The Oracle was the Mecca for audiophiles and audio engineers requiring perfect tonal accuracy and precision.
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.
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.
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.
Three driver types, Three-way Crossover
Oracle MKII by implements 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.
The benefit of the Sonion electrostatic (EST) drivers is the enhanced ultra-treble frequency delivery. However, many manufacturers fail to properly integrate the low sensitivity of these drivers into their IEM’s, resulting in barely audible improvements. THIEAUDIO has always been known for their exquisite utilization of the EST driver, delivering actual treble extensions that can be experienced. The Oracle MKII is no exception, featuring one of the best ultra-treble extensions in not only THIEAUDIO history, but among all manufacturers globally. Our calculated integration of the EST driver fully enhances the frequency spectrum to 40kHz, with audible improvements in detail, air, speed.
Intended for long sessions on the stage and in the studio, the physical size of the Oracle MKII has been reduced for a more comfortable and secure fit inside the ears. Constructed from imported medical-grade UV resin, the Oracle MKII is durable, comfortable, and free of allergens or irritants.
The Oracle MKII comes standard with THIEAUDIO’s new and improved modular cable, allowing easy plug swapping between 3.5mm, 4.4mm, and 2.5mm jacks. This 26AWG 5N OCC Silver Plated Litz Cable is constructed using one of the highest quality wires and will ensure a clear audio transmission.
