iBasso IT04 IEM, 4 Drivers. Enjoy the Music! Release: July 2, 2018

    [​IMG] With our soon to be released IT04 your listening experience will take another step. Our IT04 uses 3 balanced armatures from the highest grade that Knowles produces and our own in house designed graphene dynamic driver. The BAs consist of a tweeter, mid tweeter and mid range BA. The dynamic driver has a seamless integration with the balanced armatures.

    We feel the IT04 reaches out beyond the common in head listening experience of IEMs and creates a large open and solid sound stage.

    The cable is our CB12. This is a balanced 2.5 TRRS terminated cable of silver and copper. Included is our own adapter to take the CB12 to single ended. A solid carrying case and a number of tips are included. It is all for the music.

    Frequency response: 5Hz-40kHz
    Impedance: 16 Ohm
    Noise attenuation: -30dB
    Rated power: 10mW
    T.H.D:<1% THD(at 1kHz /1mW)
    Plug size: 2.5mm (supplied stock cable) adapter to 3.5 TRS included
    Cable length: 1.2 m
    Weight: 13g (without cable)

    Price: 499 USD

    Hope they are less v-shaped and sibilant than the IT03. Fit and comfort was great.

    I have a pair here that I got to keep from the NYC CanJam show. They are a little different from the IT03 on a couple angles, but basically have the same type of shape. No one that used them at the table had a problem with fit.

    As to the sound, I listened to IEM's from $1200 to $3600 and the IT04 were the best I heard. I think by Paul saying un IEM he is referring to the openness. These sound more like an excellent headphone. I had a lot of out of the head sound. From my CIEM's to anything else I have they are the most open. They also have a bass slam that is natural but crazy good. The frequencies from low to high are smooth but with a natural bite to the sound. I have heard nothing else that compares.

    Better than U18t or the new EE flagships? Hmm I'm a bit skeptical on that..

    You have every right to be. I would have been also.

    Been reading so many hyperbole about the IT04, but then again the IT01 blows everything around 100$ out of the water, so I'm willing to believe.

    I'll probably get these. Should be interesting, and another active thread. I think the T01 was the gateway pill. Now we are hooked. Bummer :D

    Ohh man you just make me crazy to have these babies in my hands ,
    Please tell something about the mids/vocals quality and the position of vocals in presentation , it is forward or recessed ,??? thanks ,

    They may be slightly forward but really it depends upon the recording. The voice projects very well and yet you still have space. You hear the texture, the body of the voice. It is really a nice experience. This is for male and female voice. I find that a lot of even very, very expensive IEM's can get the female voice wrong, it sounds dry often, but not with the IT04. To me, you get the entire experience of the recording and the better the recording or a binaural recording, the better the sound but even on some standard recordings, the sound is pulled out very well. I have been using the CB13 quite a bit. I understand that they come with the CB12 and that will be excellent as well.

    Good way to put it. lol

    Paul, will there be a tour for audition? I am currently considering ordering 64 Audio's tia. If this is really good, I may order IT04 instead. My IT03 does not meet my taste, it has been sitting in my drawer for half year.:confounded:
