I have tried every single pair of the current STAX Electrostatic Headphones. These IEM's are better then everything i tried. The fit is so perfect. The sound is pure bliss. I feel like i just went to heaven.
Once you start to add up all the facts, things like the build being something that can fit most ears vs the Monarch Mk2. The fact that the Oracle Mk2 lifts the veiled signature the Monarch mk2 has. Has the same perfect mids, the best treble extension of ESt driver implementation ever put in a IEM. The sub bass which is absolutely perfect, the tonality and timbre which is so real along with that amazing soundstage and imaging …and the cost is just under $600. I can’t see a need for anything more. It’s the first IEM that I have that blows my mind every moment of the day I spend with it and feels as great in my ears as it sounds. I’m seriously missing nothing for the first time in my audiophile life for IEM. There is no compromise or small thing I wish it did better. It’s as perfect as made made tech item can ever be.
For me, the perfect upgrade. A bit more harumph in the low end, perfect mids, and some air up too. Much better fit for my grappling mangled ears.
