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 (HEM6) 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 Lexan 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, HEM6 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.

“The Optoma NuForce HEM6 has convinced in this test. Tonally, Optoma offers a good alternative to over-ear receivers. Here, you notice that in-ear listeners have grown up. The HEM6 brings you closer to the music, especially on the go. They are also light and offer a secure fit with the Comply foam ear buds.”

“The HEM6 have met all, absolutely all requirements with the highest brilliance. Heights were reproduced crystal clear without sounding exaggerated or too hard, even if there were a alongside a deep groovy bass.”

“The separate drivers for heights, bass and mid-tones seem to absolutely meet the target and reproduce an incredible open, clear and airy sound, regardless of the situation.”

“The Optoma NuForce HEM6s might be an understated pair of headphones, but the quality of the sound they produce is truly phenomenal.”

“That it provides this level of sound quality is good, but to do it without sacrificing any of the convenience of in-ear headphones is truly phenomenal, and we also felt that the form factor makes for a very comfortable pair of headphones to wear.”

Verdict

“The Optoma NuForce HEM6s are a great sounding pair of headphones, and if you’re looking to spend this amount of money on a pair of in-ears then they’re a very strong contender.”

“They sound great, they’re comfortable to wear for long periods of time, and they should last a while.”

“Stepping up once again, we come to the HEM6 triple-BA IEM. These strike me as a marriage of the HEM2 and HEM4 sound signatures. You get the fuller, warmer bass + mids of HEM2 coupled with the upper end sparkle of HEM4.”

“If you prefer a bit more bass quantity, I could see you preferring HEM6 over HEM8. If you like things a bit leaner, HEM4’s your IEM. Not quite ready to spend that much, HEM2’s got you covered as one of the better tuned single-BA IEM I’ve heard to date.”

“Whether your average person will be able to hear that far is a different story, but it seemed the extra range allows a little more space in the overall sound signature, making for a top-notch soundstage. Transient sounds, like the quick tap of a snare drum, released faster than many other sets for more authentic percussion. We loved the extreme transparency- almost high contrast in the details, if just a touch warm and bright. Of course, you’re paying for the privilege of those extra drivers and the impressive feat of making the tiny package work so smoothly together”

Let’s make no bones about it, these are stunning earbuds.

The buds come separately and you can choose to attach them to a coiled fabric cable or a more standard inline phone one.

The earbuds are memory foam so they actually slurp into your ear canal, and as for sound bleed, there is none, at top volume. We tried. Repeatedly. They’re insane. They’re unnecessary. But that doesn’t stop them being spectacularly good.

“Every one of Depeche Mode’s brilliant break downs extrude through the HEM more fitting than through any other earphone in my vast arsenal. HEM2 was the wake-up call. HEM6 is the full English breakfast after the wake-up call.”

It’s hard not to love the NuForce HEM6s from Optoma. They come with everything you could possibly need from a high-end pair of headphones from multiple detachable cables (one with a remote and one without for better sound quality) to a range of earbuds that allow you to choose your level of noise-isolation.

But the most important reason why the NuForce HEM6 are our best pair of in-ear headphones is the sound quality. Their warm and rich sound is a pleasure to listen to, and they sound far more refined than their small size would suggest.
