High-Resolution In-Ear Headphones

The High Resolution-certified HEM series set a new standard for accuracy, speed and comfort. Designed for music lovers and professionals, these innovative in-ear headphones offer budding artists, home recording musicians and DJs incredible audio reproduction. Combining the latest balanced armature driver technology with advanced crossover design, the HEM series reveals a wider frequency range for the ultimate listening experience.

Hi-Res Performance

The HEM series of in-ear headphones lets you hear every track in exceptional clarity — for rich, full-bodied sound. The combination of cutting-edge design and Hi Res-certified balanced armature driver technology results in balanced sound with crystal-clear highs and explosive bass.

Crossover Design

The HEM series incorporates a three-way phase-coherent crossover design that achieves linear-phase performance. The result is a natural, three-dimensional soundstage, lightning-fast transients and crystalline transparency.

Knowles™ Balanced Armature Drivers

Featuring the latest generation of balanced armature drivers, the HEM series can reach frequencies as high as 40,000Hz — twice the frequency range of other balanced armature IEMs. Each HEM model houses either four (HEM8), three (HEM6), two (HEM4) or one (HEM2) Knowles™ balanced armature drivers in each earbud — designed to produce pure, authentic sound from a compact body.

Pure Sound, Wherever You Go

Two tangle-free cables are included so you can choose between a microphone and in-line remote for convenience and a high-end cable for the best possible performance. The high-end cable is made of OFC and silver, while the 2-pin cable connectors are a proprietary mix of silver and copper with a separate ground return for each channel.

Vibration-Free

Constructed with acoustically calculated, vibration-free LexanTM earpieces, the HEM series allows for prolonged listening without fatigue at any volume level. The in-ear monitors are lightweight, making them ideal for use at home, in a recording studio on stage or on the go.

Superior comfort

For maximum comfort and performance, HEM2 comes with two types of ear tips in a range of sizes for a snug, slip-free fit. These include Comply soft memory foam ear tips which shape themselves to fit perfectly in the ear canal, offering superior isolation from noise and creating incredible bass response.
