Hi guys!
Today I've decided to finally let go of my collectible-condition, legendary limited Final Lab1. As you may know, there were only 200+200 made and you can't buy them anymore, anywhere. That's the last piece made by the late Kanemori Takai san.

They were bought about 1.5 years ago from official Final distributor in Poland, EU. I'm a huge Final fan, also being the owner of Sonorous X and Lab 2 (the only ones in my country), BTW. Condition of the earphones itself is like new. The pocket silver cigar-box is slightly scratched on the surface (it's impossible not to scratch it - it's very delicate, maybe polished aluminium).

Everything is inside, including the beautiful packaging, certificate and all the tips.

Here's a shopping site to see how the offer originally looked: http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/final-lab-i-in-ear-isolating-earphones-titanium.html

Review "Lush and Organic Sound Signature; Work of Art": https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/final-audio-design-lab-1.21354/

They have great coherence and culture of the sound reproduction due to the titanium 3d-printed shell which help to control the vibration of the drivers and thus you will find completely no resonance which is always found in plastic or wooden phones. That's what I love Final for - using high quality metal, providing us full control of the drivers, which are "kept in their place" no matter what.

They actually provide a good isolation if inserted deeply like Etymotic. You may also insert them shallow. There's much to explore here.

I'm selling because I want explore collecting hi-end CIEMs now :wink:

I will ship everywhere.

Just a little something - a beautiful impulse response from these babies:

This looks astounding. That's better than most other earphones AND headphones. Very well controlled impulse. Compare with AKG K501:
