Let the Music Be With You
The most important feature of the device is its ability to provide a clear and full-spectrum audio experience. Colibri uses the latest state-of-the-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.
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.
Colibri supports Tidal Masters (MQA), 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.
The Colibri Design
Despite its size, the Colibri is designed to provide a powerful audio experience while featuring an attractive and streamlined physical appearance. Its high-resolution specifications will not only make your tunes sound phenomenal, but their modern style will also make them look pretty amazing.
Buttons on the side will provide you the full control of the device and music, without using your source or phone.
The body of the device is made of full aluminum block milled on CnC machine, providing supreme durability. The aluminum body is beautified with a glassy surface added giving it a premium look with detailed construction manufactured to the highest standards in a European factory. The Colibri build quality exceeds the standards and ensures a timeless design.
