Elysian Acoustic Labs
The presence of Elysian Acoustic Labs at the Tokyo Headphone Festival 2019 Autumn was a surprise, I remembered seeing Lee Quan Min during the KL AV Show in 2018. Back then, the company was a small start-up in Malaysia, a one-man setup doing custom IEMs and re-shelling at the side. Back then, I provided him with my honest comments of his IEMs.
Kudos to Lee Quan Min, he took my comments positively and a year later, he not only carved out his own niche but also built a fan base in Japan. Confidently, he invited me again to listen to his current offerings and I was not disappointed. I would like to mention about the Annihilator, the current Flagship.
Being a participant of the Foster Alliance Program, Elysian Acoustic Labs implemented Foster’s Dynamic Driver with 2 Knowles’ Balanced Armature Drivers, 2 Sonion Balanced Armature Drivers and 2 Electrostatic Drivers with a 4-way crossover. Elysian Acoustic Labs also joined the increasing number of manufacturers to adopt the new Pentaconn Ears connector in place of the traditional 2-pin 0.78mm connector.
