REVIEW: Fischer Audio FA-011 - OFF THE DEEP END!! - Page 5

post #61 of 2077

I was going to purchase a Fiio E9 with my plans to purchase the FA-011, not too sure if rest of head-fi agrees

Fiio E9 seems like a good idea, and they're coming with e15 soon that has the same power but its amp/dac i believe

As a basshead and someone who is very interested in the FA-011, could you elaborate a bit further on these cans' low end?  If it extends deep and is tight and textured, that is awesome, but if it has similar quantity and impact as the HD650, it is hardly a headphone for bass lovers.

 

Thanks.


I mention the HD650 as a basshead can in the sense of how low it goes (quality) not in how much it puts out (quantity). The HD650 was the only headphone until now that could properly play one of my demo tracks. The FA-011 plays it extraordinarily well in both quality and quantity. The bass extends very low, yet remains tight and detailed.

1) What is the tension like on the headband area? Somewhat tight like a new K701? Or more loose?

 

2) How are the materials as far as quality? Specifically interested in the "fork" that holds the wood part. Plastic I assume? How is the build quality compared to say the FA-003?

 

Thanks in advance, I'm sure more people would like this info than just me.


1) The tension on the headband is almost non-existent. It just floats on your noggin! Like I said before...the MOST comfortable headphone I have in my possession.

 

2) The fork that holds the wood part looks like metal but is indeed plastic. The build quality IMHO feels excellent...very comparable to the FA-003.

High end sound doesn't mean it has to cost an arm and a leg. This is one of the reasons I like Fischer Audio so much...they put out serious quality at an unbelievable price point. A new product for them doesn't equate to a higher price tag than an existing product just because it's new.

LOL! wink_face.gif

 

You know me...always spreading the word on what I think is good...be it a CD, LP or any related playback gear!

Hey LFF, any info on where you got your pair and if they're still for sale?

By the way, this is the only site where I have seen them offered, so far (bugdenaudio.com and treoo.com don't show them on their sites)...
 

 


Yeah, seems that they are the only retailer online that I could find. Right now would be a great opportunity for online headphone retailers to work out agreements to sell Fischer products in the US. I've been trying to push a local audio supplier out of the Houston area to offer them, as Fischer Audio per my guesstimations, should blow up pretty soon...and I'm assuming the pricing will follow suit. I'm a firm believer in these guys.

Fantastic review! Love it

post #70 of 2077

Dang, grats to those who got in on the latest preorder just now. They sold out in less than 30 minutes!

post #71 of 2077

Not sure if you have heard the latest HD558/598 but they are my current open back champs in the $120-$170 range.  Any thoughts on how the 011 might compare? sounds like they would be more 'fun' but I'm curious how they would compare in resolution, clarity, imaging and such.

Argh, I saw the email too late, it went to my junk folder for some reason. Please, someone tell me they're getting more in.
post #73 of 2077

Of course they are. This is a brand new model of headphone from Fischer.

post #74 of 2077

I'm very curious on this comparison as well.

Actually they sold out in less then 10min. I ordered as soon as I saw the email about in stock. Right after I was done putting in my Visa details it said 1 in stock left haha. I'm a little worried that its shipping from Russia, never have bought anything from over seas before.

 

Oh and first post!
