Letshuouer Reveals Its Premium Cadenza 12 Flagship IEMs
Letshuouer has been producing high-quality in-ear monitors (IEMs) since 2016 and now the brand has announced a new flagship IEM, the Cadenza 12. Disclosed in a press release, the company says the Cadenza 12 IEMs have been designed from the ground up by an in-house team of audio engineers.
The Cadenza 12 IEMs feature a unique configuration of 12 drivers comprising both dynamic and balanced armature units. The dynamic driver is a 10mm LCS Kevlar dome unit that works alongside 11 high-performance balanced armature drivers from Knowles and Sonion.
The drivers are arranged precisely, and the signal is fed through a six-way crossover unit. This final driver combination and its corresponding crossover were decided on after exhaustive testing, which Letshuouer claims delivers a rich, detailed and musical presentation.
The earpiece housings of the Cadenza 12 feature an ergonomic design made from a titanium alloy. The housing shape was arrived at from many prototypes to ensure the final version would provide as comfortable a fit as possible. The titanium alloy is strong with a low density, resulting in the Cadenza 12 being lightweight and having a low chassis resonance. The company claims the low resonance ensures a much cleaner sound profile.
The Cadenza 12 include detachable cables made from a high-purity hybrid design comprising 204 strands of 6N monocrystalline copper/silver in a hybrid-weave construction. The company’s audio engineers chose this combination of metals to maintain signal integrity thanks to an extremely low impedance. The user of the IEMs can choose between a range of cable terminations, including 2.5mm (balanced), 3.5mm (single-ended), plus Pentaconn 4.4mm (balanced).
Pricing & Availability: The Letshuoer Cadenza 12 will be available from March 2023 and will sell for $1,899 / £2,199.
