Astell&Kern Michelle overview

  • 1Description

Developed through collaboration with Jerry Harvey Audio, the Astell&Kern Michelle Limited are universal in-ear monitor headphones in the Siren Series, utilizing the same technology as the Angie and Rosie models. The Michelle Limited uses a slightly different housing and manufacturing process for an even more affordable price over the original Michelle. Like all the Siren Series universal in-ear monitors, the Michelle Limited allows you to hear the music the way the recording artist and mix engineer intended it to sound and 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, the Michelle Limited 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 millisecond of each other; this ensures the correct time alignment and phase of all three 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, the Michelle Limited offers a noise isolation of -26 dB, which helps keep the ambient sounds of your surroundings to a minimum. There are two detachable 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 work. 
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 Limited 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 1/100 ms, 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
  • The Michelle Limited's 3 balanced-amateur drivers boast a much smaller size and greater efficiency compared to conventional dynamic drivers.
3D-Printed Ergonomic Shell
  • A proper seal is essential to the performance of any universal IEM. The 3D-printed shell represents a significant breakthrough in both the shell shape and the angle of the nozzle; this gives the Michelle Limited both a comfortable fit and an acoustic seal that reduces ambient sound.
Silver Tinsel Cable with Detachable 2-Pin Connector
  • The cable used in the Michelle Limited is not common copper; instead, it's 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 your music. There are two different types of cables provided: one a 3.5mm unbalanced, the other a 2.5mm balanced.
  • Conventional straight cables do not handle frequent bending well; consequently, they often short out. The intertwined cable disperses the stress 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.
