Initial Sound Quality Impressions:-
So, the moment came for which, we have been waiting since we got the product, the moment to enjoy its sound, the moment to see how well a flagship IEM from Kinera sounds, the moment to experience the sound quality of a four-driver hybrid by Kinera.
We all know multi-driver hybrids are common but what makes the Kinera Nanna a special flagship device is the presence of two electrostatic drivers, which is the latest technology in terms of audio devices.
Electrostatic drivers are quite complex in their architecture, they are built to achieve a lower distortion rate, quicker and wider frequency response and a larger than life soundstage. The sound is quite rich and immersive, they are absolutely uncommon but the industry is definitely experimenting a lot with the electrostatic driver-based IEM's.
And Kinera has nailed it with their flagship Nanna.
And, the Kinera Nanna doesn't disappoint, it's just amazing, the sound of drums thumping in Digital Bath by Deftones, just outstanding, the guitar chords in Hotel California by Eagles, or Vocals in Animals were gone by Damien rice, everything felt so natural, So natural timbre of the instruments, so natural vocals, it feels like we are experiencing it all right in front of us, Thanks to the Neutral sounding nature of Kinera Nanna.
The Imaging, the detailing is just so perfect without any distortion, it feels like it was the IEM we have always wanted to get, just a lovely mesmerizing experience.
We loved the deep, thumpy bass where we felt the depth of each and every thump the drum was making, even we can notice depths in the piano being played in songs like the Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven, just brilliant detailing to every other instrument.
The tuning of four driver unit is just perfect and feels natural without any distortion, the pair has a wide soundstage, songs by Yosi Horikawa just feel amazing, this is the kind of IEM you can just put into your ear and just get lost in the details, in the music being played and just enjoy every single beat.
Overall the IEM sounds natural and balanced with good thumps at the lower end, brilliantly detailed lush vocals and smooth and detail-rich higher end with good extensions, providing good instrumental details even in quick songs like death metal songs by Death.
So, we had a brilliant time with Kinera Nanna, it is an amazing IEM with nicely tuned mids and thumping bass response, the IEM produces brilliant details at the higher end and produces good detailed sound.
The pair has good a very good build quality, and everything in the package plus the amazing sounding IEM's, just make this package worthy of a flagship tag, and makes the whole package worth every penny.
