Fischer Audio FA-011 Limited Edition owners and appreciation thread - Page 7

post #91 of 129

The 011 has the resistors to filter the frequencies very much like how a crossover works to negate rolloff's for speakers.

Might be the reason why it sounds (interacts) so different with solid state and tube amps. It's almost a chameleon like a transformation.

True that so I'm not sure I would want to leave out the resistor network.

I picked one of these up from a fellow headfier. Iroko 5/10.

 

There are a few similarities between these and the Grado PS*** series headphones. The bass is certainly interesting and bit addicting at least for certain types of heavier rock music. Anyone with these should check out Spirit Caravan for some seriously fat guitar.  Not too shabby with EDM, but I feel I need a bigger soundstage for that.

Hey guys - a possible "Non Limited Edition version" purchase of the FA 11s got me researching this, and I've found you guys. I was happy to fork out the relatively small amount for the non LEs, but seeing you guys rave about the LEs almost made me not want to buy a Fostex 900 for another month or two and jump in with you guys. 

The only thing stopping me is the Fostex is a sound I know I'll like, vs the FA11s which I've never heard. As much as I want to because it's limited. 

 

I've started a thread on Limited Edition Headphones here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/699196/best-limited-edition-headphones

 

And I listed the FA 11s based on your awesome reviews. As I don't own one, I was wondering you guys would be keen on jumping aboard and contributing? =)

Now I'm interested in these, but I see there is now two types of FA-011LE. A Japan version and another version? I cannot audition being in Newcastle, wondering if anyone eventually listens to both if they could tell me the differences.

Where did you hear about the Japanese version? Can you share a link?

I think he's talking about these: http://www.musicaacoustics.com/wp/headphones/fa-011/

Here's also an article about them in russian: http://appleinsider.ru/obzory-zheleza/obzor-naushnikov-fischer-audio-fa-011-limited-edition-japan.html

 

Looking at the pictures, they seem use a different plug. And if google translate is to trust, it seems that only 15 copies have been made and they've all been made/tuned by one guy. I do doubt though that they sound noticeably different from the "normal" limited edition.
