Celebrating Cardas Audio’s 30th anniversary, the new A8 Ear Speaker has the same great sound as the original A8, with a beautiful black-chrome plating, a slightly longer cable, and improved strain relief. As with the origianl A8, the A8 30th Anniversary Edition sounds neutral and musical, just as you'd expect from Cardas Audio.

A8 review by John Darko
A8 Ear Speakers feature the 10.85mm Ultra Linear, Contour Field, Dual Magnet Driver - designed by George Cardas, producing brilliant highs and deep bass - but most importantly, it sounds musical. They are terminated with a 3.5mm (1/8") gold-plated stereo plug by default, but can be terminated for nearly any application such as balanced output for the Astell & Kern players and the Ayre Acoustics headphone amps.
