Simple. Instant. Improved.

As with our previous iEMatch devices, just add between your headphones/IEMs and the output of your smartphone, DAP (digital audio player) or music source to simply and instantly improve playback.  

  • Regains 24/16 Bit audio resolution
  • 12/24dB noise reduction
  • 0% frequency loss

Change the desired volume level ‘on-the-go’ to ensure a safe, comfortable listening whilst enjoying lower background noise and maximum dynamics.

Sensitive solution

The iEMatch4.4 gives you two sensitivity settings:

  • High – for high sensitivity headphones (reduces gain by 12dB)
  • Ultra – for ultra sensitivity headphones (reduces gain by 24dB)

We suggest trying both to see which listening level works best with your headphones and your listening preferences.

Clever custom cable

The minZ™ cable construction is a custom helix design. It is minimised in both capacitance and inductance.

This helix design also provides intrinsic shielding and protects the cable from RFI and EMI noise to ensure the cleanest possible transfer medium.

EMI & RFI

EMI is a type of interference caused by errant and unwanted electromagnetic waves that are received and amplified by an audio system.

Radio-frequency interference (RFI) is very similar to EMI but is found in the radio frequency spectrum. They are both sources of irritating, unwanted noise often talked about as ‘audio gremlins’.

Top tip: just don’t add water.

 

This is not artificial but real knowledge. By understanding fully how LPs are cut and replayed,  it is possible to filter record warp strongly without at the same time attenuating low bass or adding group delay.

Do you know that you normally lose at least 2Bits of resolution when listening to your favourite tracks at normal listening levels?

This is because you can’t listen at full volume. Well, you can but you run the risk of damaging your hearing.

Using the iEMatch enables you to turn up the digital volume and get those 2Bits back safely.
