REVIEW: Fischer Audio FA-006 - Baby Brother To The FA-003....Antithesis To The Beats! - Page 9

post #121 of 133


Nice indeed, but wish they could be more consistent with the build quality of their parts - the wood enclosures are lovely, the headband looks cheap.  Odd contrast.

well, our competitors making our life more interesting again. That's how FA-006 will look since now

That looks very good but I am just interested in what FA did with the FA-006s -they look like OEM Yogas. Different drivers?

 

So FA basically confirmed the Renkforce is the same headphone as the FA-006? If that's the case, the Renkforce suddenly becomes one of the best value headphones around...

In a round about sort of way yes, it appears they have.  And yes indeed - I guess that makes the Renkforce an even better deal.

"FA006...Antithesis to the Beats." Yes, it's true. But sadly, very sadly, it is also antithesis to all the great flat headphones.

This headphone heavily distorts the music. see this: http://goldenears.net/board/1869073

First, it's in Korean. The Translate is botched beyond recognition. Second, have you actually heard this headphone? If you haven't, your post is completely useless. If you have, can YOU hear the distortion? Because I can't. And I listen to it pretty often.

To be honest, when I first listened to them with the foam pads on... I hated them.  And I'd be inclined to agree with your link.  But without I think it's a pretty cool sounding headphone - seems quite a nice accurate reproduction to me.

 

I'm sad FA simply took and rebranded something so cheap, though.

Need some help!!! I can't seem to be able to order Renkforce from Conrad Electronics and have them shipped to U.S. Also Frogbeats is already discontinued carrying FA-006, (probably waiting for retooled FA-006). The only vendor for the FA-006 right now seems to be GD-Audiobase (I will not order from them since I had with payments being processed properly on a headphone last year). I wish Fischer would get a reliable seller and distributor for North America. Any suggestions on possibly purchasing the FA-006 somewhere else and/or Renkforce. Thanks for help, Happy Listening.

I've got my Renkforce CD-340 (FA-006) and MC Crypt DJ-50 (FA-004) both from Conrad. I did read on the Fischer Audio Facebook that they're revamping the FA-006, so it should be available again soon.

Which one will be better for most types of music Sony ZX700 or this Fischer's 006? My source is Samsung Q2

Get the Sony's. They are amazing headphones. You can put shure 840 pads on them for more comfort too. They're also very portable.

I just got renkforce cd-340. I'm very impressed by the sound considering the price. Indeed very similar to fa-003. My only complaint is the sweaty and bit uncomfortable pads. I tried the fa-003 pads. Even though those pads are oval they can be fitted. Comfort increased but it also made the bass bit boomy. Then I remembered I had pair of byerdynamic dt770 pads. It's a perfect fit. I removed the foam covering the driver...thought beyers foam cover and the original one would be too much. Now these things sound awesome! Sound is very airy and I keep forgetting these are not open headphones. Propably the most open sounding closed headphones I've heard. I can't believe the detail either. I have akg k701 and with renkforce I've heard things I've never heard before. It's a cliche but it's true. Allready wide soundstage got wider and treble is more lively. Highs are now very similar to dt770 but it's not a beyer style V shaped soundsignature. These are still neutral headphones, beyer pads just add that little something that makes music more enjoyable for me.  Takstar 2050 feels like a budget version of sennheiser hd600 and now these are definately budget version of k701. I've have many good cheap headphones but I really didn't expect cd-340+dt770 pads combo to be this good :) It's a shame these are hard to get in the US. Maybe Vivanco sr 480 hd would be more easily accessable there. It seems to be the same headphone.

Got these babies today, quite impressed! Sound is warm, nice and pleasant - ideal for classic rock, jazz etc. Not as good in modern genres (metal, electronic), but i don't care. My previous headphones were Soundmagic P30 (too dull and muffled for my taste), Takstar 2050 (ear-piercing sound, too much treble) and Koss UR40 (super-comfortable, but sound dissapointed me after Porta Pro's, again - too much treble for me) - so FA-006 takes first place for home-listening phones. What i didn't like: they press quite hard on my head, and earcups could be bigger

Decide to make them open cans, removed plastic pieces and replaced them with cushions from $5 Sven phones :D

Sexy look and sound improved a bit :happy_face1:
