Subcribe to back in stock notification
Five-way Crossover with three different types of drivers (1 Dynamic Driver + 4 Balanced Armatures + 4 Electrostatic)
Modular 22AWG 6N OCC Silver-Plated and Graphene Silver-Plated Cable with easy plug swapping between 3.5mm, 4.4mm, and 2.5mm jacks.
Reference Tuning with Reference Technicalities.
Unparalleled audio resolution, comparable to the world’s best speakers and headphones.
The Prestige is a tribrid in-ear monitor featuring 4 electrostatic + 2 mid-treble balanced armature + 2 low-mid balanced armature + 10mm dynamic drivers.
These 9 drivers deliver an unparalleled reference class sound. Beyond the novelty of the drivers utilized in the Prestige, its engineering and manufacturing represent the pinnacle of innovation in the field.
The Prestige stock cable maintains the ultra-pure 6N OCC silver-plated and graphene silver-plated cable in Litz structure, but the additional strand incorporation gives it a slightly meatier feel and a richer sound.
5-Way Passive Crossover Network
The Prestige presents an all-tech, no gimmick true 5-way passive crossover network system. In multi-driver speaker or earphone systems, passive crossovers allow distribution of specific frequency ranges to each respective driver. This allows each driver to present the sound it is specifically manufactured for, reducing overall harmonic distortion and allowing the audio engineer to tune the tonal signature of the device.
The true 5-way crossover networking consists of 11 independent passive components, carefully engineered to deliver a natural and balanced tonal signature. The Prestige is our most advanced crossover engineering so far.
Reference Tuning with Reference Technicalities
The Prestige has been acoustically engineered to deliver a reference studio monitor-like sound signature. The total sound is uncolored, and is deliberately designed for stage and studio monitoring. Featuring a flat midrange, the mids are neither warm nor sterile, representing a true and natural tone.
The sub-bass has been dedicated to a 250Hz shelf to present authoritative and robust impact, but without compromising the overall sound signature. The highlight of the Prestige is its treble and ultra-treble extension, which delivers airy-treble unlike anything we have produced so far. This extension allows every micro-detail to be heard, but remains natural sounding to the ear, as we focused on its extension, rather than a peaky quantity of treble. Use of paramount driver quality and our innovative 5-way crossover network allows unparalleled audio resolution, comparable to the world’s best speakers and headphones.
Medical Grade Resin Housing
Each Prestige unit is individually handmade by our dedicated engineers. The housing is constructed from 3D-printed medical-grade resin, which is safe on the skin and durable. The shell structure has been based off of the V16 Divinity, which was popular for its ergonomic fit and comfort during long listening sessions. Additionally, each faceplate of the Prestige is individually decorated and coated, presenting a truly bespoke experience.
The Prestige stock cable maintains the ultra-pure 6N OCC silver-plated and graphene silver-plated cable in Litz structure , but the additional strand incorporation gives it a slightly meatier feel and a richer sound. Most significantly, this new stock cable features the proprietary "Smart Switch", a new modular plug design, allowing you to choose between 4.4mm balanced, 2.5mm balanced and 3.5mm unbalanced terminations, simply by swapping out the plug ends. This reduces the need for bulky adaptors, giving your setup a more complete look and feel. The 2-pin connectors on the stock cable are also updated to provide a more secure fit with your IEMs.

I often fatigue within a few songs of listening to my Focal Elear's regardless of EQ settings if I wanted the volume to feel "satisfying", so I was a bit worried about finding the Prestige set to be painful on my ears without significant EQ in the treble. I found this was not the case at all - with only a slight boost to the ~2k area, I find myself only restricting volume due to long term health concerns rather than immediate ear irritation that happens with some other sets. But the treble is much better than simply being non-offensive, it is handled with an amazing level of detail and punchiness I had not experienced until now. Mids and lows are handled quite competently as well and meet any expectations I would have for the price point, but the way the treble is handled is definitely the thing that makes this set stand out. Some audio gear's level of resolution can come at the cost of subjectively degrading enjoyment of amateurly produced or intentionally lo-fi music, but some mix of the tuning and technical proficiency of the Prestige allows it to capture all the hi-fi microdetails I've ever heard out of tracks while being forgiving to lower quality mastering, showing it at its best rather than making shortcomings in production quality the focus of the listening experience.
When picking out a high-end IEM, it felt a bit risky choosing one with so few professional & customer reviews such as the Prestige, but the only possible gripe I have had with it in my time with it is the nozzle size. With MDR-7550's as my travel pair spoiling me with super thin nozzles to make for a 0-fatigue fit, the Prestige is less generous in contrast, but still comfortable enough for hours of uninterrupted listening.
In short, well tuned out the box but responds well to EQ, very technically solid across the board but shines most in the treble and most importantly pleasing to use for my entire music library. My daily driver around the house for the foreseeable future.
Depending on the source, the iems do sound very different. Sometimes it is musical/analog and others it is neutral. There isnt as much bass without added boost from equalizer settings that I would like. So I am searching for a TOTL tribrid with 2 dynamic bass units. Overall, the fit is fine.
The supplied multi-ended cable is lacking in design and was replaced by a 4.4 terminated cable. Can then cable roll to make sound more pleasing to my ears. Went with Cu/Silver composite.
Overall a decent iem just wish there was more bass
Premium earphones, design and cable.
Compared to the Monarch MKII, soundstage isn't as wide and it isn't as detailed. But the fit is much better and more comfortable. The treble is extended and clean. The bass is extremely pleasing to the ears.
Monarch MK2 is the Relax one with a softer Bass,good Mids,magical Vocals and Silky Highs.
Prestige is a different way.
More stunning Bass/Slam and Ultra clean Highs.More lively and Energetic.
(Faceplatt looks really good and the Fit is awesome)
