A few spec details for clarification:-

- We are using an Isobaric/k dynamic driver. Which is two dynamic drivers sealed moving in tandem in the same direction (we purchased every unit available)

- TWFK BA drivers

- Filter less system

- Proprietary silver/gold internal wiring especially developed for the Ref. 1

- Smaller Shell

- MMCX connectors

- 26.8 Ohm

Wow I'm speechless. Getting this new IEM will probably prove to be even more exciting for me than the recent purchase of my AK240! I wonder if this new IEM will revolve around the Uber cable or some unique proprietary cable again.

AHHHH... I just received my Custom Roxane !!   I guess I need to save some more money again !  :D 

 

I was almost in the same boat as you, now it seems like I will reserve the cash for Ref.1.  I am really interested in this, more so than Hugo Chord. I am sure with Gavin's taste, this will be one hell of an IEM.

 

May seems like 10 years away now.. The wait begins here.. lol

Bluebear, sorry.... I do not own 1plus2 (I was always meaning to but got distracted by other new toys...). I was informed the target release date of this new iem is May this year. I think it is gonna be a killer iem. Originally, I thought I did not have to upgrade portable gear as I bought FitEar C435 and Hugo this year...

 

 

I think it's estimated to be released in May.

And I thought the oncoming release of the DX90, Calyx M, Fiio X5, HiFiMAN HE560, and HE400i all around the same time was a handful. But now this too? RIP WALLET :blink:

Wow! Ever since hearing the 1Plus2's I haven't found myself getting overly excited about new product announcements, but a new Tralucent IEM? Now that is exciting news indeed! Looking forward to reading more about them and hopefully getting to hear them as well.

Hybrid IEMs are definitely intriguing and interesting! Interested in the new Ref.1 for an upgrade to ASG2! smily_headphones1.gif

I'm not exactly sure of all the details yet. But he said he is going to save the "1Plus" naming-scheme for later iterations of IEMs that will be more closely related to the 1Plus2s sound signature. The Reference 1 is voiced quite differently from the 1Plus2 to my knowledge.

 

I think it's not really related to 1plus2 in terms of SQ according to lee730, so it is not exactly a new 1plus2. There will/may be other IEMs from Gavin that will replace 1plus2 when the time comes. The Ref. 1 will most likely be addressing a different kind of SQ to complement rather than replace 1plus2, but definitely exciting to hear it from a 2+2 Isobaric/k dynamic drivers. I just hope it is not too expensive. :wink_face:

Didn't you read the agreement before becoming an audiophile?

 

You simply don't hope things like that in this hobby :happy_face1:
