Muse 5 & Rio 3: True Wireless Earphones

Muse 5 & Rio 3

Erato Audio endeavors to create the best sounding true wireless audio products on the market. They do this without the unnecessary bells and whistle, committed to delivering a product you’ll love and also believe it will become an integral part of your everyday life. Erato Audio has announced their next generation of true wireless earphones for the first time on Indiegogo.

Both the Muse and Rio are designed to be completely wireless. You can enjoy high-performance audio without a wire in site. The headphones use Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) and aptX to bring out quality sound from your digital sources.

The Muse 5 was modeled after the award-winning Apollo 7 platform. It also incorporates some similar internal characteristics. A common issue with in-ear audio devices in the market today is the seal around the ear canal. That affects sound quality and bass response.


The patented FitSeal silicone sleeve creates a truly customized fit for most ear shapes and sizes. The silicone sleeve helps in optimizing sound quality. Traditional earphones offering only three sizes (S M L). But the Muse 5 can be customized into nine different combinations

FitSeal offers two key features: Comfortable fit and a superior seal. Having a quality seal decreases outside noise and increases bass response. By offering a variety of size combinations with FitSeal sleeve technology, they solve the fit issues usually seen with other earbuds.

Whether you have a small ear canal and large conch area or a large canal and smaller conch area, there is a solution for you. FitSeal sleeves allow the user to use a comfortable tip while securing the ear conch area with the right sleeve. This creates a quality seal to experience the harmonic music and bass Earto has designed for you.

The sleeve only needs to grab on to 2-3 corners of the ear, when put in place. The silicon will hold the earbud in place without falling out, even in extreme conditions. FitSeal eliminates the discomfort traditional earphones cause over a long period of use. Instead, the sleeve creates a natural seal on the outer ear while holding the earphones in place at the same time.

Digital Sound Processing Technology

Traditional stereo earphones create surround sound enabling you to hear the individual sound. But it does not allow you to evaluate the distance of each sound being emitted. Also, you can’t decide whether a specific sound is close or far. The digital sound processing technology can restore the spatial distance missing in traditional earphones. Erato Surround is calibrated with micro-driver and its acoustic chamber. It can reduce sound image distortion to create a more accurate soundstage. With this advanced audio technology, they deliver the same experience as heard inexpensive over the ear headphones for a fraction of the price.
