Universal Zeus-XR Adel™

$2,729.99

2 Legendary sound signatures, 1 in-ear monitor.

The Zeus-XR ADEL is our most ambitious project yet, boasting an all new switch control system that allows the user to toggle between the Zeus-XIV ADEL and Zeus-R ADEL instantaneously.. The Zeus-XR ADEL boasts unprecedented levels of engineering and components, including a colossal power reserve of 28 total balanced armature drivers, 5 precision ported sound bores, and a state-of-the-art dual system crossover network, to deliver the most extraordinary audio reproduction possible.

The Zeus-XR ADEL features the world's first and only patented technology that safely delivers a louder, more spacious and richer sound – all while avoiding the risk of hearing damage caused by in-ear monitors. When the ear canal is sealed by an in-ear monitor, the driver vibrations create harmful pneumatic pressures in the confined space. The ADEL technology features a secondary eardrum that absorbs the pneumatic pressures produced by in-ear monitors and provides a much safer listening experience. It delivers sound the way it was meant to be heard. With the ADEL, bass sounds deeper, midrange is clearer and highs sound richer than ever.

The Zeus-XR ADEL is the ultimate, quintessential in-ear monitor.

Estimated Build Time: 4-5 Weeks.
Rush orders are also available for $300 additional fee. Build time is 10 business days from the date order is approved.

Color options available are black chrome. For additional color options, please contact a dealer.

Description

Fully Adjustable to Your Ear’s Impedance

These ADEL™ Manual Adjustable Modules (MAM) are the most advanced Asius products yet.

This pair features easily adjustable controllers which can be turned while listening to music, and adjustable valves that help regulate pneumatic pressure, and each has a secondary membrane tensioner, as well as an adjustable “secondary” Eustachian tube.

Available to upgrade to the MAM from the B1 or G1 *

MSRP $199.99

Elevated Midrange & Treble

The ADEL™ B1 Auto Modules are designed to bring even more transparency and spaciousness to IEMs and earplugs. This is achieved by a single membrane design, which slightly reduces the bass and brings more spaciousness to the midrange and highs. The ADEL™ B1 is non-adjustable and automatically works to absorb the pneumatic pressures in your ear canal. and also reduces the occlusion effect (boom of your voice) even further to give singers and active wearers fatigue-free listening.

Included in the base price*

MSRP $99.99

Low End Frequency Response

The ADEL™ G1 Auto Modules are designed to bring even more clear bass to IEMs and earplugs. This is achieved by a different membrane design, which slightly increases the bass. The ADEL™-G1 is non-adjustable and automatically works to absorb the pneumatic pressures in your ear canal. and also reduces the occlusion effect (boom of your voice) even further to give singers and active wearers fatigue-free listening.

14 Balanced Armature Drivers

The Zeus-XR ADEL boasts 14 proprietary balanced armature drivers, each individually tuned via our advanced crossover network in order to achieve maximum coherence and resolution. Each and every driver at Empire Ears is subject to strict quality control tests before we apply a patent-pending nano magnetic coating. This conformal coating not only resists moisture and other harmful contaminants but also optimizes performance by shielding each driver’s magnetic field to eliminate all interference.

Using only the most exceptional components the Zeus-XR ADEL’s internals are individually wired and insulated with 7-strand, sapphire and gold, silver-plated copper Litz wires to eliminate acoustic feedback and further soldered with robust, ultra pure quad-eutectic for maximum conduction.



Dual Crossover Network System

The Zeus-XR ADEL features a state-of-the-art, industry leading, dual crossover system that allows the user to switch between both the Zeus XIV ADEL and Zeus R ADEL instantaneously at the flick of a switch on the faceplate. The up position activates the Zeus R ADEL’s 14 driver, 8-way crossover network and the down position activates the Zeus XIV ADEL’s 14 driver, 7-way crossover network. Unlike other in-ear monitor companies, Empire Ears does not use filters or dampers to manipulate the frequency curve. That method of tuning forces the drivers to operate outside of its intended frequency range, often duplicating too many of the same frequencies from numerous drivers. This means you’ll have to turn the volume up to hear what you want.

Our method of tuning allows the drivers to behave naturally as our crossover network is engineered to assign the proper frequencies and levels to the corresponding transducer. The end result is a crystal clear, full range frequency response that can be heard even at low volumes.



Five Bore Design

The Zeus-XR ADEL features 5 precision ported sound bore. Each bore is engineered and hand ported in-house to our exacting clearances in order to achieve optimum phase alignment, consistent performance, and the truest sound possible every time.
