Massdrop x NuForce EDC3 In-Ear Monitors

If you're going to use your gear every single day, it's worth upgrading to something that's built for the task. Yes, even your earphones. Whether you're gaming, listening to a podcast, or tuning out the world with the newest bop you can't get enough of, a pair of quality earphones can help open up a whole new level of enjoyment. Plus, they tend to feature better build quality, comfort, and usability for a better overall listening experience. NuForce and Massdrop collaborated on such a pair that was designed specifically for everyday carry, aptly named the EDC. They've teamed up again to bring you the EDC3 as an upgraded bigger brother to the original. It features much of the same great design that made the EDC such a success, but now offers three balanced armature drivers at a compelling $99.99 price point.

Before even getting into how they sound, it's worth noting all the little features on the EDC3 that tackle the challenges of EDCing a pair of earphones in the first place. For many of you, the biggest issue is probably dealing with wires. Cheap wires often tangle and fray, rendering the 'buds useless. The EDC3 comes with not one, but two removable cables depending on your needs. The first is a sturdy yet comfortably flexible braided cable for quality listening sessions, complete with a right angle 3.5mm plug to minimize stress and breakage, as well as built-in cable management for easy carrying. The other cable boasts in-line controls and a microphone to use with your smartphone. It's easy to carry the other cable as a backup even on the go thanks to an included hard zip pouch with an internal mesh pocket, too.

Like the original EDC, the EDC3 uses a durable Lexan polycarbonate to house its internals. The EDC3 housing is both lightweight and compact, making it comfortable to listen to all day. This time around, the entire body is a transluscent dark navy to showcase the arrangement of the EDC3's triple balanced armature drivers. They work together to provide a detailed, all-around experience that still leans towards musical than analytical thanks to its slightly warm sound, defined mids, and controlled bass.

Whether you're an EDC-minded audiophile or looking to finally upgrade your current pair of 'phones, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better value than these. It's not often you see triple balanced armature IEMs under $100. Get them before pre-orders close at the Massdrop link below.

Massdrop x NuForce EDC IEM

When you think of your go-to essentials, a pair of headphones might not be the first thing that comes to mind. But whether it’s for listening to a favorite album or catching up on a new podcast, EDCing a pair has its benefits. So when audio company Optoma NuForce teams up with the gear enthusiasts at Massdrop to release a pair of headphones, it's a match made in portable audio heaven. The Massdrop x NuForce EDC IEMs aren't the large, bulky over-ears that you might be picturing, but a super portable set of in-ear monitors designed with everyday carry in mind.

IEMs typically have better sound quality than the ‘buds that came with your smartphone, but they can get downright expensive. Fortunately, NuForce has earned a reputation for their quality audio gear at a value, and bringing Massdrop into the mix only helps the EDC IEM stay affordable yet feature-packed.

For example, the earbuds come equipped with a 6mm dynamic driver inside a hard plastic housing that's light enough to comfortably wear yet durable enough for the daily grind. Each earbud attaches to the cable via a two-pin connector that keeps them secure as you move while also letting you swap between the two included detachable cables. You'll get a standard cable for pure listening and one that's compatible with another essential EDC item—your smartphone. You can use it to answer calls or access your voice assistant without pulling your phone from your pocket thanks to its in-line controls.

Having the option to switch between cables doesn't just add versatility, it could save you some money, too. When you're especially hard on your gear and your cables fray or get lost, you can replace them for much less than what it'd cost to buy a new set of IEMs. With the included protective zip pouch, the EDC IEMs are even easier to carry and keep out of harm's way.

If you're still using the stock earbuds that came with your phone, it's about time for an upgrade. Check these out as an affordable pair of quality IEMs designed to be your daily driver over at the Massdrop link below.
