When Shure unveiled the KSE1500 Electrostatic Earphone System, audiophiles were amazed by the sound. Now there’s the KSE1200, an electrostatic system for discerning listeners who don’t require an integrated digital-to-analog converter (DAC).
Duplicating the engineering feat of fitting electrostatic technology into a highly portable package, the KSE1200 provides the same unrivaled accuracy, clarity and detail without the digital frontend of the KSE1500.
These days, many high-end dedicated digital audio players (DAPs) already incorporate high quality digital-to-analog conversion and clean-line output components. Users preferring the analog output of these devices can now enjoy the audiophile performance of an electrostatic amplifier and earphone combination with the KSE1200. Most common DAPs or smartphones will still benefit from the KSE1500 onboard DAC, EQ and amplification of audio signals.
Comparing the KSE1500 and KSE1200 Electrostatic Earphone Systems
Both systems have the same KSE1500 electrostatic, sound-isolating earphones.
Both systems use the same electrostatic amplifier technology.
The KSE1500 includes:
KSE1500 Electrostatic Amplifier with following functionality
The KSE1200 Includes:
KSE1500 Electrostatic Earphones
KSE1200 Electrostatic Amplifier with following functionality
Like the KSE1500, the KSE1200 system produces the absolute highest level of detail and isolation available in a portable design offering electrostatic sound at a more affordable price.
