If you ever ask us about our favorite set of IEMs both in terms of looks and sound, we know we will name some of Kinera IEM’s as our favorites.

 

But today, we personally feel that Kinera has outdone itself. They have announced their latest set of tremendously beautiful in-ear monitors, meet the all-new Kinera Skuld. While their entire lineup is filled with beautiful IEM sets such as Nanna 2.0, Baldr, Freya, Norn, and many more, the design and look of Skuld is something we have personally never seen before. Kinera has been designing all their IEMs taking inspiration from the characters of Norse Mythology. The latest Skuld here is no different. According to Norse Mythology, Skuld is the youngest of the three goddesses of fate we know as Norn.

Story Background of Kinera Skuld

As other IEMs in the Kinera’s lineup, Skuld also has its design inspiration roots deep into Norse Mythology. Skuld according to the Norse Myths, is the youngest among the three sisters of fate we all know as Norn. She is also known as the Goddess of the future. This realm of the future is reflected in the ear cavities by its futuristic color theme and design.

Beautiful Hand-Painted Ear Cavities

Kinera Skuld similar to other IEMs in their lineup has premium hand-painted designer ear cavities. The lead designer has adopted black as the main base color with blue and green changing polarising effect as the main design elements on the cavities. They have lustrous gold foils with glittery silver optical particles to provide shine to the elements on the cavities. It is in our opinion one of the best looking IEMs not only in Kinera’s lineup but also in the industry worldwide.
