We partnered with master driver manufacturers to produce the dynamic driver at the heart of the Lyra II. With nearly 30 years of transducer development and driver production experience, we worked together to develop a new and unique dynamic drivers with exceptional sonic qualities for our earphones.
The Right Stuff
Exceptional products are most often achieved by the coming together of many people and technologies are the right moment.
The Lyra II’s creation was no different. Thoughtful design and careful tuning of the earphone delivers a sound that will delight the most discerning audiophile.
Fit and Finish
Lyra II is offered with a PVD finish in a color we refer to as ‘Dusk’.
Our custom Beryllium Copper MMCX eliminates the traditional shortcomings of the connection and harnesses all of its benefits.
Beryllium Copper provides a robust mating mechanism; one that is typically made from soft brass. This selection of a harder material extends the life of the component and the earphone.
It makes replacing or upgrading your earphone cable care-free because you know this will not wear out the mating pins.
Comfort First Design
The design of our new Liquid Alloy Metal line offers an easy to wear size and comfortable shape. The housing is extremely durable and ready to stand up to demanding daily use.
Liquid Alloy Metal
The housing to every earphone plays an important part in shaping the sound that is delivered.
Selecting the right material for an earphone’s housing can be as important as selecting the proper driver because of the significant role it plays in the final sound of the earphone.
Excellent Physical and Sonic Qualities
When we were first introduced to the Liquid Alloy Metal we were impressed by the many benefits it could offer.
Superior mechanical strength, higher than Titanium
Extraordinary hardness enabling resistance to scratching or dents
Unique cosmetic appearance
Excellent anti-corrosion and chemical resistance
Environmental and human friendly, non toxic and allergen free
Excellent damping and vibration characteristics
Rare Earth Magnets
Neodymium rare earth magnets, the strongest type of permanent magnet commercially available are utilized in the Lyra II’s dynamic driver. This powerful and compact magnet ( 3.8mm x 1.2mm x 1.3mm) provides the magnetic field for the voice coil’s operation.
Close attention to detail is critical to delivering you the superior musical experience from our earphones. We test and pair each individual earphone, Left and Right, to establish its conformity to our firmly established tuning and performance criteria. The result is a pair of earphones made for each other that you can feel good about.
