Among its impressive lineup are successful series like the single dynamic driver “FD” series and the hybrid driver “FH” series. Adding to its repertoire, FiiO introduces the all-new FiiO FX15, marking the launch of a brand-new series. With the FX15, FiiO ventures into hybrid territory, incorporating an innovative EST driver setup. Through meticulous research and professional fine-tuning, FiiO has achieved unparalleled, pure high-resolution sound output with the remarkable FX15. Let’s delve into the details of this exceptional pair. The FiiO FX15 is now available for an official launch price of $799.99 through official channels.
The FX15 is a harmonious blend of three distinct driver types. It boasts a customized 10mm DLC dynamic driver unit, ensuring powerful bass response. Adding to the equation is a high-performance Knowles balanced armature (BA) driver, delivering crisp midrange and smooth treble. Notably, the FX15 incorporates four units of low-voltage EST (electrostatic) drivers from SONION on each side. Carefully selected, these EST drivers bring forth sharp high-definition response in the high-frequency range. Expertly tuned, the FiiO FX15 faithfully reproduces your music, capturing nuanced details and enhancing every listening session.
Collaborating closely with HexGears, a leading 3D printing brand in China, FiiO has meticulously designed the ergonomic and lightweight shell of the FX15. Each earpiece weighs a mere 6 grams, ensuring comfort during extended wear. Employing high-precision DLP 3D printing technology, the triangular-shaped earpieces exhibit a visually stunning “Sound and Shape” inspired design. The FX15’s visual appeal is further accentuated by its designer face covers, adorned with a conceptual geometric theme.
An innovative feature of the FiiO FX15 is its patented S.Turbo acoustic design architecture. This includes an ultra-thin and elongated acoustic tube that significantly enhances bass response. Additionally, users have the ability to enable or disable the EST drivers. A switch offers control over the EST driver functionality, with “On” activating the EST drivers and “Off” deactivating them.
The FiiO FX15 arrives with an assortment of premium accessories, including multiple sets of high-quality eartips and the HB1 carry case. The package includes a high-purity sterling silver stock cable featuring MMCX connectors and a swappable termination plug system. Users are provided with both 3.5mm single-ended and 4.4mm balanced plugs, offering convenient interchangeability.
Representing a breath of fresh air in the realm of hybrid IEMs, the FiiO FX15 boldly integrates EST drivers alongside traditional DD and BA drivers. The result is an exceptional performance, characterized by high-end sound resolution and remarkable sonic capabilities. The FiiO FX15 is now officially launched, available at $799.99 worldwide!!
