Reference-Quality Audio in 3 Styles

For audiophiles who love the sizzle of a jazz cymbal, the diverse instrumentation of world music, or the excitement of rock, the Chord & Major tonal earphones are sure to impress. Made from stainless steel encased in natural wood, these aren’t your average all-rounders. Instead, they’re designed to bring out the defining elements of your favorite genre—with a compact, lightweight build that makes them easy to bring everywhere, and a glossy wood-and-metal aesthetic that stands out from the crowd. The 7’13 Jazz and 8'13 Rock models are a dark, brooding color, while the 5’14 World Music model has a lighter, more natural look.

Note: This drop’s base price is for the Chord & Major 7’13 Jazz Tonal or 8'13 Rock Tonal Earphones. At checkout, you’ll have the option to upgrade to the 5’14 World Music Tonal Earphones (+ $20).

Which One’s for You?

Find yourself listening to jazz and classical most of the time? Pick the 7’13 Jazz earphone. It delivers great bass extension for the deep, resonant lows of cello and bass guitar, along with the delicate nuance and energetic dynamics of vocals and brass. If you’re into traditional music from different cultures, try the 5’14 World Music earphone instead. It’s capable of capturing various instruments in full, vibrant detail, with a soundstage wide enough to replicate a live performance. All about rock? Go with the 8'13 Rock earphone for solid bass, powerful vocals, and driving rhythms. All three earphones feature a 4-foot-long Y-split cable that ends in a 3.5-millimeter stereo plug, gold-plated connectors, and anti-pull guard housing for reduced noise from touching wires.
