Empire Ears’ Legend X combines proprietary balanced armature speakers with W9 subwoofers to offer high clarity and an enjoyably powerful low end. Supported by the synX crossover network, audio reproduction is executed intelligently across multiple bands with striking loyalty to original musical material.

Twin Sequential W9 Subs

Amongst Legend X’s arsenal of seven proprietary drivers, Empire Ears have included two W9 subwoofers measuring in at 9mm and delivering a rich and revealing lower end.

The W9’s woofer is safely enclosed in a specially tuned and highly efficient bass reflex system. Sound is directed by the front port and ventilation via the rear, providing the ability to hit target response frequencies with room to go even lower where required.

10-Way synX Network

Empire Ears’ state-of-the-art 10-way crossover network design - known as synX - is an industry leading technology allowing audio to be designated to multiple bands across each driver. The fruits of this technique culminate in widely increased frequency bandwidth, an impressive signal-to-noise ratio, low distortion and finally maximum signal transfer.

While neutral in tone and a balanced signature throughout, an addictive treble energizes the music, while simultaneously remaining smooth. But our greatest challenge yet was incorporating the low-reaching, impactful bass of the W9 subwoofers, with technical performance rivaling any in-ear monitor on the market; a challenge we can proudly proclaim we have overcome. Offering top-tier levels of transparency and separation, as well as one of the widest sound stages in the industry, our flagship has earned its position at the top of the lineup: a Legend is reborn.
