The FiiO FH5 is a hybrid in-ear earphone with four drivers. Three Balanced Armature drivers from Knowles and a dynamic driver are installed in the aluminum case of each handset. This combination creates frequencies from 15 to 40,000 Hz with a low impedance of 19 ohms. Thus, the FH5 can be easily operated on virtually all players and smartphones. The design with four drivers ensures good timing, transparency, accuracy and joy of playing. In addition, every receiver of the FiiO FH5 has its own sound tube for each frequency range (bass, midrange, treble), which transports the generated sound to the listener. As a result, there is virtually no interference and the best of each frequency range is extracted. The basses are played richly and with depth,
The high-quality 1.2 meter long earphone cable made of copper and silver with a robust TPU sheath has MMCX connections and can be replaced if necessary with a longer, shorter, one with a different plug, a remote control or Bluetooth. The cable is routed via the ear. So the listener sits perfectly in the pinna and the weight of the cable does not pull on the two listeners. The delivery includes four different types of plugs. The earplugs have a not to be underestimated influence on the sound of an earphone. FiiO takes this fact into consideration and has included plugs with different sound signatures: 3 pairs of earbuds with a focus on "bass", 3 pairs of earplugs with a focus on "vocals" and 2 pairs of "balanced" Ear plugs for a neutral sound. In addition, there are 3 pairs of Memory Foam earplugs, which adapt perfectly to the ear canal and are particularly firm and comfortable. And also two cases are included - a compact cloth bag with zipper and a robust waterproof hard case - so that the FiiO FH5 can be safely transported for any use.
The highlights of the FiiO FH5 at a glance:
- 4-way setup - Here are the specialists at work
- High quality and lightweight - aluminum-magnesium body
- Turbocharger on board - Deep, lively bass thanks to clever design
- Three sound tubes - Each channel for one frequency range
- Cable replaceable - easy to change thanks to the MMCX connection
Exotic-inspired S.TURBO technology - For a burst of pure, raw lows
The FH5's low frequency sound tube adopts FiiO's patented S.TURBO acoustic structural design. With its specially designed turbine-inspired design that makes clever use the physics of sound waves, you get meaty, deep bass that is more than capable of letting you feel the music. S.TURBO also filters out unnecessary mid and high frequencies produced by the bass driver ensuring a more seamless transition between the lows and highs.
Exotic-inspired independent sound tubes - To ensure driver units are perfectly in harmony
Inspired by the twin turbos of today's exotic super cars, the FH5 allocates one sound tube each for the low, mid and high frequencies. These tubes have been designed to impeccably integrate with the 4 driver units, allowing for a wonderfully smooth transition between the three main regions of sound frequencies to maximise the driver's combined potential, bringing you a phenomenal symphony of music.
Knowles Balanced Armature + Polymer nanocompsite ferromagnetic dynamic driver
The FH5 employs an hybrid driver design that combines the best of balanced armature and dynamic drivers for an absolutely addicting sound. Low frequencies are deftly handled by a 10mm polymer nano composite dynamic driver, providing bass extension and quality beyond what you think is normally possible. Mid frequencies are produced by the Knowles ED30262 balanced armature driver, while high and ultra-high frequencies are created by the Knowles dual driver TWFK-31082 (greatly improved over the 30017) - specifically tuned to squeeze every last bit of performance from them. These four drivers per ear are combine to provide thunderous lows, lush vocals, and sweet highs for a sound that you won't forget anytime soon.
Learining from the past - Inspired by the streamliner era
When designing the FH5, we wanted a design that not only represented practicality but also would evoke an emotional response. We ended up taking insertion from the iconic designs of the exotic streamliner wehicles of the early 20th century that exactly represent this essence. The textured, sweeping lines across the body of the FH5 recall a time where humanity relentless pursued both beauty and functionality, just like the FH5 itself does.
MMCX connectors give you more ways to play
The connectors on the FH5's cable make it easy as possible to connect to other devices, with its elbow plug; and to easily be changed, with the grippy MMCX connectors coloured blue and red to easily identify the left and right channels.
A flexible sheath on the outside hides a robust core on the inside high-purity mono crystalline silver-plated copper wire
The high-purity mono crystalline silver-plated copper wire makes up the FH5's hybrid cable effective minimizes distortion and signal transmission loss for the best sound quality possible. These wires are braided together in environmentally-friendly, transparent TPU sheath that allows you to appreciate the craftsmanship involved in making the cable.
Precisely machined aluminium alloy shell for easier insertion into your ear
The shell of the FH5 is of aluminium alloy precisely machined with cmc technology, ensuring that it will continue to lister for years to come. The FH5's shell designed is also reminiscent of custom in-ears, which not only provides an extremely comfortable fit but also shines as a stylish accessory to wear.
Secure fit around the ear means you can create your own slice of musical heaven anywhere
The crescent shape of the FH5 units are specifically designed to conform to the human ear and provide a snug, comfortable fit. The isolation this design provides allows you to focus on your music even if you are on a busy street or next to a raucous party.
Hi-Res Audio Certification
The FH5 has been certified by the Japan Audio Society to be "Hi-Res Audio" capable. This means that the FH5 is capable of a frequency response up to 40kHz, 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.
No matter if you're a giant or just a normal person - Get the fit that's right for you
Not only can the cable be easily exchanged, the ear tips can be too. Included with the FH5 are three different sets of small, medium and large pairs of ear tips: one set for balanced sound, another set from enhanced bass response, and finally one for enhanced vocals. Also included are three pairs of foam ear tips in all medium. With the great variety of bundled ear tips, anybody can tailor that sound to what they want in absolute comfort.
