Cypher Labs LLC, recently released their first ever IEM, featuring three balanced armature drivers. Cypher Labs calls it the C6iem Triple Driver Earphones. According to the company, their first IEM is all about bass. Check out its features, specifications and price below.
For over 4 years Cypher Labs built high tech amplifiers, cables and accessories. Now they have applied all that audio expertise to their own universal fit in-ear-monitors. Using transducer drivers instead of the traditional dynamic driver so they can tune the output for high highs and rich deep bass. The look is ultra-cool chrome on carbon fiber, with a woven custom cable.
The Cypher Labs C6iem’s smoothly contoured ergonomics allow long-term comfortable wear and excellent insulation from background noise. The 3D printed shell and real carbon fiber back plate provide exacting audio characteristics. Memory wire on the cable ensures that the C6iem stays in place.
