The AAW Kingfisher in-ear monitors come with a detachable boom mic for gamers

AAW Kingfisher

It's not every day you see an audiophile-focused company try to appeal to gamers. Advanced AcousticWerkes, or AAW, is a Singapore-based company that specialises in in-ear monitors, and they currently offer a range of custom and universal fit IEMs targeted at audiophiles and musicians.

However, they also make the Kingfisher, a triple-driver hybrid IEM that features a single 10mm dynamic driver, one vented balanced armature driver, and a ceramic tweeter. It's basically a more affordable take on the company's Canary universal IEM, which featured four BA, two electrostatic tweeters, and dual dynamic drivers.

The Kingfisher uses a 48-inch Null Audio Ethos MKII quad-braided detachable cable that's supposedly super flexible and lightweight. In addition, the detachable boom microphone is equipped with an MMCX connector and an 11mm condenser that the company says is supposedly good enough for professional sound recording and mixing. 

In case you really dislike how headphones clamp around your ears and don't want to have a standalone microphone on your desk, the Kingfisher seems like it could be a good alternative. 

You can get the Kingfisher now for S$349, together with a carrying case, cleaning cloth, flight and 6.5mm adapter, and various ear tips. On top of that, you'll have the option to spring for a custom faceplate for an additional S$50.

However, Zeppelin & Co. has an early bird offer going on till the end of October, which will let you get a customised faceplate at no extra cost.
