KiiBOOM Allure: Challenging Single Driver IEMs

Rising IEM brand KiiBOOM has released the KiiBOOM Allure, a single-driver IEM.

A Single Driver with the Sound of Twenty

The Allure was designed with a minimalistic approach towards maximizing the full potential of a single driver in-ear monitor. Dynamic drivers are the traditional hallmark driver types in the audio industry, and continue to be the staple behind the world’s most renowned speakers and headphones. While balanced armature drivers provide easy workability in an earphone setting due to their small size, they cannot compare to the sheer power, tonal coherency, and acoustic timbre a full-sized dynamic driver can provide. To obtain the best sound a single dynamic driver can provide, we at KiiBOOM have engineered the perfect driver and acoustic housing to bring your music to life.

Technical Details

  • Driver Information: Single Beryllium Plated Diaphragm Dynamic Driver
  • Impedance: 18ohm
  • Sensitivity: 112db
  • Cable Connector: 0.78mm 2PIN
  • Frequency Response: 20-40kHz



The diaphragm membrane of a dynamic driver is the central component that determines the quality of the sound. Because sound waves move across the membrane as vibrations, the harder the tensile strength of the diaphragm, the faster the sound can reverberate. For this reason, we have used one of the world’s strongest yet lightest metals - beryllium - as our membrane. Beryllium has an incredible tensile strength and when used as a diaphragm material, can provide impactful bass response and audio resolution unlike any other drivers.

We utilized a diamond-like carbon (DLC) polymer diaphragm which has already been engineered to produce tonal balance, and plated three separate layers of beryllium to harden and strengthen the membrane. This creates a diaphragm which is ultra responsive due to its increased surface tension. You will immediately notice the enhanced audio resolution that truly defines Hi-Fi and is nothing like heard from any other earphones. The more responsive membrane also makes for harder hitting bass impact and crystal clear treble details. The technology behind the Allure is the single driver solution to mobile high-fidelity audio.

There were 4 separate steps involved in carefully engineering the sound behind the Allure. The first step involved engineering the dynamic driver components themselves, including the magnets, diaphragm, and internal cavity structures, to achieve the perfect sonic qualities. Software-based tuning was then utilized to adjust the frequency and impedance measurements to precisely control tonal balance across the entire frequency range. The acoustic cavity of the housing material was also generated using our proprietary software algorithm and CNC’d in a precise manner to avoid any parallel surfaces.

This eliminates harmonic cancellation of soundwaves and also helps bring about a wider perceived soundstage in the music. Finally, we selected the exact acoustic dampening material to finetune the upper treble frequencies to bring about detailed, yet comfortably natural highs and a sense of air with each note. The resulting sound of the Allure can only be described as tonally accurate like a studio monitor, yet still lush and enjoyable for the day-to-day music lover.
