Audiolab M-Ear 4D Earphones
Audiolab has drafted in ACS to help design its first headphones. ACS is renowned for making in-ear monitors across a range of industries, including live music, broadcasting and motorsports, and also has its own consumer in-ear range.
Both M-EAR models feature ACS technology, including SSI (‘sound stage imaging’) which aims to widen the soundstage. They also incorporate balanced armature drivers – the M-EAR 2D has a two-way, two-driver design, while the M-EAR 4D has a three-way design with four drive units. The M-EAR 4Ds’ bass drivers also have a ported balanced armature design.
The M-EAR 2Ds and M-EAR 4Ds come with a 1.45m detachable cable, six pairs of memory-foam ear tips in three different sizes, and a carry case.
There’s also an in-line microphone for hands-free calling, which is designed to work well in noisy environments.
Audiolab chose ACS to help design its first headset. ACS is well-known for manufacturing in-ear monitoring devices in a variety of industries, including live music, radio, and motor sports, and has its own in-ear device consumer group. Both M-EAR headphones use ACS technology, including SSI (Sound Field Simulation), to create a large sound field. They use a moving iron unit - M-EAR2D is a two-frequency dual unit, and M-EAR4D is a three-way four-unit unit.
