In a market dominated by big brands like Bose, Sennheiser, and Beats the true Indian made company Pristine Note’s Signature Acoustics made a decent entry into the market with Elements Wooden IEM. The company has worked over 18 months to craft an awesome piece of natural timber and acoustic powered IEM.
Build & Design
The Signature Acoustics C-12 come in a normal black colored paper box, when you look inside you’ll find the heavy Brass case and earphones. Actually, the product comes in a leather case, for the brass case you need to spend few dollars more. The ear tips (S, M and Large) and the clip are packaged in a brass box. The IEM is decently packaged below the sponge.
Though they are very small, very light weighted and actually found them quite comfortable. It uses a black and wood color scheme, the logo of Signature Acoustics clearly visible on the back side of the earpiece. Proprietary Pristine Note provides a new level of listening pleasure for your ears.
When it comes to cable, they have taken special interest to construct. The 48-inch non-removable cable connects at the base of each earpiece. The cable is constructed from multiple strands of copper for better bass response. You can feel the twisting nature when you touch the cable. Cable is covered with stiff rubber coating and tough enough to bend in any angle.
On our first night of testing, we wore the SA C-12 for four hours, this Signature earphones are very lightweight and extremely comfy as they make contact. The earphones can connect to your PC, Laptop, PS4, Smartphones, and Tablets comfortably.
Signature Acoustics C-12 is company’s first IEM. It delivers light low-end response and best highs without crushing mid-range. I personally tested on my iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Nexus 5, Blackberry 8520 and Apple iPod Shuffle.
The result is a pleasant listening experience that lets the music steal the show. The clarity and depth are at good level, we listened to some best charts in the world. As a fan of rock music, I loved listening songs with Signature Acoustics C-12. I also tried some random Bollywood and Sufi songs, the quality of music upto the mark. In some songs, I feel extra sharpness is coming from earphones, but overall it is good. This can sound good for some modern, bass-heavy, rock and electronic mixes.
