EARPHONES COMPARISON

HEADPHONES

Headphones are speakers attached to the headband. They are often equipped with serious noise-cancelling properties that improve listening quality while eliminating ambient sound. Headphones can be placed either above or around the user's ears. Due to their size, more powerful drivers can be placed in the headphones, which, as a rule, go beyond the headphones, primarily in the low-frequency region. But thanks to new technologies, driver sizes are significantly reduced every year. The bulkiness of this category reduces mobility to the wearer and can interfere with high physical activity.

EARBUDS

This is an open type of earphones that is similar in size to IEMs, but is not located inside the ear canal. Instead, they are held in place by the external structures of the ear, primarily the conch. Some models have additional wings and support structures that help hold them. Apple AirPods is a bright example of such of kind earbuds. Because they do not seal the ear, the earbuds provide much greater surround sound. This is far from ideal for professionals and audiophiles. This type of headphone is more suitable for those who listen to music while physical activity, to have additional awareness of their surroundings, which can be an important safety feature. This is usually the least expensive option, but also the lowest quality.

IN-EAR MONITORS (IEMS) OR EARPHONES

While the technical innovations in earphones continue to improve their quality and versatility, in-ear monitors or IEMs, are quickly gaining popularity in the music industry. Similar to headphones, they also seal the ear to eliminate ambient noise preserving bass. Instead of sealing off the entire ear, IEMs have a component that extends into the ear canal. In universal IEMs this extension is often fitted with foam or silicone cushions for retention and comfort.

CUSTOMISED IN-EAR MONITORS (IEMS)

Contrary to universal IEMs, customized ones have an individual fit and are molded to the user's ear canal and inside of the ear, sealing it. In this case, customised IEMs are tailored according to wearer ear impressions using recent innovations such as 3D-printing and precisely repeat the shape of the auricle and canal of the wearer. Depending on the technology used inside the monitor, the sound quality can be very high. The carrier will hear music as well as himself. This option is ideal for professionals and audiophiles, those who constantly use monitors for their professional activity. In addition, such monitors, along with the fact that they are individually designed, can be completely unique in an exclusive style made of various materials, materials on request, arrival one-of-a-kind, unique cannot be individuality and style musician style convey individual musician style I already like it, I already work here.

HEADPHONES, EARBUDS VS IEMS

Since technology does not stand still, in any case, new models of high-quality in-ear monitors or IEMs are far ahead and already surpassed even high-quality headphones or earbuds. But even when choosing earphones from a large number of different types of personal hearing aids and in-ear headphones, sound quality and ear health are always crucial. Even if the monitors themselves are excellent, the sound will suffer if the tab is weak. Therefore, it is very important to be able to get earphones made under wearer's ear and filled with the latest technologies that preserve the health of the ear despite the high sound quality.

DEEP-TECHS

AURUM.AUDIO has created unique high-end IEMs tailored to each individual experience that maximize the sound insulation and enhance the low-frequency response when comfortably wearing.

The X5PRO with 5 BA-drivers and 5-Way crossover, much like other AURUM.AUDIO custom models are offered in a wide variety of looks.
