Gold Planar GL12 IEM

Gold Planar GL12 comes with a large size driver, 12.5mm planar diaphragm, along with an ultra-thin nanometer diaphragm to present excellent dynamic performance and detailed positioning. Patented N52 neodymium compensational double magnetic circuit provides high efficiency while pushing forward the sensitivity to 108dB, a level that’s hard to reach in this industry. With a unique structural design, GL12 maintains low distortion as other types of earphones.

Combining the accuracy of planar magnetic drivers with the customizability of switchable tuning nozzles, Gold Planar’s GL12 IEM takes earphone listening to new heights. Ultra-responsive, the 12.5-millimeter planar magnetic drivers found in each earphone feature a nanometers-thick diaphragm for excellent dynamic performance and detail, as well as powerful N52 neodymium magnets for maximum efficiency. Encasing these drivers, aluminum housings weighing only 6.5 grams each provide rugged durability with a featherlight fit. Ensuring excellent signal transmission, a braided, silver-plated copper balanced cable provides optimal audio quality and reliability. Finally, to help you customize your listening experience, each G12 IEM comes with two interchangeable tuning nozzles: a bass-heavy tube and a broad-filter tube.

Gold Planar GL12 has two types of filter tubes in the package. The narrow 3.8mm filter tube provides more bass while the 4.4mm broad filter tube is better at high frequency.

GL12 adopts aviation aluminum alloy for the shell. With the anodizing process, the surface feels smooth but also a little textured and luxurious. Even designed with this type of shell, it weighs only about 6.5g for each earbud. Lightweight and comfortable to wear even for a long time with less microphonics and it’s also suitable for female who has a smaller ear.

GL12 comes with a high-quality OFC silver-plated cable, designed in a 4.4mm balanced plug and 0.78mm 2Pin gold-plated connector. A special Litz braiding structure ensures stable transmission while also being high-end and soft. Despite that, the hot-bending pre-shaped earhook is much more comfortable than traditional earphones.

As a planar earphone, GL12 is also easy to drive because of its high sensitivity.
