arbud Stereo Headphones CLEF-MA
to realize contour presence and clear sound even in noisy environment by designing high sound pressure, MA newly developed (magnetic armature)
Earbud Stereo Headphones CLEF-MA equipped with a driver (TH-ECMA600BK ) 【Product Features】achieve outstanding sound expressive power even in noisy is the armature driver of one pole type, with a (magnetic armature) driver MA new development. Is created by the diaphragm and magnet high magnetic force (an alloy of iron and nickel) permalloy, the sound of high sound pressure sensitivity, claims the presence and contour of the sound was clear even in noisy environments. High durability against external shock for one simple structure achieves superior impact resistance magnet. Also, in order to contribute to the power-saving, reducing the battery consumption of music player. Year mechanism with movable holder with adjustable position, the movable holder mechanism by 15 ° up and down year in accordance with the shape of the ear.

The following are some reviews from Amazon.jp - the English are a bit all over the place, thanks to Google translate
(Second break) and go to the festival to find a headphone headphones Next, I got to this code of headphone headphone that has been a long favorite cut off abruptly. [Point of purchase] 1, initially wanted a BA type headphones, but went around to watch, shock-sensitive feature is a weakness of BA, the thing wildly treat yourself without feeling like there is in the booth, also taught me regret giving up that high threshold. This headphone strong impact driver has a structure that is similar to the BA, however. (Who says docent) two strong break the code because it woven in silver alloy. Third break will be avoided. 3, the design is interesting. (And have high casually, I think ... and possible appeal) 4, was a favorite sound. J POP comparedーis the center of the view, and a dynamic vocal voice or BA, hear more clearly and distinctly (mind you). On the other hand, when compared with dynamic or even double or dual driver BA, bass and treble, but felt weak, or is free from classical or jazz, I do not need to get there. Compared to the dynamic type of the same price range and single BA, has been able to reproduce delicate. I thought it was 5, the cost performance is excellent, and about 10 000 yen to. [TIP] when commuting on the train ※, I have been listening to the conversation of N ● K, I feel that the teacher's voice can be heard clearly than before I will. ※ squeak feel of the cable is slightly larger but, be careful if the maneuverability, it is the level which does not care. You want to have headphones so fine, as a step UP from the headphones in their 2,000 yen, more than 10 000 for persons ... are, I think a little advice on headphones.
Earphone is using a new type of driver that magnetic armature.
The sound quality was impressive just like the middle of what is called a dynamic and balanced armature.
I thought that at first as it's opposite the bus and train sound that is heard even in noisy properly sell, you may wish to stop so many unexpected leak sound so good I am. Coating of the code that are easy to handle in the fabric, such as a practical mechanism holder ear, maneuverability is pretty good, but I stand out a little color. I do not think is a bad thing ...... cheaper earphones good? Little more. I want to add one more thing about ☆ If around 5,000 yen.
I think I bought it because it was a strange type earphone, sound and what do you. Balance as a whole is comparatively flat. Bass is pretty tight in stiff. Is massive enough, but I also think a solution to fewer little. There is a distinctive overhang at mid-high range. Band sound is not audible though. Here is a little strange. It does not get mad sounds. Although I know or hear the sound of the hi-hat, but it does not seem out of the ultra-high frequency over 12,3 kHz. I will not respond to the equalizer. Not suitable for people to focus on exit. It is a little narrowband. Unique tone of mid-high range is great, especially from mid-range vocal is unique. There is not harsh but there is tension in the region, and unusual clarity. I mean ... not like a magic knife Sasara is not a sound but a so-called Hi-Fi, it is a pleasant sound overall. Even for those who have a high level machine, you will be able to recommend one to try. I thought the sound before you buy and I wonder which is similar to the type BA, since it is not even similar to type D type BA is the feeling you listen, you can be the proper use. It is good in its own way sound insulation, sound leakage is pretty awful. I do not know from where you are leaking, I will not change the volume with your finger blocking the earpiece. Although I sound becomes extremely small and usually blocked. People use in public places may be suspect. I thought of going lower ★ one, so I leave it as is. I lowered one too ★ PS. As can be seen in the song also blocked until the earpiece at the volume you are a casual ear where no noise, it is difficult to use even by train at the library. I do not think there is no earphone is not only used in the workplace (one cabin) or a house, there is still difficulty in practicality.
