Empire Ears Odin Sets a New Standard in Flagship IEMs

  • Tribrid design with dual dynamic drivers for the bass and quad electrostatic for the treble
  • Incredibly transparent, vivid presentation of music
  • The standard by which every other flagship IEM has been judged since its release

Bloom's Take

Odin released to massive hype and anticipation, and with its incredible detail, imaging, and resolution, it lived up to that hype. Since its release, Odin has become not just one of the leading flagship IEMs, but one of the biggest standards against which other IEMs are judged – and few can live up to its world class performance.

An IEM Icon

The universe needs icons. Those extraordinary few that stand clear of the rest. For these individuals who inspire greatness, only the purest formulation of Empire Ears will do. An icon like no other. A IEM that stands alone – so superlative to be named after the god of wisdom, poetry, death, divination, and magic. Odin has arrived. Its beauty leaves no room for doubt. Its power cannot be reasoned with.

Unquestionably, Odin sits at the pinnacle of the Empire Ears bloodline as our most legendary flagship in-ear monitor ever.

Designer's Notes

“ODIN is designed to make the most of every moment each listener spends in its company, promising instants of sheer listening euphoria. While conventional IEMs focus on simply reproducing sound, ODIN authoritatively delivers the exacting emotion of every nuance recorded through its extraordinary 5Hz-100kHz frequency response range. These inspirational, dreamlike moments are made possible by the utilization of the three best IEM driver technologies currently available, the most advanced crossover system in the industry, the most potent components we could possibly get our hands on and the masterful tuning by our founder, my father and CTO, Dean Vang. ODIN is the personification of Empire’s DNA at its most extreme – in design, performance and breadth of capabilities. ODIN rediscovers the true meaning of engagement between listener and IEM.”


The Bifrost is an ultra-exclusive, one-of-a-kind faceplate designed to optically simulate the mythological rainbow bridge between Midgard and Asgard, the realm of the gods. The Bifrost features nine individual polymer layers in three proprietary lamination steps and each lamination is unique in its ability to filter and reflect specific wavelengths of light.

This results in a faceplate that will produce breathtaking color transitions as the viewing angle change – literally shifting before your very eye. The Bifrost is masterfully handcrafted in the USA by an award winning chemist that currently holds two patents in polymer science for high solids coating chemistry.


At Empire Ears we believe that an extraordinary IEM requires an extraordinary cable. For the first time ever we've collaborated with the bespoke cable manufacturer PWAudio and PENTACONN of Japan to forge a cable worthy of Odin. Introducing Stormbreaker, an ultra premium handcrafted cable comprised of proprietary USA-sourced OCC Copper Litz configured in a quad conductor, dual gauge design, wrapped in an elegant black carbon jacket.

Stormbreaker is equipped with a CNC silver Valknut y-split featuring a .78 2-pin connector with a 4.4mm balanced termination.

According to Merriam-Webster, empire may be defined as follows: imperial sovereignty, rule, or dominion. These IEMs fit this meaning sense especially well. Let me unpack my enthusiasm over this set. 
Hardware: Schiit Audio Magni/Modi 3+; RME ADI 2 DAC FS; Effect Audio Fusion 1 cable and of course, the Empire Ears Odin. 
Audio: Tidal (Dolby Atmos); AIFF, 24bit-48kHZ; FLAC, 16bit-44kHZ.; FLAC 24bit-192kHz; Roon Nucleus. 
Tracks: Deep Water (Performed by Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar); Medicine Man (Performed by Dr. Dre, Eminem); Whatever Gets You Through the Night (Ultimate Mix) (Performed by John Lennon); Don’t Believe the Hype (2020 Mix Version) (Performed by Public Enemy); Bob Is Not Your Uncle Anymore (Performed by Walter Becker): XYX (Performed by deadmau5); To Live And Die in L.A. (Performed by Wang Chung). 
From the busiest (Medicine Man) to the simplest of these recordings (Whatever Gets You Through the Night), the Odin did not disappoint. Admittedly, all these tracks are very well recorded and engineered, so there may be some bias in my evaluation; however a second tier IEM/Hheadphone does not bring out the best of excellently recorded/engineered music. The Odin is no second tier IEM. Detail and instrument separation are outstanding. The bass is thunderous and tactile, yet it never muddies the mids/highs. Vocals are sharp, forward, and distinct. Stevie Nicks sounds amazing, even though this recording is not the most forgiving, and I ought to know, as I have listened to The Chain hundreds of times. The treble is sharp but not offensive or too bright. The mids are rich and sound satisfying to my ear with excellent tonality. 
On the Schiit stack it was easy to get lost in the music, as its sound is warm and colorful. Everything just sounded easy and enjoyable via the Odin. While the RME is slightly more analytical, it too offers a very enjoyable presentation, albeit more technical. It too gave the Odin a chance to show off its technical chops and boy did they ever. On Medicine Man every layer and complexity of the recording came bursting through on the Odin. I am going to slip in one more track: Come Live With Me Angel (Performed by Marvin Gaye), pure bliss is the best way to end this review. 
Do I recommend the Odin? Well, that answer should be obvious but, just in case it is not, the response is a resounding, thunderous (just like the Odin’s bass) yes!
