Let It Be

Be (Beryllium) is our highest-awarded IEM. It is known as the master-of-all-music, failure-at-none. Our other IEMs may do better in some genres but for all around excellence Be is where most end their search. Revealing enough to be a true reference IEM but forgiving enough to use on any source.

Beryllium is among the lowest density stable metals, but also has among the highest Young’s modulus values (a ratio of the stiffness) and a very high internal speed of sound.

This results in high efficiency and extremely low distortion as the diaphragm does not bend on its own, moves homogeneously, and dissipates internal energy very well.

This rare combination of performance attributes is what endows the Be IEMs with their freakish ability to compete with the best Beryllium transducer-based headphones on the market, at any price.

What’s New With the Be?

We’ve done a few great changes to Be – and the whole line – to improve performance and user experience. This starts with a new material for the entire enclosure. We worked for 3 years with Eastman Chemicals, one of the largest plastics companies in the world, to research, develop, and quantify new polymers for acoustic applications.

Our research led us to a specific blend of their Tritan™ copolyester. This material proved to be not just rigid, but acoustically dead with lower energy storage and transmission than the polycarbonate we were using. Stray resonance and noise is lowered even more.

We also refined the external and internal geometry to make it more anti-resonant, so clarity is increased alongside the improvements of the materials used. The result is the most stable, lowest resonant IEM enclosure ever made. All with the lowest weight enclosure possible.

I See a Detachable Cable? What’s That About?

We have also developed our own 2.5mm jack: the IDEEL connector. This connector is the world’s smallest 2.5mm jack, measuring just 3.6mm across, and a tiny 9.5mm mounting depth. This jack allows us to use the very robust 2.5mm TS plug in our tiny IEMs. No more delicate MMCX or difficult 2 pin plastic connectors needed.
