About Kiwi Ears

We are a small international group of engineers with a single goal of producing the best sounding audio solutions for musicians and audiophiles. We focus on developing the latest technological driver innovations with refined tuning strategies that reveal every nuance in your music and performance. Our small team of dedicated engineers handcraft each unit so that you can worry less about what’s in your ears and focus more on the sounds you are making. We’re bringing melodies that inspire. 

Kiwi Ears x Crinacle

We have collaborated with Crinacle, one of the world’s best renown audio reviewers. Crinacle has forever changed the in-ear monitor industry with his frequency measurement database, which is the biggest compilation of tonal signatures available online. By allowing people to visualize sound signatures of headphones and earphones, Crinacle has demystified the audio industry, paving a new path for scientific and transparent approach in designing headphones and earphones. Crinacle has provided his expertise in designing the Singolo, which showcases his years of experience and knowledge of in-ear monitors. 

Kiwi Acoustic Resonance System (KARS)

KARS is not a gimmick – it is a discrete band-pass filter that manipulates airflow to the driver, regulating low frequency output. This patented innovation features an elaborate labyrinth tubing network that has been designed after numerous scientific and physical models to perfectly calculate the appropriate resonance point for the Singolo’s driver. KARS makes a tight sub-bass shelf possible; something that has been previously impossible in a single-driver IEM. The bass quality, quantity, and texture are all incomparable to any other tuning strategy used in a similar driver format.
Unlike traditional crossover networks that uses multiple drivers with RC (resistor-capacitor) networks, KARS instead uses Helmholtz resonance to regulate its tuning. Airflow to a dynamic driver regulates how much the diaphragm can respond, but also requires additional calculations of flow rate, direction, and volume. KARS allows exact regulation of this airflow to manipulate the sound as we desire. While capacitors and resistors provide a calculated means of crossover solutions, they also add unwanted artifacts to the sound in the form of distortion, especially when cheap SMD components are used.

With KARS, the sound you are hearing is directly from the driver itself, which translates into a pure and higher resolving audio experience without the hindrance of passive electrical components. KARS also eliminates the need for driver venting meshes, which has been traditionally used to regulate airflow into drivers. These meshes have low tolerances, causing unit-variances, as well as weak durability. KARS’ precise engineering eliminates this potential for imbalances and delivers a uniform sound in every unit.
The specific length, dimensions, and right-angled corners of KARS had to be scientifically calculated and tested to control the sub-bass shelf. KARS is precisely 3D-printed with a 1.0 micron precision. The labyrinth regulates airflow to the rear of the dynamic driver chamber, tightly controlling the back pressure to the diaphragm. This achieves two things simultaneously - it accurately regulates the sub-bass and bass response, and it also regulates pressure ventilation within your ear, which allows more comfortable and pressure-free listening. Finally, KARS allows a calculated removal of rear wave reflections from the driver, reducing wave cancellation and creating a higher quality sound. 

Custom Japan-made LCP Diaphragm Driver

To best showcase the KARS system, the Singolo features a custom Japanese Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm driver. This 11mm dynamic driver is custom created for our KARS format, with unique front and rear acoustic chamber profiles. LCP was chosen for the diaphragm material due to its crisp, yet natural tonal characteristics. Harder metal-based diaphragms tend to have a metallic tinge to their timbre, while plastic-based diaphragms tend to sound dull. LCP provides a perfect balance between rigidity for fast transients, and natural timbre.
Implementing KARS, this driver has been precision-tuned using only acoustic dynamics, meaning the sound you hear is purely from the driver. 

Crinacle’s Tonal Signature

The Singolo is tuned in accordance to Crinacle’s tonal signature. It’s a synthesis of all of the best tuning profiles found in the world’s most successful earphones throughout the years. Featuring a 8dB sub-bass shelf, the bass is incredibly hard hitting and powerful, but it pristinely cuts off at 300Hz. This allows for a neutral midrange that articulates the natural sound of vocals and instruments without any artificial bloating or muddiness. The treble follows the perfect in-ear pinna compensatory curvature, with a clean 3kHz peak and a natural decay into the upper treble. With the Singolo, the name of the game is a perfectly natural sound signature - a subwoofer without the subwoofer.

Detachable Cable System

The Singolo comes standard with a detachable cable system. Using 2-pin 0.78mm connectors, the cable can be detached and swapped with any other cable. This allows a customizable user experience, as well as effectively increasing the lifespan of the Singolo.

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*. 

*This applies for most countries. However, large items such as headphones and desktop DAC/AMPs (e.g. HarmonicDyne G200, MUSICIAN MDP-2, and etc.) are excluded.

Shipping fees exclude import taxes or processing fees that may be applicable for your country. Kiwi Ears is not responsible for such fees. 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. The cost of the freight charges may be more than the amount reflected on your order due to tax and other miscellaneous fees.

Some parcels claimed to be “returned to the seller” may be destroyed by the post office or customs officers when buyers refuse to accept their parcels or fail to pay for their taxes. No refund will be processed for such cases.

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.

For certain remote areas, there may be additional charges via Express Shipping. We will contact you if there is a need to make additional payments.
