Empire Ears ESR II UIEM
The ESR II (Empire Studio Reference) reasserts itself as the king of neutrality at Empire Ears, but at no point is the presentation of this five-driver electrostatic hybrid sterile. A beautiful 'Brushed Silver' faceplate gives hint to its polished finesse.
A good dose of sweetness in the mid-range keeps your music ever engaging. And monitoring professionals will appreciate the immense dynamic range headroom this balanced armature and electrostatic hybrid initially keeps hidden, before effortlessly producing it when you need it.
ESR II impressed Headfonia so deeply, it went right onto their Recommended Buy list as "an extremely smooth and balanced IEM you can listen to all day without any fatigue". Headfonics rate it as the best value-to-performance offering from Empire Ears to date.
Ask for the Inspire cable from Nobunaga Labs when you audition ESR II, to unlock new doses of bass excitement and vocal emphasis. ESR II can also be bought in custom (CIEM) form. Also check out the rest of the Empire Ears range here, or view our other IEMs here.
