Astell & Kern Layla Reference Mastering In Ear Monitors

Astell & Kern

The first new model is the Layla. This all newflagship model is nothing short of stunning visually as well as sonically.
  • The second in the “Sirens Series” line, it is worthy of being named after possibly the most famous love song in Rock history. Recorded By Eric Clapton, with hisband Derek and the Dominos and released in 1970 on Layla and other Love songs.Layla was inspired by Clapton's unrequited love for Pattie Boyd, the wife of his friend George Harrison.

    Jerry Harvey, founder of Jerry Harvey Audio said, “The Layla is the 1st earpiece I've designed to be a reference/mastering IEM. Most IEMs I design have a live rock and roll tuning with a little more emphasis on the lows and low mids, accurate but warm. The Layla bass response when turned down is perfectly flat and when fully turned up has +13db of boostat 60Hz.

  • The Layla also has the most sophisticated crossover network ever put into a IEM. The shape of all crossover filters are all 4th order. This crossover circuit combined with the Freq-phase waveguide and new proprietary quad drivers deliver a audio quality that will truly put you at the mix position in the recording studio whether

    it's hearing exactly what the mixer/producer and band wanted you to hear, mixing your own tracks or performing live.”

    With the newly designed Layla Jerry Harvey has again combined his years of experience in live sound with the innovative technology that made his company the leader in in-ear monitor technology.
