ZERO is a number that represents the reference point, and it also means the beginning.

AK ZERO1 is a new start for Astell&Kern and aims to be the new standard for In-Ear Monitors.

The Hybrid IEM with each driver's AK sound harmoniously distributed

Hybrid IEM AK ZERO1 focuses on combining the sounds of three unique driver technologies into one.

Composed of a Micro Rectangular Planar Dynamic Driver, two BA drivers, and a 5.6 mm Dynamic Driver, the AK ZERO1 harmonizes the characteristics of each driver to deliver the most natural sound to your ears.

An ideal frequency response was created through the Cross Over Network, which is designed based on a thorough understanding of each driver’s parameters. At the same time, each driver is carefully placed in the optimal 3D position, enclosed in specifically designed acoustic chambers manufactured with precise 3D printing technology.

By implementing this, A&K eliminated unnecessary movement and resonance of the drivers to ensure stable performance.

Internal Structure

  • The Micro Rectangular Planar Dynamic Driver is a specially developed driver with highly advanced technology that allows a planar driver, normally a very difficult driver to scale down, to be applied to in-ear monitors.
  • Two BA drivers are made using customer coil parameters and offer crystal-clear vocals with super-low distortion.
  • The 5.6 mm Dynamic Driver has been created through a fully automated, error-free process, ensuring rich, controlled, and deep low frequencies.

Hi-Fi Grade Pure Silver-Coated OFC Cable 4 Core (3.5mm Plug)

The Pure Silver-Coated OFC cable maximizes the performance of the Hybrid IEM AK ZERO1. It has been exquisitely crafted with high-purity silver plating and copper, and the aluminum plugs give it even more class

The MMCX connector provides the best quality, offering long-lasting stable performance.

Made in Japan

The Hybrid IEM AK ZERO1 is meticulously assembled by highly experienced engineers and manufactured through stringent processes to the highest of tolerances in Japan with excellent facilities achieving the highest quality possible.


AK ZERO1's premium sound will open a whole new world that you have never experienced before, elevating you beyond the boundaries of sound. This is symbolized by the bold diagonal line that crosses the product, reflecting the identity of the AK ZERO1. "The Boundary to a New World” This key phrase encompasses the design of the AK ZERO1.

The cut surface created by the character line of the AK ZERO1 shimmers in the light, emphasizing the premium quality of the product. The shape of the AK ZERO1 has been carefully designed and refined along the inner ear canal to fit your ears perfectly. Light bounces off each surface, making the earpieces glisten like jewelry.
