We partnered with Dunu and Precogvision to bring the Mirai to life.
In today's audio landscape, balanced tuning in in-ear monitors (IEMs) may seem ubiquitous. However, the Dunu Mirai takes a divergent approach. Synonymous with its name, Mirai is intended to encapsulate the type of sound that the market might be more open to in the future—except you get to hear it now.
While many IEMs strive for neutral benchmarking, the Mirai intentionally ventures into more colored waters. Despite these deliberate frequency alterations, it doesn’t compromise on tuning fundamentals, resulting in a sound that's both musical and tastefully executed.
The Mirai didn't come to fruition solely from the passion of one entity. This collaboration IEM, infused with the high standards of Precogvision, leverages the strengths of both DUNU and Headphones.com. While DUNU brings its rich history and technical prowess, Headphones.com offers its community-driven focus, product design insights, and industry knowledge. The result? An IEM that both parties are proud to present to audiophiles.
The Dunu x Precogvision Mirai In-Ear Headphones are more than just another pair of IEMs. They are a testament to what's possible when industry pioneers collaborate with the passionate audiophile community. Dive into the future of sound with the Mirai and experience a soundscape that's both forward-thinking and rooted in rich legacy.
Road to Mirai
Getting to the Mirai was a journey almost two years in the making. In the video on the right, Resolve interviews Theo Lee (Precogvision) about the Mirai project, the thought process behind the tuning and more. In the article below, you can read firsthand from Theo on the history of Mirai, the path that was taken with some behind the scenes snippets of early tuning, conversations and the end of the journey.Read our review
"Crafting the Dunu Mirai was a journey of passion and precision, merging future-forward sound with the legacy of audiophile craftsmanship."
Over-ear headphones sit over your ear and surround your ear with a ring of padding. On-ear headphones are padded but rest on top of your ear. In-ear monitors are worn inside your ear canal.
Speakers and headphones use a device called a 'driver' to create sound. Different types of drivers have different strengths and weaknesses, but can all produce great sound. Common varieties include dynamic, planar magnetic, and electrostatic.
Connectivity refers to the method in which the headphones connect to the audio source. Headphones can be either wired or wireless.
Vision Brought to Life
The essence of the Mirai lies in its distinctive sound. Familiar, yet distinct, its auditory profile is brought to life through meticulous adjustments to its base frequency response. The name "Mirai," reflecting a future-forward vision, encapsulates a sound profile that hints at what the future market may desire – and you have the privilege to experience it today.
Design and Sound Philosophy
Mirai's tuning strategy is unique and deliberate. By focusing on a gentler upper-midrange combined with an amplified bass, the earphones avoid auditory harshness. Yet, they retain a rich treble sparkle and intricate internal detail. This balance between contrasting sound elements becomes possible due to a specialized tweeter design that effectively handles sound pressures above 10kHz.
The Magic Behind the Sound
The real charm of the Mirai lies in its nuanced transition from the upper-midrange to the treble. Defying conventional tuning norms, the Mirai reduces the presence in the 3-4kHz range while introducing distinct peaks in the treble, especially around 10kHz and 15kHz. These specific frequencies play a pivotal role in enhancing the imaging performance of the IEMs.
Distinct Yet Fundamental
The Mirai's sound profile might seem avant-garde, but it remains rooted in essential auditory fundamentals. It's an adventurous deviation from typical tunings, curated for those listeners who seek a refreshing change from the commonplace. As a result, Mirai offers a unique sonic journey that's both familiar and novel.
