FiiO has announced the latest Hybrid Driver In-ear Monitor FH7 in Singapore. The new in-ear monitor (IEM) offers a cleverly engineered acoustic design that makes for a sound well-suited for all kinds of music. In addition, FH7 has 3 pairs of interchangeable sound filters, that is bound to please audiophiles and music lovers alike with the customisation, allowing your music to sound exactly the way you want it.
Stunning on the outside, but also powerful on the inside
The FH7’s 4 Knowles balanced armature drivers and a beryllium dynamic driver perfectly cover all parts of the sound frequency spectrum through sophisticated crossover and turbo acoustics designs. This makes the new FH7 an all-rounder well suited for all kinds of music:
High and ultra-high frequency spectrums are handled by the Knowles SWFK-31736 BA driver, often utilised in top-of-the-line IEMs. This driver is extremely detailed but without being harsh, giving you a natural, crystal-clear sound.
The mid frequencies are handled by a custom BA driver designed by FiiO and Knowles in conjunction with each other. We took the classic Knowles 30017 driver and tweaked it to give the mids more body, for fuller and sweeter vocals as well as a larger soundstage.
FiiO FH7’s low frequencies are achieved by the brilliance of 13.6mm Beryllium diaphragm dynamic driver. The Beryllium diaphragm is famous for its unparalleled lightness, flexibility, yet extremely rigid for even deeper, explosive bass.
On top of that, the new FH7 is composed of 8 strings of high-purity Litz monocrystalline copper-plated silver wires – 152 of them in fact, bundled into 8 strands. FiiO means business when it comes to providing the best possible sound.
Get a rush with S.TURBO acoustic design
FiiO’s patented acoustic design – S.TURBO V2.0, is the next generation, a level up from its predecessors. The driver is further optimised on the new FiiO FH7 IEM to extract even more performance out of the dynamic driver. The sound pipes used in FH7 are inspired by turbines, being longer and more acoustically-optimised, to give a deeper and more robust bass.
The FH7’s shell is made of aerospace-grade aluminium-magnesium alloy, treated with five-axis CNC machining. To ultimately create the shell, the alloy needs to go through 21 steps in a total of 3,873 cuts and is finished with a final round of sandblasting and hand polishing. The FH7 employs an exceptionally rigid three-point structure to greatly reduce unwanted resonance and distortion, for the purest sound possible.
Beyond the technical structure of the FH7, the design of the FH7 shell is also the key design highlight, lending inspiration from nature — specifically the ferocity and dominance of great water waves, and indiction of the powerful and mesmerising sound FH7 offers.
Create your own sound, the way you prefer
The FiiO FH7 comes with 3 pairs of interchangeable sound filters to give you music sounding exactly the way you want it. Users can select a filter based on the sound you want: Red emphasises on Dynamic bass, Black makes the soundscape more balanced, while Green brings out the treble details in your playlist.
A diverse ecology of accessories
Along with the outstanding in-ear monitor, the FH7 also comes with a wealth of accessories, including an expansive foam tip tray for your ultimate comfort and fit, an exquisite navy blue snap case to store your in-ear monitor safely, and a little fabric pouch to hold your tips.
