THIEAUDIO Oracle MKII
The Oracle was the Mecca for audiophiles and audio engineers requiring perfect tonal accuracy and precision. The all-new Oracle MKII is the next evolutionary step in high-fidelity audio.
The original THIEAUDIO Oracle was a benchmark in tuning when it came to mimicking the tonal balance of professional studio monitors. With its absolutely flat and neutral midrange, near perfect treble curvature that compensates for the acoustics of the human ear canal, and a dedicated sub-bass woofer, the Oracle stood as one of the few, if not only, in-ear monitors that could be described as truly a reference monitor.
Three-way Crossover with three different types of drivers (1 Dynamic Driver + 2 Balanced Armatures + 2 Electrostatic)
Modular 4 strand 26AWG 5N OCC Silver Plated Litz with easy plug swapping between 3.5mm, 4.4mm, and 2.5mm jacks.
Studio-style tuning with Dedicated Sub-Bass Woofer, Monitor-Neutral Mids, and increased treble extension.
Better Ergonomics for longer, more comfortable use.
The Original Monitor Tuning, Remastered
The Oracle MKII features tribrid speaker technology, integrating an all new 10mm liquid crystal polymer (LCP) dynamic driver, 2 Knowles balanced armature drivers, and 2 Sonion electrostatic (EST) ultra-treble tweeters. These five drivers are integrated using a three-way crossover, in which the frequency range of each driver is divided according to their best specifications. Our passive crossover solution minimizes the total harmonic distortion (THD), ensures the best performance from each driver type, and maximizes the clarity of every note across the whole frequency spectrum.
While the original Oracle featured a minimal sub-bass response, we wanted to enhance the punchiness and impact of the sub-bass while maintaining the Oracle-esque neutral midrange. The Oracle MKII has been fitted with a new 10mm LCP dynamic driver. The LCP diaphragm has a much stronger surface tension compared to the previous generation of polycarbonate diaphragms utilized in the original Oracle. This translates to faster driver speed, allowing for increases in the power of the sub-bass, while preventing bleed into the lows and mids. Through improvements in the sub-bass woofer, the Oracle MKII benefits from 62.5% increase in the core sub-bass frequencies (measured at 60Hz) - all while having a neutral midrange in the 200Hz~1kHz band.
Three driver types, Three-way Crossover
The soul of the Oracle is monitor-capability. The Oracle MKII stays faithful to this foundation by retaining its near ruler-flat midrange in the 200Hz~1kHz frequency region. Most in-ear monitors add color to the sound by failing to properly crossover the bass and mid-treble drivers, resulting in a bloated and muddy midrange.
This fault is corrected in the Oracle MKII by implementing a mathematically calculated and electrically engineered crossover solution that precisely cuts the dynamic driver off right as the balanced armature starts. The mids of the Oracle MKII are powered by the same dual Knowles balanced armature drivers featured in the Monarch MKII. By delivering an uncolored and neutral midrange, your music will finally sound as the studio engineers intended it to. And for the studio engineers themselves, the Oracle MKII is among the very very few IEM’s that will tonally mimic your studio monitors.

This thing is impressive. The extension both for bass and treble is remarkable, details come out great. The tuning is not natural nor flat. Treble is coloured, est's sound good, maybe more revealing than some good ba's but not on par with the timbre of say... a very expensive dynamic. They are very close to being too "metallic" (if that's a word), and it does not help that the midrange is recessed. They are also a bit hard to drive. Despite all those "negatives" i haven't heard anything better or more resolving especially under $1000.
(Oh p.s..., didn't like the cable much, also they are waaaay smaller than i expected.smaller than the mangird tea 2 for example)
Great Iem, but careful with the cable... it sucks, the 2 pin bent within a month and i have to replace it! and the small for pins on the hybrid side are flimsy too!
I use to think that the $500 mark is the limit for diminishing returns. Since getting this, I'm starting to consider that this might stop at the $200-$250 range. I just didn't feel anything even remotely close to $500 of sound and or looks. I'm Coming from the Kato's, Dusk, and even Final audio B3...I just didn't get the sense that I experiencing anything truly different, especially with the ESt Drivers that these have. I thought this was going to change the game for me but it hasn't.
We are very sorry that you are not satisfied.
We care about the feelings of each customer and we will take your comments seriously.
However, it is also a subjective matter, but please rest assured that we will try to do better.
If there are any other questions, please feel free to let us know.
Have a nice day!
Quite fun to listen to, not neutral but engaging. To me it’s lacking some mid bass. However replacing the tips with Final E silicone improved the bass.
Also, I’m using the IFI GO BLU as source, and enabling the X-bass fixes the bass when needed.
These are super good iems, bass is well controlled and trebles are not shouty. and they fit in the ear so comfortably, almost feels like a custom fit
Very Addictive to listen to Oracle II, well worth twice its price. Details, stage and base are very relaxing 😎
Awesome sounding neutral earphone. The bass is calm tight, the upper midrange is is almost dead center in terms of placement. Treble is neutral and extends nicely. Note: Using other tips can make the bass too bloaty and boosted less natural. Use the stock tips for neutral sound. Vocal and treble beast, the detail levels are perfect for this price point.
These don't have the widest soundstage, but they shove a ton of detail in your head without ever sounding siblant. I recommend these for music or work. If you want something relaxing these may not be the ones for you. I own both oracles and they are different enough to justify getting both. I think I like the original oracles a little more, but I really love these too. Keeping both! Also, I changed to spinfit medium tips, made a huge difference over stock tips which didnt fit my ears well. Mem foam sounded good too. They are very pretty too. Awesome cable and case pouch!
It doesn't matter if you have tried the OG Oracle or haven't.
Oracle Mk2 will absolutely make you go through your entire libary all over again like a whole new whole different experience.
I will not cut in to many details of how it sounds to myself but briefly.
-BASS: Tight, well-separted, delivered with impact and physicality within notes from end to end (Sub-bass to mid-bass). But cleanly tone down in mid-bass for a spotless and true MID RANGE.
-MID: ORIGINALITY is the word to describe most stuff i tried with Oracle MK2 (Damien Rice, The Killers, Leon Bridges, Jacob Collier, Paramore, Electric Youth, Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Black Sabbath, The Airborne Toxic Event, Dead Letter Circus). But it's not boring by any means, the more you listen the more addicting it gets.
-TREBLE: Nothing to complain but nothing to praise either, I basically love treble more than anything (I love MEST MK1, QDC Anole VX, LetShuoer S12). Little bit smooth out, not too detail. It's walking the line between treble smoothness (Mangird Xenns Up) and spicy tasty sticky sharpy lovely treble (MEST MK1 or S12). It's alright.
-Fit and Finish: Small shell, good fit, avarage seal and passive noise cancelling. Though it's best feature is the design/color/faceplate. Black Scarlet is an entire universe in the palm of your hand believe me. It shifts color depending on reflection,lighting and your mood(lol).
-Accessories: Ok I guess, I don't care about this. Cable is Ok also, avarage. Tips I haven't tried any since I have my own tips of choice (KB07 + Spinfit W1)
-CONCLUSION: Bang for your buck, Grab it, 5 out of 5. Variations WAS the king, no longer now. NOT A RIVAL BUT A USURPER.
I have zero need to try any other tribrid with similar tunings. Good job Linsoul. Cheers to THIEAUDIO.
