The Cardas A8 Ear Speaker features the world's first Ultra Linear, Contour Field, Dual Magnet Driver - an entirely new dynamic driver with no permeable core, delivering deep bass, strong midrange, and soaring highs.
An all new design, the A8 Ear Speakers feature a 10.85mm Ultra Linear, Contour Field, Dual Magnet Driver - producing brilliant highs and deep bass.
The body of the A8 is machined from billet brass with a Golden Spiral curve, and finished with a rubberized coating.
The unique cable wraps the conductors around a fiber core, so that the conductors are never stressed when the cable is tugged.
The cable detaches at the center, allowing you to easily switch between the standard cable (with a single 3.5mm TRS plug) to alternative cables with connectors for players with balanced outputs from Ayre, Astell & Kern Pono.
Before using your A8 Ear Speakers, choose an ear-tip that provides a comfortable fit, and makes a good seal. A small black silicon tip is installed at the factory. This is a popular size & style, and works for many people. However we encourage you to try other tips. Several tips of various styles & materials are provided. The A8 Ear Speakers are also compatible with many of the aftermarket tips available today, including Comply "400" series.
Once an appropriate tip has been selected & installed, make sure the A8's cable is attached, with the 4-conductor (TRRS) plug going into the A8's splitter/connector.
The 3-conductor 1/8" TRS plug connects to your player (iPod/iPhone, Android, etc.).
Turn the sound down on your player before putting the A8 Ear Speakers in your ears and starting your music. Then gradually turn the music level up, not to exceed a reasonable listening level.
The Rubberized ABS coated body incorporates a Golden Spiral curve, as with the EM5813.
The lightweight, flexible cable has separate conductors for each channel
The cable disconnects at the joiner, so you can switch from a single-ended cable, to balanced
