There are those who push boundaries and those who choose to ignore them altogether. The challenge: Create the highest-performing dual driver in-ear monitor ever. This was no easy task which is why we’ve employed two entirely different driver technologies, a class-leading 3-way synX crossover network, and A.R.C. anti-resonance technology to deliver the most performance possible.

The Empire Bravado redefines the entry level segment with class leading performance and technology.

Designer's Notes

“Pairing a single W9 subwoofer with a balanced armature counterpart, Empire Ears sets the tone for achieving perfect coherency between the best of both worlds: the naturalness of dynamic driven bass, complemented with the clarity and precision up top of a well-placed balanced armature. Designed for perfect neutrality, the Bravado's signature is intent on equality, providing perfect balance between the bass, midrange, and treble. Its entry-level position might be deceiving, for when it comes to performance the Bravado boldly holds its own; the precise imaging and separation one comes to expect from Empire Ears, yet at a friendlier cost.”

synX Crossover Technology

Source To Sound

With Empire’s proprietary synX crossover technology the Bravado achieves unparallel levels of accuracy and detail retrieval. 

How Do Crossovers Work?

Think of a crossover network as an audio traffic officer, directing highs to your tweeters, midrange to your speakers, and low bass to your subwoofers. This is essentially what a crossover does; it takes an input signal and splits it into separate audio bands. Could you imagine having 18 speakers, most of which are tweeters, with only 4 separate bands? It would cause a massive audio pile up, forcing the wrong speakers to reproduce the wrong frequencies constantly. We avoid all of this by utilizing specially designed drivers for designated frequency ranges and further maximizing their potential with our latest crossover technology.

Introducing synX

synX is a supercharged crossover design that designates more individual audio bands per driver than any other crossover technology currently in existence. By creating an ultra-wide, multi-channel highway our engineers can manipulate specific parts of the frequency range in order to precision craft the target response and eliminate any signs of phase incoherence between the drivers. Alternatively, mix engineers and audiophiles will have full control of the drivers when equalizing through a mixing console or digital audio player. synX is the industry’s most advanced IEM crossover technology with each model featuring its own uniquely designed synX network.

synX Advantages

synX powered in-ear monitors have remarkably high stereo separation and smooth phase response, leading to more dynamic realistic imaging and staging for both live and studio use. synX features a myriad of other advantages including:

Ultra-Wide Frequency Bandwidth:The Bravado produces a super-wide frequency range, offering listeners unparallel sound quality and details that bests even the most high-end headphones on the market.

Best Signal-to-Noise: In order to ensure that all of the industry-leading sound quality is heard in your ears we’ve worked to create a unique combination of handpicked resistors, electrolytic capacitors, and filters in order to ensure the cleanest signal path possible while offering an exceptionally low noise floor. 

Low Distortion: Extremely low distortion means that every nuance in your mix will be reproduced faithfully without audible artifacts. 

Maximum Signal Transfer: Every driver and crossover is individually wired and insulated with 7-strand, UPOCC Litz wires to eliminate acoustic feedback and further soldered with highly conductive, ultra pure silver and gold Mundorf Supreme for maximum signal transfer.

Hybrid Technology

*The Empire X series feature a combination of both proprietary balanced armature speakers and dynamic range subwoofers in order to deliver maximum clarity while achieving a powerful low end response. Each model is further tuned with a specially designed synX crossover network to achieve studio monitor levels of audio reproduction effortlessly and faithfully.

 Weapon IX

Weapon-9

After nearly 2 years of relentless R&D Empire is proud to announce the Weapon IX (W9), a proprietary 9mm rare-earth magnet subwoofer with the ability to deliver extreme output, accurate dynamics and sublime sound quality all at the same time. The keys to these performance capabilities lie at the very core of its design, where the woofer is enclosed in a tuned bass-reflex system with a front-firing sound port and rear-firing vent for maximum efficiency.

Conventional dynamic drivers and passive radiators (a speaker without the magnet and coil) often suffer in low octave frequencies and are heavily dependent on internal shell enclosures for volume, limiting form factor and vastly reducing efficiency with limited extension. The W9 is superior in its custom port tuned design, reaching frequencies even lower than its target response while mitigating distortion as the woofer isn’t required to move as far near resonance frequency.

Every W9 subwoofer is hand assembled to our exacting quality standards in our Norcross, Georgia laboratory.

Balanced Armature Drivers

Empire Ears Drivers Lineup

The Bravado utilizes a number proprietary balanced armature drivers by Knowles and Sonion, each one purpose built for a specific target response. Our drivers feature specialized reeds and low-mass diaphragms to reproduce incredible detailed, true-to-recording sound while remaining efficient enough to be powered by everyday devices.

Bespoke Handcrafted Cables

 Ares II Cable

Every Bravado in-ear monitor includes a bespoke, handcrafted Ares II cable by Effect Audio. The Ares II boasts a proprietary blend of 26 AWG UPOCC Litz copper with ultra-flexible insulation for maximum signal speed transmission, performance, and ergonomics. Each cable is terminated in an ultra durable 3.5mm, 24k gold plated right angle plug. 

Effect Audio’s extensive engineering and manufacturing background gives them the edge over all other cables. After extensive testing with numerous other cable manufacturers we’re proud to announce our official partnership with Effect Audio to bring you the finest cables in the industry and to ultimately defeat the weak link in IEMs.

A.R.C. Technology

Empire Ears ARC Effect

Balanced Armature (BA) drivers are vastly used in the IEM industry due to their small footprint and ultra efficient designs however they suffer from resonant behaviors that may cause peaks, unwanted vibrations, and distortion. To help mitigate this our drivers utilize Ferrofluid between the magnets and armature to provide a wide range of damping values, eliminating the need for a damping screen in the port tube. 

Despite this a secondary peak can still occur from the other components interacting with the BAs. Driver peaks can cause fatigue, distortion, and ultimately affect the way music sounds. We sought out to create a remedy for this and after years of relentless R&D we’re proud to announce A.R.C. (Anti-Resonance Compound), a proprietary coating that virtually eliminates unwanted vibrations and resonance from within IEMs. 

A.R.C. effectively increases the mass of the components it’s applied to: every driver, crossover, and sound tube. This gives the internals more solidity while serving as a dampener to absorb the unwanted resonance instead of reflecting them out of phase. With A.R.C. clarity is increased substantially, bass is deeper, and the IEM becomes more efficient overall.

รหัสสินค้า: EmpireEars – Empire Studio Reference (ESR) UIEM

฿40,400

With development processes culled straight from the studio, the Empire Studio Reference (ESR) was tuned specifically for discerning producers and engineers that require a non-colored, linear in-ear monitor for reference use.

The ESR features a powerful 4-way synX crossover network with 3 proprietary drivers to reproduce the sonic transparency and critical details needed for mixing and mastering.

The ESR is Empire’s flattest in-ear monitor and it delivers uncompromising dynamics, ultra-fast transient response, and wide dispersion for use in studios and on stage.

Designer's Notes

“Building forth on the all-round capabilities of Empire Ears' appraised Spartan, the ESR offers similar neutrality, with an improved tuning throughout the spectrum. Combining greater body to the sound with a pleasant touch of warmth results in a more engaging midrange, while further improved extension provides even greater resolution.

Accordingly, the ESR has evolved as the pinnacle of balance, providing one of the most linear signatures in Empire Ears' lineup. A bass that is neutral in quantity, but high in definition, and quick in pace; a smooth midrange that holds the line between forward and laid-back, and a precisely-tuned treble, delicately balancing between clear and smooth. But more than anything the ESR is a detail monster, offering the pinpoint precise imaging, clean separation, and high resolution of top-tier competitors, at a mid-tier price.”

EmpireEars – Empire Vocal Reference (EVR) UIEM

xxx แบรนด์: EMPIRE EARS

รหัสสินค้า: EmpireEars – Empire Vocal Reference (EVR) UIEM

฿32,600

Meticulously crafted from premium components, the Empire Vocal Reference (EVR) is exquisitely engineered to capture the detailed sonic nuance of critical studio and live stage performances. The EVR features separate low, mid, and high drivers to cover a wide frequency range while utilizing a sophisticated 3-way synX crossover network to inject each driver with clean power while eliminate phase incoherence.

The EVR boasts an amazingly tight, accurate sound with enormous dynamic range and unprecedented frequency response.

Designer's Notes

“Designed with vocalists in mind, the EVR combines the essential elements required to achieve a perfect vocal reproduction: a signature buttressed on a slightly forward midrange, topped off with powerful transparency. A vocal performance providing depth and power, while simultaneously staying in line with the rest of the band; after all, music remains the sum of its parts.


Accordingly, most of its tuning remains centered around a balanced signature: a relatively neutral quantity of its bass, and an instrument placement that is neither forward nor laid-back. Yet despite its thoroughly balanced signature, the EVR is a far cry from a clinical performance, condoning a subtle deviation from neutral to allow for a playful touch of sparkle in its treble; a musical element that not only brings clarity to its vocals, but breathes life into its instruments. Built for the spotlights, the EVR was made to shine.”

At long last the Legend has returned to the throne to push the limits of in-ear monitor performance to its highest point ever. Experience a world-class prestige IEM and a new era of uncompromising design and performance. From its arsenal of 7 proprietary drivers (including twin sequential W9 subwoofers) to its industry leading, state-of-the-art 10-way synX crossover network, the Legend X is the culmination of everything extraordinary we do at Empire.

Designer's Notes

“While neutral in tone and a balanced signature throughout, an addictive treble energizes the music, while simultaneously remaining smooth. But our greatest challenge yet was incorporating the low-reaching, impactful bass of the W9 subwoofers, with technical performance rivaling any in-ear monitor on the market; a challenge we can proudly proclaim we have overcome. Offering top-tier levels of transparency and separation, as well as one of the widest sound stages in the industry, our flagship has earned its position at the top of the lineup: a Legend is reborn.”

With Empire’s proprietary synX crossover technology the Legend achieves unparallel levels of accuracy and detail retrieval. 

How Do Crossovers Work?

Think of a crossover network as an audio traffic officer, directing highs to your tweeters, midrange to your speakers, and low bass to your subwoofers. This is essentially what a crossover does; it takes an input signal and splits it into separate audio bands. Could you imagine having 18 speakers, most of which are tweeters, with only 4 separate bands? It would cause a massive audio pile up, forcing the wrong speakers to reproduce the wrong frequencies constantly. We avoid all of this by utilizing specially designed drivers for designated frequency ranges and further maximizing their potential with our latest crossover technology.

Introducing synX

synX is a supercharged crossover design that designates more individual audio bands per driver than any other crossover technology currently in existence. By creating an ultra-wide, multi-channel highway our engineers can manipulate specific parts of the frequency range in order to precision craft the target response and eliminate any signs of phase incoherence between the drivers. Alternatively, mix engineers and audiophiles will have full control of the drivers when equalizing through a mixing console or digital audio player. synX is the industry’s most advanced IEM crossover technology with each model featuring its own uniquely designed synX network.

synX Advantages

synX powered in-ear monitors have remarkably high stereo separation and smooth phase response, leading to more dynamic realistic imaging and staging for both live and studio use. synX features a myriad of other advantages including:

Ultra-Wide Frequency Bandwidth: The Legend produces a super-wide frequency range, offering listeners unparalleled sound quality and details that bests even the most high-end headphones on the market. 

Best Signal-to-Noise: In order to ensure that all of the industry-leading sound quality is heard in your ears we’ve worked to create a unique combination of handpicked resistors, electrolytic capacitors, and filters in order to ensure the cleanest signal path possible while offering an exceptionally low noise floor. 

Low Distortion: Extremely low distortion means that every nuance in your mix will be reproduced faithfully without audible artifacts. 

Maximum Signal Transfer: Every driver and crossover is individually wired and insulated with 7-strand, UPOCC Litz wires to eliminate acoustic feedback and further soldered with highly conductive, ultra pure silver and gold Mundorf Supreme for maximum signal transfer.

Hybrid Technology

*The Empire X series feature a combination of both proprietary balanced armature speakers and dynamic range subwoofers in order to deliver maximum clarity while achieving a powerful low end response. Each model is further tuned with a specially designed synX crossover network to achieve studio monitor levels of audio reproduction effortlessly and faithfully.

 Weapon IX

Empire Ears Weapon 9 Illustration - In Ears

After nearly 2 years of relentless R&D Empire is proud to announce the Weapon IX (W9), a proprietary 9mm rare-earth magnet subwoofer with the ability to deliver extreme output, accurate dynamics and sublime sound quality all at the same time. The keys to these performance capabilities lie at the very core of its design, where the woofer is enclosed in a tuned bass-reflex system with a front-firing sound port and rear-firing vent for maximum efficiency.

Conventional dynamic drivers and passive radiators (a speaker without the magnet and coil) often suffer in low octave frequencies and are heavily dependent on internal shell enclosures for volume, limiting form factor and vastly reducing efficiency with limited extension. The W9 is superior in its custom port tuned design, reaching frequencies even lower than its target response while mitigating distortion as the woofer isn’t required to move as far near resonance frequency.

Every W9 subwoofer is hand assembled to our exacting quality standards in our Norcross, Georgia laboratory.

Balanced Armature Drivers

Empire Ears Driver Line Up - In-Ears

The Legend X utilizes a number proprietary balanced armature drivers by Knowles and Sonion, each one purpose built for a specific target response. Our drivers feature specialized reeds and low-mass diaphragms to reproduce incredible detailed, true-to-recording sound while remaining efficient enough to be powered by everyday devices.

Bespoke Handcrafted Cables

 Ares II Cable

Every Legend X in-ear monitor includes a bespoke, handcrafted Ares II cable by Effect Audio. The Ares II boasts a proprietary blend of 26 AWG UPOCC Litz copper with ultra-flexible insulation for maximum signal speed transmission, performance, and ergonomics. Each cable is terminated in an ultra durable 3.5mm, 24k gold plated right angle plug. 

Effect Audio’s extensive engineering and manufacturing background gives them the edge over all other cables. After extensive testing with numerous other cable manufacturers we’re proud to announce our official partnership with Effect Audio to bring you the finest cables in the industry and to ultimately defeat the weak link in IEMs.

A.R.C. Technology

ARC Technology

Balanced Armature (BA) drivers are vastly used in the IEM industry due to their small footprint and ultra efficient designs however they suffer from resonant behaviors that may cause peaks, unwanted vibrations, and distortion. To help mitigate this our drivers utilize Ferrofluid between the magnets and armature to provide a wide range of damping values, eliminating the need for a damping screen in the port tube. 

Despite this a secondary peak can still occur from the other components interacting with the BAs. Driver peaks can cause fatigue, distortion, and ultimately affect the way music sounds. We sought out to create a remedy for this and after years of relentless R&D we’re proud to announce A.R.C. (Anti-Resonance Compound), a proprietary coating that virtually eliminates unwanted vibrations and resonance from within IEMs. 

A.R.C. effectively increases the mass of the components it’s applied to: every driver, crossover, and sound tube. This gives the internals more solidity while serving as a dampener to absorb the unwanted resonance instead of reflecting them out of phase. With A.R.C. clarity is increased substantially, bass is deeper, and the IEM becomes more efficient overall.

รหัสสินค้า: EmpireEars – MTO Universal Spartan IV

฿31,900

The Spartan IV was passionately engineered to embody discipline, self-denial, and simplicity, in order to achieve a level of technical excellence that would tenaciously hold its own against other in-ear monitors with a higher driver count.

The Spartan IV possesses immense energy, making it an instant fist pumper with its tight bass, engaging mids, and obscenely clear treble. Detail retrieval and coherence is nothing short of superb as it handles everything thrown its way with ample competence via an advanced 4-way crossover network to rule all 4 drivers.





Musician's Spectrum

The Spartan IV is the most neutral in-ear monitor in the Olympus lineup. No one element of the frequency response stands out over the other, making it extremely versatile among all musicians. Headroom is vast, allowing you to hear yourself and others in the room without having to focus.

Bass is tight and deep, mids are even and engaging, and the treble is extended with ample air.

The Spartan IV is most popular among guitarists, vocalists, and sound engineers.

4 Balanced Armature Drivers

Advanced Transducer Design & Cutting Edge Components

The Spartan IV utilizes 4 proprietary balanced armature drivers, each individually tuned via our advanced crossover network in order to achieve maximum coherence and resolution. Each and every driver at Empire Ears is subject to strict quality control tests before we apply a patent-pending nano magnetic coating. This conformal coating not only resists moisture and other harmful contaminants but also optimizes performance by shielding each driver’s magnetic field to eliminate all interference.


Using only the most exceptional components the Spartan IV’s internals are individually wired and insulated with 7-strand, sapphire and gold, silver-plated copper Litz wires to eliminate acoustic feedback and further soldered with robust, ultra pure quad-eutectic for maximum conduction.

4-way Passive Crossover Network

Avant-Garde Crossover Network

The Spartan IV features a sophisticated 4-way crossover system that is tuned specifically to magnify performance from every driver. Unlike other in-ear monitor companies, Empire Ears does not use filters or dampers to manipulate the frequency curve. That method of tuning forces the drivers to operate outside of its intended frequency range, often duplicating too many of the same frequencies from numerous drivers. This means you’ll have to turn the volume up to hear what you want.


Our method of tuning allows the drivers to behave naturally as our crossover network is engineered to assign the proper frequencies and levels to the corresponding transducer. The end result is a crystal clear, full range frequency response that can be heard even at low volumes.

Triple Bore Design

Precision Ported Sound Bore
The Spartan IV features 3 precision ported sound bores. Each bore is engineered and hand ported in-house to our exacting clearances in order to achieve optimum phase alignment, consistent performance, and the truest sound possible every time.

Nemesis is crude and visceral, unwavering in its singular purpose: to overwhelm the auditory senses through the raw spirit and emotion of a live performance. Developing an in-ear monitor with the intensity of Nemesis required that every aspect be engineered to perform. Its heart beats with twin sequential W9 subwoofers, supercharged internally with Effect Audio’s UPOCC LITZ copper, to reproduce extraordinary bass both rich in air and volume followed by 3 additional drivers for natural vocals and precision highs.


Never has power and technology developed for professionals felt so at home in the studio and on stage. The Nemesis faithfully produces a live experience that can not only be heard, but felt.

Designer's Notes

“Nemesis represents Empire Ears' attempt to create the most realistic recreation of a live concert: soaring electric guitars, powerful vocals, but most of all: thunderous bass fueled by twin sequential W9 subwoofers. By subtly lifting the treble, the Nemesis maintains a powerfully clear image despite its richer low-end, ensuring a lively sound to match its low-end quantity. And combined with Empire Ears' trademark vocal naturalness, the Nemesis makes for a very full package”

The Phantom is the result of constant reinvention. The ambition to push for more. To go beyond the conventional. With precision crafted performance as the touchstone and innovation as its creed, new ways were created to engineer, design, and build a revolutionary in-monitor.
Introducing the Phantom: a pure IEM tuned in perfect balance – created and crafted to master every genre with absolute fidelity.

Designer's Notes

“The Phantom is Empire Ears bold assertion to challenge the status quo; a new take on a reference iem that performs at the highest level concerning both timbre and performance, rather than a compromise between either. Offering a sound befitting its name, the Phantom's sole mission is to disappear, and let the trueness of the music shine through. Besides industry-leading tonal accuracy, the Phantom promises both high resolution and transparency, with a versatile signature aimed to please both musical professional and audiophiles.

Building forth on Zeus' impressive vocal display and three-dimensional stage, the Phantom adds a touch of warmth to achieve its perfect timbre, as well as a smoother sound. A mission fulfilled by a beautiful lower treble, and excellent top-end extension. Finally, by relying on deep low-end extension and a tastefully lifted bass, the Phantom's bass makes a compelling argument when called upon, while equally taking a step back when required.”
