The debut product from California-based Santa Cruz Audio, the SC1000 delivers some of the best noise cancellation available in IEMs today. It turned heads at the LA Audio Show and the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest with its built-in high-performance power amplifier and high-fidelity stereo microphones. The latter give you total ambient sound control by effectively mixing ambient sounds in with your music. This allows you to completely silence the ambient sounds (great for those noisy commutes) or precisely tune their levels to your preferences using the slider on the amplifier/battery unit (in case you need to hear those around you). You can even use the SC1000 as a set of concert earplugs. The single dynamic moving-coil driver delivers an audiophile sound quality, the machined aluminum housing is complete with a windscreen, and the heavy-duty Mogami cable can be positioned either over or under the ear.
Note: At checkout, choose between black and nickel color options. Unlike other IEMs, Santa Cruz Audio recommends not inserting the SC1000 all the way in the ear canal. The active noise cancellation is able to isolate sound without doing so, and this gives your ears more room to breathe.
