About Kiwi Ears

Driven by the pursuit of extraordinary audio reproduction, at Kiwi Ears, we create the perfect mix of technological innovations and refined tuning strategies. With musicians and studio engineers particularly in mind, we are on an uncompromising quest to produce the finest professional In-Ear Monitors that will reveal every nuance in your music and performance. Never settling for mediocrity, our small team of dedicated engineers handcrafts each unit so that you can worry less about what’s in your ears and focus more on the sounds you are making. We are Kiwi Ears, and we’re bringing you music heard like never before.

3 Hybrid Drivers for a Comprehensive Sound

The Forteza features a hybrid design utilizing 1 High-Mid balanced armature (BA) + 10mm Mid-range dynamic driver (DD) + 10mm Bass DD. This 1BA + 10mm DD + 10mm DD combination fulfills a full sound from 20Hz to 20,000Hz. Furthermore, the utilization of 2 different dynamic drivers in combination with a BA driver provides significant enhancement in the sound texture and timbre.

Rich Sound Signature

The Forteza features a three-way passive crossover system that is tuned for a rich and lush sound signature. The bass response is thick, with impactful punches. With a slower decay, the bass is more textured and rumbly, making bass guitar lines truly shine. The mids have also been tuned to be more colored and warm, providing thicker bodies to vocals and instruments. These characteristics make the Forteza excellent for people who want to enjoy a fuller sound, rather than a flat and neutral sound signature. The treble response is carefully paired to match the lows and mids, to prevent a dull or dark sound signature. The treble response closely matches target preference curvatures, with crisp articulations and full microdetail retrieval.

In-House Drivers

The Forteza features our tried and true in-house drivers for a high quality sound. Using drivers that have succeeded in our previous models, the combination of these drivers ensures maximization in both efficiency and quality. For instance, our composite 10mm dynamic driver system provides excellent bass response thanks to its intricate diaphragm composition, as well as driver size. By layering the 10mm DD with an additional 10mm low-mid DD, the low frequency range is textured with excellent imaging capabilities. Additionally, our single BA driver has been tested to excel in SPL to THD ratios across its frequency range, with great tonal characteristics. By using in-house drivers, we can ensure optimal technical and tonal performance based on our direct implementation.

Detachable Cable

The Forteza comes standard with a detachable cable featuring 0.78mm 2pin connectors. The cable can be swapped with other cables to customize your experience, as well as extend the longevity of the IEM.

Shipping FAQ

Which countries do you ship to?

We are generally able to ship to most countries via Express Shipping, and many countries via Standard Shipping. You may clarify this with our team to check whether Standard Shipping is available to your country.

We cannot ship to addresses that are "PO boxes or APO/FPO".

*Note: Generally, we can only do Selected Shipping to India and Russia. We can only do Express Shipping to Africa, Argentina, Hawaii, Kuwait, Mauritius, Montenegro and Sri Lanka, to name a few.
This may be subjected to changes due to unpredictable issues such as Covid, war, and etc.

How much does shipping cost?

We have two shipping methods - Standard Shipping and Express Shipping.

Standard Shipping is free for most countries, while Express Shipping is 15-35USD depending on your country. If your order is over 270USD, Express Shipping is free*.

Should you refuse to pay the tax/customs fees, shipping fees will still be deducted from the amount paid for the two-way freight charges.

Standard Shipping via YunExpress is a tax-inclusive option for some countries. However, Kiwi Ears will not be responsible for additional administrative or handling fees charged by your local courier company or customs. Please kindly check this with your local customs.

Nice IEM for Drummers !

From my sight as a drummer the Forteza delivers a relly good bass. The kicks come punchy and
precise. Also the toms sound really fat with a good amount of thickness and punch. The highs, for
example on hi hat and crashes cut trough the mix but they are never being harsh or fatiguing.
Another very important point for me is isolation from outside. Kiwi ears did a real good job blocking
noises from the outside on their in ears. So I can hear the drums and the rest of the band without
sound bleed from oustside, I would say the Isolation is above average compared to other in ear
The fit of the Kiwi ear Forteza is very comfortable and I reach a really good seal when im using foam
So would I recommend these for musicians ? For drummers and bassists – oh yes ! This is the best in
ear monitor I had until now in this price segment. For 66 Euros here in Europe a no brainer !!!
Definitely worth it !!
