Custom earphones from Jerry Harvey Audio in collaboration with Astell&Kern
The siren series in-ear monitors are named after famous rock songs about women.
Jerry Harvey Audio produced a special version of the Roxanne tuned for the Astell&Kern in 2014. The collaboration was so successful that the two companies will now release two more models.
The first new model is the Layla. This all new flagship model is nothing short of stunning visually as well as sonically. The second in the “Sirens Series” line, it is worthy of being named after possibly the most famous love song in Rock history. Recorded By Eric Clapton, with his band Derek and the Dominos and released in 1970 on Layla and other Love songs. Layla was inspired by Clapton's unrequited love for Pattie Boyd, the wife of his friend George Harrison.
Full carbon Fibre Body with “Burnt” titanium Bezel and Carbon Fibre logo Insert.
The Layla is the first earpiece I've designed to be a reference/mastering IEM. Most IEMs I design have a live rock and rock&roll tuning with a little more emphasis on the lows and low mids, accurate but warm. The Layla bass response when turned down is perfectly flat and when fully turned up has +13dB of boost at 60Hz.
The Layla also has the most sophisticated crossover network ever put into an IEM.
The shape of all crossover filters are all 4th order. This crossover circuit combined with the Freqphase waveguide and new proprietary quad drivers deliver an audio quality that will truly put you at the mix position in the recording studio whether it's hearing exactly what the mixer/producer and band wanted you to hear, mixing your own tracks or performing live.
The 1st reference/mastering IEM from Jerry Harvey Audio
All new proprietary Driver designs
This series of IEM’s were designed to be used as a Mastering reference tool because the high driver was designed for optimum top-end extension with minimal distortion. The mid driver is perfectly flat from 10Hz to 5kHz. Low driver designed for steeper low pass and with virtually no distortion.
SoundrIVe Technology (Quad Driver Technology)
Layla was equipped with soundrIVe Technology, using Jerry Harvey Audio’s proprietary mini quad drivers. Layla has a triple quad driver (12 drivers) configuration that offers the widest frequency range you’ll ever hear.
FreqPhase Technology / Stainless Steel Tube Waveguide
FreqPhase corrects Time and Phase of multiple Drivers. The Waveguide ensures each driver signal arrives within 0.01 milliseconds, resulting in a Phase coherent IEM.
Variable BASS output Adjustable Cable
User controlled low frequency drivers with the adjustable bass (0 to +13dB). Frequency ranges from flat bass response up to +13dB.
4-pin Cable Connection with Machined Aluminium Locking Collar
4-pin cable connection with Machined Aluminium Collar mechanism provides a more secure and strong connection with earpiece and will also help to protect it from sweat and dust.
Additional Balanced Cable for Astell&Kern
The AK240 / AK120 II & AK100 II players provide balanced outputs with their 2.5mm 4pole terminal. Layla is originally designed and tuned for the AK240 balanced output and provides a balanced cable specially made to connect to the AK240.
