Our thorough and meticulous sound quality―finally perfected.
More than ten years in the making, our hand-crafted, made-in-Japan speaker unit with top sound quality is finally here! We are very excited to announce the MUSICLIFE ML-1, which reproduces in speaker form the spectacular, highly praised sound of our flagship headphones the SMB-02.
The MUSICLIFE ML-1, a stylish and high-grade compact sound system that gives new life to sound. Easy to operate and simple to install. Equipped with balanced input for professional use and versatile Bluetooth capability, The MUSICLIFE ML-1 is:
A full-range speaker unit with absolutely no crossover distortion.
An extremely high-resolution professional monitoring speaker.
A convenient Bluetooth speaker for music lovers.
“The product we always wanted”
Following repeated trial listening sessions to select the right combination of parts and materials, and using our own braided wires for internal wiring, MUSICLIFE offers supreme sound quality and serves up the pleasure of music beyond any level!
The full-range speakers (3-inch) use paper cone and neodymium magnet to transmit natural sound quality in high resolution. The shaved wood horn mechanism realizes a natural spreading of the sound. The amplifier delivers our commitment to high-quality sound with an original BTL (balanced transformer-less) schematic, frame-ground processing, and more.
Equipped with professional studio standard XLR balanced input (+4 dB) and consumer audio equipment standard LINE input (-10 dB), with an SW gain switch that enables level matching between connected devices (XLR / LINE combo jack). Also features the convenience of Bluetooth, with SBC and high sound-quality AAC as well as aptX correspondence.
Available in two colors: the beautiful mirror-finished “Woody Black Mirror” (WB); and “Sunburst” (SB), which tickles the heart of music lovers.
Comments from sound professionals who listened to our prototype:
Dave Robertson (Cameo Culture Music, Dangly Studios, Brooklyn, NYC): PHONON’s MUSICLIFE is the perfect reference tool in the studio when you want to shift from the NS 10 or the main reference monitor. It has the same shape as the boom box, but the fidelity of the sound is amazingly good. And the added Bluetooth function is very useful, no more cables!
