Do you find that your headphones/ IEMs often have a background hiss from your source? All you need to do is connect the iFi Audio iEMatch to your headphone before plugging it into your source device and voila! You get a sound that's open & transparent. It is compatible with smartphones, PCs, DAPs and in-flight entertainment systems.
Usually, at full volumes, music tends to lose at least 2-bits of resolution. The iEMatch brings back this lost resolution letting you increase the digital volume. It is compatible with all headphones and IEMS that use a 3.5mm or 2.5mm jack. It comes with two sensitivity settings, High and Ultra Sensitivity to boost the sound.
The iEMatch easily switches between balanced and single-ended headphones & IEMs. Headphones fitted with a TRRS jack can alternate between a balanced mode to match DAPs, DACs and headphone amplifiers while the single-ended mode is compatible with smartphones. The ‘S-Balanced®’ TRRS system by iFi provides a way to select the TRRS plug to offer either a balanced connection or a single-ended one.
The iEMatch uses 6063-TS aluminium and a 6N silver copper matrix for better signal transfer. Durable gold-plated TRRS-Balanced connectors complete the package. You also get memory foam earplugs along with an aeroplane adapter and travel pouch for in-flight use.

"In my testing, the iEMatch was a huge improvement in everyday use. I mostly use in-ears and most of my headphones are very efficient, too.This is a dead easy recommendation."Read More
"The iEMatch lets me pair them with anything, including my cell phone, without having to deal with nasty background hiss or listening at a louder volume than I'm comfortable with."Read More
"It would be worth its price if it provided better volume control with sensitive earphones alone, but given it also removes hisses and provides better impedance matching."Read More
"The biggest boon of this adapter is the ability to use your sensitive in-ear headphones with powerful amps, without going deaf. Its the perfect accessory for a of high-quality earphones."Read More
I Listen to IEMs at low volume for most of the day, so dynamic range at low volume is extremely important to me. My Kaiser encores however turned out to be hiss prone out of even supposedly silent sources like the chord mojo. Got the IFI IEMatch to attenuate the noise and it works like a charm. On the ultra sensitive setting it changes the output impedance of the device(Mojo) to 1Ohm and this doesn't seem to effect the sonic character of the kaiser encores, so I'm happy with the purchase. I'm more apprehensive about using the IEmatch with my campfire andromedas, which are very sensitive to output impedance and are hiss monsters in their own right, will see if there is synergy between them.
Little instrument is great product to get clear music, but only thing I feel it's decrease volume booster so amplifier is required to enjoy clear and hi quality music, I recommend this little magic instrument for music lover.
It's an amazing buy for High end Iems which are very sensitive. It removes all the background hiss and gives much wider range of volume control on high power output dac/amps. This is again not something everyone should buy for every Iem it's made to solve a very specific issue so buy it only if you get hiss out of your source output
Used it with Campfire audio Polaris V2 on ifi hip dac and fiio q1 mk2
Putting lg g7 in high impedance mode and setting imatch in high sensitivity mode l. I am no high end audiophile but to me sound feels clear , better dynamics.
It's a great little dongle that absolutely deletes the noise floor on some songs and reduces it to a great extent for others. Good when paired with sensitive IEMs.
Thanks a ton for sharing your review with us.
It eliminates the hiss and also increase the dynamic range. Very good purchase. I am very happy with my purchase decision.
Hey Sreekanth, its good to hear that you are loving your new purchase. Thanks for sharing your feedback with us.
If you are an owner of the CFA andromeda, this a must buy for you to increase air and improve dynamics with a majority of sources. Trust me you are probably missing out on the full potential of your little green monsters by not using these awesome thingys, as very few sources are able to do full justice to an Andromeda without an IEmatch. I love the SE one so much that I even bought a 2.5mm one.
I have the andromedas which hiss outta pretty much everything. I initially wanted to get ie match for just eliminating the dreaded hiss. I have come to really enjoy the cleaner sound and slightly increased dynamics. A must have for any sensitive iem. Hpz delivered it during Corona in record time. Kudos
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time out to leave us this note. We look forward to serving you again.
