The Journey of THIEAUDIO High-end IEMs
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. We are proud to present two top-of-the-line signature series In-Ear Monitors - the Monarch and the Clairvoyance
Signature Series: Monarch & Clairvoyance.
Gathering the momentum from the success of the Thieaudio Phantom planar magnetic headphones, and the Voyager and Legacy series In-Ear Monitors (IEM’s), the two new monitors 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
Monarch - King of the IEM’s
From the tuning to the technical capabilities, the Monarch was designed to bring out the best that In-Ear Monitors can offer. The sound signature had to be analytical to bring about precision and a reference-style tuning. This necessitated a linear midrange section which would place all instruments balanced with one another and provide an overall clean and lean sound The mid-treble transition peaks at the inner ear canal resonance point and is sustained through the entire upper frequency range to maximize detail retrieval and overtone presence. Yet, careful attention was placed in making the trebles smooth and void of sharp peaks or dips to eliminate any uncomfortable upper harmonic irregularities. We find the Monarch to be among the few IEM’s on the market to truly and cohesively integrate the balanced armature and EST drivers in a manner that shines forth the best of their potentials The Monarch stands as Thieaudio’s best display of technological and sonic innovation and is ready to redefine the musical standard for In-Ear Monitors. On the other end of the spectrum, a 10mm dynamic driver and multi-balanced armature woofers have been implemented to bring about a punchy subbass impact. The lowpass point was selected below 150Hz to create an even cleaner midrange section, while still allowing a powerful subbass to lay down the foundation y
Thieaudio was launched in 2019 as a creative endeavor of Linsoul Audio. 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! In reality, the utilization of this driver configurations 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. Pairing the EST driver with a newly developed biopolymer dynamic driver and traditional balanced armatures, we have styled two unique IEM’s. The Monarch focuses on a precise treble response with extreme detail retrieval and high level of clarity. It is an exceptional candidate for a CIEM (Custom In-Ear Monitor) fit due to its characteristic sound signature. The Clairvoyance emphasizes a natural tonality with a powerful subbass and a smoother treble section. A re-envisioning of the popular Harman curve, the Clairvoyance emphasizes a clean sound with an impactful subbass and extended high frequencies. Both models are ideal for any circumstance in which uncompromising tonality and technicality are needed, and we could not be prouder to present the pinnacle of Thieaudio’s engineerin
