THIEAUDIO Prestige 4EST + 4BA + 1DD Flagship In-Ear Monitor
- 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.
