Specifications

The Atrio SE earphones use 10mm mg7 drivers with a frequency response of 18Hz to 20,000Hz and have 32 ohms impedance. The sensitivity is 112db and they are designed to block up to 112db @ 30Hz. They have 51" cables and 3.5mm headphone plug. The special edition earphones also have a carry case made from reclaimed inner tube rubber.

In Use

This the most expensive set of earphones I have reviewed to date and I expected a lot of performance from them. The Atrio SE earphones have a chocolate brown case and come with a bunch of different ear tips. They earphones come with four pairs of comfort foam sleeves in large and four pair in small. The also ship with Earfills silicone sleeves in S,M,L and they come with a loopt cleaning tool.

The earphones fit me perfectly with the ear tips that ship on them. The tips are different from the ones I am used to seeing on other earphones. Rather than having one sealing section, these have two. That blocks out a lot more of the room sounds and traps more of your music inside the ear. The sound quality from the Atrio SE earphones is fantastic. This is easily the best sounding earphones I have tried. The nuances that you can hear with these in music are hard to describe. At first, I was caught off guard listening to some of my test tracks because the sound is so different from on other earphones and headphones I have used. I thought the EQ on my iPhone was changed, but it was on the same settings you can just hear more with the Atrio SE earphones.

I can hear much more of the vocal range and things are much crisper and audible than I am used to. The bass is also fantastic and deep. The case the Atrio SE earphones ship with looks like an ear and is made from reclaimed inner tubes. The case has enough room for the earphones and the tips you might want to take with you on the road.

Another nice upside to the tips the earphones use is that they stay put when you move around while wearing them. Other headphones I have used move around and tend to fall out of the ears if you walk or run when wearing them, that wasn’t an issue with the Atrio SE earphones. The only thing that I can really point to as a downside to these earphones is the price. The Atrio SE earphones like I have will cost you about $229, but if you care about sound that is money well spent.

Verdict

Pros

  • Lots of ear tips
  • Carry case
  • Great sound
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Expensive
 

Conclusion

The Atrio SE earphones are awesome and if you can get over the price, they will be the best set of earphones you have owned.
