The fifth in the Siren Series, Michelle, derives its name from the Guns N' Roses song 'My Michelle'. 'My Michelle' was featured in Guns N Roses debut studio album, 'Appetite for Destruction', in dedication to the lead guitarist Slash's friend Michelle Young. Michelle had always wanted someone to write a song that contained her story. 'My Michelle' represents Michelle's life in its entirety, from her drug addiction to her mother's death, and even her father's time in the adult entertainment business. In his autobiography, Slash explains how Michelle abandoned her old life and successfully started a new life after the release of the song.
The bass driver was designed for an even steeper low-pass effect with no distortion.
The "Michelle" applies Jerry Harvey Audio's patented "Freqphase" technology, which uses precisely cut tube lengths for each driver to minimize the phase shift of each frequency. This allows for the High, Mid, and Low drivers to be aligned to 1/100ms for the most ideal phase curve. It ensures the correct time alignment and phase of all drivers resulting the most accurate music reproduction in the industry.

Ergonomic Shell design with 3D printing technology
The design of the "Michelle" represents an exhaustive research and development project on the ergonomics of IEM fit.
The new state of the art 3D printed shell gives "Michelle" an advanced fit that represents a significant breakthrough on IEM shell shape and the angle of the nozzle, resulting in unprecedented comfort and acoustic seal.
The "Michelle's" performance now shares the performance characteristics of IEMs costing 3 times as much.
Silver Tinsel Cable with detachable 2pin connector
Conventional straight cables do not handle the frequent bending of cables and often short out. The intertwined cable disperses the stress to the cable and offers better resilience. It's also easier to wear around the outer ears as the cable shape can be easily adjusted for the best fit.
It is very lightweight and more durable than nylon, and has the advantage of being very tough. Because it is made of light weight organic polymers such as carbon, nitrogen and hydrogen, allowing it to be 5 times more stronger than steel. Kevlar is particularly strong against friction and is commonly used for body armor and aircraft tires due to its excellent shock absorption.
