Quarkie Audio has just released their line of artistic designed in-ear headphones. The Quarkie headphone is the result of the collective team efforts of innovative and imaginative British and Asian-Pacific artists, music lovers and electronic engineers.
As music lovers, the group’s goal was to bring British studio monitor quality sound to an in-ear headphone range whilst keeping in line with their philosophy that high-performance technology products can be unique, beautiful and functional.
There are seven different artistic designs that have been launched. The funky designs include: yellow viper snakeheads, green viper snakeheads, snake eyes, cat eyes, chameleon eyes, purple gemstones and rusty bolts.
Utilizing specially developed 13.5 mm drive units with aluminum voice coil and neodymium magnets, the Quarkie Audio in-ear headphones are claimed to have low distortion, wide-bandwidth and excellent transient response. High sensitivity allows the Quarkie in-ear headphones to reach their potential with even portable music players.
Each pair of headphones is packaged with four sets of high quality ear buds (XS, S, M and L), instructions on how to fit the buds in correctly for maximum noise isolation, a microphone / function controller compatible with iPhones and Android phones and a sharing splitter. The gold plated 3.5mm plug and cloth covered cables minimize tangling and micro phonics.
After you get your hands on these phenomenal designs, don’t worry, there is more to come. Quarkie are currently working on a second collection of supersonic audio art which will be available at the end of the year.
