final FI-F3BAL Earbuds Earphones : Great compact audiophile grade IEM’s

I’ve been searching for a pair of earphones that i like for a number of years now. For some reason i found i either have to compromise on either the comfort or the sound. I finally decided to buy a high end set and, after much research, tried these and i’m glad i did. Good range of options and sizes of silicone and foam eartips together with the safe fit rings and ear hooks really have made a difference. Maybe i have funny ears but these are the first “good” pair to feel really comfortable. In the past i have had heavier pairs which weigh down and don’t feel secure. These are very light weight so there’s no problems on that front (the photo is without the tips but you can see how small they are)i’m not much of an expert but the sound is great. Even though they are small the bass comes through perfectly. Also comes in a nice soft, carry case. However, what i really love is the fact that it also comes with cotton swabs.

Came with multiple ear pieces so you can choose one that is most comfy for your ears. Also came with a nice cable tidy/pocket storage box. The sound is exceptionally crisp and clear with no fuzziness or tinniness that you will get with cheaper headphones.

I have previously used their e2000 and e3000 before and wanted an upgrade. These looked interesting and for the price of the previous listed earphones, i thought i would invest in this company.

A really interesting headphone option – i’ve been using soundmagic e10’s for a long time, mainly as mix reference, but i felt i had similar issues occurring with my mixes so decided to try a few alternatives. This is a high quality product – from the packaging to the fit and finish, my first impressions were very positive. First listen did leave a little confused; initially i found them to be very forward in the upper mids and a little tiring, but after a few listening sessions they appeared to ‘burn in’ and soften somewhat. I would suggest if you’re looking for headphone that gives you hyped and shiny top and bottom then avoid the finals – if you’re looking for detail and clarity, exceptional sound reproduction for acoustic or speech based listening then these represent a great option. They offer me a great reference point for midrange and upper frequencies – the low end is tight, possibly a little light but easy to get used to. The f3100 are very comfortable (easy to forget they’re in) and clear, a very good purchase.

I think in todays world of iphones and fancy gadgets, packaging and the unboxing experience play a big part in the product. When you open it has to look good, when you rip open that amazon packaging you want to be wowed, you want to see the quality before you hear it or feel it. Starting out these headphones where great out of the packaging the headphones well presented, the box is clean and when you open it everything feels nice. You feel like you got your moneys worth. The little case the headphones are presented in are lovely, it’s a nice rubber case you know are going to keep everything protected and it wraps the cable nicely to stop breakages. I try and give headphones a little burn in time as they sound a bit sweeter for it. I alternated between these and my big over ears for the course of a month. One set on the way to work and one on the way back. It also helped with some comparisons. Initially before the burn in these headphones felt a little bright so a sharp top end, which was nice for about 10 mins then it got a bit to much.

I bought these headphones based on final’s reputation for good high end gear. As a musician and frequent traveller, i tend to give headphones a real hard life so didn’t want to fork out for an expensive pair, though still want quality soundthe sound is super clear, with loads of volume and a surprisingly good bass response considering how small the earbuds are. I’ve been listening to a lot of rock, jazz and acoustic music, all of which come across really natural with very little colour added to the records. So far so gooddelivery was really quick and they come with loads of silicon and foam earpieces of differing sizes as well as a nifty rubber case to store them. The headphones themselves are super lightweight, really discreet and feel comfortable to use. They seem really sturdy so far too. I haven’t managed to break them yet – which is saying somethinghighly recommend.

First impression of unboxing these earphones, the packaging is of a high standard and tells you instantly that you’ve purchased a quality item. The glossy outer box gives way to an internal matt box with a lid, which opens up to a neat compartment. Tips and other accessories are wrapped in a neat branded paper seal, the earphones and case are seated just above. The earphones themselves feel very luxurious, the cord has a nice satin weave feel and the phones themselves are finished to a high standard. They have a reassuring solid construction, you can tell they’re good quality and well designed. Sound wise, the earphones are really impressive. They give a rich and detailed delivery, with tons of clarity and punch. At high volume they aren’t harsh, but still deliver a balanced and focussed sound. The bass is defined and satisfying, and for the size of the earphones is really impressive also. Obviously these are in-ear phones, so don’t expect spine rattling bass and volume like you’d get from headphone cans.

I was looking for a pair of portable headphones that would offer a high quality sound experience and i was not disappointed. I was really impressed by the well balanced and clear sound of these headphones using a variety of sources. When using with high quality audio sources (i was using alac) they revealed a highly detailed and clear sound which i would normally only associate with a home hi-fi system. They even sounded great when using lower quality sources such as spotify.In terms of sound they offer a good level of bass – to my ears and music taste i like to boost this a bit whatever headphones i’m using. Where they really shine is in the mids and treble where detail is certainly a significant step above your average pair of in-ears, it will be hard to go back to any other headphones after hearing thesein terms of design they look and feel premium as soon as you open the box. They come with a variety of ear-tips, both rubber and foam, so you can get a great fit and block out ambient noise whatever your ear size/shape. I particularly liked the ear hooks which give you and extra level of comfort and security. They also include a nice carry case for safe storage on the go. Overall i am highly impressed with these headphones in both their build quality and sound performance.

Key Features

Close Proximity Driver Placement

Final F3100 can be positioned at the back or at the entrance of the ear canal, to adjust the sound quality. With the sound output at the very front, you will be able to feel the sound being transmitted directly.

Aluminium Machined Housing

Final have used an aluminium-magnesium alloy housing finished in a smart black anodic film that gives the F3100 a robust housing. The outcome is a clear and balanced sound with a wide sound stage and highly realistic vocals with a slightly more bass heavy sound than the F4100.

Safe Fit Ring

The earphone comes with a safe fit rings so you can use your silicone earpiece safely. Using the silicon earpieces without the safe fit rings may result in the earpieces changing position and the tips of the housings protruding from the earpieces, which may in turn injure the ear canals.

High Quality Cable

The high-purity OFC cables provide high-quality signal transmission providing a wider sound stage. The PVC tubing has been chosen for its flexibility and has been finished with a rope-like texture to reduce microphonics.

I have been very impressed with the final f3100 earphones. I have used them a lot for over a week now. You can use these in various positions in your ear and foam and silicon earpieces are supplied. These are the first earphones i have used that i have, with some trial and error, managed to fit perfectly into my ear. So even when on the move they have stayed put and are very comfortable. Which leads me on to the sound. They sit well into the ear canal and that makes a marked improvement to most earphones i have tried. The sound is noticeably transmitted directly to the ear drum. Using the foam tips i found that background noise was eliminated much like noise-cancelling headphones. It certainly took a bit to find the right configuration but it is so worthwhile to get earphones that fit your ear properly.
