About our S6 Series
The S6 - our first planar IEM.
We started development of our own planar IEM in 2018 with our first prototype planar speaker design in a 11mm size, the performance of the prototype was everything we expected from the planar-magnetic driver but we wanted to make our final product a bit more special.
We challenged our engineering team to bring the size down to fit in our award-winning R2-Series housing design without losing any of the performance & clarity of the planar drivers.
Easier said than done.…rolling eyes, grinding teeth….the works!
It took us much longer than we expected, with the effects of the pandemic, logistics delays & everyone’s lives turned upside down, we have got our very first planar driver IEM ready.
The housing is a lightweight aluminum alloy with an incredibly unique Titanium-Oxide treatment giving you an amazing satin finish & with an added polished blue/red ring for left & right identification.
The cables are our newly design titanium-kevlar sleeve which incorporate an updated version of the MMCX connectors giving the users a comfortable & tangle-free cable.
As with the R2 series, we partnered up with Surefire USA with their EarLock® retention kit, designed, developed & used by our military's special forces & law enforcement to keep their communications earpieces in place in extreme mobility situations.
The S6 now comes with not one but 3 pairs memory foam in-ear cushions & with a proper fit, can easily achieve near 34dB passive ambient noise attenuation (NRR 28dB).
As with the R2 Series, these are superlight & super comfortable. The EarLock® retention kit kept the IEMs securely in place, no matter how hard we tried to make them fall out. The IEMs stayed in place & the sound was amazing.
Our new S6 IEM speaker designs & entire body designs are now protected by patents in the U.S. & other countries.
