And the measurements of the driver in our Rosewood shell.

Measurement is based on IEC711 coupler, a customized USB sound card and Win10 PC running ARTA software.

The frequency response (Notice the curve is almost identical as original IE80 at mid and treble, and having better extension at the 20-50Hz sub-bass).  


The CSD (Cumulative Spectral Decay) – note from 1K to 12KHz, the decay is very consistent, meaning minimized interference and clear sound.

The Pulse Response – note the short period <2.5ms offering high resolution 

The  Burst Decay – again, note the consistency among different bands, and there are only few burst at resonance points at 6K and 10Khz.

THD and D2 – Note the yellow line is the THD of the measurement system and need to deduced from the total THD. The Also notice the D2 taking majority of the total THD, meaning the sound character is smooth and sweet. 


Note: the dynamic drivers have been paired to ensure sound and quality fully balanced between right and left channels. Therefore we don’t offer single unit.  

Proceed with caution: dynamic driver is with extremely fragile (1~5μm) diaphragm and can be easily damaged in following situations.

  • Soldering: overheated (>250 degree C) soldering iron or overtime soldering (>2s) may permanently damage the driver. Please managed down both in your DIY.
  • Installation: the driver has Sintered NdFeB Magnetic inside with extremely strong attraction power. Damage may caused by attracting anything hitting the fragile diaphragm. 
  • Others: applying high-voltage, storing in high temperature/humidity environment… all may cause unrecoverable damage.
