    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    I have owned both - kept the Bravado. Very similar sound signature to the LX (to my ears) at a fraction of the price. The LX does give you more of everything though, in a good way - what stood out for me, between the two, is that the LX provides a wider soundstage and more texture. I'm more...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    I agree with all of D's comments above. I've owned all three and the LX is the only one I've kept. The LX definitely delivers oodles of bass, but I find it to be far more articulate and textured than, for example, the CA Vega. It performs stunningly with electronic music (to which I dedicate...
