Our Verdict 
Sound brilliant in many ways, but they're far too sibilant and bright at the top end, especially when playing compressed tracks

Punchy and attacking
Against 
Treble too sibilant and bright with compressed tracks

Making in-ears stand out from the crowd is tough, but adding what looks like a mini turbine to the back ought to do it.

In a lot of ways these Phiatons sound brilliant – they’re punchy and detailed, with the kind of rhythmic precision that adds real excitement.

Unfortunately they’re also far too sibilant, especially when playing compressed tracks.
