Echobox Audio Brings Portable Hi-Fi Sound to the Masses
Echobox Audio wants to bring a great music experience to all music lovers, and if they can satisfy a professional, then you’ll be impressed too.
Their high resolution Echobox Explorer audio player supports PCM playback of up to 24 Bit/192 kHz and losslessly converts DSD files. It looks like a wooden flash and is made from solid blocks of wood (4 options: Maple, Mahogany, Ebony and Cedar.)
- 64GB of internal storage
- Headphone jack
- Optical line out for your He-Man stereo rig
- 4000mAH battery for 8-16 hour playback
- Android 6.0 Operating system (not play store certified)
- 3 months of free Tidal hifi, discount subscription after
The model costs $599, and an optionally matching wood charging stand goes for $75. Though if you prefer a more modern design, you could always take a look at the Astell & Kern AK100 II.
On their earbud side, they offer:
The Nomad ($399)
Virtually indestructible titanium earbuds with ergonomic form factor – durable, lightweight, naturally hypoallergenic. They have removable 3.5mm stereo plugs that can be replaced with Lightning or USB-C cables.
The Finder ($159)
Solid titanium with 9.2mm PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone) drivers, premium Comply T-400 isolation foam tips and also a non-mic version going for $149 (for the Japanese market.)
Both the Nomad and Finder have an AFT system (Acoustic Filter Tuning) changing the sound signature of the earphone going between bass, treble and midrange for great, balanced sound.
The Traveler entry level ($99)
Echobox’s gateway for non-audiophiles into Hi-Fi sound. This is their entry level set; their T1i model has an Apple certified mic while the T1a variant is for Android based phones.
