CHARYBDIS is a maritime monster in Greek mythology, and we can see why boutique manufacturer Erzetich used the name for its new planar-magnetic wired headphones. The industrial design and looks are anything but subtle.
“The design of these headphones was perfected to provide a mature sound that puts emphasis on the music, while keeping their own character out of the way,” says company founder Blaž Erzetič. “They were developed for experienced music lovers in mind who want to enjoy their favourite songs without any compromises.”
Cutting edge planar-magnetic drivers allow music lovers to savour every note and nuance of their favourite music while thick pads crafted from velour or protein leather provide soft positioning no matter how long the listening session.
“Made in the EU, the Charybdis headphones are manufactured to the highest specifications, including CNC-milled aluminium cups for a firm driver grip.”
The open-back design, with detachable cable, is completely serviceable and come complete with a generous two-year limited warranty, has an impedance of 43 ohms and weighs 740g.
The Charybdis, which costs €3,000, comes a few months ahead of the perfect amp to complement it, aptly names Scylla, but the headphones will work in any high-end setting, and even in the recording studio.
