Cardas Ear Speaker EM5813 In-Ear Headphones
Based on the Cardas "Golden Ratio" - The Most Significant Advance in In-Ear 'Phones We've Ever Heard
After 4 years of research and development encompassing every part of the human hearing system and how it relates to Ear Speaker performance, George Cardas has left no stone unturned to develop an Ear Speaker that delivers transfixing musicality. The human hearing system, musical chords, and these Ear Speakers are reflections of the Golden Ratio. The Cardas Ear Speaker EM5813 mirrors the human cochlea, (nearly a Golden ratio itself) as well as the tympanic membrane.
The new Cardas Ear Speakers are efficient, incredibly natural, supremely musical, and are the result of years of meticulous design by George Cardas.
"The massed vocals had more body and sounded more natural. The fullness isn't overly ripe or thick, it's pure and clear; you hear subtle differences between the the original and new Bob Dylan and Miles Davis SACD remasters with ease. The sound is incredible, the four-year wait for the EM5813 Ear Speakers was worth it!"

George Cardas' brilliant engineering insights into magnetics and metallurgy have yielded a custom driver with unmatched performance. Most of the internal components in the EM5813 were manufactured in Oregon and California. Custom alloys were sourced from Italy, Germany, and the US, magnets from China, and thin-film from Japan. The EM5813 uses Cardas Clear Light Headphone Cable, with Matched Propagation technology, made by Cardas in Connecticut & California. The gold plated, 90-degree 6.5mm plug will fit through most protective covers.
"The EM5813s flatter every genre of music, the midrange is simply wonderful, and vocals sound better, more realistic and natural than from any headphones near this price. There's an open, less stuck-inside-my-head quality that's rare for this type of in-ear headphones.There's a rare dimensionality to the sound that is addictive; other headphones sound anemic and spatially squashed once you get used to the EM5813s.The sound is incredible."
