Blaz Erzetick has a small enthusiast company that focuses on HeadFi, preferably in combination with handmade products. He himself is a man with a background in the music industry, and in addition to several CD releases has also made two Demo CDs called Gold and Gold II.
The product range consists of five different headphone amplifiers, and of three model series with headphones, all of which are handmade. We wrote about the smallest model Thalia when it was launched a couple of years ago, and now is the time for a major update of the two largest models - Mania and Phobos.
The headphones have always had a very strong distinctive character in their design. It is quite rustic design language used in the headphones. We can recognize design features from some models from both Audeeze and Abyss, but the octagonal houses in different woods give Erzetich an unmistakable distinctive character.
The new V2021 by Mania and Phobos is now produced from CNC-milled aluminum, instead of stainless steel that was used in the V2018 models. It is otherwise a common news in V2021 that the metal part of the house also has an octagonal shape, while this previously only applied to the surrounding part in wood. The transition from steel to aluminum has also helped to reduce weight, and together with a new carbon fiber headband, it must also be assumed to increase comfort.
Erzetich also claims to have changed the tuning, with more precise bass as a result.
