Techpowerup highly recommends Phoenix
" The dynamics aren't going to best a $500 planar set such asthe HIFIMAN Edition XS, but the Phoenix currently costs half as much courtesy discounted pricing from readily accessible vendors. But it gets way more things right as-is, and $250 is smack dab in the middle of where I truly believe you will get the best value for your money when it comes to headphones. The competition is tough, yet Sivga carved out a niche for the Phoenix where few others are present. Good job overall!"
