SLOVENIAN boutique headfi manufacturer Erzetich Audio has two new versions of its acclaimed entry-level Thalia headphones, as part of its Art Series and Limited Edition lines. The Thalia headphones are claimed to be “the world’s first handcrafted audiophile portable headphones”.
Thalia headphones have been designed specifically for use with portable devices, including phones, tablets, DAPs and portable DAPs.
“Made from wood and metal, they are noted for their large soundstage and open-cup design… they keep wearers safe by ensuring external sounds are not blocked entirely. They come complete with signature octagonal cups and silver-plated oxygen-free braided copper wire with gold-plated connectors,” according to the company.
The Art Series Thalia offers a variety of combinations in colour, texture and type of sanding, so each pair going out is unique in looks – the owner is assured that his unit is “a truly one-of-a-kind” product. Each pair costs €699.
The Limited Edition Thalia moves away from the linden wood used on the standard.
“We thought that it might be cool to have other types, too. So we made some experiments with different kinds of wood and walnut looked a nice addition. The walnut headphones were designed after the Erzetich team experimented with various types of wood.
“This is the brand’s first Limited Edition series and offers the same rich, super-detailed flawless audio quality as their standard headphones.”
Only 20 pairs of the Limited Editions will be manufactured, at €649 per pair.
Both the Art Series and Limited Edition models retain the sonic performance and technical specs of the standard Thalia – 32 ohm impedance, dynamic 40mm titanium drivers, detachable silver-plated OFC cable and metal frame.
They’re available for purchase from the Erzetich Audio website now.
