Premium audiophile DAC

The heart of the Colibri is the flagship of the ESS line ES9281 PRO DAC. The ESS SABRE PRO series is for premium audiophile and sets a new benchmark in high-end audio by offering the highest dynamic range (DNR) with impressively low levels of total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD+N). Colibri supports Hi-Res PCM files up to 32bit/384kHz PCM, DoP, DSD64, DSD128 and MQA . In short, all in one solution.

Battery powered

Colibri has its own battery and will not consume the sound source battery. Battery power provides ultra-clean and stable DC current avoiding the issues of noise-inducing RFI/EMI pollution.

Let the music be with you

The most important feature of the device is its ability to provide clear and full-spectrum audio experience. Colibri uses the latest state-of-art hardware and software solutions in its construction, all of which come together to provide a natural and detailed listening experience.

The mid and high range frequencies beautifully complement the lowest tones, with consistent balance across all spectrums, resulting in a comprehensive sound image without the impression of any “missing” aspects of the music. The tones are displayed directly and without beautification, so whatever device you choose to use will be reflected accurately as intended by the designer.

EarMen Colibri shines through with excellent separation and pronounced stereo effect, while keeping all frequencies balanced during complex listening sessions.


Despite its size, the Colibri is designed to provide a powerful audio experience while featuring an attractive and streamlined physical appearance. Its high-resolution specifications will not only make your tunes sound phenomenal, but their modern style will also make them look pretty amazing.

Buttons on the side will provide you the full control of the device and music, without using your source or phone.

Behind the product

The world is constantly changing. It is in human evolutionary nature to always seek better and more. That's how we ourselves come up with ideas for all kinds of creations.

Traveling a lot and often, we all have a problem with charging our gadgets. True lovers of music do not want to give up their habits of listening to music everywhere and in every place. While enjoying the Sparrow during a trip, we had the idea that such a device should have its own battery and the ability to control the volume, as well as a balanced output.

We presented our ideas and suggestions from our customers to our engineers from R&D and soon we developed the first prototype of the device. It didn't take long for us to realize that this was the winner and to launch an improved version of Sparrow on "steroids", which was named Colibri.
