Phiaton Bridge MS 500 Headphones

While [ahem] lesser, hip-hop-mogul-branded headphones have become all the rage, Phiaton continues to focus on crafting legitimate premium quality cans. Their newly introduced flagship MS 500 headphones are serious business.

They look great, sound great, and fold up nice and compact for easy packing. At nearly $300, they don’t come cheap. But the rather lengthy list of features is more than enough to sway discerning audiophile travelers:

  • Genuine perforated leather with machined aluminum
  • Dual-chamber structure providing richer detail and clearer, more powerful bass
  • “Multi-Tune Acoustic Design”: combines the excellent bass response of closed ear headphones with the crystal clear high-frequency response of open-style earphones
  • Tangle-free cloth wrapped cables, one with an in-line microphone for phone calls; two cables included
  • Easy foldable structure and design allow for convenient transportation
  • Ambidextrous cable inputs allow the single cable to plug into either the left or right side of the headphone
  • Noise Isolation feature allows you to focus on your music and not the surrounding noise

Pricing + Availability

Available now for less than $300 (USD) from (aff) and most premium AV outlets.
