    Thanks for the honest review. I auditioned them briefly and came away unimpressed - I could have spent more time with them but they just didn't sound interesting. I'm afraid I agree with your point about their dullness, and not just in the trebles. The fit was fine, the source was fine, can't remember if it was from the Pioneer XDP-100R or a Sony PHA-1.   I was all the more disappointed since my reference headphones are the Sonorous VI (when they were still called Pandora Hope), which I'd define as the polar opposite of dull; and Final seem pretty proud about the 7200 if you read their own blurb about them.   But the truth is those sounded boring, a little veiled even, without much personality, either with bass-heavy music or dynamic metal.

    No problem and thanks for reading! i agree you put it perfectly, as i mention not only is it lacking in overall sound quality its also lacking any soul or personality.

    The F4100 is the best in the new F-Series. Much more energetic, good bass (quality, not quantity). Howeverm can be a bit grainy in the highs. Also found the F7200 somehow boring when listened to them,

    Mmmmh now I think I should give those F4100 a listen...

    you should. Much better value for money than the F7200

    To be honest, I read your review and it just seems to me you like dynamic drivers more than balanced armatures. Nothing wrong with that but perhaps a better comparison can be made with similar earphones.

    [user=439470]@captainmuffins[/user] i like all driver technologies, they all have strengths and weaknesses. I actually recommend the Final Heaven II (balanced armature) which is far better sounding and much cheaper. i found it hard to compare the F7200 with iems in the $400 range because most of them are technically a lot better at everything so i had to target the sub $100 and they're better still even at the lower price.

    The sound signature of the F7200 is dull, compressed and flat. Technical perfomance is poor too so its not a good combination. I write honest reviews even it means no more freebies.
