THIEAUDIO HYPE2 New Releases at Linsoul Audio
by Osamu Kann on Aug 07, 2023
In this relaxing holiday season, we are pleased to bring you the first release of Thieaudio's newest product line, HYPE (Hybrid Performance) - HYPE2.
From an anonymous group of DIY enthusiasts to one of the world's most acclaimed IEM brands, THIEAUDIO has travelled an incredible journey in the pursuit of high fidelity audio. Over the years, the brand has become a staple in the audiophile community around the world, beloved for its top-notch tuning, superb technical performance, and affordable price point.
As indicated by the name, the HYPE series will incorporate a variety of transducer types that best exemplify the innovations in the field to bring together a new class of in-ear headphones that excel both technically and sonically. The THIEAUDIO team guarantees that the HYPE series will live up to its name. At the same time, Hype2 also features a new low-frequency solution called IMPACT2 ("Impact Squared"). This is a new innovation from THIEAUDIO aimed at revolutionising the personalised audio industry, and consists of two 10mm composite diaphragm drivers arranged in an isobaric design. The addition of another 10mm woofer dramatically increases the power and texture of the bass, while our internal isobaric chamber design maintains constant frequency and pressure. Which means you can enjoy enhanced bass quality without compromising tonal integrity.
HYPE2 is equipped with a 2BA+2DD configuration using the two latest versions of the Sonion driver. The 2356 and E25ST are widely recognised and used by many of the biggest names in the IEM industry. After extensive testing of different driver types, HYPE2 chose the latest generation of drivers, the P2356HF/4 and the E25ST001/D. The updated P2356HF/4 significantly enhances output and reduces THD, enabling higher resolution and clarity than similar BA drivers in the same category. Similarly, the E25ST001/D super tweeter delivers outstanding tone, while effectively extending the treble to an audible range of up to 18kHz. This super tweeter delivers outstanding treble performance, just like the much-loved electrostatic (EST) driver, but with a smoother, more coherent tone.
True to THIEAUDIO 's commitment to tonal balance, HYPE2 features classic and much-loved studio monitor tonality. Thanks to IMPACT2, the bass is powerful, but well controlled by keeping a tight 200Hz bass rack. This means that the midrange is flat and neutral, accurately representing the tone of studio monitors used by professional audio engineers. The treble is honoured throughout the range, never peaking but also never dropping to maintain a balance between detail retrieval and pleasurable listening. Fans of the high-end THIEAUDIO line will be familiar with the overall tone, while new viewers will learn the true definition of in-ear monitors.
