Phiaton PS 200 review

Punchy and detailed, but prone to sibilant treble Tested at £150

Our Verdict

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

For

  • 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.
