Sonus Faber is a very famous name among Hi-Fists. Based in Italy for more than 30 years, this firm designs high-end loudspeakers (including Aida at more than €100,000), systems for Car Audio (partnership with Pagani for the Huyra, etc.), and now Headphones. Sound. Or rather ONE headset: the Pryma by Sonus Faber.
Pryma, an Italian beauty…
Handcrafted in Italy, these circum-auricular headphones first surprise with their elegance and luxurious finish. The Pryma is worthy of a haute couture piece! The removable real leather headband is mounted on shells designed using equally noble materials such as aluminum, copper, or stainless steel. Inside, there are 40 mm diameter transducers, with neodymium magnet, OFC copper coil and ultra-light mylar diaphragm.
Note also the presence of a detachable cable (quality internal welds), and the excellent listening comfort provided by these Pryma headphones. The unusual shape of the ear cups has something to do with it! In terms of sound, there is a lot of naturalness and warmth, which makes it perfectly suited to long listening. It can be controlled by any smartphone or walkman thanks to an impedance of 32 Ohms and a sensitivity of 118 dB.
Several colors, each more luxurious than the other, are available: Rose Gold, Heavy Gold, Pure Black, Carbon Marsala or Coffee & Cream. As usual, you can find this Italian Pryma beauty on permanent demo in the BH showrooms in Boulogne and Paris.
NB: You can see the Pryma headphones in Beyonce’s Lemonade clip. Very nice product placement 🙂
