The original Emerald was released three years ago, and it has been warmly welcomed by many of our customers as one of the best sounding products. Naturally, nothing is perfect. Some complained about its color, and some voiced disagreement with its green color. In the Japanese market, the Emerald covers itself with a black sheath, using only an emerald colored y-split part to reveal its identity. Since then, although we were somewhat caught in the quandary between our pride for the Emerald and opposing ideas, we eventually set our mind on upgrading the product so it can be welcomed by everyone.
In 2019, we revamped our brand image with the color combination of dark emerald and gold, which we believe best represent our philosophy and ideas that we inject into the brand. Green is the color of life, renewal and energy, while gold is the color of the precious metal that asserts extravagance, wisdom and power. Interestingly, in recent years, the younger generations of Chinese are associating green with the notion of forgiveness. Not only we want our customers to feel life in their music through our luxurious products, we want our products to forgive the ramifications due to the imperfections in recordings during the compression process, so we can start to learn to forgive all the imperfections in life after having such a perfect acoustic experience. The new Emerald MKII, wearing the outfit of our brand color, is set to be the epitome of our philosophy.
Material and technology wise, we upgraded the copper base of the Emerald MKII to a higher purity type of copper, and we mixed two new elements into the compound for a fascinating copper alloy. High purity silver tightly wraps around the copper core, and the entire material is then pulled into fine threads with our state-of-the-art technology, which is our forte. The end result is an amazingly soft and flexible cable body with further detailed high frequencies, more elasticity in bass, wider sound-stage and better overall clarity and transparency comparing to that of the original Emerald. Of course, the Emerald MKII uses our usual elastic-inert isolating sheath to minimize unwanted microphonics and to ensure softness for the comfort during use.
4-wire or 8-wire?
The 4-wire option has the advantages of being more economical and lighter in weight.
The 8-wire option has fuller sound, larger soundstage and punchier bass while still feels amazingly soft and easy to use.
All of our IEM cables have pre-bent earguides by default. There are no wires inside as the ear guide is shaped by ourheat shrink sleeve to eliminate the possibility of oxidation of the metallic memory wires. If you do not want any ear guide, please contact us.
The default length of our IEM cables is about 1.2 meters, while headphone cables are around 1.5 meters. If other lengths are needed, please contact us for alternative arrangements.
