NuForce Primo 8 In-Ear Headphones

NuForce just released their flagship audiophile-quality in-ear headphones, the Primo 8, priced at $500. The company claims their new earphones reproduce vocals unlike any other in-ear headphone on the market today. In addition, they proclaim stellar bass, captivating mids and delicate highs to envelop the listener in musical textures almost real enough to touch.

NuForce Primo 8 Parts

NuForce has outfitted each Primo 8 earpiece with four proprietary balanced armature speakers to form a unique 3-way design. The four balanced-armature drivers located in each earphone deliver smooth, extended response, explosive dynamic realism and fatigue-free sound. Two of the speakers operate as one for bass frequencies, with one speaker for midrange and one speaker for treble.

With two speakers working in tandem to reproduce the lowest frequency ranges, the listener will experience the purest, most natural bass possible. The Primo 8’s fast, rock-solid bass operates as the foundation for dynamic sound reproduction previously available only in the most costly over-ear dynamic and electrostatic designs.

The graininess of other balanced armature earphone designs is often the result of crosstalk between drivers due to their crossover network’s inability to prevent excessive frequency overlap. To combat this, NuForce has created a patent-pending three-way phase-coherent crossover design that achieves linear phase performance. This results in a natural, three-dimensional soundstage, lightning-fast transients and crystalline transparency.

The Primo 8’s proprietary crossover design has the earphone’s four speakers singing together as one.  The results of this technology are clearly audible. Plucked strings take on an amazingly life-like presence, vocalists sound as if they are there in-the-flesh, percussion explodes in a truly three-dimensional sound stage. With the Primo 8, the subtlest of details appear magical and the sound is never fatiguing.

To achieve the Primo 8’s unprecedented sound, nothing less than the best audio cable will do. To be sure, there is more to the apparently smooth and lightweight cable than meets the eye. Inside this unique NuForce star-pattern Litz cable are several advanced technologies designed to achieve the most accurate sound reproduction possible.

For strain relief, typically a weak point of earphones, the Primo No. 8’s cable is built around a core of Kevlar Silk.  This core is then surrounded by a star pattern of seven silver wires. A layer of insulation envelops the silver wires, which in turn is surrounded by another star-pattern of nine bundles of fine gauge, seven-stranded, individually insulated OFC wires – a technique called Litz construction. The entire cable assembly is then jacketed in a pliable polymer to eliminate mechanical noise contamination. Taking cable design to its zenith, Primo 8 employs independent left and right ground wiring to reduce inter-channel crosstalk and maximize channel separation.

Uniting advanced, proprietary design, with a chorus of uncompromising features has empowered the Primo 8 Headphones to deliver true, industry-leading performance. We believe you will also find that NuForce innovation and dedication to changing the way we listen gives it the ultimate advantage… unparalleled value well above all others in its price-class and beyond.

Pricing and Availability
The NuForce Primo 8 is available worldwide for $499 (USD).
