post #3286 of 6702

honestly, i thought i saw the heaven 2 last month. it was there but i didn't even motivate myself to try it. Guess having heaven 6 for too long did pamper you too much. LOL.

 

But FWIW, i can say the build is solid, just that the acoustic filter isn't really a pleasing sight to behold.

Also I don't know if he's reading this but @vwinter - the 2ch people couldn't dig much else up on that front. Someone did recall someone else mentioning Molex and FAD before, so I might have to dig through third-party site archives and logs when I get the time.

 

Actually I did post a diagram of the Pandora a few pages back but here's the link to where I found them: https://www.finalaudio.nl/nl/producten/pandora-hope-series.html

woodcans, why don't you add those fantastic photos of your PF IX into the PF-IX Head-fi Profile. Let's make people drool over PF IX! LOL.

When people search for it and encountered the profile, they'll be stunned!

Dont quote european prices, they are always much more due to high VAT.

If there's one thing I've learned over the years dealing with FAD, it's not to jump the gun and assume something is released just because one source says so (even if that source is an "official" website). Looking at those listings for the Pandora series on FAD.nl, I'd hold off pulling the trigger even when they say delivery in 4 to 6 days. There's zero mention of the Pandora lineup on the official official FAD site (final-audio-design.com), and contacting several distributors no one has any definitive idea of when the Pandoras will be released exactly. The models are no doubt ready for green lighting, as they've been showing up at trade shows and are being sent to reviewers soon supposedly, but when it comes to FAD you really can't be too sure. They're one of the most frustrating companies I've ever encountered when it comes to trying to source reliable information.

 

Consider their last headphone, the Muramasa VIII. I was one of the folks who pre-ordered one last year, and boy do I have quite a story 'bout that experience (dealing directly with FAD Taiwan). Let's just say I'd wait this time around.

teasers from Jaben Network. Apparently they're ready to kick start it, since Takai-san's visit to Singapore moment ago.

Hi,

 

can someone give some suggestions in choosing a new pair of iem's. I can't seem to decide between the FAD Heaven V or VI or if you think there are any others I should be looking at. The V would be a cheaper option though. I had just created a thread and any help would be greatly appreciated  http://www.head-fi.org/t/686867/need-help-choosing-a-new-pair-of-iems#post_9910882

 

Thanks.

My god, that looks beautiful... It seems like they've tweaked the design of the earcups from the earlier prototypes and I've gotta say, they look even more gorgeous now.

It's true, but are there internet stores with international shipping services that sells FADs for $$?
