cma Acoustune 1970Ti 1750Cu

cma audio adds a new brand to its portfolio by introducing Acoustune to the European market. This young but already legendary Japanese manufacture is known for its audiophile in-ear-monitors which are both visually stunning and offering a sound quality perfectly balancing a maximum resolution, transparency, homogeneity and fine dynamics making them a true insider´s tip within the audiophile community.

"We are delighted to bring these absolutely unique products to the European market," says Michael Zirkel, cma audio´s Head of Global Sales. "All Acoustune products deliver a level of sound quality and sonic drive we have never experienced with in-ear-monitors.”

The HS1750CU offers the main concept and ingredients of Acoustune's high-end product at modest expense: the earbud housing milled from aluminium is holding the driver´s chamber made from brass. The latter material is used together with an individual enclosure architecture plus a powerful 10-millimeter full-range diaphragm made from Acoustune´s exclusive Myrinx material to ensure a particularly rich and deep bass reproduction. This synthetic diaphragm material was developed to achieve the most natural tonal reproduction in a way similar to the transduction within the human eardrum.

With an impedance of 24 ohms and very high efficiency, the HS1750CU is a perfect choice for mobile applications on less powerful head amplifiers. For optimal fit, 9 adapters in various sizes and shapes are included. This high-end in-ear-monitor introduces two of Acoustune´s exclusive technologies: a driver´s enclosure entirely made from titanium, and a sandwich diaphragm composed of Myrinx plus a very thin layer of titanium.

The inner chamber, like the intricate outer housing, is milled in the manufactory with high-precision CNC milling machines. The 10-millimeter full-range driver in its titanium enclosure, yields maximum impulse accuracy, fine dynamics and incredibly precise timing, without sacrificing tonal balance or bass response. For optimal fit, 9 adapters are included, varying in size, choice of materials and design.

All Acoustune products are manufactured to the highest standards in the manufactory in Japan. The utmost precision is ensured by state-of-the-art machinery such as CNC mills, which produce each individual part with incredible accuracy. However, final assembly and quality control are always executed by experienced experts. A very unique way of designing products plus advanced mechanical construction in an uncompromising choice of materials are the base for creating masterpieces of unique craftmanship and beauty. In Japan, Acoustune's in-ear monitors are also known as the "audiophile´s diamonds".

To ensure the best fit for each individual ear and source, Acoustune is developing both individual adapters of various materials, as well as its own cables. To achieve maximum transparency, no compromise is allowed when it comes to choosing the materials for diaphragms and driver enclosures: titanium, beryllium and the exclusive one-of-a-kind material Myrinx are used in various combinations. The latter is a specific polymer derived from medical research that offers outstanding long-term stability. The name Myrinx refers to the human eardrum and illustrates the bionic approach when striving for the perfect diaphragm material.

In 2013, a group of experienced specialists from the Japanese headphone scene joined forces and created Acoustune. Their common goal: to produce an exquisite series of in-ear monitors that combine perfect sound quality, craftmanship and the finest choice of materials. Dynamic full-range drivers are preferred to ensure a maximum of dynamics and homogeneity. The company does a lot of research and development, invests in exclusive transducer technology, materials and tonal tuning. As a result, the products achieve a new level of detail, resolution, transparency and silkiness otherwise solely to multi-driver concepts with electrostatic tweeters.

Acoustune products will be available in Europe from September 2023 through retail and the website below. The price for the HS1750Cu will be 699,00 EUR and for HS1790Ti 1199,00 Euros.
