  1. Hi there, what amp did you actually use to achieve the right amount of power for the King Arthurs?
    I would honestly like try these IEMs out even though they’re getting pretty bad impressions on head-fi.
    It’s honestly confusing since I’m sure the reviewers like yourself and others from headfonics and headfonia wouldn’t take their impressions of these lightly.

    It’s crazy for a company like Effect Audio and Empire Ears to charge that much too if they think it wouldn’t match the sound they wanted to convey.
    I myself love the Wraith, and not a lot of people do. So I do wonder what went wrong.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    • Hi Matz Rios, thanks for your comment. The Effect Audio King Arthur is a very interesting pair of In-Ear Monitors. For a portable setup I have used it with the Full Balanced Portable Headphone Amp model 428 from MASS-Kobo. I also find it an interesting match with the Yulong DA10 which is a desktop DAC Amp. Hope this helps.
