Review! Fischer Audio's FA-004 - Page 13

post #181 of 234

hey guys, so i just ordered the incipio f38. just wondering if it would be similar sounding to the fa004

post #182 of 234

The Brainwavz HM3 has been known to be the same as the FA-004. I have compared the HM3 against the Incipio F38 and found that they sounded the same. The headband is slightly different and the headphone pads are very slightly different, but the sound is unchanged.

Any difference in build quality between the HM3 and the F38? Which one do you prefer?

Between the two? I personally prefer the HM3s VERY slightly just because the pads are a bit more firm. The only differences I found between the two is that the headband is full pleather on the HM3s and the F38 has this kind of cloth mesh on the headband and the pad difference.

You can see the mesh on here. Both of them are basically the same on comfort level.

Just ordered my FA-004's from Frogbeats, they should be with me tomorrow - I have great expectations! smily_headphones1.gif

They only had white special edition FA-004's with coiled cable, hope they come in the zip-up soft case I've seen the other special editions in. I'll post a photo or two when they get here, can't wait - LOL.

Oh Boy,

 

Well my FA-004's arrived from Frogbeats this morning, I wasn't disappointed !!

Talk about value for money, £47.95; I'd been more than happy if I had spent £150

Gorgeous!  Certainly more swagged out my barebones design/package from nearly two years ago.. I've always loved FA's design & artistic sensibilities.. they deliver again with the refreshed 004.  The art on the cups looks awesome & the pads look updated (more comfy).

 

Might have to think about buying these.. again.

Flysweep, I can't guarrantee that the standard FA-004's come with the case etc. I purchased them from Frogbeats in the UK. I happened to spot on there website that these were 'Special Edition White Versions'.

http://shop.frogbeats.com/fischer-audio-fa-004/

Not a mention of them on Fischer Audio's main site, grab a pair whilst you can because I doubt they'll be in stock for long. For the record I have no connection / affiliation to Frogbeats other than being a happy customer.

Can anyone say how these compare to the akg k271? The white ones look fantastic!!!
post #191 of 234

Now I am jealous as the leather on those looks much higher quality and looks a lot more comfortable. Do you ever feel like the speakers are touching your ears with those?

post #192 of 234
Hi Skafle,

They come with three differing pads, one white pleather (low profile, non perforated), one brown velour of medium depth (best IMO) & one set of brown pleather (deepest depth of all three, perforated).

All the pads I reckon would cover the biggest of ears, the only one that allows my ear to touch the speaker is the low profile white pleather ones. Personally I reckon the white pads just look wrong on the FA-004's anyway, too much white; the brown pads look much better .

Cheers

Mark

Heard the Fischer audio FA-003 and impressed, but they are a little too heavy for me. These may do the trick, what compromise would the FA-004 made as compared with FA-003 exactly ?

post #194 of 234

hey guys i tore the foam covering the drivers of my "incipio f38", and it seems more detailed/clear/open with male vocal and acoustic guitar, havent tried other genres yet but oh well lol no turning back. any more succesful mods to add? like puting stuff to make it more detailed, tight bass and isolation?

The new version of the FA-004 does not disappoint with packaging at all does it! Heres my unboxing video:
