The Empire Ears Phantom In-Ear Monitor Headphones are an excellent jack-of-all trades IEM. They are tuned with perfect balance meaning they can handle any genre you throw at them. The Phantom builds on the old Empire Ears Zeus model and is a reference IEM with a slight touch of warmth to deliver an even better timbre and a silky smooth sound. The Phantom was tuned for both musicians and audiophiles alike and because of that, it has a very versatile sound signature that is universally pleasing.
synX Crossover Technology
Ultra-Wide Frequency Bandwidth
The Legend X produces a super-wide frequency range, offering listeners unparallel sound quality and details that bests even the most high-end headphones on the market.
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.
Extremely low distortion means that every nuance in your mix will be reproduced faithfully without audible artifacts.
Maximum Input Distortion
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.
5 Proprietary Balance Armature Drivers
The Empire Ears Phantom contains 5 proprietary balanced drivers in each side. Consisting of 2 Low drivers, 1 Mid Driver, 1 High Driver and 1 Super High driver, the drivers by Knowles and Sonion are all built to target a specific target response. The 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 their A.R.C. technology. The end result is extraordinary clarity and increased shock durability.
Bespoke Handcrafted Cables
Every Empire Ears 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 Oyaide gold plated right angle plug. However, the option for either 2.5mm or 4.4mm terminations are also available at no additional charge.
