THIEAUDIO

THIEAUDIO was launched in 2019 as a creative endeavor of Linsoul Audio. The goal of THIEAUDIO was to serve as a creative platform for gathering the best teams of engineers to inspire revolutionary audio products for audiophiles and professionals alike. For each project, we hand select the most innovative and renown engineers in his or her field to oversee the design, engineering, and manufacturing of the products. Gathering the momentum from the success of the THIEAUDIO Phantom planar magnetic headphones, as well as the Voyager, Legacy, and Signature series In-Ear Monitors (IEM’s), we are committed to the continual expansion on the limits of high-fidelity audio. We welcome you to join us and experience excellence in musical performance.

Signature Series

The Signature Series lineup of THIEAUDIO represents the pinnacle of our R&D skill sets, combining both the latest technology and innovative engineering to bring together top of the line IEM’s. The first two Signature Series models, the Monarch and Clairvoyance, were hailed globally as among the best IEM’s on the market. Following this success, we are proud to release two new twins tribrids: the Excalibur and Oracle.

The Excalibur and Oracle utilize the latest driver technology from the Danish manufacturer, Sonion - the Electrostatic (EST) tweeter. The EST driver features an ultralight membrane in a small tweeter chamber that is powered by an independent transformer to extend the in-ear monitor’s treble range up to 80kHz. In reality, the utilization of these drivers effectively enhances the extreme-treble response and thereby provides a protracted treble decay, a more airy atmosphere, and enhanced sound resolution. The correct implementation of EST drivers can make normal balanced armature driver earphones seem dull and lackluster in comparison.

Oracle: Your Sound Fully Revealed

The Oracle is a 2EST+2BA+1DD tribrid design IEM, featuring three different classes of drivers matched based on their unique functional properties. The Oracle was designed with professional studio use in mind, and is tuned as proper monitors. The mid frequencies are ruler flat to bring about a neutral reproduction of instruments and vocals that is uncolored. A pinpoint placement of the pinna compensation ensures a smooth transition from the mids to the treble, enhancing a crisp bite to vocals and snare drums. The EST drivers are utilized to bring about an airy soundstage and enhanced resolution. To round everything up and keep the sound balanced, the Oracle is tuned with a powerful subbass emphasis that is cut exactly at 200Hz to maintain an uncolored mid region while mimicking the presence of physical subwoofers.

The subbass of the Oracle is powered by a new 10mm polycarbonate dynamic driver to produce a deeper and more impactful low-frequency sound distribution. The driver has been further optimized with stronger magnets to increase its speed and response. We have chosen a customized American Knowles DFK series balanced armature (BA) drivers to reduce the total harmonic distortion (THD) in this fundamental region of the frequency spectrum, and because of its excellent pinna gain placement. Combined with our tuning capabilities, we are blown away by the performance of our new BA driver selection, and believe they will be an instant crowd pleaser. More importantly, these BA drivers match perfectly with the tonal characteristics of the Sonion EST drivers, creating a natural synergy that brings out impeccable detail retrieval, spacious soundstage, and an airy atmosphere.

Despite the sonic advantages of EST drivers, their relatively low sound output volumes mean that the tuning requires special engineering to balance out all of the drivers to make the EST drivers heard. Our prior experiences working with these drivers have honed our abilities to precisely calibrate all of the drivers in the system to best bring out the EST drivers. We believe that the Oracle is among the very few IEM’s in the market that fully takes advantage of the full potential of EST drivers, and you’ll benefit from the crisp treble extension that is incomparable with any other drivers out there.

Oracle impression

I would say a nice iem great tonality, balance on frequencies distribution. Instrument separation is also impressive on the price point. It will reveal it's full potential when you upgrade the eartips, in my case, I use AZLA. I will rate 4.5 star.

nothing much

These headphones play very well but the upgrade from timeless 7hz was not very noticeable they are not very suitable for fast rock and metal they are only more detailed

"the only things you need to know"

Oracle is not as 'natural' nor 'realistic' in tonality as you might expect regardless of the high praises for the tuning on some popular reviews. the fact that it uses only 2 Sonion EST drivers for the treble makes the treble sounds 'anemic' or 'weak' to my ears. the EST timbre alone is kind of 'wispy' and lacks proper energy & 'authority', unlike its BA counterpart, albeit the lack of the BA's upper-treble extension. so is it the tuning? and what do you get when the treble is weak? instead of "sshhp" you get "ssssp". no authority. no bone. but wait. Oracle can sound good. very good. what sorcery is that? ear tips rolling. as simple as that.

if you have something like Moondrop Blessing 2 and you like it, maybe look for something else or stop. if you prioritize natural TONALITY, natural timbre, DYNAMIC, energy, punch, slam, drums forward, bass, fun, you might want to look somewhere else too. being a neutral monitor, Oracle has lesser punch and thumps so bear that in mind. but if you really really want to experience the Sonion EST implementation in an IEM with a limited budget, with the right ear tips, I think Oracle reproduces music extremely well. I always imagine the EST can only work as a 'supplement' instead of a core foundation to the whole treble response but I was wrong. Idk about other tribrids, but I didn't fall in love with what I've heard at first. but hey, maybe it's my ear's resonance? but at last, I've found the tune. my tune. and it's almost magical. I can't. stop. listening. to. the. Oracle. period.

so in reality, if you want something "relaxed" while having a great detail retrieval capability with good tonality, if you heavily listen to pop music, if you prioritize vocals, if you listen to noise rock, progressive metal, atmospheric sludge metal, electronica, neo-psychedelia, nu-jazz, hard-bop, no wave, totalism, chamber, orchestral, sonatas, arias, modern classical at large, then Oracle might be your next IEM (sounds like everything). but if you ask me to nitpick more, the dynamic range is somewhat lacking & the treble timbre is not that excellent, even the B2/Dusk sound 'better' at times. because with wrong ear tips, it sounds like wind, without the blow... just an illusion... life is an illusion

MY ENDGAME

Just buy it you'll not have regrets.

vs. KZ SZ10 Pro

In a casual blind test, my dad could not perceive much difference between these and the $40 KZ SZ10 Pros. He actually thought the KZs were the more expensive pair of headphones ~citing better bass.

Setup: (same) 2.5mm balanced silver cable (2 pin) w/ BTR5k AMP/DAC connected via USB to a Macbook Pro 2015 listening to Alice in Chains "down in a hole - unplugged" through Spotify, (different but similar) silicon tips on both. Note that listening volumes were likely not matched perfectly, with KZ10s being naturally louder (lower power draw) out of the gate & me allowing my dad to tune the volume himself.

My own opinion is that these excel on the highs (so smooth, probably due to the ES driver), but the mids are too emphasized and lows are kinda shit. The bass is essentially removed (but not in a bad way? like listening to the song live without the bass player). This configuration is exceptional for classics, vocal tracks, jazz, folk country, opera, ect.. ~tracks where isolation in the high end can really make things shine. This configuration is not exceptional for electronic music, hip hop, rock, ect... Eg; "Bless the Telephone by Labi Siffre" sounds absolutely incredible on these, but "Gold Dust by DJ Fresh" sounds like it's been re-recorded through a flip phone and upsampled. For that reason, I wouldn't recommend them as general use headphones for the average person looking to upgrade from their existing < $100 Chifi IEMs. For entertainment (gaming, skateboarding, ect..) I find myself reaching for the KZ SZ10 Pros because the bass gets me hyped, and for work I use these (no hype / distraction -- just very clear / "correct" sounding audio).

Also, as another reviewer pointed out, it is extremely easy to break things when swapping out cables. I recommend using a guitar pick or credit card or long fingernails to pry out the 2 pin connectors rather than pulling on the cable / bending things.

Great IEM

The THIEAUDIO Oracle is a wonderful IEM, well balanced, detailed and a pleasure to listen to. It is comfortable for my ears, not too big. The bass is present but not overpowering, the highs are detailed but not shrill. I love the sound of these IEMs, the presentation is very good. The soundstage is about average for an IEM. I do like the quality of the materials, the build and craftsmanship. The cable is well done, supple and nice to look at. I would highly recommend the Oracle. Bravo!

Great IEM

It's a great IEM and very pleasant as for me. There's not much IEMs at this price point. You won't be disappointed at all. Highly recommend.

Smooth and detailed but boring.

After weeks of waiting and anticipation, I finally got my hands on these. Here are my thoughts.
The good: Great design, beautiful shell, fits great in the ear unless you have small ears, cable is the best I have used. Smooth treble and great imaging.
The bad: Sound stage is ok compared to some iems in the same price bracket. The accessories are limited, I have seen $50 iems have more tip selection, two sets of foams and only one size spinfits are very weak for the price. The quality of bass and sub bass is good but not what i expected from a pair of iems that cost this much.
The Ugly: The two pin holes on the iem are so small that my iems are now permanently attached to the cable, if i remove the cable i risk snapping my cable pins into the iem, this is a serious QC issue that should be looked into.
Overall:
Overhyped and overpriced. Stay away from these if you like to listen to upbeat /pop type music. The tuning is very audiophile friendly in a bad way(personally) , its not fun whatsoever, I was expecting the so called sub bass emphasis to bring out some euphoria but it doesn't. Tweaking the EQ or bass boost doesn't really help either. If you are one of those people who want analytical iems these are good. Would not recommend to those that like the Blon 03.
