FiiO announces the launch of 2 Triple Driver Hybrid IEMs – F9 and F9 SE in India. The F9 will be priced at MRP Rs. 8990 and the F9 SE is priced at MRP Rs. 7990.
The F9 utilizes a hybrid design in which each channel is composed of one dynamic and two balanced armature (BA) drivers; it utilizes the standard MMCX connector for its interchangeable cables, and comes standard with both 2.5mm balanced and 3.5mmm single-ended cables; the ripple-like lines on the F9 not only give it a unique touch, but also serve to ensure structural strength; over-the-ear design for an enjoyable experience; also, you can choose red for an unreserved and vigorous look, or go for black for an understated and sophisticated appearance.
In order to boost the production capacity and meet the strong demand for the F9 triple driver hybrid IEMs, we also release its standard edition F9 SE, which has some small changes based on the original F9, such as changed to non-detachable sans in-line controls single-ended cable, 3.5mm L-type plug. And it’s still available in red and black.
- 1 Dynamic Driver & 2 Balanced Armatures for Triple helpings of rich sound
The F9 utilizes a hybrid design in which each channel is composed of one dynamic and two balanced armature (BA) drivers. The 9.2mm dynamic driver is specifically tuned to produce bottomless lows while the two BA drivers precisely portray extended upper-mids and highs.
- Freely switch between balanced and single-ended with standard MMCX connectors
The F9 utilizes the standard MMCX connector for its interchangeable cables, and comes standard with both 2.5mm balanced and 3.5mm single-ended cables.
- 3.5mm Cable
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 F9 a perfect complement to enhance your experience with your portable audio player or cell phone.
- 2.5mm Cable
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, more detailed musical experience.
- Over-the-ear design for an enjoyable experience
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 F9, you can easily get lost within your music for hours without fatigue.
- Hi-Res Audio Certification
The F9 has been certified by the Japan Audio Society to be “Hi-Res Audio” capable. This means that the F9 is capable of a frequency response up to 40 kHz, which can fully reproduce the audio and give you a natural and life-like listening experience that truly lets you listen to the music the way the artists wanted it to sound.
- PEK polymer nanocomposite driver for heightened detail
The F9 utilizes a dynamic driver made of PEK (polyether ketone) polymer nanocomposite, known for not only being tough but also being light. This allows the F9’s dynamic driver to be highly capable of producing quick, detailed, and extended bass.
