Oriolus Traillii JP UIEM
Our Price | $8,888
The hybrid formula has been repeated over and over, so it's remarkable how Oriolus blazed the trail they did with the Traillii JP. This 12-driver, electrostatic and balanced armature UIEM commands the statement, flagship, segment.
Transparency is easy to achieve this days, but Traillii JP delivers a whole other X-factor – enough to make the niche its own. A whole, out-of-head, experience awaits. The air, separation and soundstage belies the physics of an IEM. Traillii JP delivers sound that appears as if it's coming beyond the confines of its shell.
Perhaps it's apt that Oriolus is inspired by the avian maroon oriole species. Traillii JP's sound is free as a bird, in the most acoustically transparent presentation known in Head-Fi – more so than even fabled electrostatic earspeakers, in which the cup enclosure can still be heard, if ever so subtly.
Traillii JP breaks boundaries, and the four electrostatic tweeters have something to do with it. Supported by a 21ohm crossover that will work off anything, excellent SPL is derived from the comparatively insensitive Sonion ESTs.
That promises abundant treble quantity, and beyond, quantity. They supply a treble presence that is ever-so-sweet, immersing you within the soundscape. Imaging is as you'd expect, with PW Audio 1960 4W cabling bringing you the cable maker's famed soundstage and image precision.
It's a theatre effect unheard in IEMs, and Traillii JP's rumbling sub-bass does nothing to hurt that out-of-head presentation. Subtle impact and rumble is judged in the perfect quantity, and the most intricate bore design ensures the crossover delivers all frequencies to your ears in perfect phase and harmony.
Cohesiveness is Traillii JP's strongest suit, and it has to be heard to be believed. Once exposed, you'll never go back, and you'll never tire of it either – Headfonics attested it "really shocked me for a long while, and soon became my favourite IEM". About Audio lauded its gigantic staging and endgame performance.
Twister6 were drawn to Traillii JP's "quad-EST highs [that] are very natural and still airy and resolving ... on top of that you get a big holographic soundstage", but over time couldn't help but refer to the performance of this status symbol as a whole, the sum of its 12 drivers bass to treble.
