What’s the fit-style of the IEM-2Xs?

The IEM-2Xs sit deep inside inside the ear canal. This forms a seal, blocking outside noise and piping sound directly into your ear.

What are the IEM-2Xs typically used for?

We designed the IEM-2Xs to be a versatile product - both as a "critical listening" device, and simply a great sounding workhorse earbud. Think of this product as an audiophile's "everyday carry" earbud.

What if the ear tips don’t fit my ear?

We provide three different sized ear tips(small, medium and large). One of these sizes will likely seal properly with your ear. Most varieties of aftermarket ear tips will fit the IEM-2X.

What is the point having of two drivers?

Each of the IEM-2X’s drivers reproduces a different range of frequencies. The Balanced Armature driver works by passing an electric current through a coil, which is wrapped around an armature suspended between two magnets. BA drivers are typically better at producing higher frequencies.

The other driver is a traditional dynamic driver, which has a larger diaphragm and is able to produce lower frequencies.

When working together, the drivers deliver detailed mid and high frequencies and a powerful low frequency response.
