Premium 5 Driver Hybrid
Acoustic & visual art meeting
Destiny is sometimes loud and sometimes quiet, sometimes wild and sometimes gentle. Thus, when tuning Norn, our tuning engineer was committed to striving for high resolution, clear positioning, high-frequency extension, a spacious soundstage, and silky vocal reproduction.
Kinera Norn is the brand's latest hybrid pair of in-ear monitors. The ear cups are a real eye-catcher with a highly polished back panel and a hand-painted artistic design. It houses a five-driver-on-each-side hybrid setup that combines a powerful 7mm DD with 4 balanced armature drivers that provide excellent acoustic performance.
"Who would like Kinera Norn? Potential buyers, who are looking for a comfortable IEM with clean bass that can dig deep, smooth midrange, and a somewhat forward treble response that extends well."
"...the lows are excellent and deeply satisfying. The soundstage is always a highlight with Kinera, and they gave the Norn everything they got here. The $509 price tag is definitely reasonable too, and if you have the proper outboard gear, the Norn can be one of the best in its price range."
7mm premium dynamic driver unit
"Stereo imaging is strong with a dark background, especially with a good source. The IEM has great resolution and micro details. The instrument separation is one of the strong suits of this IEM and thanks to its good background quality everything separates nicely so it's easy to pick every element of a song....
Who can choose this IEM? If you're after a crisp treble, impactful bass for tapping your toes, and listen to lots of electronic music, then the Norn can be your IEM."
Kinera has equipped the Norn with a 7mm micro dynamic driver unit, which ensures excellent low-end response. The driver is equipped with high-quality components, such as a strong N52 ring magnet with a magnetic flux of 1.5 Tesla, a pure copper Daikoku coil imported from Japan, and a titanium-coated composite diaphragm made of high polymer fiber material. The titanium-coated composite diaphragm moves rapidly within the driver cavity, producing thunderous, high-quality bass response.
Kinera High-Performance BA Drivers
Kinera chose the high-performance BA drivers from Knowles, which are combined with the DD unit. Playback is high definition and clear with a natural tonality that takes your music experience to a whole new level. The combination of 4 high-quality Knowles BA drivers gives the Norn great high-frequency extension and clear positioning of the instruments with the utmost clarity and detail.
Professionally designed acoustic structure
The front Cavity of the beautiful Norn earcups consists of a specially designed 3-tube crossover to eliminate any possibility of multi-driver distortion. The tubes are designed with an appropriate length so as not to degrade the sound in any way and to offer the user precise frequency response over a wide frequency range.
The smooth, reflective backs of the earcups provide a superior look with hand-painted faceplates. In addition, the diffuse reflection of the backplate reduces sound leakage and delays.
High purity silver-plated copper cable
The Norn comes with a high-quality audio cable that delivers an uninterrupted audio signal to the earpieces. Imported 26AWG coaxial wire with PVC outer insulation is used as the conductor. It consists of 8 wires with 192 strands of silver-plated copper alloy in a spiral weave. The cable has universal 0.78mm 2-pin connectors and a balanced 2.5mm terminator.
