Empire Ears Introduces New MKII Lineup

Empire Ears is always looking to break new ground in the world of IEMs. The MKII series is a way of testing the waters in search to discover their new flagship product. They have now revealed which models are getting the MKII treatment, the Bravado, ESR, and Valkyrie.

Bravado MKII

The newest addition to Bravado is the upgraded dynamic subwoofer which adds dual EST drivers and Empire’s EIVEC system to bring a nuanced and layered presentation that heightens the listening experience to new levels of musicality and analytical enjoyment. The Bravado also features new artwork, featuring a livery, adorned with a suspended metallic glitter faceplate – called Deep Field – that, like the sound signature of the Bravado MKII itself, toes the line between subtle and bombastic.

Valkyrie MKII

The Valkyrie is the only model out of the three that doesn’t have a redesigned faceplate, and can you blame them? Besides that, the MKII brings the same exciting and engrossing sound signature with a touch more maturity and control. The upgraded Weapon IX+ subwoofer reaches lower, tighter, and Empire’s all-new implementation of EIVEC brings the EST driver and the treble frequencies into play with the smoothness of aged whiskey.
