      High-fidelity audio innovator Astell & Kern teams up with iconic German headphone makers Beyerdynamic to create AK T8iE - the first high-end IEM earphones powered with Tesla Driver Technology. Developed and designed from the ground up the AK T8iE offer a superior in-ear sound experience.

      AK T8iE provides all the advantages of the exclusive Tesla technology in minimal space to reproduce the entire acoustic range neutrally and precisely. The dynamic moving-coil transducer create an extreme wide frequency range with crisp bass, well-balanced mids and crystal-clear highs.

      Each AK T8iE is handcrafted in Germany by skilled employees, who have long-term experience assembling small electronic components. Every single constituent of the AK T8iE is tested and approved multiple times before leaving the assembly line. This guarantees the highest level of quality and long lasting product durability.

      Ultimate portable high fidelity.

      Tesla Technology
      First emerged in 2009 with the reference headphones the T1 and later the AK T5p, the Tesla in-ear is dramatically miniaturized with the same characteristics of its bigger siblings. An extremely high magnetic flux density within a ring magnet ensures a balanced, undistorted, transparent and neutral sound reproduction.

      Integrated Full Sound
      In comparison to other earphones with Balanced Armature (BA) technology, there is no separate transducer for bass, mid-range or treble tones. From deep bass to the highest trebles, the AK T8iE sounds like an integrated whole.

      Anatomically Shaped
      The concha design with the cable running rearwards over the ear has several advantages. The in-ears are easily inserted, and don’t fall out because the cable doesn’t pull. The oval-shaped concha moulds sit very comfortably in the auricle without any pressure.

      Great Flexibility
      Besides the standard Kevlar-reinforced 1.3m cable with the general-purpose 3.5mm plug there is an additional balanced cable for Astell & Kern devices (works with AK100 Ⅱ / AK120 Ⅱ / AK240 / AK380). It provides a balance output with its specific 2.5 mm 4-pole terminal.
