New earphones follow the success of award-winning Massdrop x NuForce EDC IEMs

FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Optoma NuForce, a world-leading manufacturer of audio products, today announced that the new Massdrop x NuForce EDC3 IEM (In-Ear Monitors), created from the company's collaboration with Massdrop, is now available for purchase. On the heels of the success of the award-winning Massdrop x NuForce EDC IEM, which won The Absolute Sound's "Product of the Year 2017" award in the earphone/IEM category, the new IEM has been designed for discerning yet price-conscious audiophiles.

Made with direction from Massdrop's audiophile enthusiast community, the EDC3 IEM combines key high-end audio elements and attributes to create a standout product that meets their highly-refined needs. Featuring three balanced armature drivers for true audiophile performance, the IEM is available for just $99 – one-third the price of competitive products.

Features include:

  • Premium sound: The Massdrop x NuForce EDC3 IEM meets the needs of Massdrop's discerning audiophile community, with three balanced armature drivers for spacious, crystal-clear and resolving sound.
  • Handpicked drivers: The three balanced armature drivers used in the EDC3 are handpicked and measured to match the target frequency response.
  • Premium quality control: Similar to any valuable high-end earphones and speakers, the EDC3 left and right earpieces are measured to match each other within +/- 2 dB.
  • Proprietary crossover design: As any other NuForce multi-driver in-ear monitor, the EDC3 utilizes an advanced proprietary crossover design that allows the drivers to provide seamless and smooth frequency transition from one driver to another.
  • Replaceable cables: Each EDC3 comes with two cables: a braided cable for superior audio and a microphone cable for convenience when listening on-the-go.
  • Lexan earpieces: The EDC3 earpieces are acoustically calculated to provide the best sound quality with the most comfortable fit and superior noise isolation.

"Our goal at Optoma has always been to create incredible high-end audio products that are accessibly priced," said Jyri Jokirinta, senior manager of NuForce audio at Optoma Technology. "Following our mutual success with the award-winning Massdrop x NuForce EDC IEM, which continues to be highly rated, we're thrilled to bring an even more fully refined product to the Massdrop community, marrying incredible sound, design, and features at an unbelievable price."

"Following the success of the Massdrop x NuForce EDC IEM that we released this past June, we're excited to collaborate again with NuForce to introduce the second Massdrop x NuForce model," said Christian Tanimoto, audiophile custom product manager at Massdrop. "We believe the EDC3 will be another great addition to our custom product lineup, delivering the best IEM sound quality to our community for under $100."
