(News) KBEAR INK: Latest Single Dynamic Driver IEMs with New DLC Diaphragm





With years of experience in designing single driver premium Hi-Res IEMs, KBEAR has come up with a brand new pair, the KBEAR INK.


KBEar has got several famous single dynamic driver IEMs under its names like the KBEar Diamon, KBEar Believe, KBEar Aurora, and many more. In fact, KBEar inherited the cavity structure of the famous Believe and Diamond earphones in designing the shells for INK. INK houses a newly-developed 8.8mm dynamic driver that uses an optimized DLC(Diamond-Like Carbon) diaphragm.

KBEar INK adopts an 8.8mm dynamic driver unit. This Dynamic driver uses a newly developed diamond-like carbon(DLC) dome diaphragm. Compared to the last generation DLC diaphragm, this one has got a bigger size. With the help of a powerful magnetic circuit, the pair produces a powerful flux that helps the driver to produce a powerful sound with a deep bass response.
