Very interesting design but I just can't see how a BA can produce enough volume to make a difference without it being inserted into the ear. If I take one of my IEM's and put it on blast just mm from my ear they don't sound very good but I guess FAD has found a way to give there's the volume and heft to be effective.
They definitely did and the BA gives a real "pop" to details and micro details, and overall clarity and transparency. How they managed to do without any crossover is a puzzle as that means both driver are covering the full spectrum. I think the way the BA is positioned (very close to the ear) is also a factor.
Whatever magic they've worked out, I love the combination of a dynamic and BA driver here.
Also remember their BAs are custom made it's not the BAs you find everywhere.
They sound more open than my SRH1840 oO
