“The HY3 is a three-way, three-driver hybrid custom in-ear monitor from Sweden-based Cosmic Ears. It utilizes a dynamic driver for the bass and twin balanced armature drivers for the midrange and treble, which used to be a very rare configuration, although hybrids have increased in popularity over the past year.

“ I had owned the UE-10's before this for about 3 years. So upgrading to these was a huge improvement in my opinion. Very nice full sound, with improved frequency response from 20 Hz to 18,000 Hz. Bass is much more present on these but not too overly stated. Gorgeous build quality.

“ To start, I purchased these for two reasons. I am a live audio engineer, so I use these for mixing monitors and as my personal monitors when I sing Tenor as part of my group.

The 3-way Reference is positioned in the middle of the range and offered in both fixed-cable and detachable cable variants, priced at €575 (est. $740) and €645 (est. $830), respectively. What makes the 3-way interesting aside from the shell material is the sound - after several months with the earphone I can say with great confidence that its tuning makes for one of most unique...
“EarSonics is a french CIEMs and IEMs manufacturer that is based in the south of France, near from Montpellier. All the prices are also in €uros. The EM4 are based on Franck Lopez thoughts after the EM3pro. They gain in width, clarity, separation and precision. But they are not made for guigs, you can use it for but it's not especially done for. I would advice to take the EM6 for....” --Rollk2
