EarMen Tradutto

EarMen present a new and highly sophisticated DAC designed to enhance the sonic performance of listening systems.

Tradutto’s inner workings are laden with cutting edge components all configured on a gold plated PCB for low and clean resistance contact as well as perfect balance. The circuit has been optimised specifically to improve power filtering and draw as little current as possible. This move serves to lower interference from nearby WiFi, cellular or Bluetooth activity from other devices. Audio conversion is handled by the ES9038Q2M DAC chip which offers outstanding sound performance and tackles digital output up to 32bit/768kHz or DSD512 with remarkable ease.

MQA, MQA Studio and FSR formats are also supported. To satisfy a wide array of source equipment, a comprehensive collection of connections are available on Tradutto’s rear panel including digital optical, coaxial and USB inputs.

EarMen Legend EVO

Continuing the reign of the hugely successful Legend X, Legend EVO from Empire Ears is a brand new IEM boasting an 8-driver configuration and bone conduction technology powered by EE’s proprietary W10 ‘ultra-driver.’

Legend EVO tackles conduction from two fronts. A combination of W9 and armature drivers skilfully tackle the highs of 20kHz all the way down to 5Hz, while a new and specially situated W10 driver extends this range to 35kHz. Both driver configurations utilise a different form of conduction to achieve this feat. W9 and armature drivers use air conduction, while the W10 concentrates purely on bone conduction for lower, deeper tones. The beating heart of the Legend EVO is Empire Ears’ proprietary bone conduction ultra-driver known as the Weapon X or W10 for short.

Each W10 features a stainless SPCC steel chassis to eliminate resonance or colouration, an N52 magnet composed of a special blend of neodymium, iron and boron, and a Japanese-made pure copper voice coil for unprecedented frequency and transient response.
