In Ear Headphones - Cyrus Audio

In ear monitors (IEMs) or "earphones" are obviously a more discreet and portable solution to full-sized headphones and earphones of some variety are often now included with portable players, phones, etc. However, these bundled models are often cheaper types not designed to deliver excellent sound quality. You can enjoy far better sound quality by swapping them for a set of these branded earphones. Many of these models also include in-line remotes for taking calls on your phone and controlling volume.

Ear canal style headphones offer various advantages over standard in ear models and ear buds. The seal formed by the rubber or silicone earphone tips offers excellent isolation and passive noise attenuation, blocking out a large amount of environmental sound as well as keeping your sound in. This makes them ideal for use on the go, when commuting, at the gym etc., much more so than variants of full sized headphones due to their portable nature and the fact that they can stow away easily in a pocket. Most of these types of in ear headphones include a variety of ear buds and tips, in different shapes and sizes, allowing you to customise the fit and ensure that the best seal is made, and that the fit is just right.

Cyrus Audio design, manufacture and support their products from a UK base which is rare in today’s trans-national manufacturing environment. But, it is a testament to Cyrus Audio’s commitment to superior audio performance standards, which means they maintain standards you expect from Cyrus

Cyrus Audio's philosophy of separating what can be separated greatly assists in isolation from noisy power supplies and ultimate overall sound quality. Therefore, their range features DAC’s and CD transports rather than single-box CD players and their pre and power amplifier solutions tend to be more popular than the one-box integrated amplifier models available.

A further advantage of Cyrus ownership is that there are numerous upgrade paths to elevate the performance of your existing Cyrus separates to higher model specification without you needing to replace the whole unit, as is usually the case with other brands (with upgrades available for all models apart from the flagship models - although even in these cases they may be serviced to optimise performance).

To arrange an upgrade for your existing Cyrus hi-fi separates, please view the pricelist (link above) and call or e-mail us to make the necessary arrangements (you will need to ship the models back to us - ideally in their original packaging - and we will arrange the upgrades with Cyrus and return the units back to you).

Another great advantage of ear canal headphones is that they fit much more snugly than other designs, and will stay in the ear. It can be irritating to have to continuously readjust your earphones or put them back in your ear when they have fallen out. Ear canal style in ear headphones, if you achieve a snug fit, will stay in your ears through even the most rigorous activity, which is why they are favoured for use when exercising, on the move or at the gym.

Upgrading your in ear headphones can offer a range of benefits which will add extra enjoyment to your music, and turn your portable music device into a better sounding, more “hi-fi” source. Every aspect of sound can be improved by upgrading your headphones – bass performance can be richer and more vibrant, soundstage and imaging improved, while mid and high frequencies are more dynamic and lifelike. The headphones which come free with devices are often of an ear bud style, which sits in the ear. As mentioned, greater isolation, bass and fit can be achieved with earphones which fit directly into the ear canal.

Another reason why many users choose to upgrade their in ear headphones is simply build quality. Many of us use our portable devices and headphones on a daily basis, folding or scrunching them up and stuffing them in a pocket until they are removed again for the train journey home. This can put considerable strain on the cable, connectors and ear pieces; a strain which requires a solid and rugged build quality to endure. Most, if not all, of our in ear headphones are solidly built for longevity by reputable manufacturers who offer warranties to cover their products against damage, giving you peace of mind, and allowing you to use your headphones in the way you want.
