About this deal

Another trade-off for affordability is that there’s only a single pair of cushions in the box, so you don’t get any alternatives to try like some of its other headphones. It is not on the level of open back alternatives and the image placement is not as accurate as some of those either, but it is good enough. The bass elevation isn’t overdone, however, and I didn’t pick up on any artificial warmth in the mids. Moving into the midbass, this sensation is less present (although there are still hints) and these regions have a hint of warmth to them without being overly exaggerated. This reminded me of the ZMF Verite , which had a receding upper midrange, but resulted in a very convincing reproduction.

My graph is the average of several rounds of measurements with different positions, and throwing out anomalous individual measurements.It was important to us that the listener could enjoy the Athena for long periods of time without fatigue.

I mentioned in my review of the Thieaudio Ghost recently that they weren’t really exciting but were more of a blank canvas which could be tailored with some EQ. And I believe this discrepancy between measurement and perception is strongly associated with what ISO equal loudness contour around 80-90 phon suggests.Linsoul Audio will not be responsible for parcels that have been damaged during the transit process. Measurements​As usual, I encourage readers to carefully note several key points regarding my measurements. At HiFiManiac, we don’t just review audio gear; we obsess over it, and we also believe in the power of collaboration. When I want a more intimate presentation, I find they present a full bodied sound that is pretty natural and doesn't stab your ears.
