High-End Dynamic IEM

The EM5813 is the debut IEM from Cardas Audio, an Oregon-based, family-run manufacturer that specializes in premium audio cables and component parts. The result of years of meticulous design by founder George Cardas, it’s efficient, natural, musical, and complete with an eye-catching copper finish. The 11.45-millimeter dynamic driver features a neodymium magnet drive motor and a PEN-type thin-film diaphragm. This makes for, according to one Head-Fi reviewer, an “accurate, detailed, balanced, and, most of all, alive and engaging” sound. The review goes on to say, “Buy a set, and you will find yourself having it in your ears all the time.” Fitted with the high-quality Clear Light cable Cardas is known for, the EM5813 comes with three sets of ear tips.
