Overview

Our take on the Pryma 1

Pryma 1 over-the-ear headphones combine audiophile sound and cutting-edge style. They're designed and handcrafted in Italy by Sonus faber — makers of fine speakers that grace museums and art galleries as well as living rooms all over the world. The Pryma 1's lightweight aluminum earcups and microfiber-lined genuine leather headband and ear cushions mean that these headphones are as comfortable as they are stylish. Different-colored headbands are available separately, and ear cushions will be out soon too, so you can swap these pieces out for a custom look.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got the PRYMA 1s as a replacement for another set of phones I returned to Crutchfield and was most impressed with them upon arrival as they are lovely! BUT First off ...you must put them together. This seemed rather intimidating right out of their lovely box but then was deliciously simple. The leather cups fit via a leather strap and you simply place them on adjusting to your sapien sized head and lock them in by turning small metal tabs. I put on them on my headphone experienced brain container and felt mine eyes and ears suddenly lifted (yes lifted), into a sonic scape of sound that was brilliant yet sublime and most pleasant in all ways aural and physical. Comfort and cascading tones emminated from them with ease and I fell into their world most humbly and submitted to their power like a mutant lover. Are they as good as my 1000 dollar phones? Its close I must say. In this life I have MANY sets of aural head clamps and these are very very nice. They really deserve a 4 1/2 star rating but since I could not give that and a 4 star seemed too low I gave the ultimate prize evaluation and feel not at all unjustified to do so. They are beautifully made and offer a sound unlike many cans before them as it is a solid world of highs and lows and that precious mid world in between that blends the high and low world into a soft and succulent soundscape that trenscends an honest portrayal of music most luscious and isnt that what it

Pros: They are a design gem and the sound is price worthy and then some.

Cons: mmmmm ill have to think long and hard on that one.
