The Valkyrie was forged for a sole purpose: to create the single most captivating listening experience possible. Countless iterations were cast aside, falling just short of our vision. It was a challenge worthy of our decades of experience, experience utterly necessary to grasp victory from the jaws of the impossible. And it is glorious. The Valkyrie dances the knife's edge, somehow both bombastic and intimate. Laser precise highs deliver unprecedented detail while a tight and responsive low end drives a listening experience unlike any other. An Electrostatic Driver for the highs, tamed by our world-leading EIVEC - Empire Intelligent Variable Electrostatic Control - technology blends seamlessly with a Balanced Armature Driver for the mids and our signature Weapon IX subwoofer for the lows, all precisely controlled by a 4-way synX Crossover Network. We've thrown everything we have at the Valkyrie, and the results speak for themselves. The Valkyrie comes with our new and exclusive "Dragonhide" faceplate and an Effect Audio Eros II cable as standard.
EIVEC & Electrostatic Drivers
Valkyrie owes much of its energy and impact on the listener to Empire's newest technology, EIVEC, Empire Intelligent Variable Electrostatic Control. Through EIVEC we've managed to bring the three separate driver technologies into perfect harmony. Electrostatic drivers have remarkable capabilities but have a tendency to drown out their dynamic and balanced armature counterparts. Using EIVEC, the EST in Valkyrie delivers a crisp and detailed high end that blends seamlessly with the rest of the sound profile of tight, rich and natural lows from the Weapon IX dynamic subwoofer and lush mids from the balanced armature driver.
The Empire X series Valkyrie model features a combination of proprietary EST drivers, balanced armature speakers and dynamic range W9 subwoofers in order to deliver maximum clarity while achieving a powerful low end response. Each model is further tuned with a specially designed synX crossover network to achieve studio monitor levels of audio reproduction effortlessly and faithfully.
Bespoke Handcrafted Cables
Every Valkyrie in-ear monitor includes a bespoke, handcrafted Eros II cable by Effect Audio. The Eros II boasts a proprietary blend of 26 AWG UPOCC Litz Copper and UPOCC Pure Silver wire with ultra-flexible insulation for maximum signal speed transmission, performance, and ergonomics. Each cable is terminated in an ultra durable 3.5mm, 24k Oyaide gold plated right angle plug. Alternatively, for our audiophile clientele, we also offer 2.5 and 4.4 balanced terminations at no additional charge.
Effect Audio’s extensive engineering and manufacturing background give them the edge over all other cables. After extensive testing with numerous other cable manufacturers, we’re proud to announce our official partnership with Effect Audio to bring you some of the finest cables in the industry and to ultimately defeat the weak link in IEMs.
