Astell&Kern Zero 1

Ear tempters

Hi-end portable audio expert Astell&Kern has launched its latest in-ear monitor, the AK Zero 1.

Features three different drivers comprised of a micro planar dynamic driver, dual balanced armature (BA) drivers and a dynamic driver, these mini monitors come housed in CNC-machined metal housing with looks to match their inner hardware.

Even their cable is high spec, thanks to the use of  hifi-grade (or should that be Audiograde) pure silver-coated oxygen free cable.

AK ZERO1 headphones

The AK ZERO1 headphones can be specified in a range of colours from ‘Diana’ to ‘Billie Jean’  for added bling

The AK Zero 1 is priced £649 per pair, with an optional upgrade PEP11 cable that sports larger aluminium 4.4mm jack plugs. Find out more on Astell&Kern’s website.
