EmpireEars – MTO Universal Spartan IV

Brand: EMPIRE EARS

Product Code: 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.

EmpireEars – Nemesis

Brand: EMPIRE EARS

Product Code: EmpireEars – Nemesis

฿64,900

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”

synX Crossover Technology

Sound To Source Diagram - Empire Ears In-Ear Monitors

With Empire’s proprietary synX crossover technology the Nemesis achieves unparalleled 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 Nemesis 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

Empire Ears Weapon 9 Technical Illustration

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

The Nemesis 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 Nemesis 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.

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.”

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 PHANTOM 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.

Balanced Armature Drivers

The PHANTOM 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 PHANTOM 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.

The Zeus-XIV is an engineering marvel that was designed specifically to achieve new benchmarks in detail retrieval and resolution. Tuned for a more mid-centric signature, the Zeus-XIV has much more lush and full mids when compared to its R counterpart. Headroom is similar to that of a studio.

Designed and made for the most discerning musician, artist, engineer, and audiophile.

14 Balanced Armature Drivers

7-way Passive Crossover Network

Avant-Garde Crossover Network

The Zeus features a state-of-the-art 7-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.

Quad Bore Design

Precision Ported Sound Bore
The Zeus XIV features 4 precision ported sound bore. 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.

If you send us molds that are not up to our standards, it may necessitate a refit and could subject you to additional fees. 

Rush orders are available for $300 additional fee. Estimated build time is 7-10 business days from the date we receive your ear impressions.

What Reviewers Are Saying

“[T]he Valkyrie, which in my opinion sits very comfortably in EE's range. It's their tri-hybrid (DD/BA/EST) IEM, that really performs at superb levels.
The W9 dynamic driver certainly knows how to punch with physicality and authority. The Valkyrie has impressive speed, texture and resolution throughout the entire frequency range. It's detailed, rich and freakishly engaging. From first listen it reminded me of the Legend X, but with a slightly more tamed low end. It has an exciting sound that just gets you going."

& Comparing Valkyrie to Phantom:

"Phantom is a lot thicker and denser. It also has very good, but different, bass. The Valkyrie just pushes harder and has more drive. It is more of a fist bumping IEM compared to the Phantom that's more a soothing monitor to me. Valkyrie also has a more agile top end. Valkyrie's vocals are also lighter and airier."

Empire Ears EIVEC - Empire Intelligent Variable Electrostatic Control

Valkyrie owes much of its energy and impact on the listener to Empire's newest technology, EIVEC, Empire Intelligent Variable Electrostatic Control. Through EIVEC we've managed to bring the three separate driver technologies into perfect harmony. Electrostatic drivers have remarkable capabilities but have a tendency to drown out their dynamic and balanced armature counterparts. Using EIVEC, the EST in Valkyrie delivers a crisp and detailed high end that blends seamlessly with the rest of the sound profile of tight, rich and natural lows from the Weapon IX dynamic subwoofer and lush mids from the balanced armature driver.

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 Technology

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.

W9

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

Proprietary Drivers

Drivers

The Valkyrie 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.

Furthermore each Empire driver utilizes a NASA-born ferromagnetic liquid technology, Ferrofluid, to dampen acoustics peaks and reduce vibrations in combination with our A.R.C. technology. The end result is extraordinary clarity and increased shock durability.
