    1st round tour member list has been announced<--click me
    Keep the applications coming guys, we're still taking more members on board! :D
    EX1.png

    On behalf of FiiO, I'm pleased to announce that our first earphones, the EX1, are available for audition worldwide via this review tour!

    Official EX1 product page
    Check out Paul (Brooko)'s review of the EX1
    rec.png

    As you may know, the EX1 are based on Dunu's Titan 1, which has been reviewed by everyone and his mom here and sits at the top of the pile of 1626 models of in-ear earphones reviewed at head-fi, just below the Noble K10 custom monitors weighing in at over ten times the price:
    T12nd.png

    So you may already have a good idea of how (good) these sound like. But in the world of audio, hearing is believing, and here's the chance for you to find out for sure whether these phones are for you--for the low low price of free (incl. shipping)! :etysmile:

    What this means is, unlike our previous X player world tours, we will be shouldering any customs charges incurred when shipping the earphones into your country, and also your postage charges for sending on the earphones to the next member in the tour.

    In return, all you need to do is to write your own review of these gems: http://www.head-fi.org/products/fiio-ex1-nanotech-titanium-diaphragm-in-ear-monitors

    Not for the EX1 we haven't! (Based on the Titan 1, the cord and cable strength and ergonomics have been improved; although these may not affect the sound directly, these can nevertheless have significant effect on the wearer's impressions of the earphones)

    Besides, each person has his/her own set of ears and own impressions of the product. Don't mind what others have / have not already written about the earphones, just write your own review. If it's 80% similar to another review, we're glad the product experience is consistent :wink:

    ------------
    Preview application period: starting now! And accepting applications until further notice :)
    First list of previewers to be announced and earphones shipped before 15 September.

    Please apply by replying to this thread and including the following information in your reply:
    -Headphone(s) / earphone(s) you possess:
    -Any DAP(s) / DAC(s) / amp(s) you may possess
    -Descriptions and links to review(s) you may have posted:

    (for our reference only--you don't have to be a pro with a rack of headphones, amps and reviews under your belt to participate in our tour, but it would be nice to know about these things :wink: )

    -Your geographical region (e.g. the city and country you live in):
    -Your native language (and any other languages you may be able to write in)


    Shipping info:
    Depending on the geographical distribution of selected reviewers, FiiO will ship out several EX1's, one or more to reviewers in each region, e.g. USA, Europe, SE Asia, Pacific region, etc. so that shipping time from one reviewer to the next is kept short (while costs will be borne by FiiO). FiiO will pay for all shipping costs thusly:
    -by paying for shipping to the first reviewer
    -as a reviewer, you should send a copy of all documentation of shipping associated costs to FiiO (custom charge receipt, courier receipt for shipping to the next reviewer, etc.), who will then reimburse you via your paypal account. Alternatively, you may choose to use the reimbursement as store credit to buy items from our AliExpress store.
    -please keep shipping costs reasonable! Your next reviewer shouldn't be too far away from you so it should be fine to ship as a regular registered parcel as opposed to, say, Fedex top-priority overnight express :rolleyes:

    +Those who are to be first in line to receive the EX1 from us, please inform us of any special shipping requirements in your country.

    Review regulations (subject to change before the tour commences):
    •Reviewers should keep the EX1 for at most 7 days before shipping to the next reviewer.
    •Reviewers should ship the EX1 to the next reviewer by registered post requiring signature in the box provided (or equivalent hard cardboard box). And please remember to show us your shipping receipt so we can reimburse you :wink:
    •Reviewers will not be held responsible for any damage to the EX1 sustained during shipping or normal usage. Please contact Joe Bloggs promptly if you find any problems with your EX1.
    •Reviewers should do the review fairly and objectively, and related product photos are required.
    •Reviewers need not overstate the advantages of the products.
    •Reviewers should indicate that the review EX1's are free loan units, in order to avoid any misunderstandings.
    •Reviewers are reminded to listen responsibly and safely to the EX1, and not use it when operating machinery or driving.
    •Please notify Joe Bloggs via pm with a link to your EX1 review when it is ready so he can go admire it :L3000:
