Greetings everyone.

We have decided to remove the custom options for THIEAUDIO Monarch and Clairvoyance till further notice, as we will be focusing on our current orders and mainly UIEMs for the time being.

For those who have already placed their CIEM orders before today, your orders will still be processed accordingly.

Others who still wish to purchase our UIEMs may visit our website:

If I could actually buy the Monarch in the U.S., I would. But sending $700 overseas and then waiting a month? Ain't gonna happen. Not if they are the absolute best iem ever made.

Yes, please...have your production efficiency (speed x quality) at your first priority. I'm still waiting on my order LINSOUL-XX202126460 for almost a month, with no update or whatsoever.

I read that Headphones.com has been getting them in stock. They had a few this week that sold out immediately. Might be good to get on their wait list if they have one.

Me, I knew what I was getting into when I ordered. I'll just be patient. Hopefully mine will come soon.

Same here, my bets are on the table, Monarch could be actually one of the best IEM, at least for its sub-bass that's what I see from the impressions.

Emailed them to ask for an eta, and got no response. No waiting list. Must pre-order and pay in full. With no clue when they might arrive. I don't do business that way. For anything.

i suggest checking them periodically. i ordered clairvoyance a week or so ago and they shipped out the same day. just make sure it is in stock and not pre order by using the filters and u’ll be good.

early bird gets the worm as always

I might have done if I could cancel at any time prior to them shipping. They had been getting them in, so it might end up being the shortest time to delivery. Making a payment assures you place in line while you seek alternatives of getting it sooner. If you get it somewhere else, then cancel your headphones.com order.

Nope. Even directly from Linsoul it's a month wait. I have lived without zmfs just fine for the same reason. Drop too. To earn my business, the bare minimum is to have actual inventory available for purchase. No single product is worth giving up money for delivery at an unknown time. I'll always have earphones, but they will never have my money. C'est la vie.

the next best option is to buy on the resale market. That's what I did to get a ZMF VC and I love it. Got it within a week.

The monarchs and Clairvoyance go for sale used occasionally, but they don't last long.

Hey guys, Alan from Headphones.com here. We got a small shipment in both the Monarch and Clairvoyance in this week they we were able to fill all our pre-orders and had some extra to have for our stock which both sold out in the same day. With Chinese New Year this month, it has been slow going in terms of anything out of China.

We have had a number of folks pre-order the Monarch and Clairvoyance and then hit us up to change to other models which we had in stock that we had no issue swapping to. China goes into around a month slowdown every year and just takes them a little time to get back up and rolling. The Thieaudio has been super popular for good reason and we are proud to support the Monarch and Clairvoyance.

Me personally, on an unrelated note I have had a ton of trouble so far getting new pc parts this year which was only exacerbated by Chinese New Year.

FWIW, and I know it annoys some buyers having to wait, I actually appreciate ThieAudio being so careful from a QA perspective in the production of the Twins. Better that than just trying to rush them out the door like the vast amount of other makers would do. At least a buyer now knows in advance of the long wait, and can make an informed decision. If you don't want to wait, understandable, but as a consumer, I appreciate the extra care taken in this case.
