iFi AUDIO iEMatch overview

  • 1Description

The iEMatch Micro Headphone Matcher from iFi-Audio is for removing hiss and improving dynamics in the audio when listening with headphones. The micro headphone-matcher can be used to reduce background noise, improve dynamic range, and increase the usable volume-control range with headphones or IEMs because they are either too loud, or there is excessive hiss from the music source.

Add the iEMatch in-between the headphones and the amplifier, set the controls to either high- or ultra-sensitivity, and sit back to enjoy the music. It is built tough using premium components and features 1/8" TRRS connections on both ends. Each gold-plated jack is fully balanced. A velvet pouch, a gold-plated airplane adapter, and memory foam contoured ear plugs (-37 dB) are also included.

High or Ultra Sensitivity
Dynamics, or more precisely the 'Dynamic Range' is the difference between maximum usable sound level and background noise level. Having very sensitive (very loud) headphones means both the self-noise of the source and the sound level is boosted. When the sound volume must be reduced to get comfortable listening levels, what remains is more noise and a reduced dynamic range
Balanced or Single-Ended for 3.5mm
The iEMatch uses 3.5mm TRRS connections on both ends and is fully-balanced, so it takes full advantage of the balanced wiring for any suitably equipped headphones
Precision Components
The iEMatch is packed with premium components from the 6063-TS aluminum-magnesium alloy through to the signal transfer cable, which is a 6N silver copper matrix. The whole is even better than the sum of these parts – it just makes for the most transparent, enjoyment of music
Ready for Travelling All Over the World
The iEMatch comes with a velvet pouch, a gold-plated airplane adapter, and memory-foam contoured ear plugs (-37 dB) for peace and quiet when travelling

    iFi AUDIO iEMatch reviews

    iEMatch Micro Headphone Matcher is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audiophile portability in an adapter Sacrificing very little, this adapter does everything as advertised. This item is a universal volume attenuator and resistance matcher. If you are on the go frequently and like to listen out of a variety of different devices, this adapter will become a necessity quickly. Small and clean looking form factor will easily complement the looks of many cables. It will stow away unnoticed in a backpack or pocket effortlessly. It has a nice premium metal heft to it which instills confidence in the build quality. Not too long, nor too short. This item was simply perfect for me at this price point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice addition The iEMATCH had a solid feel. As a hiss silencer does a great job. I had had no idea I had this problem. But after buying this item I do not get tired of listening. So well done. It also is supposed to improve dynamics. I can not be sure about that. I am writing this review too premature. But somehow brings the instruments forward. I am happy with it and use it every time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy gadget for overpowered headphone amps I'm using the iEMatch with a pair of TFZ Series 5 IEMs rated at 105 dB/mW. With the high setting I've gained a lot more volume range with the Schiit Magni 1, while the ultra sensitive setting gives me a similar level of flexibility with a 30W speaker amp cabled for headphone driving duties. I haven't noticed any perceptible sonic degradation with the iEMatch so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great as stated, high quality construction. I was a bit skeptical with a $50 adapter BUT the item works as stated and has removed the small hiss of my $10 Zagg earbuds that I use for work every day. Currently running it on a Dell laptop with FiiO K1 and it is working great! Based on previous research this should help the low impedence earbuds out there. Thank you to BH for providing this products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fantastic, removed noise. My overly sensitive IEMs had been picking up noise from my amp/dac combo while on the go, leading to a gentle hiss in the background most of the time. After pitting these in between the others the hiss was entirely removed. Small, lightweight and worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addition Just to add it was tested with Ultrasone 900 pro and Hifiman RE600s on Meizu 5 pro smartphone.
