Astell & Kern Michelle Limited In Ear Monitors (Universal IEM)
Preorders Available, Arrival in October 2017 Michelle Limited, a special edition product produced in Korea, is the result of a dedicated collaboration between Astell&Kern, a universally respected audio technology company, and Jerry Harvey Audio, an industry leader in customized earphones.
Expanding beyond the existing Siren series, which is loved by audiophiles worldwide, Michelle Limited lets more price-conscious listeners experience the rich, vivid sounds Astell&Kern and Jerry Harvey Audio are known for.
Michelle Limited features freqphase technology by Jerry Harvey Audio, and an adopted 3-way, 3-driver to deliver all ranges of sound.
Market-proven technologies from Astell&Kern coupled with the experience of Jerry Harvey Audio, a trailblazer in the custom earphones industry, created Michelle Limited to connect audiophiles everywhere.
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.
3Way 3BA Drivers
Enjoy the full range of sonic details, thanks to the sophisticated 3 balanced amateur driver design, fused with Freqphase technology.
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.
