First of all, I would like to thank Rob, over at RedGiant for sending me the A03’s for review! Thanks Rob!
The RedGiant A03 Ossicle, also known as the A03, is a dual dynamic earphone, which means 2 dynamic drivers in each ear (8mm & 14.3mm drivers) – You can read more about it, and some of the other specs, over on their website.
I have to say that the A03 really impressed me at first listen, and still ceases to amaze me. That said, it’s sound signature isn’t for everyone and some might even have some fit problems.
So, let’s see how well it fairs!
