Empire Ear Hero - no compromises
Hero is relentless, fierce, and apologizing for nothing - a repudiation of rules, prejudice, and everything expected of him. It represents a tour de force of Empire's expertise and craftsmanship, elevating the presentation of musicality to a level unheard of in its class. With DNA straight from Legend X and Zeus XIV, Hero is a nod to our past to emulate flagship performance levels without paying a flagship price.
Hero's heart is a proprietary quad hybrid configuration consisting of proprietary triple balanced armatures and a next-generation W9+ subwoofer. This robust combination produces legendary bass response while delivering rich, intimate vocals and superior detail reproduction via a 4-way SynX crossover network powered by ARC resonance reduction technology.
Every element of the Hero is a throwback to our history and embodies our relentless quest to push the boundaries of what is possible. Its ingenious design, proprietary technology and exceptional audio reproduction capabilities make it a class-leading masterpiece.
"The Empire Ears Hero is a bit of a welcome tonic to the miserable year that is 2020. This is an honest to goodness V-shaped tub-thumping presentation, heavy on the sub-bass rumble and matching treble energy."
"The Hero is a monitor that satisfies on many levels. Personally, I enjoy his vocal performance the most and it makes listening to French genres and female singers, like Edith Piaf, Nina Simone or Björk, a pure pleasure. Hero offers a whole lot and shows that a mid-tier priced monitor doesn't mean automatically big cuts in performance to bigger guns.
I wholeheartedly recommend the Hero to anyone who wants a touch of Zeus XIV coupled with the goodness of Empire's Weapon 9+ dynamic drivers. Vocal and mid-range lovers take note, this one is a must to audition."
"I believe the Hero achieves exactly what it sets out to do, give you a flagship quality sound for a more reasonable price. I think the Hero is as close to this quality as a non-flagship is going to get for most brands.If you've been dying to try Empire Ears for a while but want to save a little bit of extra cash, the Hero will definitely satisfy. "
"Empire Strikes Back Pt 1.: The HERO"
"Engaging, detailed, fun sound with a lot of punch"
"Likeable tuning, Shell is one of the most comfortable I've used, Bass impact is pleasant without getting bloated, Mids are intimate and engaging, Treble has enough shine to make me notice them. PRICE to performance is at the peak here."
