Empire Ears ERS MKII Review

"It's one of the best tunings I've come across. "

"It's the same thing as studio reference monitors. They have a linear presentation, but you actually enjoy certain reference speaker models. The ESR MKII is exactly like that. It has a flat response, but you still find yourself enjoying it. And because it's an extremely smooth and balanced IEM, you can listen to it all day without any fatigue. It just flows through. No distractions, nothing overdone. "

"It's one of the best tunings I've come across. And the price? Well, it's not crazy expensive money in today's IEM market, so I think it actually has great value. As a result, I recommend the Empire Ears ESR MKII as a great reference monitor. If you're looking for a true-sounding IEM and had enough of the V-Shaped, fun-oriented gear, this might be your best bet at this point. "
