The Legacy

series takes the most trusted and established knowledge and designs available in the industry, and presents them in a refreshing and refined manner. Focusing on three primary values - musical tuning, high-fidelity sound quality, life-like listening experience - Thieaudio’s new project aims to redefine the true potential of in-ear monitors for both enthusiasts and professional musicians. So we welcome you to step in, and open your ears to a world of audio like nothing before.

The Start of a Legacy

The Thieaudio Legacy 3 was designed to provide an affordable in-ear monitor that would take no cuts in build or audio quality. While the Legacy 3 is an entry model into the Legacy series, its sound is the culmination of all of our skills and knowledge until now, and it falls nothing short of top of its class. In approaching the tuning of the Legacy 3, it had to be balanced and audiophile-grade in order to meet the Legacy series’ standards

Drivers&Tuning.

The proprietary 10mm Nano-Membrane dynamic diaphragm driver used in the Legacy 3 is the same high-quality driver as that of its older brother, the Legacy 9. The result is a coherent treble response that extends far, retrieves every detail, yet lacks any unnecessary dips or peaks. The resulting tuning is extremely balanced, with a powerful bass, slightly warm but clean mids, and detailed, yet coherent trebles. We could not be more proud of the Legacy 3’s sound, and for this reason, we believe it is a solid foundation for the Legacy lineup.

Elegant Design.

For the Legacy 3, we decided to go with a custom mechanical watch faceplate design. Each Legacy 3 is hand built from medical grade resin, and actual watch components are arranged by hand on the faceplate, before being sealed with resin. The result is an extremely detailed and elegant look, one that is different for every Legacy 3. Each earpiece takes almost an entire day to build, and the outcome is something that no mass produced product can ever achieve

Custom Upgrade Cable.

The Legacy 3 was paired with a custom 7N 8-core OCC copper cable made specifically for the Legacy 3. We chose copper as it emphasizes the smooth and warm characteristic of the IEM, bringing to life the detail and texture within the sound. You won’t have to worry about buying any other cable for the Legacy 3.

THE JOURNEY OF 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. The first chapter, the Thieaudio Phantom, drew overwhelming praise from the international community and was even applauded as the new standard for planar magnetic headphones by some.  Gathering this momentum, we are proud to present the next chapter of Thieaudio - the Voyager and Legacy series. Headed by master audio engineer Chongjun, these new series of In Ear Monitors were created to bring about unparalleled sound performance that would rival the leading international brands.  The Voyager series was designed as the launch of Thieaudio’s pursuit in the realm of in-ear monitors, and features some of the most innovative techniques we have to offer. We believe the Voyager series may be more suited for musicians, while the Legacy series may better fit audiophiles and music enthusiasts.

WHAT’S WE ALSO CARE ABOUT?-BUILD QUALITY &AESTHETICS!

Although priced at an accessible bracket, we are fully confident that the Legacy 3 can compete against any in-ear monitor in every price range. In order to make the Legacy series stand out, each model gets a unique (and oftentimes a boutique custom add on for other brands) design. It’s an extra expense we are willing to take in order to make the Legacy lineup truly a lasting legacy of our brand. Handmade and selected faceplate, custom cable, there’s no reason you can’t fall in love with this delicacy even with a glimpse of look!

They sound good, but the durability is really bad

I was really satisfied with the sound quality of these things. It really is great, but they fall apart easily. About a month into using them the connectors started to chip which made it really loose. It got to the point where they would disconnect while using them. Fast forward about a couple months later the left bud completely broke. It got disconnected and fell to the ground, which the internals were damaged. Really disappointed.

Do not take a chance on getting Custom IEMS, and save your money by buying less expensive IEMS

After waiting a month, I am not pleased with the Legacy CIEMs. They did not create a good enough seal, and my $20 KZs and my $60 KZs sound way better anyways. In order to get a seal, I have to continually push and hold the CIEMs in place. Yes, I understand I can schedule to have a new set of impressions made... and then pay ridiculous shipping charges to an address that is "extremely difficult for UPS and DHL to enter", and then of course wait another month to have Linsoul make a second attempt at making CIEMs for me... but you know, if they couldn't make them right the first time, chances are the second set isn't going to turn out much better. Therefore, I cannot truly comment on the quality of the Legacy 3 because the CIEMs prevent me from making a good assessment. All I can say it this... save your $200, and don't waste it like I did trying to get a company several thousand miles away to make you custom anything. I asked to have the CIEMs replaced with some generic IEMs of a similar value. Was told a couple of times, customs cannot be returned. I guess that makes some sense, but certainly puts the entire gamble on the customer. So, don't waste your money and get burned on shoddy customs like I did.

Polished and Accomplished

The L3 is a great iem. The sound signature is very balanced:

- Great DD bass that extends deep
- Slightly forward mids that emphasise vocals really nicely
- Great treble energy and extension

A great all rounder that more than holds its own against iems 5x its price. A Truly Remarkable accomplishment by Linsoul.

If you're looking for a great iem below $150, look no further. L3 is legit.

Distorted Audio

I got the custom iem version which were made quickly and to my specs (based on my impressions). Customer service was great and the whole experience was fast. Unfortunately the left ear driver has a lot of distortion at all volumes making them difficult to listen to.

Sound Great, low durability

A peace of the outer shell where the driver connects to the cord broke off while trying to connect the two pieces. I sometimes worry about the headphones because the two pieces can come apart so easily, while traveling an old pair was destroyed because one fell off onto the street and was runover by a car. They are great headphones, and I wouldn't want to lose the detachableness of the cabling but I do wish it was more secure and the material of the headphones was stronger. It can be difficult to plug the cord into the headphones
