Triple-Driver IEMs With a Neutral Sound
Following the success of the Massdrop x NuForce EDC, named The Absolute Sound's 2017 Earphone of the Year, we're excited to announce its big brother: the EDC3. This new IEM swaps the original's single dynamic driver for three balanced armatures per ear, and the lightweight housing is entirely translucent to showcase the drivers within. The tuning is different, too: While the EDC has a fun sound with a bit of extra bass, the EDC3 is more neutral and less warm—but still retains its musicality. The two complement one another well for those who like to have a pair of IEMs (one neutral, one fun) to cover all the bases. On its own, the EDC3 makes a great everyday all-rounder, complete with two cables, five sets of ear tips, and a carrying case.
Note: This drop is limited to 960 units. Shipping is free to US members and subsidized internationally. Each member can purchase up to ten (10) EDC3.
2 Removable Cables for Everyday Use
The EDC3 IEMs are ready to go everywhere with you. Wear them at home, in the office, at the gym, or while traveling or commuting. You'll get two removable cables: a braided cable for top-notch performance and a second cable with an inline remote and microphone. For a comfortable fit, both cables use a shrink-wrapped over-ear guide with a thin profile (especially convenient for users who wear glasses) and a two-pin connector that won't rotate as you move. Along with allowing you to switch between these two cables, the removable cable capability has other benefits. You'll have the flexibility to swap in different cables to support different devices, and if your cable ever breaks, you can simply get a new one instead of replacing the entire IEM.
