In Stock! Ready to Ship!

Founder's Edition - Limited To The 1st 100 Units

Hero is persistent, ferocious & defying – a rejection of rules, preconceptions & everything that’s expected from it. It represents a tour de force of Empire’s knowledge & workmanship, elevating musicality presentation to a level non-existent in its level. With DNA sourced directly from Legend X & Zeus XIV, Hero reveres our past to emulate flagship quality levels of performance without the flagship admission.

The heart of Hero is a proprietary quad hybrid configuration comprised of proprietary triple balanced armatures and a next generation W9+ subwoofer. This staunch combination generates legendary bass response while delivering lush, intimate vocals and supreme detail retrieval via a 4-ways synX crossover network backed by ARC resonance mitigation technology.

Every element of Hero is a combination of reminiscence to our history and it embodies our relentless quest to push the limits of possibility. Its sophisticated design, proprietary technology and extraordinary audio reproduction capabilities make it a class-dominating masterpiece.
