Work faster, for longer

For applications calling for extraordinary imaging, extended frequency response, short to medium listening distance or long, fatigue-free working hours, The Ones are in an elite league of their own. They promote faster and more consistent decision making, and they also extend listening time, because unnatural imaging - a main contributor to listener fatigue - is minimised.

Mixes that translate

The smallest in The Ones series, the 8331A is perfect for small rooms or ultra-nearfield applications, and offers an outstanding solution where none existed before. And in conjunction with our GLM calibration software, the 8331A will compensate for detrimental room acoustics and distance delay, regardless of whether you work in mono, stereo or immersive formats. So now you can deliver mixes that translate beautifully - every time.
