Hyland Headphones is a boutique manufacturer of headphones based in Watford, on the outskirts of London, UK.

The British HiFi Brand has just introduced their newest headphones: the Eclipse, the first closed-back model in the firm’s line-up, and the Venus, the latest step up in the open-back range.

The new headphones are the latest products of Hyland Headphones’ research and development and feature the brand’s approach to building their products with care, and in small quantities, from beautiful, ethically sourced hardwoods.


The closed-back Hyland Headphones Eclipse uses a complex cup design machined from separate pieces of wood in a two-step, two-day process, to give a sound quality that is the equal of their open-backed designs, but with the advantage of the passive noise cancelling that makes a closed-back design so appealing. The cup features an inner and outer chamber, with sound-absorbent damping in the outer chamber to ensure no stray reflections colour or distort the sound that reaches the listener’s ear. The multi-wood design of the Eclipse also allows for additional customisation options. The Eclipse weigh around 450g depending on the wood and cost £850.

The Venus is Hyland Headphones’ flagship open-backed design. They weigh 360g and cost £650. Both headphones feature large and luxurious sheepskin leather and memory foam pads as standard, but the Venus also comes with a separate pair of hybrid pads that give the opportunity to tune both the sound (to a more neutral signature) and comfort of the headphone straight out of the box. Both models use the same 50mm 32ohm dynamic drivers.

All Hyland Headphones models also now come with handmade cables from NLovell Audio as standard and are packaged in a hand-branded wooden box and with a hand-printed protective drawstring bag.

Hyland Headphones’ unique, super low volume production workflow allows a fully bespoke service, with almost any and every aspect of the headphones customisable upon request.

Alex Hyland told us: “With the launch of the Eclipse and the Venus, we can finally show you the results of more than two years of research and development. We are very proud to say that the closed-back Eclipse, our first closed-back model, offer a sound quality usually associated with open-back headphones, while the Venus is a further evolution of the previous models that our customers learned to know and love – just with an added “romantic” touch. In keeping with our tradition, we love to work with our customers to create products that they love, allowing them to choose every part of their new headphones from the wood of the earcups to the material of the headband, from the connectors on the cable to the sound signature.”

HiFi Pig Says: It is great to find out about this new British Brand and we are really looking forward to trying out their headphones soon.
