FiiO FH11: Latest Affordable DD+BA Dual Driver Hybrid IEMs
FiiO holds a prominent position in the HiFi audio industry, renowned for its extensive array of offerings encompassing in-ear monitors, digital audio players, and beyond. Standing out as one of the industry’s most active participants, FiiO consistently unveils new products throughout the year. Recently, FiiO has made a significant impact in the realm of budget-friendly audio solutions. A few months ago, they introduced the FD11, a single dynamic driver entry-level IEM. Building upon this momentum, we proudly present their latest creation, the FIiO FH11, a dual-driver hybrid IEM. Both the FD11 and the FH11 belong to FiiO’s cutting-edge “Bionic Conch” series of IEMs, a lineup characterized by its commitment to exceptional sound quality, captivating aesthetics, and affordability.
With its dual-driver hybrid configuration, the FiiO FH11 showcases a 10mm dynamic driver featuring a carbon-based diaphragm, harmoniously complemented by a custom-designed Balanced Armature driver aimed at enriching the treble frequencies. The official launch of the FIiO FH11 arrives at an incredibly accessible price point of $49.99.
As previously mentioned, the FH11 boasts a dual-driver hybrid design, housing a 10mm carbon-based dynamic driver and a tailor-made Balanced Armature driver on each side. Distinguished by its lightweight and robust carbon-based diaphragm—surpassing the traditional use of aluminum alloy or beryllium—the dynamic driver exudes a clear lower-end, characterized by dynamic punch and captivating midrange clarity. A meticulously crafted custom Balanced Armature driver complements the dynamic driver, imparting crisp and well-defined treble frequencies. The FH11 boasts a finely-tuned frequency response that delivers a warm, smooth sonic presentation. This results in a rapid, punchy, and dynamic lower-end output, complemented by lucid vocals and instruments presented with a seamless finesse.
The dual drivers are ingeniously housed within a three-chamber acoustic cavity structure, an acoustic arrangement meticulously conceived by FiiO’s team of seasoned audio engineers. Augmenting this design, the FH11 incorporates a precise dampening structure, managing the air pressure within each individual chamber. Further enhancing the auditory experience, the FH11 employs a C-shaped acoustic flute design, harmoniously integrating with the three-chamber acoustic configuration. This synergy yields a clear, refined sound presentation that impeccably complements an array of music genres.
The FH11 stands as an embodiment of exquisite craftsmanship, exemplified by its striking aesthetics rooted in a liquid die-cast zinc alloy construction. The lightweight shells are meticulously designed, culminating in a comfortable and ergonomic fit for a wide range of users. A high-quality 120-core oxygen-free copper cable is employed, featuring standard 0.78mm 2-pin connectors, facilitating effortless future upgrades or replacements. The FH11’s standard 3.5mm termination ensures compatibility with a diverse array of sources across the globe. Promising an unparalleled sonic experience and boasting a captivating design, the FiiO FH11 is meticulously fine-tuned to deliver a true Hi-Res audio encounter. With an alluring price point of just $49.99, the FiiO FH11 represents an exceptional offering.
