Developed through collaboration with Jerry Harvey Audio, the black Astell&Kern Michelle is the fifth universal in-ear monitor headphone in the Siren Series—it utilizes the same technology as the Angie and Rosie, but at a more affordable price. Michelle allows you to hear the music how the recording artist and mix engineer intended it to sound, and it is well suited for use with audio devices such as mobile players, smartphones, tablets, and more.

Featuring three (low, mid, and high) custom-made, balanced-armature drivers per side, Michelle offers a frequency response of 20 Hz to 17 kHz. The patented Freqphase technology aligns each driver's output to be within 1/100 of a ms of each other; this ensures the correct time alignment and phase of all drivers, and results in highly accurate music reproduction. The shells of the earphones are 3D-printed, which provides an ergonomic fit and angles the nozzle in the ear canal for comfort and a proper acoustic seal.

A newly developed silver tinsel cable is made from copper, plated with silver, and wrapped with Kevlar for high strength and flexibility. Once inserted, Michelle offers a noise isolation of -26 dB, which helps keep the ambient sounds of your surroundings to a minimum. There are two cables included; one 3.5mm unbalanced and one 2.5mm balanced. Three sets of silicone eartips, a cleaning brush, and carry case are also included.

The Siren Series
  • Jerry Harvey Audio has developed the balanced-armature driver (BA) to offer reference-quality IEMs for mastering and mixing works. The high-range drivers are designed to deliver everything with minimum distortion, while the mid driver offers a flat sound from 10 Hz to 5 kHz. The bass driver was designed for an even steeper low-pass effect with no distortion.
Freqphase Time / Phase Waveguide
  • Most multiple-driver IEMs suffer from phase and timing issues. Low, mid, and high drivers all have different impulse times. The higher the frequency, the faster the impulse time of the BA Driver. The lower it is, the slower the response speed. This causes improper arrival times and phase shifts.
  • The Michelle applies Jerry Harvey Audio's patented Freqphase technology, which uses precisely cut tube lengths for each driver to minimize the phase shift of each frequency. This allows for the high, mid, and low drivers to be aligned to 1/100ms for the most ideal phase curve. It ensures the correct time alignment and phase of all drivers, which results in accurate music reproduction.
Three Balanced-Armature Drivers Per Side
  • Michelle’s 3 balanced-amateur drivers boast a much smaller size and greater efficiency compared to conventional dynamic drivers. Enjoy the full range of sonic details, thanks to the balanced-amateur-driver design with Freqphase technology.
3D-Printed Ergonomic Shell
  • A proper "seal" is essential to the performance of any universal IEM. The design of the Michelle represents an exhaustive research and development project on the ergonomics of IEM fit. The 3D-printed shell gives Michelle a fit that represents a significant breakthrough in IEM shell shape and the angle of the nozzle, resulting in noticeable comfort and acoustic seal.
Silver Tinsel Cable with Detachable 2-Pin Connector
  • The cable used in the Michelle is not common copper. Instead, it is a copper cable plated with silver. The cable is manufactured by first compressing the silver-plated copper wire, then flattening and rolling it into a steady interval, eventually wrapping it around Kevlar. This newly developed cable has significant tensile strength and delivers the full dynamic range of music. There are two different types of cables provided; a 3.5mm unbalanced and 2.5mm balanced cable.
  • Conventional straight cables do not handle frequent bending well; consequently, they often short out. The intertwined cable disperses the stress to the cable and offers better resilience. It's also easier to wear around the outer ears, as the cable shape can be easily adjusted for a comfortable fit.
