Both Astell & Kern and Beyerdynamic worked tirelessly to develop this product in a joint effort.

If you're searching for an In-Ear Monitor that can accurately reproduce audio across the frequency spectrum, the AK T8iE has been designed to meet & perhaps exceed your needs & expectations. With tight bass, balanced mids and transparent highs, an In-Ear Monitor has never sounded this good before.

Handmade in Germany, each Astell & Kern AK T8iE is crafted with the meticulous attention to detail and precision that one would come to expect and demand from an Astell & Kern product. Each AKT8iE is tested multiple times through Astell & Kern's extreme quality-control process. This ensures that each AK T8iE that leaves the factory is of the highest quality and durability.

So what is Tesla Technology?

Tesla Technology, emerging in 2009 and featured in the T 1 reference headphones has made its way into the AK T8iE. Tesla Technology ensures a balanced, distortion-free, transparent and neutral sound reproduction from the T8iE. This is achieved due to the high magnetic flux density inside the ring magnet.

Unlike Balanced Armature headphones, the AK T8iE doesn't have a separate transducer for the low-end, midrange or high-end frequencies. Because of this, the AK t8iE can avoid phase issues and audio quality degradation which sometimes plagues other IEMs/headphones.

The Design

The emphasis on design is obvious from the moment you begin unpacking the Astell & Kern AK T8iE in its luxurious packaging.

One of the biggest issues with In-Ears is that the cable often puts an unnecessary strain on the IEMs themselves which pulls the In-ear monitors outward from the ear. The Astell & Kern avoids this issue entirely due to the concha design. The cable runs rearward over the ear to prevent strain on the ears. This allows you to easily insert and keep your IEMs in your ears, without them feeling like they will fall out.

In addition to the concha design, the AK T8iE comes with five various sized anatomically shaped silicone tips & 3 pairs of Comply Foam tips which ensure the perfect fit.

If you have been searching for the perfect pair of In-Ear Monitors, Astell & Kern and Beyerdynamic has hand-crafted one incredible product. Call us on 1300 308 711, purchase online or come into the Brisbane store.
