CNET Review

Elegantly designed, affordable products are marvels of our age, but then there are the extreme, defiantly outrageous ones designed to thrill. Take the new 640-horsepower http://www.caranddriver.com/news/2013-srt-viper-photos-and-info-news: this $120,000 supercar looks like a venomous snake with wheels and can propel its owner to insanely fast speeds, but the http://reviews.cnet.com/car-tech/ probably won't be of much practical use as a grocery hauler or picking up the kids from soccer practice. The http://www.abyss-headphones.com/index.html is the SRT Viper GTS of headphones. It's a no-holds-barred attempt to build the best-sounding headphone on the planet.The mostly metal design is heavy, almost 1.5 pounds; that's twice the weight of most full-size audiophile headphones. The heft was a concern until I put it on my head, the weight is evenly distributed, and since the AB-1266's real lambskin earpads barely contact my ears there's no "clamping" pressure at all. I can wear my glasses without having the earpads pushing against the glasses' sidepieces, and I can also hear environmental sounds from all around me. I know it doesn't look like it could possibly be comfortable, but the AB-1266 is, for many hours at a time. That's a huge advantage. The biggest downside is the price; the AB-1266 retails for $5,495!
