Fender in-ear montiors

Fender provided the first big surprise of NAMM 2016 with the launch of its first ever in-ear monitor series.

The guitar giant has launched its first ever in-ear monitor series.

Fender has made a surprise launch into the world of in-ear monitoring at NAMM 2016.

In an unexpected announcement, the US guitar giant unveiled its first ever range of in-ear monitors, featuring a unique patented technology and designed to offer an ‘immersive listening experience at every price point’.

“The launch of the Fender In-Ear Monitor Series is an exciting step in the expansion of our product offering,” said Jim Ninesling, VP of Fender Amplifiers and Pro Audio. Fender is committed to delivering innovative products and services that accompany players at every stage of their musical experience. We believe serious players and discriminating audiophiles alike will appreciate both the design and performance of Fender IEM’s, setting the stage for further additions to this new line in the future.”

Designed and assembled in Nashville, Fender’s Pro In-ear Monitors offer a number of premium features, include 3D-printed Digital Hybrid Technology (DHT) housings in the higher-end models, which are derived by scanning thousands of ears to create a universal fit. The DHT shells are designed to fit 95 per cent of ears.

All models feature custom designed drivers and select models in the series feature a patented Hybrid-Dynamic tuned Balanced Armature Array (HDBA) for a full frequency response with substantial bass and an overall optimum performance.

The 2015 acquisition of Aurisonics has, says the firm, allowed it to‘enter this new category with a significant advantage with the use of the company’s technology and engineering capabilities’.

The 2016 Fender Pro In-Ear Monitor Series will be available in five models. Accompanying each package is a deluxe carrying case, SureSeal tips assortment, a cleaning tool and cable and will be available for consumer purchase in March 2016.
