Individual monitors AM6 HiRez from Ambient Acoustics




С HiSound RoCoo-P

I’m already familiar to the reader with the Kiev Laboratory Ambient Acoustics and their products, first by the example of monitors AM4 , and then in the course of the story about the new models . From the middle of the summer, I am the owner of their flagship Ambient Monitor 6 HiRez, on which the cover in this review.

Individual intracanal monitors – it’s expensive, very expensive solution: usually the price is such that the money can buy a budget speaker system and more money for a simple amplifier will remain. So to say that the CIEM (custom in-ear monitors) solution for everyone – not. Buyer “custom bikes” should understand that he is buying boxed product works, created just under his ears and often optimized only for his hearing. Product that provides the highest possible sound quality in a portable, convenient, and sound insulation. After weighing these factors “for” and “against”, and you’ll come to a conclusion – for you whether such a purchase. Note also that after the purchase “custom bikes” way back will not sell them as normal headphones are cheaper by 20 percent no longer happens, and more often than not feel like it.

Packaging and Design

Headphones come in super plastic case Pelican, so for their safety can not worry. Box looks very militaristichno for that – plus separate. Inside the box – thick soft material that protects valuable content.

Except the headphones, you get: a half meter detachable cable of soft coiled cord, a tool for cleaning the channels of sulfur, and the desiccant capsule-pouch-bag with straps. By default, a removable cable with a standard plug mikrovilkami and the locations of the connectors on the headphones designed for BTE worn cable, but as an option, you can order the monitors with non-replaceable cable with round MCX connectors and cable outlet down.

Since I started talking about the additional options – it’s worth noting that for some money, you can further modify their IEM, adding engraved case study, the steeper the cables from Vesper Audio, TV displays a different color, and a through-situ ventilation, install sulfur filters, as well as Customized colors for the body and multi-color printing on the lids.


In general, we can say that for your money will be executed every whim.

I’m on a “let well enough alone” did not change the design of their monitors by the same blue color with white logo and a sound guide Ambient Acoustics on the outside.

Внутренняя сторона

The new line of IEM Ambient Acoustics have focused on the acoustic matching drivers, which led to better dynamics than previous models. In a 6-Driver HiRez, as the name implies, the developers have further extended resolution compared to previous models, adding more elaborate infra and ultra high frequency. What is the result?

Headphones have turned out very musical, with a pleasant involving feed. They do not have the detached neutrality AM3 RefEdition, «Six” develop ideas AM4 last line. The sound has an emphasis on the bass, but, of course, without the unhealthy excesses. Two low-frequency drivers give juicy and tight bass, while controlling it well. Listening AM6, hard to believe that it is clean valves, rarely armature headphones give this drive.

Mids a bit understated, but do not lose detail, and in general worked perfectly. Instrument sounds very lively, with presence, tools are easily distinguished from each other, to understand their position on the stage and sound character.

HF band worked a lot better than most of the headphones. Despite the fact that the upper limit is declared “only” to 19 kHz (at a time when many manufacturers write and 20, and 30 kHz) – AM6 really play up to the stated 19 kHz, with a decent volume level, with no major complaints. Due to this, AM6 have a pronounced effect surround and are very good at winning back the reverberation and quiet sounds. Virtually no sibilance.

Много кабелей

In general, AM6 – variant taste, music and having her serve. He’s definitely not suitable lovers smooth and dry sound.

Actually headphones are quite good even on simple sources. You can listen to them with an iPod or iPhone (for the latter you can even find a cable with the headset on eBay), but it is only just to listen to them with a good source of high-quality recordings and – do not want to return back: the difference in the material, and they will show the exact path. Back to a good sound after a great – a difficult test for the real music fan.

Customise intracanal monitors – the final step in achieving the highest quality portable sound. If you are ready to make this the last chance in the world of personal audio – an appeal to the laboratory Ambient Acoustics is a smart move. First, their prices are lower than most other companies, and not to the detriment of quality, and secondly, you will save much time and money on postage.
