A few weeks ago I was perusing the forums here on head fi when I came across a topic about these new Final Audio Headphones. Linked to jaben.net, I started reading up and became intrigued. Being an earbud man,not the inner ear style.I began investigating and asking questions, finally I decided to purchase mid last week the day they were released.
Lets keep this short
-Soundstage is massive, bigger than the Mx980 in terms of tallness but about the same as the mx880 in width, it is very forward and much more enjoyable, and VERY NATURAL sounding that is both very tall and very wide,
-Depth in stage is unlike any earbuds Ive ever heard of this style, its sublime. Separation is amazing.
-Vocals are ASTOUNDING and bar none the best ive EVER heard in any style earbud.
-Presentation is dry, its very airy sounding with loads of space between everything. It is not as colored as the PK1, but its also nowhere near as neutral as the MX980
-Comfort is pretty good and if you can snip a tiny hole on a set of unused pads, do it. It helps a little. They stood in place all day. I worked out with them, hitting a punching bag with kicks and punches and it didn't budge in the slightest.
-It is bass light, sorry fellas it doesnt have anywhere near the level of bass the mx880 or 980 have. Its very airy and thin.
-Highs and mids are clear and natural sounding and unlike any bud of this style I've ever tried.
-They are easily driven by a clip or fuze, no amp needed but im sure it would improve even more with one
-Not as punchy or sparkled as the pk1, but not at all lacking.
Overall, its an amazing set of earbuds. Im beyond impressed and I will not be rebuying my beloved MX980s. I much prefer this sound and presentation over the mx980 BY A LARGE FACTOR! They are not as clean as the mx980 though. Build quality is on the same level as the Mx580, it feels very similar. The stage is beyond impressive. Im stunned, its not that far away from the mx980, its definitely on par with the mx880 and exceeds it in a few areas, and lacks in a few compared to it as well. I enjoy this set much more than the Mx980s as well as the new sunrise Charms and the OK1.
9.5/10 Amazing set, if it had a little more bass, id quit my job and go sell this set on the street to people and make insane money once word spreads that they sound this great
