I absolutely love the FD1. For me, the FD1 has a near ideal tuning. It has my favorite tuning of all of my (too many) IEMs. It just needs a bit more soundstage depth and a bit more detail to be "end game". I would assume that the FD5 will be all of that and more. There were reports that the FD5 would be over $500. $350 is my maximum for an IEM. Thankfully, the FD5 fits my allowable expenditure limit. I will purchase the FD5 this week. I will report back to the community after I have some quality and quantity time with it.

Uh oh... I was going over my gift expenditures last night. My bank account says to wait a bit before I purchase the FD5.

Definitely a strong contender for my last IEM of 2020 or the first of 2021.

From HiFiGo:
Best Configuration For Best Sound Quality:-
The premium dynamic driver unit equipped on both sides of the FD5 is made up of premium components. It features a Diamond-like coated diaphragm and a Beryllium coated dome, both these rigid and flexible materials complement each other and results in swift sound conduction and internal damping.

So is this how we're to interpret the dual coating ?

Oh crap, if this is something like an FD1 on steroids, it's a must buy...
Actually it looks quite different from the FD1

(grey line = harman)


Seems to be bassier than harman and also with a lower pinna gain.

That is weird. if you took a poll who would want the dome to be BE and DLC on the outside? Most are hot for Be bass and the DLC is gonna do the bass. Interesting or a little less interesting to me now. DLC bass hasn't really done it for me.
