Introducing the new flagship in the Final IEM earphone line-up: the single dynamic driver A8000 IEM earphones. Merging tried and tested knowledge and technologies, the A8000 benefits from Final's subjective stance of creating the best possible audio. Armed with a special single dynamic driver inserted in a precision-machined stainless steel chassis, the A8000 is suitable for a wide range of musical genres with a universal sound.
Final A8000 uses a diaphragm made from ultra-thin Beryllium foil, which is an ideal driver diaphragm material due to its lightweight and high sound speed. The adoption of pure Beryllium leads to improved time response that greatly creates timing, while the sharpness of sound build-up and the lingering resonance of the sound can clearly be felt.
Final have divided the chassis into four chambers to optimize the operation of the driver in the A8000. The driver ante-chamber and the double construction driver post-chamber and the MMCX connector portion are separated into different cavities. As the driver of the Final A8000 is directly mounted into the ante-chamber of the chassis, it is able to suppress unnecessary vibration to achieve a distinct sound shape.
The evolution of sound.
Truly Pure Beryllium Diaphragm
The A8000 employs a diaphragm made from ultra-thin Beryllium foil (Truly Pure Beryllium Diaphragm), which is the ideal diaphragm material due to its lightweight and high speed. Beryllium has ideal characteristics for a diaphragm material allowing the sharpness of sound build-up and the lingering resonance of the sound to be felt, as can the silence between sounds.
Based on the IEM chassis design developed for the B series that has become established as an ideal solution, the A8000 realizes a superior sense of fit. In limiting the area of contact in comparison to an organically shaped surface that comes in contact with a large area of the ear, the A8000 aims for a sense of fit with no feeling of pressure for a comfortable listening experience.
In order to optimize the operation of the driver in the A8000, the inside of the driver unit chassis has been divided into four chambers. The use of four chambers achieves a balance between volume and tightness in the low-range while at the same time preventing leakage of sound.
Detachable MMCX Cable
The detachable flexible high-purity OFC silver coated cables provide a wide sound stage, while the MMCX connectors developed by Final in-house make for easy replacement or upgrade. When using in conjunction with the ear hooks the cable moves flexibly for a comfortable and secure fit.
Final have included a tool to assist removing the MMCX connectors. Using MMCX ASSIST the plug can be removed with surprising ease by applying proper force to the MMCX connector in the direction for cable removal, It also prevents the contingency of the cable from becoming severed by mistakenly pulling on the cable portion of the MMCX connector plug.
Two types of silicon differing in rigidity are employed for the sound conduit and for the earbud that comes into contact with the user’s ear. The silicon used for the sound conduit is more rigid than that used for the earbud, and by having groove processing applied to it, combines both strength and flexibility.
These IEMs are referred to as “transparent” in both Final’s advertising and many reviews I read, and it’s an excellent description. The sound is effortless — on the right tracks, it’s more like you’re recalling the song inside your head than listening to something in your ears.
Sub bass is outstanding, bass is tight (some people might call it flat, but it feels more well-controlled to me), midrange and above are so clear without being tiring. The very top of treble can be a little harsh, just almost too precise. These earphones excel at acoustic and vocals, but do very well with most genres. Rock and dance sounds better on OE headphones, but I don’t think that’s a fair comparison.
Fit is exceptional in my ears, and I don’t have particularly big ears. The seal with the stock silicone earpieces is very good and very comfortable.
I purchased them refurbished from this site; other than the absence of the box, they were as-new.
