The Next Generation of Layla

Since then, there have been two limited-edition releases of universal fit Layla, "Carbon Fiber Edition," and "Full Metal Jacket." Each generation stunned the market as industry's first full Carbon Fiber earphone and then the first full Titanium earphone available. The newest and third generation is the most exciting yet: Layla AION.

Sonic Tube Chassis™

3D printed chambers house the 12 driver configuration and implement freqphase technology, allowing for a smaller shell design without compromising on sound quality.

freqPhase™

Patented technology ensures the correct phase and time alignment of all frequencies, resulting in the most accurate music reproduction of any earphone available.

Acoustic Sound Chamber™

Recessed tube system keeps sweat away and alleviates the need for excessive cleaning.

Machined Carbon Fiber Shell

Each Layla AION begins as a carbon fiber block formed by compressing hundreds of layers of resin-infused carbon fiber fabric. After undergoing an initial machining process, and then a secondary hand shaping process, Layla AION is precision tuned using state-of-the-art equipment and assembled by hand. 
A striking faceplate design of red and black Pearloid with oversized chrome logos makes Layla AION one of the most visually appealing universal fit earphones yet.

A built-in O-ring keeps the connection between the cable and earpiece sweat proof. This robust cable will not oxidize and features upgraded memory wire around the ear.
