Audeze Announces Euclid Closed-Back Planar IEM
Audeze launches its first closed-back planar in-ear monitors, named Euclid.
The Audeze Euclid takes the Californian-company's headphone know-how and puts it in closed-back in-ear design that features precision-milled aluminium casings and the highest dynamic range in their class, according to the brand.
Naturally, the Euclid are packing Audeze's patented technologies such as Uniforce voice coils and Fazor waveguides, all of which work together to produce the manufacturer's signature sound from the 18mm planar magnetic drivers with a quoted 10Hz – 50kHz frequency range.
According to the spec sheet, the Euclid is further blessed with 105 dB/mW efficiency and a max SPL well over 120dB leading the brand to boast that this hands the Euclid “the highest dynamic range of any in-ear in their size category.”
The drivers sit in an aluminium body finished with a carbon fibre insert and matt black finish which all tips the scales at 7.5g a side. We expect a comfortable fit too, thanks to the 5mm diameter sound port and range of Spin-Fit Silicone and Comply Foam ear tips that come bundled with the Euclid.
The Audeze Euclid feature gold plated MMCX connections and is delivered with a 3.5mm tangle-free braided cable. However, there will soon be an option for Bluetooth and 4.4mm balanced cables slated to arrive in March this year.
The Audeze Euclid are available now for US$1,300 (~S$1,728)
