 400

18 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Vendu pour un peu plus de 200€, le MS-400 de Phiaton est un casque d'excellente qualité offrant une qualité d'écoute haut de gamme particulièrement riche et maitrisée dans les graves et les médiums. Cette richesse a même le pouvoir d'étendre son utilisation aux jeux vidéos et films où le bruit des tirs et des explosions est particulièrement bien retranscrit. Le casque possède également d'autres qualités comme sa légèreté, son design et sa sacoche fournie.
  • Pros: - Superbe qualité de fabrication, - Confortable, - Très bonne qualité d'écoute, - Basses généreuses et nettes, - Sac de transport fourni
  • Cons: - Câble assez court, - Pas de microphone, - Aigus "écrasés" par les graves
