Update – Aero Digital Earphone campaign is now live at Indiegogo (http://igg.me/at/adigitalearphone). Get yours now!!!
Zorloo the company behind ZuperDAC USB DAC that I love is going to come out another in-ear earphones soon. Yup, it is Aero Digital Earphone (their 2nd generation). Unlike normal earphones, it has DAC and amp built-in. Yes, Aero is using the best-of-the-class HiFi ESS Sabre9018 audio DAC to deliver every fine detail with crystal clear sound. The audio output is fed to the custom made 14.8mm driver which not only reproduces the music in a faithful manner but is also itself capable of being replaced for personal taste, thanks to the modular architecture of the earphone driver design.
HearSwap – Aero earphone drivers are detachable to enable easy swap with other driver modules for different experiences. There are 3 different driver modules available, namely ‘Acoustic’, ‘Euphoric’ and ‘Nostalgic’. ‘Acoustic’ driver module is tuned for a linear response while ‘Euphoric’ for a stronger bass and ‘Nostalgic’ a warm sound signature, to suit individual preference.
Zorloo will launch the ‘Aero Digital Earphone’ campaign at Indiegogo (http://igg.me/at/adigitalearphone) on March 1, 2016. There are 3 different versions to support the latest digital interface standards: Apple Lightning, Android Micro-USB and Android USB-C. All Aero digital earphones come with the ‘Acoustic’ driver module. The ‘Euphoric’ and ‘Nostalgic’ driver modules are sold separately. The suggested retail price for Aero is USD119 and it will be offered at a special USD69 perk for the early bird backers at the Indiegogo campaign.
P/S – I tested the prototype version and it sounds great. Be sure to check it out on March 1, 2016 to enjoy the early bird discount.
