Thieaudio Prestige LTD 1DD + 4BA + 4EST Tribrid




The Technical Prowess of the Prestige with A More Comfortable Tuning

The original Prestige debuted one of the best utilizations of the electrostatic (EST) driver in the IEM market. With a sustained EST output from 10kHz until 20kHz, the Prestige demonstrated the full potential of the EST driver and the treble extension that it could achieve in the IEM format. However, the high ultra-treble output could strain some listeners. For this reason, we have modified the EST drivers used in the Prestige LTD to achieve a more pleasant listening experience. The Prestige LTD features the same treble-extension capacity as the original Prestige, with near constant output from 10kHz to 20kHz. However, the high peaks at 12kHz and 15kHz have been eliminated by smoothing out the extension. In this manner, you can experience the same level of airy atmosphere, micro-detail, and hyper-realism of the Prestige, but without the treble strain.


9 Drivers, 3 Driver Types, 5-Way Crossover

Like the original Prestige, the Prestige LTD features the same extensive and comprehensive engineering strategy. 4 Sonion electrostatic drivers + 2 Knowles mid-treble balanced armatures + 2 Sonion low-mid balanced armatures + 10mm dynamic subwoofer are used per each side of the Prestige LTD. With an over-engineered 5-way crossover tuning strategy, the Prestige provides extreme layering and texture across the whole spectrum.


More Balanced Sound Signature

The Prestige LTD has a slightly modified tonal signature compared to its predecessor. With modifications to the 10mm Dynamic Driver, the bass shelf has been tightened to 200Hz. With a better controlled and tighter bass, the sub-bass impact is more focused and faster, helping create a cleaner overall sound signature. Thieaudio’s classic flat mids are retained in the Prestige LTD to achieve a professional studio-monitor accurate sound. Besides the smoothing of the ultra-treble, the upper mids and trebles have also been cleaned up to provide a more natural treble curvature. In sum, the Prestige LTD provides a more listener-friendly sound signature that is easier to enjoy, while staying true to its professional technical capacities.


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.


Premium Cable

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.
