Effect Audio X Elysian Acoustic Labs: GAEA

In a pursuit of extraordinary experiences, Effect Audio has collaborated with Elysian Acoustics Labs to produce an innovative EA take on a hybrid In Ear Monitor.

The visionary, intriguing and unforeseen partnership, a first between Effect Audio and Elysian Acoustic Labs, is the culmination of a trend of collaborations between boutique audio brands to create innovative new products that blend the best of both worlds.

The sound of GAEA is tuned by both brands while keeping an authentic Elysian Acoustic Lab's house sound.

The Divine Sound

Goddess of Earth, Gaea, is an all encompassing being, a mother of all life. In control of all 4 elements of nature, she mesmerizes by creating bliss wherever she goes. 

The acoustic focus for GAEA is undoubtedly Female Vocals. From the freshness to the brightness of the vocal cords, Gaea gives center stage to what makes the heart flutter - the magical touch of a human’s voice. With an exquisite hybrid Foster DD and Sonion BA drivers setup complemented with DiVe Pass II Dual Ventilation System, one can expect technical mastery on top of an emotive experience with Gaea.

Experience GAEA as she merges and transforms each of the 4 elements into a divine soundscape. Bask in the ethereal sound and enjoy everlasting bliss.

Effect Audio and Elysian Acoustic Labs have drawn their design inspiration from Gaea - Greek Goddess of the Planet Earth, to create an other-worldly audio experience.

Water: Innovative Match of Hybrid Drivers Utilized

-EMOTIONS: The fluid implementation of components to drive an expressive, smooth and crystal clear female voice-

The Gaea features 1 Foster Dynamic Driver and 4 Sonion Balanced Armatures. This has been awarded the gold medal by Foster for best implementation in an IEM. An unorthodox approach of implementing Sonion’s balanced armatures is on purpose to create a unique sound that is smoother and with a less metallic timbre. Both driver types work in tandem with each other to produce a gorgeous enveloping sound that is euphorically musical and yet detail focused.

Air: DiVe Pass II Dual Ventilation System

-WISDOM. Ingenious manipulation of air to provide for an optimal driver performance-

This second generation of the DiVe Pass technology improves on the original that is utilized on the renowned Elysian Annihilator. DiVe Pass II introduces independent vents that now eliminates the reverberation of the back chamber and also provides optimal pressure relief in the front chamber. This reduces driver-flex issues from diaphragm compression. Full bass potential of the dynamic driver is unleashed due to better movement of the diaphragm.

Fire: Effect Audio’s Proprietary Mix of Internal Wiring and Custom Cable

-LIFE. The key that links up all components and powers the engine! Feel the synergistic spark-

All internal wiring for Gaea has been specially chosen and custom applied by Effect Audio to Gaea to further complement and enhance sonic quality. The result of a rigorous R&D process yields an outstanding cable that uses a bespoke mix of Copper and Silver-plated Copper materials. This ensures Gaea’s sound signature is achieved harmoniously with a sonic quality that exceeds expectations.

Earth: Stabilized Wood and Resin Aesthetic

-DETERMINATION. Visual masterpiece created from an impeccable blend of materials derived from Earth-

The design inspiration from Gaea originated from the persistence in capturing the grandeur and the intricacies of Earth’s surface viewed from various macro/microscopic levels. The final stunning wave-like layer is a result of implementing stabilized rare maple wood with resin - one that is unique with every piece of Gaea.

The Voice of Gaea

Each of these 4 elements - Water, Air, Fire, and Earth are combined to create Gaea. This amalgamation of finely engineered factors brings out a sound signature that is elegant, highly detailed with precision timbre accuracy while maintaining an romantically emotional, velvety auditory experience.
