AURE Flame IEM

Tour: Aure Audio Elixir, Flame IEM Tour

Two Interesting TOTL Hybrid IEMs from a New Taiwanese Brand

November 2020

Aure Audio Gear Discussed in this Tour can be found Here: https://www.hifi-portable.com/en/home/130-aure-audio-elixir-new-hybrid-flagship.html

In preparation for another tour, my sponsor introduced me to another Taiwanese IEM manufacturer that is new to me by sending a pair of their flagship hybrid IEMs to audition. 

TBD

The Aure Audio Tour Kit

We have arranged to put the audition package I received on tour to get your opinions. 

Tour Kit

Our tour kit features two hybrid TOTL IEMs from the Aure brand. While I don’t have a lot of information about them, here is what I have below:

  • Elixir ($1990): Per Manufacturer – “The Elixir is on a par with the best hybrids on the market, surpassing most of them on the treble and the coherence of the soundstage. With the Elixir, you get something that is at the level of the 64 Audio Nio but with much more extension in the treble, better resolution, better sense of space  and better balance. In short, the Elixir could easily be put between the Fourté and the Fourté Noir.”
    • Configuration: 1 DD Bass / Large spectrum, 1 B.A mids, 1 B.A high mids – high, 1 B.A high – super high, 4 ways – 3 bores.

    • Tech: M.V.S technology (Multiple Vent System) for a huge dynamic without eardrums pressure

    • Fit: Semi-Custom Style Shell for a perfect fit.

  • Flame ($1990): TBD

Barra’s Quick Initial Impressions

The best part of managing tours is getting to hear all the great gear for myself. Here are some brief impressions from what I have heard so far between the tasks required to set up this tour:

  • Elixir: TBD
  • Flame: TBD

Overall: TBD

Rules and Responsibilities

Most of our tours are offering 7-day auditions which you are required to ship out to the next participant on day 8. Yes, you pay the shipping to the next participant, but we organize into logistically friendly orders to minimize the shipping expense.

The tour membership rules and responsibilities are described here. The key idea is that we must be communicative to participate and to keep the tour moving and interesting. It is our responsibility to follow these rules and to ensure the ability to ship out on day 8 when our turn is over.

Signing up for the Tour

To sign up for the tour, you must be a verified tour member and have joined our new AUDIOTIERs platform. The membership qualifications and requirements are described here if you are not already a member. Whether a HEADFI tour member that needs to transfer their membership to the new platform or you are a new member looking to apply for tour membership, please follow the instructions in the GETTING STARTED box below. We are now accepting applications from both US and Canadian citizens.

Tour Signups for Verified Members: If you would like to be part of this tour, please feel free to post your request in the comments below.

Reviewers First Tour: This is a REVIEWERS GO FIRST TOUR, so if you would like to skip to the front of the line, please note that you would like to be a full reviewer in the request as in the sample below:

Sample Signup Request: I live in Anthem, AZ and would like to participate in the tour. I agree to follow the terms of the tour. I have emailed my required ID verification documentation to billb@AudioTiers.com. AS A FULL REVIEWER, PLEASE MOVE ME TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE.

Tour Participant Logistics

We have two tour kits to minimize wait and are offering 7-days auditions to each participant. This logistics list is updated as I can to show you were we are in the order with each participant bolded to signify that they received the kit. This is where you will find the next two participants to contact when you receive the kit.

Signup Period: During our signup period, we collect the initial participants and provide them with a logistically friendly portion of the tour. This is the lowest cost portion in terms of shipping. Once this closes, we move to the latecomer portion.

Latecomer Period: Latecomers are welcome to the tour on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will continue taking latecomer requests until we run out of participants or the manufacturer asks us to end the tour.

Potential Canadian Tour

We are checking participation levels for Canadian tour members. If we get 8 requests, we will move to extend our tour to Canada. If we get 16 requests, we will ask for an additional tour kit to start an additional tour right away. Again, Aure Audio will have to agree, but this should not be an issue if we get the numbers.
