As one of many of Astell & Kern’s recent collaborations with high-end headphone manufacturers, the recently released T8iE earbuds are a top-notch approach to portability that has several benefits. The earbuds integrate cutting-edge Tesla (named for Nikola, not the car) technology from Beyerdynamic, using an architecture that is tuned specifically for Astell & Kern mobile players. The earbuds are shipped with balanced cables as well as standard headphone cables for use with a wide variety of devices.

Handmade in Germany

The T8iE is the only earbud on the market to offer Tesla drivers, which, with a dynamic, moving coil transducer, generate at least one tesla unit of magnetic force with great precision and minimized distortion. For those who have yet to hear the Beyerdynamic sound, the sonic benefits are clearly audible. The sleek, rounded design makes for a comfortable fit that will not fatigue the user after hours of listening.
