FiiO expanding its in-ear monitor series in India with the FiiO FH1. It named on a French word “Un Bel Oeil” which means “a beautiful eye”. The FH1 is designed in an oval pupil shape with a chrome rim around which gives an illusion of one’s eyelids. The FH1 has 10mm diaphragm drivers those claimed by the company are capable of providing deep lows while the mids and highs are balanced by Knowles.
It uses 33518 balanced armatures by Knowles those are tuned to produce the best sound in a given range of frequency. The FH1’s diaphragm is 25.7% larger than the F9’s 9.2mm dynamic driver, making for not only more relaxed yet natural sounding vocals but also more robust bass resulting in a highly dynamic, authoritative musical experience.
The FiiO FH1 uses a hybrid design to work between the frequency of 20Hz to the 40kHz range. The FH1 utilizes the standard MMCX connector for its interchangeable cables and comes standard with both 2.5mm balanced and 3.5mm single-ended cables.
The 2.5mm balanced cable is made of silver-plated copper wire, which ensures a balanced sound signature and a high level of detail retrieval. Of course, due to its balanced nature, the left and right channel wires are separated so that there is significantly greater channel separation leading to a richer and more detailed musical experience. The 3.5mm single-ended cable comes with a full set of in-line controls capable of playing/pausing songs, switching tracks, volume adjustment, and even calls with its high-quality microphone. This makes the FH1 a perfect complement to enhance your experience with your portable audio player or cell phone.
The end of the MMCX cable’s left channel is adorned with a splash of blue, while the end of the right channel is trimmed with a touch of red – for easy identification of the audio channels in a subtly stylish way. These channel ends also have a spiral texture engraved into them, for just the right amount of friction to greatly aid in removing and replacing the cable.
The shell of the FH1 is specifically Nano-coated to make it scratch-resistant. When coupled with the UV-treated skin-friendly material that also makes up its shell, the FH1 is both durable and extremely comfortable to wear.
After much testing and feedback from a wide variety of users, we came up with an over-the-ear design that is not only ergonomic but also comfortable. With the FH1, you can easily get lost in your music for hours without fatigue.
Besides the 2.5mm balanced and 3.5mm single-ended cables, the FH1 comes with a whole host of other accessories all designed to tailor and safeguard your listening experience. For instance, the FH1 comes with two different kinds of ear tips – one set optimized for bass while the other is designed for a more balanced presentation. Each type of ear tips comes in small, medium, and large sizes.
The FH1 is available in 4 colors – Black, Blue, Red and Green and will carry a price tag of M.R.P. Rs. 6990. The earphones are available for purchase on the FiiO India website – www.fiio.co.in
