Beautiful Successor to the Revolutionary A8
George Cardas won a huge amount of critical acclaim for his revolutionary A8 Ear Speakers. Featuring an all new design, the Cardas Audio A8 Ear Speaker 30th Anniversary Edition improves upon the heralded performance of its predecessor. This A8 boasts a 10.85mm Ultra Linear, Contour Field, Dual Magnet Driver, producing brilliant highs and deep bass. But most importantly, the A8 sounds profoundly musical, which is exactly what you would expect from any product that bears the Cardas name.
Reviewing the original model A8 at innerfidelity.com, Tyll Hertsens says, "The new A8 is damned good sounding. Tonal balance is neutral, dynamics are terrific, treble is resolving without being tiresome – this is a great example of how a single dynamic driver IEM can deliver outstanding performance. Yes, your awesome sauce is showing, George."
New Black Chrome BodyThe new black chrome body incorporates a Golden Spiral curve, as with the original A8 as well as George's trailblazing EM5813 Ear Speaker. The unique shape of the body is key to the sonic neutrality, since it follows the same curve found in the human cochlea, which is a spiral-shaped cavity in the bony labyrinth of the inner ear.
Specially Designed Cable
Even the A8 cable is special. The lightweight, flexible cable has separate conductors for each channel and unlike the previous model A8 is now a continuous solid run from source to speaker. The tangle-resistant cable features a unique spiral design in which the conductors wrap around a central fiber core, so that they are never physically stressed, even if the cable gets pulled. And it features multi-stranded 99.99% pure Litz copper conductors.
