Phiaton PS 500 Primal Series Headphones Sweepstakes

Register to win one of eight pairs of Phiaton PS 500 Primal Series Headphones (MSRP $299) Stereophile is giving away.

According to Phiaton, The PS 500 Primal Series headphones offer listeners "a soaring level of concert-hall sound quality, unmatched performance, and a high level of comfort. Phiaton Primal Series headphones are designed for those who appreciate the classic yet somewhat exotic look and feel of supple leather and leather-grade trim."

Keeping with this philosophy, the PS 500s feature hand-made, genuine leather outer cup housings and extra-plush ear cushions for comfort and a snug fit. These headphone also feature Phiaton’s 40mm Titanium Driver technology. "This combination of sound isolation and audiophile-grade music reproduction is ideal for listening to any type of music, from classical and jazz to hip-hop, rock and pop." Click here for more info.

Count me in. I've been a subscriber for over 8 years. Love the nagazine and the site. I guess that makes me a loyal reader and a kiss up.

I read the rules and it's only open to the US... Boooo :( Isn't Canada America light?

My Sennheiser HD595s are just about ready to give up the ghost (one side has a noisy voice coil rub) so I'm really serious about a new pair soon! I probably wouldn't have picked the Phiaton's as it's not a brand I'm familiar with. But since you guys are snooping around them maybe they're worth a check if they're available in the Great White North...
