This special combo includes the following items:


Acoustic Research AR-H1 x 1
Elemental Sherlock Tube Amplifier x 1


  • The new AR-H1, which was previewed at audio enthusiast events including High End 2017 in Munich, Germany, and Potafes in Tokyo, Japan, represents a new standard in headphone performance for the price-point by incorporating planar technology -- which is acclaimed for achieving detailed output with drastically reduced distortion compared to other technologies -- with an open-back circumaural, or over-ear design for exceptional comfort and sound quality.

    The new AR-H1, which was previewed at audio enthusiast events including High End 2017 in Munich, Germany, and Potafes in Tokyo, Japan, represents a new standard in headphone performance for the price-point by incorporating planar technology -- which is acclaimed for achieving detailed output with drastically reduced distortion compared to other technologies -- with an open-back circumaural, or over-ear design for exceptional comfort and sound quality.

    Featuring an industrial design that is both appealing and comfortable, the AR-H1 gives music lovers an unbeatable listening experience, thanks to the 86mm planar driver with a neodymium magnet array that is considered among the best in its class. Frequency response is measured at 10-70kHz, with sensitivity rated at 100dB/V, and impedance at 33 ohms.

    A true hi-resolution headphone should be as comfortable as it is sonically pleasing, which is why the AR-H1 features as a genuine leather headband and low resilience ear cushion that add up to hours of listening with no fatigue.

    The AR-H1 comes complete with essential accessories, including a 1.2m audio cable (3.5mm 3-pole to dual 2.5mm 2-pole), a 6.3mm plug adapter, and a soft pouch for easy storage and portability.




  • Following the tradition of Elemental Amps, Sherlock is designed for a no-compromise performance at a very affordable price. During the design process, we took further steps to make Sherlock modular and expandable, from a stereo amp to a fully balanced amplifier. We are pleased that we succeeded in producing the Sherlock with unprecedented driving capability and musicality at a very cost-effective price point. 

    To reach this goal, we trimmed all the unnecessary features and cosmetics. We then focused on Sherlock’s core competence - the amplification. The kernel of Sherlock is a class-A tube gain stage that dominates the sound quality with the tube's unique signature. This is followed by a single-ended class-A MOSFET power stage to provide plenty of current for demanding headphones. 

    Sherlock’s uniqueness is the added bridged circuits ahead of the main amp. These circuits when activated converts input signals into balanced (positive plus negative polarities) format and feeds to the left and right channels. This special design feature turns a tandem pair of Sherlock into a truly stereo balanced amplifier. 

    Sherlock is the first bridgeable headphone amplifier and audiophiles can enjoy the single chassis first and subsequently upgrade to double chassis for balanced performance. The audiophile with its numerous headphone collection will find Sherlock to be a timeless investment.
