The Bravado MKII is the next generation of the Bravado and is the sequel to one of our best selling IEMs. At its core is a substantially upgraded 4 driver tribrid configuration designed to exude the same u-shaped fighting spirit as its predecessor while addressing the growing need for even more dynamic range, detail retrieval and soundstage. All of this is made possible with the most advanced IEM technology currently available: a next generation W9+ subwoofer, a proprietary balanced armature driver and dual electrostatics divided 6-ways via a reengineered synX crossover network backed by EIVEC and ARC resonance mitigation technology.
The Bravado MKII embodies our relentless quest to push the limits of design and performance to a new extreme. With bolder styling, more technology and performance than ever before the Bravado MKII takes its class-obliterating heritage to unprecedented heights.
“Bass is the star of the Bravado MKII tuning. It goes down deep with an elevated sub-bass rumble, powerful visceral mid-bass impact with above average speed and surprisingly well controlled decay which gives you a clean separation from the lower mids. The soundstage is above average, wide enough, but I do find more depth and height in comparison to width. The imaging is convincing within limits of above average soundstage. It is still LX Jr in my book, but with less bass and smoother treble.
Regardless of some other multi-kilobuck birds I have been listening to lately, I still enjoy Bravado MKII very much, like a guilty-pleasure bass snack! For me personally, in the last few weeks Bravado MKII became my Every Day BASS Carry IEM.”
Bravado Mk II features a fully upgraded quad-driver tribrid configuration at its core, offering up the same u-shaped EQ curve as the Mk I version which also tackling wider dynamic range, improved detail and an even more impressive soundstage.
This is made possible by utilising Empire Ears latest developments in proprietary driver technology, including next gen W9+ subwoofers and balanced armature drivers.
Also under the hood are dual electrostatics divided no fewer than 6 ways across Empire Ears’ fully re engineered synX network. The crossover is then backed up by EIVEC and ARC resonance mitigation technology to achieve the flawless presentation to which EE listeners have become accustomed.
With improved performance, reimagined design and even bolder styling, Bravado Mk II is destined to make a splash with fans of Empire Ears and high-quality listening alike.
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 Bravado MKII produces a super-wide frequency range, offering listeners unparalleled 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.
