“ For larger views of any of the photos (1200 x 800) - please click on the individual images INTRODUCTION My introduction to Alclair was back in March this year, when I won 2nd prize in a competition hosted by iFi Audio, in association with Alclair, Music Direct and Native DSD Music.

The RSM custom in ear monitor is a four-driver, three-way design with 2 woofers, 1 mid-range, and 1 tweeter. It has the power and presence to handle any stage, and the clarity and detail to enjoy while on the bus, plane or easy chair.

“ What can I say about these? I saw a lot of people going for the Awei branded items on eBay, so I got one myself. They were surprisingly good and surprisingly bad at the same time. I will explain. Pros Housing build - For $2, an aluminum housing is quite exceptional. Accessories - While the Awei K80 only comes with one pair of tips, they are surprisingly pretty high quality.
