The Fiio F9 retail for around Rs 7,999 on the web and highlight a triple driver setup, separable links, an excellent all aluminum plan and a strong weatherproof case. How about we check whether the F9 is justified regardless of its cost in our full audit:
Fiio claims that that they have connected streamlined and bionic standards while planning the headphones. The subsequent ‘wave’ molded plan enables the headphones to emerge from the group. The F9 looks smooth and tasteful – not a single Skullcandy like gaudy completed in sight here.
Where the F9 vacillate is when goes to the MMCX connectors used to join the separable links to the headphones. The connectors are hardened and the links are difficult to isolate. This makes exchanging between the two links an unnecessarily troublesome process. I had extraordinary trouble swapping one link for the other over the span of the audit.
Anyway the oversight of froth tips in the crate stings particularly considering the way that the F9 are promoted as premium headphones. A couple of go along tips would have adjusted off the bundle as well as upgraded segregation and solace.
The dynamic driver deals with the bass and lower mids while the adjusted armature drivers are entrusted with taking care of the upper mids and highs. This best of the two universes arrangement causes you get the profound bass and warmth that just a dynamic driver can give along the clearness and freshness of adjusted armatures.
Saying that, the lower end nearness isn’t something that bass heads will appreciate. It doesn’t have a cerebrum softening low end reaction. The mids sound vaporous and clear however there is a little dunk in the lower mids because of which bring down pitched vocals (imposing male voice for instance) can sound somewhat inaccessible now and again. Be that as it may, in general the vocal introduction is very perfect for headphones in this value run.
Basically, the headphones sound spotless and point by point and are among the best sounding headphones in this value run. Those searching for a hotter, more regular sounding sound mark anyway may be somewhat disillusioned.
The headphones are shockingly really simple to drive, with my cell phone (Moto Z2 Play) having the capacity to give adequate measures of volume. Clearly with a devoted DAP like the Fiio X3 or X5, you will get a cleaner and hotter sound mark, however your cell phone won’t battle with these.
The issue is that relatively few contributions out there, put something aside for a couple of devoted sound players like the Fiio X3 and Fiio X7, bolster the adjusted link right now. In the event that you do claim a more up to date age Fiio DAP with an adjusted 2.5mm port, I would propose utilizing the adjusted link over the stock 3.5mm one.
Discussing solace, I observed the F9 to be somewhat of a blended pack. Solace is an exceptionally close to home inclination, so take the accompanying words with a spot of salt. I am not a major aficionado of the over-ear plan in headphones and in the F9 too, I wound up attempting to adjust to the snare style arrangement that folds around your ears.
In multi day and age where the 3.5mm jack is going the method for the Dodo and accommodation is ending up more essential than sound quality in sound items, it is both invigorating and incredible to see energetic organizations like Fiio as yet producing devoted sound players, compact enhancers and items like the Fiio F9.
There are a couple of chinks in the protective layer however. The treble can get somewhat peaky now and again and bass heads will be left somewhat baffled. They are likewise not the most agreeable around and the links are very dubious to isolate.
At Rs 7,999, the Fiio F9 makes for an awesome purchase for even the most observing audiophile on a financial plan. They are without a doubt among the best sounding headphones you can get for under Rs 10,000 – the sound is spotless, nitty gritty and exact – with a breezy soundstage and a moderately adjusted recurrence reaction. They are likewise constructed extremely well and look very premium.
When you become accustomed to the over-ear plan however, the F9 are a significant delight to utilize. It is anything but difficult to get a solid match because of the large number of silicone tips packaged in the crate. The lodging of the headphones isn’t huge which makes utilizing them while resting sideways not unreasonably a lot of a battle.
The advantages of the adjusted link will be totally lost on you in the event that you are anticipating utilizing your cell phone to tune in to music with your cell phone. All things considered, it is smarter to spare some cash and purchase the Fiio F9 SE which comes just with the standard link and costs Rs 700 less.
On the off chance that you change to the 2.5mm adjusted link, the headphones do sound more unbiased with a more controlled, less forward treble reaction, clearer mids and a more extensive, more nitty gritty soundstage. To put it plainly, they do sound more adjusted.
Because of the sound being fresh and point by point, the soundstage and instrument partition is truly amazing with all instruments sounding unmistakable and very much divided out. There are two kinds of tips given in the case, red hued ones with a more extensive bore and dark hued ones with a more slender bore. The dark tips furnish a hotter sound favoring bass with the red tips sound crisper and support higher frequencies.
The treble sounds definite and fresh. Notwithstanding, I felt now and again that the headphones were overcompensating in the top of the line range in an offer to sound more itemized, prompting a marginally thin stable.
The sound mark is marginally V formed with somewhat recessed mids, complemented treble and a controlled bass reaction. Some adjusted armature earphones experience the ill effects of tinny and empty bass. The F9 doesn’t endure a similar destiny on account of the dynamic driver which gives regular and impactful bass.
As the Fiio F9 are gone for sound lovers, how about we bring a profound plunge into how these Rs 7,999 sets of headphones sound. With 2 adjusted armature drivers and a 9.2mm unique driver, the Fiio F9 figures out how to sound superior to anything its cost proposes.
Notwithstanding not accompanying froth tips, the F9’s silicone tips complete a fine occupation disconnecting the sounds around you. Indeed, even with the volume set around 50-60%, I was attempting to hear what individuals were talking around me. Obviously, these won’t disengage high decibel sounds at low to mid volumes as they are not worked for that. Generally the sound seclusion is entirely amazing.
The Fiio F9 accompanies two links out of the crate – a customary link with a 3.55mm gold plated earphone jack and an inline remote and mic and an offset link with an unrivaled SPC wire and a 2.5mm gold plated plug. As the name guarantees, the adjusted link conveys a more adjusted and definite sound. I will discuss the adjusted link in detail later on in the audit.
There is no denying the way that Fiio has been always increasing the amusement with regards to plan and assemble quality. The organization has made considerable progress from the all plastic long stretches of the Fiio E6 speaker. The all aluminum body of the Fiio F9 looks premium as well as feels staggeringly strong also.
