Introduction Final A5000 Earphones
Recently Final introduced the new A5000 earphones, which follow in the footsteps of the flagship A8000 and the popular A3000/A4000 IEM’s. Final completely redesigned these earphones, with a new driver, acoustic chamber and newly developed braided cable.
Newly developed Driver
The A5000 is equipped with a new 6mm f-Core DU dynamic driver, which was developed and designed entirely in-house, including parts and production equipment. The sound quality was designed based on final’s unique evaluation method established during the development of the flagship earphone A8000. The material of the driver front housing is brass, which is less affected by magnetic force and has a higher specific gravity than general aluminum.
In addition to the so-called “transparent sound” that allows you to clearly hear sounds that are localized at a distance, you can hear even the finer sounds in the mid-low range, giving each sound a sense of depth.
New assessment Sound Quality Method
The development of the A series started with the establishment of a new evaluation method based on the analysis of the relationship between sound quality and physical characteristics, and the result was the A8000. We listen to music recorded in different qualities and at different volumes. However, in conventional evaluation methods, subjective evaluation is generally performed under fixed conditions such as the sound pressure that presents the sound, making it difficult to judge good sound based on actual product listening. The A5000 uses a new evaluation method for sound creation that matches actual music listening situations.
The A5000 is based on the optimal housing design for IEMs established in the development of the B series, and achieves an even better fit. If earphones are comfortable to wear is determined by the feeling of pressure. Compared to the shape that touches the ear with an organic large surface, the shape that limits the contact area aims for a feeling of wearing without feeling oppressive. The A5000 housing is held at three points for a stable fit. There will be 1 point in the pink part (ear pocket), 1 point in the green part (earpiece), and 1 point in the blue part (tragus), for a total of 3 points. Therefore, it fits most people’s ears. If there is no pressure at all points of contact, you will be able to feel that the earphones are so comfortable to wear, as if they were customized earphones.
Newly designed Silver Coated Cable
The attached cable is a newly designed product newly developed for the A5000. 8-core silver-coated OFC wire is woven into it, making it soft and easy to handle. The 2-Pin connector is a high-precision product developed in-house and uses the φ0.78 standard, which is considered to be the most versatile.
Ear hooks are useful for reducing touch noise, and when worn, the unpleasant gurgling sound (cable touch noise) that occurs when the cable touches the body while walking is dramatically reduced. Our conventional ear hooks are slimmer than general ear hooks, and feature a comfort that makes you forget you’re wearing them, as they don’t feel like a foreign object compared to cables containing wires or resin. It is a type (TYPE B) with a lock mechanism that can be firmly fixed to the cable.
