hight efficiency Linearphase

ANOTHER LEAP FORWARD

Based on the success of the current flagship RS10, we reconsidered some key concepts of the original design. Even though the RS10 holds its ground as a reference in-ear monitor, its complex crossover system makes it hard to drive. With the RS5 we have created an avant-garde BA in-ear monitor that has a higher effi‐ ciency and is easier to drive – at a lower cost!

After one and a half years of dedicated research, SoftEars finally

unveiled the all-new RS5, a 5 BA driver with similar reference

sound performance as the RS10. Not only does it provide “Refer‐

ence Sound”, but the new driver configuration and crossover net‐

work make the RS5 easy to drive. It can produce great dynamics

even from a conventional source like a smartphone.

The RS5 is unique in the Reference Sound line-up, not only

because of its high efficiency, but also its capability to reproduce

great dynamics like they are required from modern recordings.

SATIN CARBON & GOLD FOIL

The importance of an earphone is not only its sound. With the RS5 we bring trusted experience and modern technology together. This is represented by the combination of carbon fiber fragments with gold foil – a liaison of a cutting-edge material with a valuable metal. Every pair of RS5 receives a unique faceplate by our skilled designers. This handcrafted process makes the RS5 an artwork on top of a set of reference earphones.

OPTIMIZED 3-WAY CROSSOVER FOR 5BA DRIVERS

Great sound has high design requirements. The RS5 successfully combines acoustical filters with complex crossovers to have the BA drivers unfold excellent dynamics under the requirement of a near-perfect frequency response and near-linear phase. This is a rare and truly remarkable feat in audio engineering.

Utilizing acoustical filters and crossovers, the RS5 delivers aston‐ ishing audio performance. The crossover consists of a 3rd order LRC filter for bass, an impedance + low pass for the midrange, as well as a film capacitor for the high frequencies, totaling in 6 com‐ ponents to properly divide the signal to the 5 drivers per earpiece.

Another important aspect of the crossover system is the phase response. Most of the multi-driver designs on the market cannot achieve phase consistency, obstructing the timbre and imaging. The RS5 ensures a high consistency of phase across the audible spectrum, creating smooth transitions between drivers and an highly accurate soundstage.
