Odin the father of gods - unmatched sound through perfect tuning
The universe needs icons. Those extraordinary few who stand out from everyone else. In-ear headphones that stand for themselves - so outstanding that they were named after the god of wisdom, poetry, death, prophecy and magic. Odin has arrived. Its beauty leaves no room for doubt. Its power cannot be argued away.
Undoubtedly, Odin is at the top of the Empire Ears line as our most iconic flagship among in-ear headphones.
"The Odin is a monster of a monitor with world-class technical capability as well as an explosive and engaging tuning. Best universal I have reviewed in 2020 overall. ”
Marcus Downey, Headfonics.com
"The Odin can do almost everything. It has a vast potential for dynamic range reproduction like no other IEM can. The clarity and resolution are unmatched and makes for one of the best IEMs Empire Ears have released yet. For $ 3,399 it better sound great, that's for sure. If you're willing to cash in on these bad boys, you'll be more than satisfied. " Alex Schiffer, Majorhifi.com
"Dean Vang has done a wonderful job with the Odins - a tuning which is engaging and spirited while being rooted in fantastic technicalities. It is a presentation which manages to exploit desired traits without the inherent consequences. A powerful and yet controlled low-end, a forward midrange devoid of glare and a detailed treble minus the sibilance. On top of this, the staging is fantastic with one of the most well-layered sound I have heard to date. For these reasons, the Empire Ear Odin can be considered one of the best to have graced the IEM scene of late. "
"Incredibly clear, detailed, balanced and powerful sound - Possibly the best-in-class IEM"
"The new king."
"SOLID Tonality, Highly detailed, Vocal placement, control, and texture is one of the best out there, Faceplate is just GORGEOUS, Cable is pretty up there in terms of quality." p >
Comments by the designer
"ODIN was developed to make the most of every moment the listener spends in his company and promises moments of pure listening euphoria While conventional IEMs focus on simply reproducing sound, ODIN delivers the exact emotion of every recorded nuance through its exceptional frequency response of 5Hz-100kHz.
These inspiring, dreamy moments are created using the three best currently available IEM driver technologies, the most advanced crossover system in the industry, the most potent components we could get our hands on, and masterful tuning by our founder, my father and CTO, Dean Vang.
ODIN is the embodiment of Empire's DNA in its most extreme form - in design, performance and scope of possibilities. ODIN is rediscovering the true meaning of engagement between listener and IEM. "
