Effect Audio King Arthur Review

Review Ratings
8.8 / 10 Reviewer
{{ reviewsOverall }} / 10 Users (0 votes)
Pros
- Premium statement product and delivers
- Well-tuned Hi-Fi sound signature
- Gorgeously designed Caliburn cable
Cons
- Need for a clean source
- Amplification is required to realise full potential
Summary
King Arthur is a premium statement product by Effect Audio. Oozing with luxury, it is a product tailored for the most sophisticated portable audio hobbyist.

The use of premium materials across the product coupled with a well-tuned Hi-Fi sound signature ensures delivery of the combination of Hi-Fi & luxury lifestyle which Effect Audio seeks to achieve.

The need for a clean source and amplification to realise the full potential of the King ensures that it would not be very portable, however, it sounds like no other IEMs we've heard.

  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.
