Meet Diana DZ, the latest in the evolution of the Diana series of ABYSS Headphones. This new model is built upon a lightweight machined aluminium frame with a highly engineered internal structure providing strength and acoustics to compliment the newly developed DZ planar speaker driver. We’ve reduced weight down to 315 grams (without ear pads), the lightest Diana headphone ever produced, and added a soft sling to the headband assembly for exceptional comfort.

A newly developed 63 mm ABYSS planar speaker driver with 50 ohm impedance offers the highest resolution of any Diana model. Diana DZ is relatively easy to drive but very much so excels with higher-end electronics and sources, tube or solid state.

Diana DZ has beautiful imaging and realism to sound, like opening a larger window to the music with a big soundstage, micro detail, and depth. In essence DZ has a near limitless ability to scale with the best systems available, and constantly rewards it’s owner with cool insights into the music and system changes.

Choose from a beautifully curated selection of colour options with custom exotic inlays of New Zealand Abalone or Forged Carbon.

Be with the band!
