Final Audio 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 has 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 A8000is directly mounted in the ante-chamber of the chassis, it is able to suppress unnecessary vibration to achieve a distinct sound shape.
Ergonomic Design with 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.
MMCX detachable 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 used in conjunction with the ear hooks, the cable moves flexibly for a comfortable and secure fit.
Finally, we have included a tool to assist in 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 of 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.
Original Earpieces for Optimum Sound Quality
The sound is not muddy at all, with extremely high clarity. The vocals and instruments comprising music can each be heard perfectly, and music can be enjoyed with a good feeling. It offers unparalleled reproduction of sound from percussion instruments, pianos, and other instruments for which good sound build-up is particularly demanded.
From classical music to pops, rhythm can be vibrantly delineated. Furthermore, each sound is localized as a silhouette floating in space. As a preface to that, every nuance of vocals is perfectly reproduced, so new inspiration can be attained from familiar tracks of music to which one has already become accustomed.
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 having groove processing applied to it, combines both strength and flexibility.
This is the Final flagship, a pure beryllium dynamic driver in-ear. A real masterpiece and clearly one to have in mind when searching for the holy grail. The Final Audio A8000 is a high-end audiophile earphone that’s beautifully designed and sounds fantastic!
