NEWS – Okay, I’ll admit it. I have a weakness for in-ear headphones—or as I like to call them, plain ole’ earphones. It started with a pair of Future Sonics Atrio earphones I won in a contest. Not only did those earphones introduce me to the joys of personal audio, they also sparked my entry into reviewing audio gear. Because of that, I am constantly scouting the newest and (hopefully) best earphones and headphones available—which brings me to Shinola. This high-end American made brand from Detroit manufactures all kinds of gear, including audio. Shinola has now introduced the new Canfield Pro In-Ear Monitors.
The Canfield Pro In-Ear Monitors are a new direction for Shinola—a move into the pro arena, catering to music professionals as well as the discerning at-home listener.
Shinola states that while the Canfield Pro In-Ear Monitors were specifically crafted for artists performing live, they think everyone should be able to enjoy unparalleled sound anywhere. That’s why the monitors were designed to have the qualities professional musicians need with the addition of an inline microphone, volume control and a multifunctional button for everyday use.
Each Pro In-Ear monitor is powered by two balanced armature receivers—a bass woofer with a mid-high range tweeter. Shinola’s sound signature focuses on vocals while providing enough bass for support, but to never overwhelm.
The Canfield Pro In-Ear Monitors have interchangeable memory foam and silicone ear tips, for hours of comfortable listening. The detachable monitor cable swivels for additional comfort. Developed in-house with Campfire Audio, every pair is fully designed, tuned, built and tested in the United States.
The Canfield Pro In-Ear Monitors come in both silver or black and sell for $495 direct from Shinola.
