On 29th February 2016, we launched 1,000 of our SE1 earphones at a pay-what-you-want price with all proceeds going to Youth Music. This national charity invest in music-making projects for young people experiencing challenging circumstances including poverty, disability and mental health issues.

The SE1s offer an extremely smooth and extended treble performance compared to other in-ear headphones. This brings an openness and delicacy in the high frequencies that is rarely experienced with this type of headphone creating a truly pleasing performance for your music.
The key to this smooth sound is the use of Beryllium in the diaphragms of the 8mm speaker drivers we have developed. Beryllium is extremely light, lighter than Aluminium, but very stiff, stiffer than titanium. This means that it can react quickly to small high frequency signals and reproduce them with remarkable accuracy due to the rigid diaphragm.
Beryllium is also very well damped – if you made a bell from Beryllium metal, it wouldn’t ring – so distortion is extremely low giving a silky smooth and clean treble.
To avoid colouring the pure sound of the SE1s, the housing for the drivers is machined from aircraft grade Aluminium. High purity oxygen-free copper can be found in the connecting wires too. All in all, the SE1s bring you closer to the musical emotion of your favourite tracks.
