Super Lightweight


Kiwi Ears has yet again created the perfect mix of technological innovations and refined tuning strategies in their all-new IEM, the Forteza. This anticipated IEM is equipped with a hybrid configuration of two drivers, a balanced armature driver paired with two dynamic drivers. Kiwi Ears Forteza also incorporates a three-way passive crossover circuit that is tuned for a rich and lush sound signature and is widely known for delivering better bass in your music listening experience. Kiwi Ears has featured a detachable audio cable design in the all-new Forteza, which features a 0.78mm 2-pin connector. The audio cable offers the possibility for upgrades based on your usage and maintenance purposes. This highly expected IEM is set to mark its place in the hearts of audiophiles.



Kiwi Ears has equipped the Forteza with a hybrid driver configuration of a balanced armature driver and two dynamic drivers. The balanced-armature driver is paired with a 10mm dynamic driver and a 6mm dynamic driver. The 10 mm mid-range dynamic driver aims to provide an excellent bass response with its intricate diaphragm composition while the 6mm low-mid dynamic driver provides a textured low-frequency range. The single-balanced armature driver excels in SPL to THD ratios across its frequency range with better tonal characteristics. This driver combination aims to provide a sensitivity range of 1KHz, frequency response of 20Hz to 20KHz, and impedance of 32Ω. Kiwi Ears' strategy to utilize two dynamic drivers combined with a balanced armature driver aims to deliver an improved sound texture and smooth timbre in your music listening experience.



The Forteza incorporates in-house drivers meticulously tested by Kiwi Ears to deliver top-notch sound quality. Leveraging successful drivers from our previous models, the synergy of these components ensures maximization of both efficiency and audio quality. Notably, the composite 10mm dynamic driver system, renowned for its intricate diaphragm composition and driver size, enhances bass response significantly. The incorporation of an additional 10mm low-mid dynamic driver further enriches the low-frequency range, providing textured sound with excellent imaging capabilities. Furthermore, our single balanced armature (BA) driver has undergone rigorous testing, excelling in signal-to-noise ratio (SPL to THD) across its frequency range while maintaining exceptional tonal characteristics. By utilizing our in-house drivers, we guarantee optimal technical and tonal performance through direct implementation.



The Forteza features a three-way passive crossover circuit design tuned to deliver rich sound signatures. This design works in coexistence with the drivers to produce better and more impactful bass response. The production of bass sounds more textured and rumbly, which lets you experience the exceptional bass guitar notes. The mids are tuned to deliver a warmer sound, providing a denser sound of vocals and instruments. These characteristics make the Forteza excellent for audiophiles who want to enjoy a fuller sound rather than a flat and balanced sound signature. The treble response matches the lows and mids to control dull or dark signature sound. The treble response closely matches target preference curvatures, with crisp articulations and micro detail recovery. The Kiwi Ears Forteza aims to provide you with an elevated listening experience with this circuit design.



The Kiwi Ears Forteza is equipped with a standard detachable cable featuring 0.78mm 2-pin connectors, providing users with the option for potential cable upgrades. This feature not only enhances the audio customization possibilities but also makes the maintenance of your Forteza effortless. Additionally, the audio cable is designed with a 3.5mm termination in the all-new Forteza model, ensuring compatibility with various audio devices. This practical inclusion adds versatility to the Forteza, allowing users to adapt and optimize their audio experience according to their preferences.
