FiiO FH5S Latest Hybrid IEMs Announced
Yesterday at their spring launch event, FiiO has announced its latest hybrid pair of in-ear monitors, the FiiO FH5s. It is actually one of their highly anticipated pair as they have been teasing its details from the past few days through social media channels. The latest FH5s coming as a successor to the highly successful FH5 brings many new features such as new driver architecture, advanced semi-open back cavity design, professional electronic crossover, improved cable with replaceable termination plugs, and more. FiiO FH5s comes at a very attractive price tag of just 269.99$ with two stunning color options black and silver.

Latest 2BA+2DD Driver Configuration:-
FiiO has designed a new 2 BA and 2 DD driver configuration for the latest FH5s. There is a large 12mm dynamic driver with beryllium-coated diaphragm producing deep punchy lower end paired with a 6mm dynamic driver for lovely, airy mid-frequency response. Knowles TWFK-30017 dual BA driver placed directly in the sound nozzle produces lively and energetic treble frequencies.. This is a new trend where High-frequency drivers are placed directly in the sound nozzle, it helps in achieving wider and lossless response.
Professional Electronic Crossover:-
Multi-driver IEMs are prone to distortion issues in the output due to crossover requirements of multiple drivers. FiiO has equipped the FH5s with a professionally designed electronic crossover. They have precisely tuned each driver to focus on their alloted frequency response only. This results in a clean, distortion-free sound ouptut with the FH5s.
Three Tuning Switches, Eight Sound Profiles:-
FiiO FH5s features three different sound tuning switches that correspond to different frequencies such as Bass, Mids, and Treble. Users can play with these and experience eight different sound tunings possible with the pair.
Semi-Open Back Architecture With TRISHELL Design:-
FiiO has designed the earpieces in FH5s with a semi-open back architecture that ensures the air pressure at the front and rear cavities are balanced resulting in a larger soundstage and a more comfortable listening experience with the pair. The pair employs the TRISHELL “sandwich” structural design, with 5-axis CNC machined aluminum-magnesium alloy shells, body, and front covers solidly fixed together at 3 points to greatly reduce excess resonance and distortion in the output.
High-Purity Litz-Type Braided Cable:-
FiiO FH5s comes bundled with a high-purity monocrystalline silver-plated copper cable with standard MMCX connectors and a replaceable termination plug system similar to that with the single DD flagship FiiO FD5. The package includes 2.5mm, 4.4mm, and 3.5mm termination plug options.
FiiO is releasing some pretty decent products in its range. With the FH5s they are revamping an already successful product with all the latest tech and glitters. The latest implementation of 2BA+2DD quad driver setup looks pretty interesting and powerful. Also, the price is quite attractive at just 269.99$, it would be really nice to see how this will compare with other pairs in the market.
