The difference between building a luxury watch and a precision IEM isn't that great, certainly not when Madoo's Type 711 planar-magnetic and balanced armature hybrid is the topic of discussion. HiBy Music's Class A discrete R5II surfaces as the source that will drive it to aplomb. Demands of managing airflow from the large radiating surfaces of three planar magnetic drivers necessitated extreme attention to detail in this Type 711 hand-made in Japan. Madoo shows off the fruits of such labour, with a sound signature that bristles with vibrancy and the zeal of potent, large scale, macro-dynamics. Low-end presence and female vocals get abundantly lavished by Type 711. The authority of planar-magnetic bass surfaces cleanly here, the naturally low distortion of such a driver topology exploited to maximum potential. [See Product Desc. For More] Type 711 encloses everything in a sealed stainless-steel cavity shaped by a CNC process – with a sapphire crystal glass top viewing port not only for the aesthetic pleasure of seeing your asset's high-tech internals, but for controlling sound wave reflections and resonances within. All that makes for a rigid, damped enclosure that marries the convenience and practicality of a closed-back planar IEM, with the fidelity and soundstage of an open one. Two balanced armatures from Summba offer something different to the Knowles and Sonion crowd, joining the fray in reproducing delicate top-end detail, stage and air. But the stars of Madoo's show ultimately remains its three planar-magnetic drivers. High quality capacitors make up a crossover that keeps each unit working in its optimal, comfortable, frequency range with ideal phase response. And a 3D-printed acoustic enclosure naturally blends the output of all for maximum cohesion and time-alignment, before arriving at your ear. The dimensions of Type 711's shell was a result of the averaging of 300 Asian mens' ear cavities, allowing the bores to sit for insertion at an angle and fit that particularly maximises the perception of soundstage depth. Clearly, every consideration has already been made, to manage the drivers and operate in sealed enclosure volumes, to bring one of IEMs' most challenging driver topologies effectively to market. Included 3.5mm and 4.4mm silver-plated copper cables enhance source compatibility. Reap everything a novel new flagship has to offer by feeding Madoo the high quality signal of iBasso Audio's AMP8 MKII for DX240, or Cayin Audio's N3Pro and N6II/E01.
