FiiO&JadeAudio Over-Ear Headphones Discussion & Impressions Thread
Oct 30, 2023 at 4:59 AM Post #467 of 594
Just curous to folks that own the FT3, how many use the swede pads?

also @FiiO just curous is there a reason why the lether pads arent distributed with vendor demo units? Seems to cut out a good amount of folks that are chasing a tighter dryer sound.

Also with reguards to the pads will the FT1 and FT5 be using the same pads as the FT3?
Dear friend,

1. You could suggest the seller about the earpads about that. Maybe more users want to try the other earpads so he did not install the leather one in the FT3 demo.
2. Both the FT3 and FT5 come with 2 sets of distinct- sounding earpads: Suede earpads and Protein leather earpads.

Best regards

There've been rumors that a FiiO closed back headphone is coming... I think it's been referred to as the FT1. Is the Jade Audio JT1 that headphone, or is the FT1 on its way too?

Dear friend,

Thanks for your attention. The Jade Audio JT1 is coming soon(aliexpress.com/item/1005006176969361.html):

90mm Open Planar Magnetic Headphones FT5 Is Officially Released!​

8364169.jpg



Discover micron-level manufacturing and technology
The all-new FT5 is FIIO’s first planar magnetic headphones. Planar magnetic drivers are in between dynamic and electrostatic headphones. Like dynamic headphones, there is a sort of coil on the planar driver. Similar to electrostatic headphones, the diaphragm is a special kind of thin, micron-level film. The FT5 is 28nm chip-scale processed, leading to an approximately 6μm thick diaphragm. These characteristics of the planar driver make it possible to create a headphone that is not only highly detailed, but also easy to power.

Large 90mm planar magnetic driver
The FIIO FT5 employs an outstanding large 90mm planar magnetic driver. Compared to a traditional dynamic driver, a planar magnetic driver converts sound energy to sound waves in a more balanced way, by vibrating in a much more even way. The vibrations are distributed across the entire driver diaphragm and there is little distortion caused by the rigidity of the diaphragm material. Thus, the FIIO FT5 can truly and accurately express audio signals.
8349410.jpg



Micron-plated aluminum-silver alloy coils
During the development of the FT5, the R&D engineers not only needed to consider how the coils would interact with the 6μm thin diaphragm, but also the density and conductivity of the coils themselves. Having examined and tested various commonly-used materials* to plate planar coils, FIIO engineers determined that the lighter aluminum alloy material was best for the coils. Also, they determined that mixing in silver metal would also enhance conductivity of the coils, making the driver easier to power without sacrificing the high-frequency detail and rich sound characteristic of good planar magnetic drivers.

High sensitivity and easy to power
The FT5’s driver is both light and strong, allowing for a high sensitivity of 110dB/1Vrms@1kHz i.e. 96dB/mW@1kHz. This allows the FT5 to be easily driven even by portable players.

392 wires of high-purity silver-plated monocrystalline copper cable
The FT5 comes with a 1.5m cable made of 392 wires of silver-plated monocrystalline copper, each wire with a diameter of 23AWG. The copper wires help to give a solid and highly-detailed sound, fully transmitting lossless sound directly to you.

Hmmmm. $636.00 in Canadian dollars, plus tax. The before tax price is pretty appealing. Hmmmm.

Was there ever a solution for the small earpads? They are just a little too snug on my ears to the point that they bother me.

Are the pads on the FT5 larger? Thanks.
Dear friend,

The pads on FT5 will be a litte bit larger than the FT3. And you may have a try in the local store first when it is available: https://www.fiio.com/wheretobuy

HiFi Over-Ear Headphones JT1 Is Officially Released!​

8376459.jpg


Small money for a big sound
“On the products we want to make, we want to focus more on the core needs of listeners – with less focus on appearance items and more focus on acoustic components such as driver units. We do not want to compromise – let listeners get a good-sounding headphone at a great price that lowers the barrier to getting HiFi sound.”
—— Vincent
Product Manager​
8356484.jpg


Focus on sound quality
The JT1 employs a 50mm dynamic driver, based around a PEK+PU+aluminum polymer diaphragm carefully chosen after evaluating numerous materials. The lightweight nature of the driver allows it to move quickly to reproduce even the most subtle of details, while being supported by a brass gasket means it also achieves low distortion and well-extended frequency response.
8356485.jpg


Easy to drive, for handy great sound
The JT1 is equipped with high performance N52 magnets, a high-tension CCAW voice coil, and a carefully-designed driver diaphragm in order to achieve a natural and accurate sound.
