Legend X has satisfied its name to for sure turn into a legend. The lead IEM for knowing audience members who need detail and goal, yet additionally need to be totally straightened by amazing bass reaction – is genuinely an exceptional headphone. The Special Edition, initially delivered only in Hong Kong, however later delivered to a more extensive crowd for one more restricted run, was intended to keep up with the profundity, effect, and thunder of the Legend X, yet to straighten out the remainder of the reaction to make it somewhat more adjusted.
BUILD AND DESIGN Of EMPIRE EARS LEGEND X SPECIAL EDITION:
The Legend X Special release gets a totally different look, and man, is it a look. It’s generally straightforward shell gives you a top at the inward functions and drivers, which is consistently cool, and the faceplates have a brushed silver plan with the Empire Ears logo on the right side, and a basic X on the left. Each IEM has the chronic number imprinted on it, yet since it’s a restricted release, these are tiny, low numbers: I’ve had the advantage of paying attention to #5.
Notwithstanding the new plan, the inward wiring has been overhauled. Rather than the standard copper wire, the SE utilizes a blend of silver, and high immaculateness copper wiring. To supplement the wiring update, the unique version accompanies the totally staggering Effect Audio Cleopatra silver link. The silver gives upgrades in clearness and weight over even the high immaculateness copper in the Ares II link that was packaged with the first Legend X. As far as looks, the new shells and Cleopatra link join to make a lovely, one of a kind plan.
SOUND Of EMPIRE EARS LEGEND X SPECIAL EDITION:
Profound, wide, smooth… these are only a couple of the words I could use to depict the Legend X Special Edition. Bass is the superstar, yet rather than a one stunt horse, Legend X SE gives you smooth however noticeable high pitch, and point by point mids that are pulled back, yet entirely not profoundly recessed. The profound thunder of the subbass, and tight punch of the bass are supplemented by sizzling cymbals, fresh vocal conveyance, and regular instrument tone and equilibrium.
The soundstage has extraordinary width and stature, with genuinely great profundity also. The imaging is exact and holographic. There’s a vivid inclination to the entire 3D picture which is introduced in a kind of short horseshoe shape reaching out from simply behind the audience members ears and folding over in front.
On the title track of Steve Cole’s Smoke and Mirrors, there’s a smooth synth and arpeggiated guitar that start the track. The fingerpicking on the guitar is clear and splendid, while the Legend X SE presents the synth as an ethereal material for the remainder of the band to play over. At the point when the section hits, the drum and bass have a durable inclination, with the bass adding shading and profundity to the tight punch of the bass drum. The assault and rot of the cymbals is tight, with sprinkles and crashes bobbing from left to right. What’s more the saxophone? You have in a real sense heard nothing so smooth in all your years as paying attention to Steve Cole playing saxophone with the Legend X SE. Got a word reference? Look into “smooth.” If it doesn’t have an image of Steve Cole and a Legend X SE, toss it out.
This being a restricted version with a tiny run, I wasn’t in any event, anticipating exploring the Legend X SE, yet when I got my hands on one, and paid attention to “Wish You Were Here” by Incubus, I realized I needed to give this IEM my complete consideration. The blend of how it presents the intricate, abrasive surface of the guitars, the little subtleties in the percussion, and the amazing conveyance of the drums and bass, it was the ideal IEM for paying attention to one of my main tunes off one of my cherished collections. Furthermore the vocals – on the refrain they’re direct and more cozy, yet when the band gets huge on the theme, there’s an exceptionally sensible inclination to the equilibrium of an artist getting stronger and singing more diligently to not be muffled by the remainder of the band.
Legend X SE’s more specialized abilities were completely in plain view paying attention to “Combatant Orchestra Suite Part 3, Now We Are Free” from The World of Hans Zimmer live execution. While the definition isn’t generally so solid as you would get from the Empire Ears Odin, there’s a better than average of partition and great arranging of the instruments. The vocals have a glow and close inclination notwithstanding being encircled by this huge symphony, mixing taking off highs and the most profound profundities in the low strings and percussion. The entire presentation meets up with Legend X SE encompassing the audience in a huge, enthusiastic exhibition.
