    Final Audio Design Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I love all my finals, the fi-ba-ss, Heaven VIII and Lab1. Lab1 is most extended though. Fi-ba-ss is kinda like my HD800s and Heaven VIII is lush and warm. I use them all with comply tips.

    I have the lab 1, fibass and VIII. I like them all in their own place. Often I choose the VIII over the other two.

    If I didn't have one I'd go for that price too.

    I have all of those except px. Fibass sounds more like an open headphone very raw and bass is light due to the openness. Heaven the VIII is more brassy and fulll but less detail and open sound/less separation but still good. Lab1 has more extension than either and you can see the possibilities...

    The AK320 thread

    Good to know. The reason i didn't do the 240 was that even at the introduction price when it was released at a meet, I still didn't want to spend that kind of money on something that wasn't really geared to my system. Still a problem. I may think about it but at just below $2000. I would feel...

    The AK320 thread

    Question- my AK120 is geared toward iOS whereas I recall the AK240 was geared toward android. That was the death blow for me getting the 240. Now my 120 is approaching limited life and curious, is the AK320 android based or iOS?

    The Astell & Kern AK120

    Yeah, Vinnie can replace it if I can find a battery. It is not dead, just doesn't hold charge for as long anymore and I was getting worried so thought I'd look into it. I am using two 200gb cards which chant help matters. I put one in to go with the 128 I had, then switched out the 128 fo the...

    Just reminded of how incredible the fibass can be in my listening today. I am actually speechless.

    Those are not lab type earphones. Those are the piano forte type.

    The B pad. They are shallow and get uncomfortable after a while though.

    Chord Hugo

    I agree with much of this except Not much. I own both and to me the difference is big. Hugo is clear and detailed with incredible soundstage and dynamics whereas the Mojo is warm sounding that masks the lack of detail and more inclosed sounding. I like them both and use the Mojo more due to...

    I have taken my shure pads off and gone back to my upgraded Final pads. Even though the shure are more comfortable(which is important)I have decided it isn't worth the sonic cost.

    Final Audio Design Impressions and Discussion Thread

    It may slightly, but it is worth it because with the normal tips they droop out of my ear. The Sony hybrids change the sound too dramatically so I don't use them. I started with a pair of fibass and they were a little too shrill with the stock tips so I went through several. They Complys do tone...

    I have Complys on all three of my Final iems.

    Final Audio Design Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I was told that it is made specifically for AK players due to the AK's sterile sound. Gives a warmer gentler sound. I was warned against it unless specifically paired with AK by a final source, I have an AK player but now exclusively pair it with mojo or Hugo so strike with normal fibass.

    There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Hugo is better and I use them both daily with a variety of upper tier headphones. Different league completely. That said, the size difference makes the Mojo just so much easier portable and the cost variation makes it less of a risk to carry...

    The legendary FINAL LAB I earphone returns – VERY limited production run.

    Lab1 is way better than the heaven 8 to my ears but I haven't heard the 7. The lab seems like it is less limited of a frequency range in direct omparisons to both the 8 and fibass. Probably due to dual driver.

    The legendary FINAL LAB I earphone returns – VERY limited production run.

    Well I like them much better than my customs from a few years back. Those are JH audio which now cost more than these. In addition I understand the process to make the Lab1 is pretty intensive. To each his own, I got mine third hand but did find a new pair for slightly cheaper than this price...

    Well, I'm not trying to change the signature, it is the dac that I have and it does warm them up for those who think they are a bit too stark. If I'm home or transportable I use the Hugo which is less warm and more revealing.

    Yeah, I usually use them with the chord mojo now. Occasionally with the Hugobut that is less portable. Mojo is much warmer than Hugo but a step down in dynamics and detail. The warmness suits the Finals.
