Earfun, a well-known brand for its budget-friendly audio solutions, has unveiled two new products, the EH100 wired in-ear monitors (IEMs) and the UA100 portable headphone amp and DAC, to mark its fifth anniversary. While the EH100 marks Earfun's foray into the wired audio domain, the UA100 complements it as a compact and versatile amplifier and DAC combo.
Priced at a modest $100, the EH100 IEMs offer a compelling proposition for audiophiles seeking high-resolution audio without breaking the bank. These earbuds boast a dual dynamic driver setup (10mm and 6.8mm) combined with a custom balanced armature driver to deliver a harmonious blend of frequencies.
Constructed from aluminum and featuring a standard two-pin IEM connection, the EH100 includes two sets of tuning nozzles, labeled as "balanced" and "ambient," allowing users to customize the sound signature according to their preferences.
With a frequency response spanning from 16Hz to 40KHz, 16-ohm impedance, and a sensitivity of 103dB at 1kHz, the EH100 promises a versatile and immersive audio experience. The inclusion of a replaceable 1.3m silver-plated copper cable further emphasizes Earfun's commitment to ensuring optimal signal transmission.
In tandem with the EH100, Earfun introduces the UA100—a portable headphone amp and DAC designed to enhance audio enjoyment on smartphones and music players. This USB-sized device, measuring 50 x 18 x 10mm, punches above its weight, supporting up to 32-bit/768kHz and native DSD512 hi-resolution files.
The UA100 features 3.5mm and balanced 4.4mm headphone jacks, providing a wide range of connectivity options. Notably, a unique feature of the UA100 is a mode button enabling users to switch between UAC 2.0 and UAC 1.0 standards for audio transfer, ensuring compatibility with various devices, including PCs and portable gaming consoles.
Despite its small size, the UA100 doesn't compromise on power, with independent left and right amps delivering up to 195mW at 32 ohms, boasting a 121dB signal-to-noise ratio. The inclusion of an LED indicator adds a practical touch, confirming the source's hi-res capabilities.
To mark the fifth anniversary celebration, Earfun is offering significant discounts until October 15th. During this period, the EH100 can be acquired for $70, and the UA100 for $56. For those looking to embrace both products, a bundle discount of 35% is available, bringing the combined cost to $117.
Post-October 15th, the EH100 will retail for $100, while the UA100 will be priced at $80. Early adopters can take advantage of this limited-time offer to acquire these audio gems at a fraction of their regular cost, making high-quality audio more accessible than ever.
