From a nameless group of DIY enthusiasts to one of the best acclaimed IEM brands in the world, THIEAUDIO has made an incredible journey in the pursuit of high-fidelity audio. THIEAUDIO has become a staple brand in audiophile communities around the world, beloved for its best-in-class tunings, superb technical performances, and budget-friendly pricing. From the start, the THIEAUDIO team has put audio quality at the forefront of each project, aiming to be the Robin Hood of the audio world by bringing the best sounding audio solutions at the most affordable prices. Since its launch in 2019, THIEAUDIO’s legacy of in-ear monitors has forever changed the world of IEM’s, influencing how global manufacturers of earphones engineer their products. THIEAUDIO’s international team of few, but dedicated engineers from China and South Korea are committed to continuing this legacy by creating innovative, yet affordable, audio solutions that will leave you in awe.
THIEAUDIO is excited to announce a fresh lineup of next-generation IEM’s: Hype (Hybrid Performance). Since our journey into the world of Hi-Fi audio, we have accomplished much and have grown tremendously with every new project. Every launch has taught us how to develop better sounding audio solutions, as well as develop and utilize new driver types. We are putting together all of our acquired knowledge into the new Hype series. As the name implies, the Hype series will integrate multiple transducer types that best demonstrate innovations in the field to bring together new IEM’s that excel in both technicalities and tonality. We promise that the Hype series will live up to its name.
The IMPACT2 (“Impact Squared”) is THIEAUDIO’s latest technological innovation to change the personalized audio industry. IMPACT2 is a new subwoofer solution consisting of two 10mm composite diaphragm drivers arranged in an isobaric design. The addition of another 10mm subwoofer significantly enhances the power and texture of the bass, while our in-house isobaric chamber design keeps the frequency and pressure constant. This means you can enjoy better-quality bass without sacrificing tonal integrity.
Latest Generation Sonion Drivers
The Hype 4 features the latest generation of Sonion Drivers, which we have custom implemented specifically for the Hype 4. The Soinion E50 series “Hummingbird” is a dual ultra-tweeter balanced armature driver, with the best technical specifications from any treble drivers offered by Sonion so far. With superb ultra-treble extension that rivals EST or planar drivers, as well as lower driver vibrations and harmonic distortions at higher outputs, the E50 series is one of the most robust treble drivers we have tested so far.
Furthermore, we have selected the updated 26A series driver from Sonion for the mids. Dual stacking of this driver provides excellent output-to-THD ratios, which means you’ll notice a higher perceived audio resolution, texture, and layer in your mids and treble. Our implementation of the 26A series driver provides excellent tonal balance, particularly in the fundamental midrange, as well as lower trebles, with a near-perfect match to our target curvatures. The combination of the 26A with the E50 series drivers is one of our most exciting and efficient balanced armature utilizations so far.
The Classic THIEAUDIO Tonal Perfection
Following the foundation of preceding models, the Hype 4 required a tonal signature that was nothing less than perfection. Using the blueprint from the Monarch MKII, Clairvoyance, and the Oracle, the Hype 4 features our most successful tonal balance. With a strong sub-bass presence that cuts off precisely at 200Hz, with a ruler-flat midrange, to a near-perfect pinna curvature at 3kHz and a mild gradual decay until 20kHz, the Hype 4 is the perfect studio setup in your ears. Discerning audiences will appreciate the clean separation from the bass and the mids, which allows sub-bass impacts to be even more precise while the mids remain neutral and as-intended by the studio engineers. The treble response reminisces on one of the most legendary IEM’s that has revolutionized the industry. The technicalities from a humble 6 driver configuration sets new standards for this price bracket. The Hype 4 encompasses the no-nonsense recipe for THIEAUDIO perfection.
Intended for the Professionals
The Hype 4 performs as portable studio monitors, and recalls back on the original meaning of in-ear monitors. From its wide soundstage to excellent stereo imaging and layering capabilities, the Hype 4 provides technical discernment that rivals even the best of studio monitors and monitoring headphones. The sub-bass-boosted neutral tuning signature is meant to deliver the exact tonality that the music was originally mixed on. The Hype 4 focuses on one thing - being as accurate and precise as it can, and we believe it truly delivers. So, musicians, studio engineers, and audiophiles who want the real deal, the Hype 4 is the IEM for you.
