OVERVIEW

STORM, short for Subtonic Opus Reference Monitor, is designed with a simple goal in mind: to recreate a studio main monitor experience in an in-ear monitor. STORM features deep reaching, yet clean bass that emulates subwoofers in a treated room, and features an incredibly detailed and accurate midrange complete with breathtaking treble reproduction.

Designed with 2 SLAM Woofers, 5 Balanced Armature (BA) Drivers and 2 Electrostatic (EST) Drivers in an incredibly complex true 7-way CTRL crossover, the STORM delivers unparalleled reference-class tonality and resolution that defies and redefines what “reference” means.

The experience of being seated in the middle of a mastering studio has now been made portable.

THE NEW REFERENCE.

Reference was never meant to be synonymous with “boring”.

STORM marries reference tonality with the jaw-dropping dynamics of the Subtonic SLAM woofers, reproducing the emotions and excitement that studio main monitors are capable of. A proprietary, phased filterless tweeter array projects a large and grand soundstage with stage-depth in a class of its own. The laser-like pinpoint imaging clearly defines the space between every instrument, allowing you to unpack the distinct layers of music as you smile and grin to the effortlessness of the STORM.

You’ll find yourself subconsciously feet-tapping and head-bobbing to the beat - because you will hear everything.

A CRAFTSMAN'S PRIDE

A CRAFTSMAN'S PRIDE

Titanium metal meets enamel paint to materialize golden clouds striked with black stripes. A lengthy process goes into hand-enameling the faceplates to obtain the radiant shine of the clouds. Any mistake - no matter how small - would mean that the hand-painting process has to be restarted, entirely from the top. Made possible only by the meticulous hands of Symphonium Audio.

Each STORM comes paired with the Mira, the flagship cable of Nightjar Acoustics. Made from 7N OCC copper with class-leading low impedance of 0.155Ω, Mira is painstakingly designed for a neutral yet spacious presentation. With its extremely low impedance and featuring an industry first shielding coverage of over 98%, Mira is designed for low noise and a pitch-black background that complements the reference nature of the STORM.

The Launch Edition STORM comes with a hand-stitched leather pouch crafted by TODAH atelier in Singapore. Premium full-grain Italian Veg-tanned Badalassi Carlo Pueblo leather was specifically chosen for its unique aging properties. As it takes on a patina that reflects your unique lifestyle, the leather significantly softens and reveals its olive undertones with a beautiful soft glow.
