A MATURE SOUND
The Elixir project aims to achieve one principal goal – capture the spirit and emotion of the sound while maintaining a natural tonality that stays true to the recording. The latest driver innovations and acoustic engineering strategies have made possible incredible audio resolution that resonates with an analog texture unique only to the playback from the Elixir. Intended more for luxurious listening sessions rather than stage performances, the Elixir is the audiophile’s dream of a personal vintage sound system.
3-DIMENSIONAL VELOCITY TRANSDUCER
The soul of the Elixir lies within its newly developed 3-Dimensional Velocity Transducer. A completely innovative driver unique from traditional dynamic drivers, the 3D Velocity Transducer diaphragm is composed of beryllium-coated interweaving layers of multi-walled carbon nanotube sheets, which creates an extremely dense and rigid membrane capable of higher tensions and resulting in more responsiveness.
The internal structure of the driver is also novel, utilizing stronger pole magnets and a completely copper voice coil actuator, unlike traditional aluminum ones used in most dynamic driver assemblies.
These features create an extremely enhanced level of audio resolution that transparently reveal the detailed nuances within each note. Moreover, these uncompromising driver components relay a texture within the sound that is completely unique in typical in-ear headphones, which can only be described as vintage and analog.
BALANCED AND NATURAL TONALITY
The Elixir has been meticulously tuned to deliver a natural and balanced sound that is free of any harsh abnormalities or lacking at any frequency interval. This meant the treble had to be detailed and resolving, without introducing any resemblance of piercing or shrill metallic timbre. Following the now well-established natural decay curvature found in all of THIEAUDIO’s signature series in-ear monitors, the Elixir’s upper frequencies deliver a smooth yet precise relay of every miniscule detail in the music.
