TFZ LIVE X Tesla Magnetic IEMs
Vast frequence range in a stylish body
TFZ, or The Fragrant Zither, takes its name from an ancient stringed instrument that’s similar to an autoharp. Since 2007, the company has released a series of budget-friendly IEMs that, like the zither, are both charming and easy-on-the-ears.
The TFZ Live X is an IEM, or in-ear monitor, that lands at the economic center of the company’s lineup. Featuring a Super Tesla Magnetic Flux Driver, a three-bore exhaust, and delightful pastel finishes, the Live X is a great purchase for IEM aficionados looking for a stylish upgrade.
Super Tesla Magnetic Flux Driver
The drivers in the Live X use magnetic induction to deliver powerful, efficient sound in a vast range from 5 - 40,000Hz. Rather than using a coated diaphragm like in traditional dynamic drivers, the Live X uses a multilayer membrane that delivers deep bass and pristine highs. In addition, the magnetic field created by the driver is twice as efficient as a traditional dynamic driver, which is how it achieves its ultra-low 25Ω impedance.
The Live X comes in one of four color choices: advanced white, exquisite black, jasper green, and fairy powder (pink). Most high-end headphones and IEMs come in only black, white, or another dark and masculine color, so it’s wonderful to see these in such bright, cheerful pastels.
Because the eartips of IEMs fill up your ear canal, they’re naturally isolating. They’re not as isolating as noise-cancelling IEMs or headphones, but much more so than open backs. They’re a great choice for commuting, traveling, and other scenarios in which privacy is important.
