Empire Ears Reveal Legend EVO Dual-Conduction IEM

The popular manufacturer of high-end IEMs is back with an innovative new model. Empire Ears’ in-house skilled craftsmanship and decades of experience have allowed them to pioneer a dual conduction architecture and 8 driver tribrid system. With this new technology, the Legend EVO sets out to create a new benchmark in the industry.

Air conduction utilizes all 3 as sound is collected by the outer ear and directed along the ear canal into the eardrum, vibrating the bones of hearing (ossicles) in the middle ear to stimulate the hair cells inside of your cochlea in the inner ear. This stimulation creates electrical nerve impulses which are then carried to the brain by the auditory nerve to be converted into sound.

Bone conduction completely bypasses the outer and middle ear components by sending vibrations directly through the skull to stimulate the hair cells inside of your cochlea. Through bone conduction, we can perceive ultrasonic hearing (beyond 20kHz) Bone conduction is generally perceived to have a lower, deeper tone because the skull conducts lower frequencies more efficiently than air.

DUAL CONDUCTION ARCHITECTURE

The Legend EVO fully exploits the best of both worlds with its pioneering Dual Conduction Architecture. A full range 5Hz-20kHz frequency response is delivered via air conduction from the dual W9+ subwoofers and 5 balanced armatures while imaging, soundstage, detail retrieval, low-frequency extension, and reverb is extraordinarily enhanced from 5Hz-35kHz via bone conduction from the W10.
