Anaheim, CA (January 21, 2010) Sensaphonics announced the introduction of its latest model, the 3MAX triple-driver custom earphone, at NAMM.
Claimed to be the first triple-driver earphone with soft-gel silicone earpieces, the new 3MAX also features a field-replaceable cable as standard. By combining a proprietary twin-driver bass system with a precision high frequency driver, the 3MAX aims to provide in-ear audio with higher SPL and more bass headroom than any previous model.
“We were the first manufacturer to extend low frequency response by adding a second speaker to a custom earphone,” notes Sensaphonics President and founder Michael Santucci. “To meet today’s demands on IEM earphone performance, we developed a triple-driver design that can deliver as much acoustic push as modern wireless systems can provide, while retaining the sound signature that has made our 2MAX and 2X-S models so successful.”
In finalizing the 3MAX design, a panel of monitor engineers and musicians participated in blind tests to select the best sound quality. “It’s not how many drivers you can fit into an earphone – it’s how accurate they sound,” states Dr. Santucci. “And with the 3MAX, we’ve achieved a new level of excellence. Our test panel confirms it.”
The Sensaphonics 3MAX custom earphone sells for $1,050 and is now available.
