HiBy Yvain
HiBy Yvain

HiBy Yvain – new reinforcement headphones with 4 drivers from the world’s top manufacturers. Two divers from Knowles + two from Sonion.

HiBy Yvain

HiBy named this pair after the classic 12th century novel Yvain, Knight of the Lion, which tells the heroic story of the medieval knight Yvain. He was faced with a dilemma between keeping his promise to his beloved and fulfilling his personal mission. In self-exile, he rediscovered the meaning of this phrase, and the lion he saved became his faithful companion in his adventures. The CNC machined aluminum caps are engraved with a lion’s face as a key design element.

HiBy has equipped each side with a four-driver Multi-BA system. It uses high-quality balanced armature drivers Knowles and Sonion, combined into a three-way frequency crossover. The woofer is a Knowles BA driver with strong bass response, the full-frequency driver is a SONION dual composite driver, and the tweeter is a high-end Knowles armature driver. They provide excellent resolution and crisp detail while maintaining a reference tuning profile.

HiBy Yvain ships with a high quality PCOCC cable with a balanced Litz Type 4 Coaxial design. It provides low internal resistance and low distortion, and also protects the signal from external interference. The cable is equipped with standard 0.78 mm connectors, as well as a system of interchangeable connectors. The package includes 3.5mm single-ended, 4.4mm balanced and 2.5mm balanced plugs.
