See Audio is released on our favorite headphones of the year with the See Audio Yume. It’s been almost ten months since that version’s release, but the company is getting back to Yume again, this time with the help of the all-star community, Crinacle of In-Ear Fidelity. IEM has been re-tuned and upgraded for “higher resolution, better extension, wider sound, [and] more active. “In other words, Midnight makes Yume better than ever and will be sold exclusively through HiFiGo.
When we reviewed the Yume, we were impressed by its sound quality given its $169 price tag. Its tuning follows Harman Target, a sound profile based on mainstream listeners, as So perhaps it’s not surprising that listeners agreed and made Yume a popular choice and quite hyped around its release. The criticism it received was mainly based on its bass and technical performance.
That’s where Crinacle comes in. Crinacle is as close to a celebrity as the headphone community, running the largest database of headphone and headphone measurements in existence today. Crinacle has a history of not hitting, which has made him one of the most trusted sources on the internet for headphone impressions. As a result, he has become one of the most trusted audio reviewers in the business today, and his website is an important resource for listeners and brands alike. His community support is also evident in his return to YouTube in August of this year, where he quickly skyrocketed from a few thousand subscribers to 109,000 as of press time. this.
With Yume: Midnight, Crinacle set out to create a “engineering Yume,” a version of the headset that addressed community feedback. Research team at HiFiGo, the exclusive retailer of See Audio Yume: Midnight, shared the following in their blog post.
“The Yume: Midnight comes with huge improvements in the lower end and high frequency regions […]
The biggest challenge in implementing Crinacle’s new tuning was improving the extension of the UHF (Ultra High Frequency) while maintaining the configuration of the original Yume, all without going too far from the Harman tuning. Original Target. To do it with a blank check is easy, but to do all that within the confines of Yume’s 2+1 driver configuration would require a miracle of engineering.
With sheer dedication and countless experiments, See Audio has done just that by overhauling almost the entire Yume from scratch; improved the Yume’s cavity design, changed the ear tips and electronic crossover filters, and adjusted the arrangement of the drivers and sound tubes inside the cavity. All to achieve the desired results without increasing the number of drivers. “
The post goes on to explain:
“In addition to tuning, Midnight also aims to address the most obvious flaw of the original Yume: the lack of ‘technical performance’. Midnight began development with the goal of being ‘technical Yume’, and on the front That said, it met and even surpassed expectations Midnight truly is a Yume with higher resolution, better extended, wider, more dynamic sound. best of the word.”
See Audio has also upgraded the accessories with Yume: Midnight
“Instead of the usual three pairs of ear tips, Midnight will be packaged with five different sizes of silicone ear tips, ensuring a comfortable musical experience for ear canals of all sizes. Cables and 2-pin sockets available. have also been upgraded, with Midnight now using 5N OCC silver-plated copper cables that have undergone rigorous tensile testing and have good ductility.”
For fans of frequency response graphs, here’s how Yume: Midnight measures up against the original Yume:
In our final verdict, we give the original Yume an 8.5 out of 10, which we consider Excellent. These enhancements are directly aimed at the reviews that we and others in the community have come up with, so it will be interesting to see how the team at See Audio and Crinacle have successfully tackled them. We hope to do so in a future review when the units become available.
Yume: Midnight will retail for $199 and is Available for pre-order now. Pre-orders are expected to begin shipping on January 15.
