Eidolic Premier 2 pin CIEM plugs – SILVER BARREL ONLY – TeCu/PEEK/Gold/Locking Barrel
Eidolic Premier 2-pin CIEM Connector
Silver barrel/white logo only at this time. Gunmetal barrels back in stock Summer 2020.
Eidolic IEM connectors are the new industry standard for durable, functional, and beautiful IEM cables. Featuring a complete re-engineering of the popular IEM connection types, Eidolic has solved the durability and fit issues that have plagued the hobbyist-grade connectors currently being sold, while allowing anyone to build enduring, truly custom cables for most in-ear monitors. Eidolic now offers a true flagship 2-pin plug, with the best possible insulators, platings, and contact material, plus an industry-best barrel locking method. Unique styling marks this plug as the completed evolution of the IEM connector.
Please note – the best pin material available for 2 pin IEM plugs is tellurium copper – it is durable and very close to pure copper’s conductivity, while being stiff enough to be inserted into an insulator via press-fitting during manufacturing. Connector factories readily explain why pure copper is unusable when asked – this is indisputable. Anyone advertising pure copper is simply leaving off “tellurium” to mislead customers into believing they have something better.
With 0.78mm pins, this model fits the vast majority of IEMs – past, present, and future – including extruded, recessed, angled, and flush sockets, with excellent ergonomics in all cases. The limited few exceptions are UE TF10 and Spiral Ears Pro which require unique plugs. The 2 pin plugs are a perfect fit for your Noble, JH, UE, 1964Ears, and much more.
ELS is superior to a threaded connector, where the threads are so fine that it is easy to misalign the barrel & contact piece and strip the threads – this design is prone to failure. ELS avoids the use of tiny set-screws which require that the screw holes be aligned, as well as the orienting and turning of a screw with every installation. There is no easier solution to barrel retention than ELS.
The barrel will always click to the contact piece with very minimal force. If it is not coming together, you are putting it together off-center. If you absolutely must take the plug apart, grip the rectangular part of the insulator with small pliers, hold the metal barrel in your other hand, and pull very hard. This may, if you are lucky, eject the locking ring. The locking ring can then be put back on the insulator with the beveled side (look very closely) facing down towards the solder contacts, or it can be disposed of and the plug can be superglued together like the original Eidolic 2 pin plug. Simply use pliers to pinch the ring back into place – it is very durable and we have taken this plug apart and reassembled it plenty of times without serious damage. If you do not want to use the locking ring for whatever reason, simply rip it off with tweezers and glue the plug together as with conventional IEM plugs.
Superior conductivity. The materials we have chosen for the connectors’ contact pins are both durable and highly conductive, reducing the incidence of snapped pins disabling your cables and IEMs, a significant problem that Eidolic has endeavored to solve. The specific choice – tellurium copper – is 93% as conductive as pure copper, while being a strong and machinable metal suitable for audio connectors, far exceeding the 20-30% conductivity rating of brass, steel, or bronze. Years of titrating the exact right pin dimensions yields a pin that is neither too thick for brand new IEMs, nor too loose on older, more worn IEM sockets.
Upgrade to titanium.
Bringing the brilliant functionality of the Eidolic E-STB titanium modular barrels to the tiny scale of CIEM/MMCX, the E-STBC features a three piece titanium design that retains the click-lock functionality of the Premier Eidolic IEM series while allowing modular customization. The upper and lower parts of the barrel thread together, securing a contrasting high polish aluminum insert in place. The Eidolic logo is laser-engraved, the barrel is circular-polished, and the edges are chamfer polished. Complete the ultimate titanium cable with E-STBC and Eidolic’s matching slider, splitter, and amp-end barrels.
