Sensaphonics introduces its latest model, the 3MAX triple-driver custom earphone with the long wearing comfort of 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 promises exceptionally accurate 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.”
Because the 3MAX attains significantly higher levels than previous Sensaphonics designs, Santucci cautions, “As an audiologist, I actively encourage musicians to listen at safe levels. We strongly urge 3MAX customers to also consider our dB Check in-ear sound analyzer.” The dB Check is an in-line metering device that allows users to see their in-ear levels in real time, and displays how long they can safely listen at that volume.
The Sensaphonics 3MAX custom earphone sells for $1,050 and is now available. Sensaphonics Hearing Conservation, Inc. For more information, visit www.sensaphonics.com.
