HiFiMan RE800 In-Ear Monitor Earphones
The Gold Standard
In sound, quality and comfort, RE800 is Golden all around
While Brass made for the perfect housing material for the acoustics, it did not quite convey the fine richness of its audio output. Thus, the RE800 24k Gold Edition has been electroplated to give it a lustrous sheen that befitted the golden, rich audio inside.
The Topology Driver
HIFIMAN's utilization of advanced depositional technology and research makes for a driver unlike any other in the world. With the creation of Topological, Nano scale layer application technology, upon a driver diaphragm, allows for the manipulation of sound wave creation like never before. No other Driver technology allows for such control and precision resulting in clarity, detail and nuance such that it can best the worlds most complicated multi driver set ups but with none of the coherency and crossover issues.
What is a "Topology Diaphragm"?
The "Topology Diaphragm" or "Topology Driver" refers to the diaphragm with a special Nano particle coating applied to its surface. The distribution of the coating has distinct geometric patterns. By varying the surface pattern, compound used, the thickness or geometric pattern sound wave formation can be manipulated to achieve the desired audio effect and control. The idea behind the new Topology Diaphragm was inspired by Dr Fang Bian's Ph.D. thesis that "different Nano materials have differing structures and each of those materials have its own properties". Therefore, by carefully controlling the diaphragm surface structure you can yield different results in acoustic performance to a degree previously unobtainable.
The inadequate soundstaging produced by Balanced Armatures is caused by the way sound waves are formed by armature's multiple wave reflection and diffraction in the driver, which can cause high levels of distortion. Therefore, armature based IEMs have little breadth and yield a sound flat and without emotion.
The Diaphragm Distortions of Dynamic Drivers
Traditional dynamic drivers can produce frequency response alteration due to distortion and vibration across the diaphragm surface.
The Ideal Dynamic Driver
The Topology diaphragm structure used by HIFIMAN greatly reduces the uncontrolled diaphragm distortions, enabling the operational performance of dynamic IEM's to an approach to an ever superior, trend towards perfect wave control.
