A refreshing oddity. The Phantom was my favorite earphone from Portafes and probably the most impressive earphone I’ve ever heard in terms of timbre. Its sound was just terrific, incredibly balanced and especially linear.

“When I spoke to Dean Vang at Canjam London and asked him how he managed to get the coherence the Zeus manages over both the 7 and 8 crossover setup, he just remarked that he tunes the IEM for how a singer or musician would want it to sound – as close to natural as possible, no more or less. It’s a simple ethos, but seems to be remarkably astute, as this is what makes the Zeus so compelling and special to me.”
