New Mobile Devices

Headphone Amp "C9" and In-Ears "YD01 Fantasy" from Cayin

Cayin is introducing two new mobile devices: the C9 headphone amplifier and the YD01 Fantasy in-ear headphones, which are also supposed to harmonize perfectly with each other.

The new Cayin C9 mobile tube headphone amplifier offers a fully balanced and fully discrete design, offering up to 4,100 mW (at 16Ω) or 2,600 mW (at 32Ω) of output power per channel. Users can choose to either use vacuum tube or solid-state circuitry. Both are available on the balanced as well on the unbalanced inputs. The tube circuit is built with a pair of KORG Nutube vacuum tubes. The amplification mode can also be chosen; thus, you can switch between pure Class A and Class AB. The headphone amp can also optionally be operated in pure power amp mode. If you use the amp in regular line mode, a 4-channel ALPS potentiometer takes care of adjusting the volume. The battery module is removable and is fed by four Sony18650 lithium-ion batteries. Introductory price: around 2,200 euros*.

The new Cayin YD01 Fantasy in-ears use 2-way magnets in a dual chamber, which are driving beryllium-coated 10.3-millimeter bio-cellulose membranes. The polished cabinet is made of extra high quality 316 stainless steel. The included 1.3-meter, four-core cable with gold-plated connectors consists of eight OCC copper strands each with a silver-coated core. This design is said to provide excellent conductivity and prevent annoying structure-borne noise transmission. External noise is said to be reduced by 26 dB due to the high mechanical damping. This aims to make the high efficiency of 108 dB particularly impressive. The MSRP for the YD01 Fantasy is said to be around 1,000 euros*.

The two new devices from Cayin are available now*.
