“ Do not buy these. They sound good, true. But with the price they ask? NO! Better sounding alternatives are available at over hakf the price of this! Sound quality is good, but the sound it gives for the prices is just crap. I expect something better for $60 IEM's. ” --Ezio
“I've used several earphones by several companies and at price points ranging from $50-$400 but I use these while commuting by train in Tokyo. I bought mine in Japan for ￥4500 or about $50 retail after listening to them after having read in Hi-Fi + magazine. I tried various earphones at the store but failed to find a pair that surpassed them at the price point. I prefer a crisp...” --gdbk
“Overall Impressions I had big expectations when i bought it about 5 years ago, in my very young eyes it looked cool. Because back in the day you did not see that many earphones with the around the ear design. (not in South Africa at lest) They are comfortable to an extent, i give you that much. Although even having the around the ear design and it came with a couple of...” --LeoTheAwesome

In FAD-speak: "Piano Forte IX archived to produce space expression which bring atmosphere of live hall and a sense of reality of concert hall which is difficult to be produced by conventional earphones. Piano Forte Ⅸ has a stainless body with a mirror-polished finish. Its classy look mirrors a high-precision sound that retains the trueness of the recorded source."
“ Hi Guys, this is my second review on a new earphone, just in time that my friend is looking for a good earphone, I was recommend him to look for this Final Audio Design brand. He loves detail, clarity type of earphone, and mostly enjoys vocal, acoustic music type. And hey!! He picked a final audio adagio V!! I didn’t expect this will happen, but well, i got his...” --SpringBiscuit
