Description

We were waiting for so long the new FiiO FT3 Large Dynamic High-Res Over-Ear Headphones

  • Large Dynamic High-Res Over-Ear Headphones
  • 60mm large dynamic driver
  • Beryllium-plated gasket + DLC diaphragm
  • 350Ω high impedance
  • Asymmetric internal and external magnetic circuit system
  • Open-back design
  • Furukawa monocrystalline copper cable
  • Aluminum alloy construction
  • Lightweight hollow design
  • 4 different audio plugs included

Thoughtfully designed - Beryllium-plated gasket + DLC diaphragm

The diaphragm is one of the most important parts of a dynamic driver. And not just any diaphragm material can meet the demands of the FT3 due to the large driver size. After countless testing at FiiO, a beryllium-plated gasket + DLC diaphragm was chosen. The FT3 driver gasket is plated with beryllium. This not only results in a lighter gasket (and thus a lighter driver), but also a more rigid gasket better able to handle the movement of the large dynamic driver for less distortion. The diaphragm of the FT3 is made of DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon),  – which is both highly sturdy and lightweight compared to other diaphragm materials. This means that the FT3 driver is less prone to breakup and thus nonlinear distortion, while also having an extremely extended frequency response and improved soundstage.

Pure sound - 350Ω high impedance

The FT3 was designed with great sound as the primary goal, and features 350Ω impedance to achieve that. Compared to lower impedance headphones, higher impedance headphones more effectively filter out noise to the listener resulting in a purer sound with higher signal-to-noise ratio performance. The voice coil is made of ultra-fine Japanese copper-clad aluminum only 0.035mm thick in diameter. This finer voice coil allows the driver to better and more quickly follow signals, has anti-interference capabilities, and allows for thunderous dynamics across a wide frequency response range.

Hear the artist’s intent - Asymmetrical internal and external magnetic circuit system

The FT3 utilizes powerful N52 neodymium magnets to maximize sound quality under its 350Ω impedance design. These magnets have been arranged in an optimized asymmetrical internal and external magnetic circuit system. When the voice coil starts to move during the reproduction of sound, the optimized magnetic circuit balances this movement of the voice coil and diaphragm, especially during large dynamic changes - which allows more effective use of magnetic energy and better control over the voice coil. 

Quality cable - Furukawa monocrystalline copper wire

Standard with the FT3 is a 3m, 23AWG diameter cable consisting of high-purity Furukawa monocrystalline copper wire.

Outer shell material: TPE

Shielding layer: PCOCC-A (26/0.12X2) 

Insulating layer: PFA 

Conductor: PCOCC-A (3/20/0.8X2AWG23)

Outermost diameter: 2.4mmx2 (parallel structure)

Lighter and stronger - Aluminum alloy construction

The exterior of the FT3 is made entirely of aluminum alloy that not only feels luxurious to the touch, but is also highly rigid yet lightweight. This gives the FT3 the perfect combination of being comfortable to listen to and being durable enough to withstand life’s challenges.

Full of comfort - With a lightweight hollow mesh design

The FT3’s design begins with hexagonal elements as its base, and when combined with how open-backed headphones usually look, gives off a bold sci-fi appearance. The open-back design features a hollowed-out mesh to not only further reduce the weight for greater listening comfort, but also to fully unleash the capabilities of its driver in a more open environment.

Removing a layer of veil from your music - Open-backed design

The FT3 features an open-backed design that reduces unwanted vibrations and resonances and results in a larger soundstage, since when the driver is pushing air in the housing the open-back means that air encounters. The result is that details in the music come through more clearly and naturally in a wide open soundstage, just as if you were listening to a live performance.

Free to rotate - 3-axis swiveling design

The FT3 has undergone much fit testing in FiiO Labs, and the 3-axis swiveling design is one result of that testing. The 3-axis swiveling design was specifically made so that the FT3 could better fit a wide variety of head and face shapes for improved comfort and better seal to maximize sound quality.

Innovative touches - Angled drivers parallel to the ear

The FT3’s driver is placed at an angle to be parallel to the ear when worn, which helps to reduce high-frequency response caused by the waves hitting the contour of the ear and not entering it. Angled drivers can also minimize unwanted reflections caused by the shell of the headphone that would cause standing waves and also reduce frequency response distortion. Additionally, towards the rear of the FT3’s shell is a reflective tip that is specifically designed to direct soundwaves produced by the driver to prevent unwanted reflections from interfering with each other, to both further minimize sound flaws and reduce unwanted frequency response artifacts.

Rich sounds - 2 sets of distinct-sounding earpads

The FT3 comes with 2 sets of earpads, each with their own sound

Suede earpads: Balanced sound, enhanced ambience, majestic experience

Immitation leather earpads: Clear sound, large soundstage, highly detailed

Thorough protection - Storage bag included

The FT3 comes with a storage bag, which comprehensively protects your headphones in a light yet luxurious feeling package.

Widely compatible - 4 swappable audio plugs come standard

The FT3 cable features swappable plugs of the following 4 kinds:

3.5mm/4.4mm swappable plugs

3.5mm to 6.35mm adapter

Arrivate la sett scorsa.
Cuffia curata, con un accessoristica annessa che marchi molto più prestigiosi e costosi dovrebbero mettere e non lo fanno.
Solo il cavo supera i 100 euro di aftermarket.
Provata sulla seguente postazione di ascolto
Sorgente cocktail audio, dac gustard x18 +gustard u18 equalizzazione FBQ 3102 HD
Amplificazione violectric DHA226
File dsd 256 Vanessa Fernandez, uno tra i vari provati.
Un suono preciso é l'aggettivo che mi viene subito alla mente.
Basso scolpito mai né troppo ne troppo poco
Voci : le trovo belle, reali prive di colorazioni leggermente indietro rispetto alla parte strumentale ma assolutamente da non considerarlo come un difetto.
Alte: ariose , assolutamente non invadenti soprattutto non faticose anche dopo qualche ora d'ascolto con diversi livelli di volume.
Se devo segnalare un neo,
trovo per essere una cuffia aperta un palcoscenico poco esteso sia nell'asse orizzontale che verticale ma sicuramente non un
suono in testa intendiamoci.
Perciò considerando che questa é la prima cuffia della casa in formato over ear mi considero soddisfatto dell'acquisto sia per il prezzo ,l'accessoristica e le prestazioni fornite, che la collocano sicuramente a giocarsela con concorrenti dal prezzo doppio del suo.
(E qualche cuffia la posseggo)
Grazie come sempre a playstereo per la serietà e la velocità nelle spedizioni dei loro prodotti.
