Shanling ME700 vs FiiO FH7. Switch 2 and 3 OFF (S1OFF)= Warmer signature with biggest bass focus , relaxed mids and treble. They are of medium size for a multi-BA scoring that many drivers and will fit any ears. MIDS are brighter and thinner with the Fidelity and has more upper mids emphasis so while it can give extra attack grip to violin, the vocal sound less full and natural than FA9. I would like to thank FiiO for providing me with the FH7 IEMs and LC-2.5D balanced cable … Might just be me though everyone hears differently! Those two IEM aren’t similar at all, the T800 being more V shape while the FA9 being more neutral and balanced. The FH7 is flagship hybrid earphones from FIIO, it has an all-metal construction and it’s bigger and heavier than FA9, making it a bit less comfortable. vs. FiiO FA7 – 300 $ The FA7 is much warmer, thicker and darker sounding than the FH7. The IT04 sounds too thin at times, whereas the FH7 performs fuller and tonality-wise more satisfying. Which would complement my M11 more and why? In fact, my colleagues have raved about the FiiO fit since the release of the FA7. It comes in a glossy black big box that has a distinctive look.

Due to the big size and a rather small nozzle length, the T800 is less comfortable than FA9 due to the tricky seal issue that affects the sound. Final B1 In-Ear Monitor Review. Gökhan AYDIN 1 September 2020 1 September 2020. While so many people like the fa7 I just don't really like it. Separation isn’t as good as FA9 too and the Fidelity will struggle more with a very busy track. Treble is very crisp and super well controlled. The FH7 is a Flagship 5-Driver (1DD + 4BAs) Hybrid In-Ear Monitors which features a 13.6mm super-large beryllium diaphragm dynamic driver and Knowles composite BA driver DFK & SWFK-31736丨3 pairs of interchangeable DIY sound filters丨silicon eartips SpinFit CP145, etc. Another particularity of FA9 acoustic engineering is the inner tube design that are connected to BA and acts like passive tuning, these earphones use the longest tube ever done for connecting the bass BA to the nozzle end, at 80.6mm of length it’s very puzzling to wonder how they do to fit it in rather small housing of FA9, it permits to avoid interference with other BA and condense the bass so it became amplify and more powerful.

To my ears, they are the highlight of FA9, while the resolution is high, it’s never harsh or bright and it has an effortless naturalness to them. For the Democracy of HiFi Sound Accessibility, SOUND: 8/10 Change ), You are commenting using your Twitter account. All in all, while I still find the T800 more fun, immersive and energic, I can still conclude that FA9 is technically superior in every aspect but soundstage here. FiiO FH7. THE SO-SO: Not very exciting to listen too, not as crisp as we could expect, lack of separation between sub and mid-bass, timbre lack a bit of texture, a rather intimate soundstage. It follows the same tonal smoothening that offer an organic feel to the sound but it’s the most energic aspect of FA9 musicality nonetheless. FiiO LC-2.5D 2.5mm High-Purity Monocrystalline Silver Litz MMCX Replacement Cable for Shure SE215 SE315 SE535 JVC/FiiO FH5 FA7 FH7 4.4 out of 5 stars 163 $99.99 The cable is a little cumbersome and thick but has a changeable jack so you can use both 2.5mm balanced and 3.5mm unbalanced connection. They have a classier, more aesthetically pleasing design. ( Log Out /  I think FIIO targets a specific house sound that can please everyone due to the inoffensive dynamic it offers, the whole sound feels relaxed yet the treble is full and revealing. It's all there, but seems recessed or something. I know that the mids and highs would most probably be great, but my worry was about bass even if FIIO uses an ultra-long sound tube that promises excellent bass performance. While the FA9 isn’t a giant killer in terms of value, it offers a sound that became tastier and tastier with time, like a fine wine full of nuance to be discovered by the mature audiophile gourmet. SOUNDSTAGE is notably bigger in all aspects with the Fidelity and the IMAGING is more spacious because of this, offering wider space between instrument but not as much layering nuance as the FA9. It’s always a little complicate to review an IEM with multiple tuning possibilities, should it be with changeable nozzle filter or tuning switch, you just can’t make a different in-deep sound review of every tuning tweak because it will be very redundant in numerous aspects like timbre and overall tonality. Firstly, has a purist, I tend to want the less compromise sound and I found that putting all the switch off offer the more open, clean and detailed sound. Instead, we have well-layered transparency, full highs presentation that offers nuanced timbre and nice extra shimmer in upper highs that offer a full extension to percussion, harpsichord or violin. I see the FA9 like a laboratory for new future tunings experiment that opens new doors for balanced armature sound projection. SOUNDSTAGE is more intimate in both wideness and deepness with FA9, the IMAGING has better transparency and layering but instrument separation isn’t as wide and easy to spot than FH7. I have the fh5 and somehow I feel like something is “missing” in the overall sound profile...any help would certainly be appreciated. This ”new” way of tuning your IEM to your liking was the most intriguing feature for me and I will share more thought about this in this review, but the switch combination permit you to have 8 different sound flavors. The impedance of the new FiiO FA9 6 Knowles Balanced Armature IEM is specified at 16 to 32 ohms, and the sensitivity is a remarkable 110 dB. VALUE: 7.5/10, THE PLUS: Smooth tonality with a nuanced macro-resolution, Neutral yet musical, Clean Bass-mids-treble, beautiful vocal, non-fatiguing treble, tunable switch make it versatile, generous accessories and nice packaging FIIO really impress me this time with how maturely tuned is their FA9 IEM, it isn’t an easy task to offer such a well-balanced sound using that many drivers and the tonal cohesion are very fluid. As said, the texture is soft, so for slap bass or acoustic bass lover this can be a little underwhelming in resolution, add the compressed extension to this and your favorite bass line might sound little hollow and even undercooked. The FIIO FA9 can be bought for 499$USD on their official Aliexpress STORE. I tend to prefer their BA over cheaper Chinese BA like Bellsing and even older Final Audio BA used in F series which can sound thinner, brighter, or  more artificial. FiiO FH5 vs FiiO FH7 Comparison Review FIT. Best sound ever? They differ vastly in presentation, with FH7 being clinical, aggressive and forward, more a W-shape. My favorite multi-BA IEM is the Audiosense T800 that uses 8 Knowles balanced armature, so when I was aware FIIO was launching a flagship 6BA universal custom in-ear, my curiosity was extremely high as well as my expectation. TREBLE is sharper and more forwards with Fidelity, it offers hint more sparkle-decay but isn’t as thick and balanced as the FA9, the attack is less fast as the FA9 which is more problematic for complex percussions that can sound a bit hot with the Fidelity. The FA9 isn’t a fun sounding iem and even if the bass dig deep it isn’t for basshead at all, it’s neither for the treble head, but perhaps more interesting for serious mids lover that search life-like vocal and instrument in this range. It’s less fun, smoother, and more mature sounding IEM than FH7. The resolution is high without sounding analytical or cold, it’s calm and limpid like a beautiful lake on sunset with water that is perfectly lukewarm for a relaxing and contemplative musical immersion. The sound switch system is what makes the FA9 special and FIIO state you can have 8 different sounds signature by tweaking the crossover via the switches. When I was reviewing the FA7 I had the feeling of “almost there”, “almost perfect”, everything would start with “almost”, they were really nice, outstanding even on some parts but not extraordinary, they still had some quirks. It really feels tolt, but as I feel the FA9 benefit from the balanced output, it would have been incredible to have the FIIO modular cable included, even if it makes the price 50$ more. Gökhan AYDIN 14 January 2020 23 January 2020. The mids are very present and well separated, offering clear vocal with a soft edge to it. Construction is resin plastic, and housing is smaller and lighter, so it’s more comfortable than FH7.

SOUNDSTAGE is bigger and more holographic with T800, but not as deep. I admire the new acoustic design and the use of a super long sound tube for the dual woofer BA sure worth my respect.

TONAL VERSATILITY: 9/10 X. The instrument like violin and saxophone sound tonally right and have a wide airy presence while piano lacks a bit of weight in note impact, but this isn’t surprising as I found BA to struggle with any instrument that has sound produced by a hit, should it be an acoustic piano hammer or drum kick that need well-rounded bass and lower mids transient response for proper weight impression or percussions that need post-impact sparkle.
