AAW Halcyon CIEM
***Expected wait time of around 12 weeks
Advanced AcousticWerkes (AAW) hit the sweet spot in technology, value and performance with Halcyon. With four electrostatic drivers propelling this tri-brid into the future, this is AAW's statement of intent for its ambitions the next decade.
Still it's not yet all future-fi with Halcyon hitting the right notes with its use of current technologies to date. AAW's use of airflow porting for its 10mm bass graphene dynamic driver will have people asking why they hadn't thought of that before, as newfound value is derived from today's key components.
Headfonia were impressed by what they heard, hailing it for being "about the pure enjoyment of your music", while Headfonics praise its "presentation of possibilities" and are intrigued by what "AAW can do with the second gen [electrostat] transformer solution".
