After winning over the audiophile world with their line of professional DJ equipment and acclaimed e-Q series of IEMs, Ortofon took their technology to the next level for their latest incarnation of HQ audio to go. Now featuring pure silver coils in the drivers and an adjusted sound profile, the Ortofon e-Q8 IEMs put some serious power right in your pocket.
Note: This drop is limited to 20 units.
Silver is one of the finest conductors out there, but the material isn’t exactly the easiest to work with. Undaunted by difficulty, Ortofon precision engineered pure silver coils inside each balanced armature driver, resulting in an entirely unique build and a spectacularly straightforward sound.
Giving you full strength across the entire range, the lows impress without overpowering, the mids stay right where they should, and the highs come in so clear that you’ll hear vocal flourishes you never knew existed. There can be touches of sibilance at the very edge of the range, but the new life given to guitars and other strings more than makes up for any temporary inconvenience. As these are IEMs, not a speaker system, the soundstage is limited, but still more than enough to get some decent instrument separation.
Perfect for pairing with your smart phone, the low impedance and naturally loud presentation let you get the full sound spectrum without lugging around a headphone amplifier. Thanks to the balanced range and included pairs of tips, you can listen to the Ortofon e-Q8 for hours without growing fatigued or overwhelmed. Ending in a heavy duty fabric-coated cable that resists tangles and looks pretty snazzy, the Ortofon e-Q8 IEMs combine unique looks and awesome sound to dazzling effect.
