Everything you wanted and everything you needed

In addition to many small portable devices on the market, EarMen wants to set the standards. Our team has specially designed balanced, battery powered device - small in size but strong in performance, which will give you a unique experience you have never had before.

Wherever you go, take your music with you and feel the real enjoyment with EarMen Colibri!

Let the music be with you

The most important feature of the device is its ability to provide clear and full-spectrum audio experience. Colibri uses the latest state-of-art hardware and software solutions in its construction, all of which come together to provide a natural and detailed listening experience.

The mid and high range frequencies beautifully complement the lowest tones, with consistent balance across all spectrums, resulting in a comprehensive sound image without the impression of any “missing” aspects of the music. The tones are displayed directly and without beautification, so whatever device you choose to use will be reflected accurately as intended by the designer.

EarMen Colibri shines through with excellent separation and pronounced stereo effect, while keeping all frequencies balanced during complex listening sessions.

Premium audiophile DAC

The heart of the Colibri is the flagship of the ESS line ES9281 PRO DAC. The ESS SABRE PRO series is for premium audiophile and sets a new benchmark in high-end audio by offering the highest dynamic range (DNR) with impressively low levels of total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD+N). Colibri supports Hi-Res PCM files up to 32bit/384kHz PCM, DoP, DSD64, DSD128 and MQA . In short, all in one solution.

Battery powered

Colibri has its own battery and will not consume the sound source battery. Battery power provides ultra-clean and stable DC current avoiding the issues of noise-inducing RFI/EMI pollution.

MQA

Colibri supports Tidal Masters (MQA)

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download.
