A growing population and increasing time of listening to streaming music from mobile devices have made a pair of comfortable earphones with high cost–performance ratio of great importance. NuForce rolls out HEM1, an entry-level in-ear monitor to meet the need. Using Knowles™‘s full-range balanced armature driver and vibration-free Lexan™ enclosures, HEM1 offers a Hi-Res Audio performance as well as a comfortable and sealed fit for ear canals.
Knowles™Full-range Balanced Armature Drivers
Using Knowles™‘s most advanced full-range balanced armature driver which demonstrates output to 40kHz necessary to achieve Hi-Res Audio performance, HEM1 generates balanced sound whose frequencies are evenly spread across the entire frequency range. Knowles™, a world’s leading brand of Balanced Armature drivers, started with hearing aids development and extended its business to hi-end headphones.
Hi-Res, also known as High-resolution, is a certification Sony introduced. A Hi-Res Audio certified supports sampling rate higher than 96kHz and generates a clear and detailed sound.
HEM1 uses snail-shaped enclosures made of Lexan™, a proprietary robust thermoplastic polymer resin which reduces vibration and audio coloration. The lower shell was colored by vacuum evaporation with its surface shining along the contour and curves. The translucent upper shell allows seeing the mechanical structure inside.
