ADL H128

The ADL H128 is balanced in a completely audiophile way. Rich tonal colours and textures with intimate and close harmonic interplay, a sense of space and quiet backgrounds are the key.

With these our latest breakthrough headphones we decided to take the performance of our now classic H118 headphones one step further. We wanted to retain the H118’s smooth, well-balanced sound that has captivated so many headphone enthusiasts, but we also wanted to improve dynamics and recreate the same “punch” that you hear during live performances—a lofty goal for a pair of headphones. With the new H128, we’ve succeeded at reaching that goal. At ADL we determined that the best way to accomplish this was to design and develop a completely new driver from scratch with the help of our engineers at Furutech and sound tune the headphones with input from a team of renowned Japanese audio commentators.

  • Dynamic closed-back circumaural headphones
  • Furutech designed high noise attenuation and low distortion tailor-made diaphragms
  • 40mm extra-large high-flux α (Alpha) Cryo-treated magnet • High quality PEEK trembler film

BeyerDynamic

T 1

TOP QUALITY "MADE IN GERMANY"

The T 1 stands for top sound quality and precise workmanship like no other headphones from Beyerdynamic. It is the flagship of Beyerdynamic's premium range for the home and its unique Tesla technology sets new standards. The T 1 plays crystal clear, excels with faultless impulse fidelity and long-range, power sound quality. Its frequency range is extraordinarily harmonically tuned; its reproduction is spatially transparent and offers enjoyment of music for the most demanding of listeners..

SILKY-SMOOTH WARMTH MEETS PRECISE BASS

The second generation of this high-end model impresses thanks to a new, even further enhanced tuning with a touch more warmth and musicality that will delight audiophile listeners. Moreover, a carefully intensified bass gives fans of contemporary music, in particular, the low-frequency foundation that they are looking for.

TESLA TECHNOLOGY FOR GENUINE MUSIC ENTHUSIASTS

Tesla technology uses innovative sound transducers with over 1.0 Tesla (unit of measure for the magnetic flux density). The headphones therefore permit practically twice the volume of conventional models. Thanks to the enhanced efficiency the electric signal is converted into sound vibrations with virtually no loss of performance. The T 1 therefore offers greater performance reserves for dynamic and authentic musical fireworks.

STUDIO-QUALITY PLUG-IN CABLE

The new edition of the T 1 with textile-covered connection cable and screwable jack plug provides for optimum sound transmission. Its conductors, made from ultra-pure OCC copper, are among the best the industry has to offer. It can be removed from the headphones and, if required, exchanged for an optional cable with 4-pin XLR connector. This enables users with a headphone amplifier with the right outputs to take advantage of 'symmetrical transmission'.

HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS – ELEGANT DESIGN

The elegant appearance of the T 1 rounds off the technical fine details with the individually selected construction right down to the tiniest detail. The open earcups covered with a delicate metallic grill and subtle colour shades round off the premium appeal of this headphone model. The T 1 received the international design prize "Red Dot design award" for this in 2010.Soft, velour ear cushions made from hollow fibre are further hallmarks of the new generation of the T 1. They transport warmth and moisture away from the head, enabling the listener to enjoy music for hours without any unpleasant build-up of heat. A memory foam layer beneath the velour cover makes the ear cushions exceptionally soft.When not in use, the headphones can be stored in a luxurious hard case with a hinged lid. Not only is this ideal for transporting the headphones, but also perfect for displaying the classic piece next to your hi-fi system at home.You will enjoy the T 1 most impressively with the A 2 headphone amplifier from beyerdynamic – the "dream team" for true music lovers.

T51i

Like its sibling T 51 p, the focus for design of the T 51 i is delivering unrivalled sound quality. With new and improved drivers the headphones deliver in an inspiring way – right from the first moment. A particularly deep bass response and transparent, clear highs are apparent from the T 51 i due to the common properties that make all Tesla headphones so special: high efficiency and low distortion. The result: a clear, powerful sound across the entire frequency range, even at low levels. The closed design of the T 51 p also isolates external noise very effectively.

$400


iDX 200 iE

EXCELLENT SOUND

An extremely thin copper wire in the voice coil supplies lightning-fast responds to any change in voltage. As a result the iDX 200 iE provides a transparent sound reproduction. Especially the trebles are gracile and precise. Optimized filter tunings enhance balanced bass and mids.

PERFECT FIT

A perfect fit is mandatory to bring off the full sound quality, plus it ensures a comfortable fit in order to listen to music for a longer period of time. Therefore the scope of delivery includes 10 different eartips: 5 silicone eartips, 2 flange eartips and 3 pairs of Comply™ foam eartips.

Features

Sound Isolating Design
Comfortable sound isolating sleeves block up to 37 dB of ambient noise.  Sound isolation technology prevents outside noise from interfering with your listening experience, whether onstage or on-the-go.  Shure Sound Isolating Earphones require a proper fit to achieve the best sound.

Ergonomic, professional design
Lightweight, low-profile shape with optimized nozzle angle is designed to rest comfortably in the ear.
Over-the-ear configuration keeps cables out of the way.
Detachable Cable with Wireform Fit

Durable Kevlar™ reinforced cable allows easy replacement or customization.
Formable wire ensures secure placement, and over the ear configuration keeps cables out of the way.
Gold-plated MMCX Connector has a lock-snap mechanism allowing 360 degree rotation for comfortable fit.
Premium Fit Kit Includes

Sound Isolating Sleeves
The role of the included sound isolating sleeves is twofold: blocking ambient noise and ensuring a comfortable, customized fit. Because every ear is different, the Fit Kit includes three sizes (S, M, L) of the flex and black foam sleeves as well as 1 pair of triple flange and 1 pair of universal fit yellow foam sleeves. Experiment with the size and style that creates the best fit for you. A good seal is key to optimizing sound isolation and bass response as well as maximizing comfort during extended wear.

Carrying Case
A durable and compact carrying case is included to provide a convenient, tangle-free solution to store and travel with your earphones.

1/4" Adapter
An 1/8" (3.5 mm) to 1/4" converter for all Shure earphones that offers a solution for home stereos or other applications with 1/4" jacks.

Volume Control (level attenuator)
 Allows for comfortable listening from any high-output audio source, including airplane armrests. 

Airline Adapter
Optimizes compatibility with European airplane armrests.
