Astell&Kern has always strived to deliver something spectacularly right out of the box. Their first-ever in-ear monitor, the AK ZERO1, had garnered great success and was considered a benchmark IEM in the audiophile community. Well, this time around Astell&Kern is pleased to announce their brand-new IEM, the AK ZERO2. It is a professional IEM made using advanced technologies based on Astell&Kern's experience gained from the development of the AK ZERO1. The Astell&Kern AK ZERO2 is a quadbrid IEM featuring unique driver setups and crossovers for unmatched sound quality. Experience an oasis of pure sonic bliss with the all-new AK ZERO2!



Astell&Kern has broken all barriers with the driver setup in their all-new AK ZERO2. It features a unique quadbrid driver setup. It revolves around an advanced driver array and super low noise crossover network. Four different types of drivers, including Custom BA Drivers, a Planar Dynamic Driver, and a 10mm Dynamic Driver with Piezoelectric Transducer, create the perfect synergy making AK ZERO2 capable of reproducing spectacular sonic characteristics that Astell&Kern strives to deliver. Make your listening experience a sonic extravaganza with the brand-new AK ZERO2!



Astell&Kern has incorporated a Micro Rectangular Planar Dynamic Driver created to reproduce high frequencies. A group of tuning engineers used a trembler with a thin metal membrane and polymer film to achieve high frequencies that are as vivid to minimise frequency loss. This tuning consideration produces a high-frequency response that is both clear and lively. A custom driver created to reproduce both full-range and mid-to-low-range frequencies is the Coil Parameter Dual Custom BA Driver. It has four drivers in total, two BA drivers with extremely low distortion to provide crisp low to midrange vocals and two BA drivers with rich, perfectly balanced sounds specially tuned to harmonise each frequency band. The AK ZERO2's 10mm dynamic driver is painstakingly made using a completely automated process. The driver can now reproduce deep, rich low frequencies thanks to this. Along with the Dynamic driver, a second piezoelectric transducer creates a super tweeter for the ultra-high frequency region, which is difficult for many IEMs to reproduce.



With multi-driver configuration, there arises a situation wherein the crossover has to be done with utmost precision to make the sound more cohesive and coherent. Astell&Kern has hit that perfect sweet spot with their all-new AK ZERO2. The ultra-refined crossover network enables perfect synergy between six drivers with distinctive sound characteristics, maximising their acoustic traits while creating a balanced harmonised sound. The ultra-refined crossover network design and acoustic chamber perfectly align the four drivers that power the AK ZERO2.



Each AK ZERO2 is meticulously crafted and assembled by professional technicians with extensive experience and is produced at a state-of-the-art facility in Japan to offer you the highest quality through a strictly managed process. Each driver is placed optimally in an acoustic chamber created through refined 3D printing technology. This design eliminates any unnecessary movement and resonance of the drivers for permanently stable performance. The housing is made using Astell&Kern's advanced aluminium processing technology, which limits resonance to create high-quality sound. The diagonally cut hexagonal shape leaves a powerful impression. The shells have been crafted ergonomically to fit in your ears, allowing you to enjoy music comfortably. The colourful shapes change with the lighting to offer a new experience alongside the unmatched sound.



Astell&Kern have included a high-grade pure silver-coated 4-core OFC cable with the AK ZERO2. The pure silver-coated OFC cable is designed to maximise the performance of the AK ZERO2. It is created with high-purity silver plating and copper and adds more elegance with the plugs crafted from aluminium. The AK ZERO2 comes with two cables, 3.5mm (Single-Ended) and 4.4mm (Balanced), and MMCX connectors that offer secure and stable connection.

1 Year Warranty

Don't sweat it, this Astell&Kern - AK ZERO2 comes with a 1 Year warranty from Astell&Kern that covers manufacturing defects. All products featured on Headphone Zone are backed by an original manufacturer's warranty.
