The Bravado MKII is the next generation of the Bravado and is the sequel to one of our best selling IEMs. At its core is a substantially upgraded 4 driver tribrid configuration designed to exude the same u-shaped fighting spirit as its predecessor while addressing the growing need for even more dynamic range, detail retrieval and soundstage. All of this is made possible with the most advanced IEM technology currently available: a next generation W9+ subwoofer, a proprietary balanced armature driver and dual electrostatics divided 6-ways via a reengineered synX crossover network backed by EIVEC and ARC resonance mitigation technology.
The Bravado MKII embodies our relentless quest to push the limits of design and performance to a new extreme. With bolder styling, more technology and performance than ever before the Bravado MKII takes its class-obliterating heritage to unprecedented heights.
A TRINITY IN UNITY
Boasting three of the industry’s most advanced driver technologies, Bravado MKII is truly a standout tribrid IEM with an uncompromising performance ethos focused on delivering the purest connection between listener and IEM. W9+ Subwoofer – Sub Bass/Bass Our signature W9+ dynamic driver brought serious performance to the IEM world by combining the breakthrough of an enclosed woofer in a tuned bass-reflex system. Elevating the W9 design formula to its highest level, the W9+ boasts a larger internal coil diameter, more linear excursion envelope along with a more capable suspension to handle peak-to-peak excursion while mitigating distortion. W9+ extinguishes any limits the previous design had and delivers unparalleled bass on all fronts. 1 Precision Balanced Armature Driver– Mid Bravado MKII comes equipped with a proprietary balanced armature driver to deliver the signature midrange that the world has come to know and love from Empire Ears. 2 Electrostatic Drivers – High, Ultra High Bravado MKII masterfully manipulates dual electrostatic drivers in unison with our proprietary EIVEC technology to effortlessly reproduce a remarkable 5Hz-100kHz frequency range. The ultralight moving membrane within Bravado MKII’s electrostatic drivers give the most accurate transient response, resulting in unparalleled clarity, separation and detail.
LEGENDARY CROSSOVER SYSTEM
Genetically dissimilar from the rest of the IEM world, our synX crossover system truly stands out with countless bespoke methods and technologies protecting it as a unique masterpiece. A marriage of 2 different driver technologies become symphonized by a unique, proprietary 6-way synX crossover system designed to maximize performance from each and every driver.
WEAPON IX +
Our signature W9+ dynamic driver brings serious performance to the IEM world by combining the breakthrough of an enclosed woofer in a tuned bass-reflex system. Elevating the W9 design formula to its highest level, the W9+ boasts a larger internal coil diameter, a larger linear excursion envelope along with a more capable suspension to handle peak-to-peak excursion while mitigating distortion. W9+ extinguishes any limits the previous design had, and delivers unparalleled bass on all fronts.
THE RETURN OF EIVEC
The lightning-quick electrostatic drivers accommodates Bravado MKII’s wide frequency range while remaining balanced and compact. A single bespoke transformer unites the dual electrostats via EIVEC to all other components while eliminating any signs of phase incoherence throughout Bravado MKII’s remarkable 5Hz-100kHz frequency range.
ARC: Resonance Mitigation Technology
ARC (Anti-Resonance Compound) is a proprietary conformal coating that virtually eliminates unwanted vibrations and resonance from within IEMs. ARC effectively increases the mass of the components it’s applied to: every driver, crossover, and sound tube. This gives the internals more solidity while serving as a dampener to absorb the unwanted resonance instead of reflecting them out of phase. With A.R.C. clarity is increased substantially, bass is deeper, and the IEM becomes more efficient.
At Empire Ears we believe that an extraordinary IEM requires an extraordinary cable. We’re proud to introduce Alpha-IV (A4); a premium handcrafted 4 core cable comprised of a proprietary 26AWG UPOCC Litz Copper with multi-size stranding. The advantage of multi-sized stranded design within the same encapsulations enables A4 to achieve distinct highs and details due to the signal transmission speed in thinner cable strands, while the thicker size cable strands deliver smoother bass and mids.
