If you’re someone who enjoys listening to music while commuting, then you know the value of a good pair of headphones or earphones.

Designed to be trusty companions, these headphones and devices are cleverly engineered with the latest technology to offer the ultimate combination of portability + hi-fidelity.

Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.

Headphones and devices designed to work with Android and iOS come in wired and wireless formats. Quite often you will also find Hi-Fi equipment offering direct connectivity to devices with Android and iOS to simplify the connectivity process.

Tangle-Free Cables

Every time you reach for the headphone cables to connect them to your headphones, and no matter how neatly you wrapped them up, they end up in a giant Gordian knot of frustration. Tangled cables are the bane of modern existence, and everyone owning a wired pair of headphones or IEM can attest to this. With advances in cable making techniques and radical approaches to manufacturing, there are now several solutions to this universal problem. You get Flat cables, Mesh Design cables, cables coated with exterior covers and cables designed with a zipper style design to avoid Tangle and attempt to solve the issue.

Super Lightweight Design

When you want to be constantly hooked to your music, you’d need a pair of lightweight headphones – one that you can wear and forget about instead of one that keeps pressing you down with its weight. And contrary to popular belief, the sound quality of your headphones doesn’t change with weight. Recent designs have combined durable, yet light materials to construct lightweight headphones that are sleeker, trendier and more comfortable than ever before. Of course, lightweight headphones are also easy to take along wherever you go – they don’t add weight to your bag or occupy too much space.

Headlining the FiiO catalog, the FA9 boasts of an outstanding build quality, good ergonomics and a great sound. The FA9 does have a core sound signature with the sounds switches allowing one to meddle with the curve selectively and at will.

A RARE 6 KNOWLES BA DRIVER SETUP FOR A BREATHTAKING SONIC EXPERIENCE

Six Knowles BA drivers per ear, a calibrated 4-way crossover, and a low-frequency ultra-long sound tube are all incorporated in FiiO FA9's design. The FiiO FA9 takes care of the entire audible frequency range with excellence. There is a dedicated SWFK-31376 driver for high and ultra-high frequencies that unite extreme resolution and rich sound. The EJ-33877 custom driver, which FiiO and Knowles collaboratively developed, manages the mid frequencies. The HODVTEC-31618 driver and two woofers perform an excellent job of delivering dynamic and bone-shattering bass with smooth texture. With such a setup at play, you are all set to experience sound like never before.

FIRST-EVER COLLABORATION BETWEEN FIIO AND KNOWLES FOR A CUSTOM BA DRIVER

This is the first time FiiO is utilising EJ balanced armature drivers from Knowles. Both FiiO and Knowles worked collectively to come up with a custom EJ-33877 driver specifically for the FA9. This custom driver delivers mid frequencies with lifelike vocals and instruments.

Headphone-Zone-FiiO-FA9
Headphone-Zone-FiiO-FA9

MASTERFULLY TUNED ACOUSTIC FILTER FOR SMOOTH FREQUENCY RESPONSE AND TEXTURED BASS

To produce the purest sound and seamless integration of multiple drivers, FiiO employed a specially-designed, 80.6mm long sound tube in the FA9. This tube functions as a low-pass filter that keeps unnecessary extra mids and highs away from the driver resulting in a stable frequency response. Moreover, the tube enhances the mids to sound more smooth and clean while also improving the texture of the bass.

3 SOUND ADJUSTMENT SWITCHES THAT LET YOU TAILOR THE MUSIC JUST THE WAY YOU WANT IT

Explore the freedom of tuning the sound as per your preference with the FiiO FA9. The FA9 has an electronic crossover technology consisting of 3 sound adjustment switches. Adjust the impedance, sensitivity, bass, mids and treble for a personalised music listening experience. When switch S1 is turned on, it lowers the impedance and increases sensitivity making the FA9 simple to use with smartphones, tablets, and computers. When switch S1 is turned off, it increases the impedance for a more clean and natural sound, with a darker background and lower audible noise. When switch S2 is turned on, it increases the treble delivering pristine highs. When switch S2 is turned off, you will experience a balanced sound with a lower treble response. When switch S3 is turned on, it reduces the bass and increases mids which adds resolution and good timbre to vocals and instruments like guitars, to name a few. When switch S3 is turned off, it elevates bass and mids are recessed, useful when listening to classical or orchestral music.


Headphone-Zone-FiiO-FA9

FOUR-WAY CROSSOVER DESIGN WITH 80.6MM ULTRA-LONG SOUND TUBE DELIVERING SEAMLESS PERFORMANCE

When there are multiple drivers at work, seamless performance becomes a challenge. To address this, the FiiO FA9 has a four-way crossover design. To achieve the purest sound performance and to ensure the multiple drivers do not interfere with each other, the FA9 employs a specially-designed, ultra-long sound tube of 80.6mm in length. This tube acts as a low-pass filter that effectively filters out unneeded extra mids and highs from the drivers to ensure a seamless frequency response. This design perfectly binds the drivers in perfect harmony for coherent low, middle, high, and ultra-high frequencies. The powerful bass, precise yet rich vocals, and detailed yet enjoyable treble on the FA9 will make you appreciate the details and intricacies of your music that you might've been missing all this while.

Headphone-Zone-FiiO-FA9

DESIGNED WITH 4TH GEN DLP 3D PRINTING & DIAMOND-CUT FACEPLATE FOR SHEER ELEGANCE

The use of DLP 3D printing technology gives the shell of the FA9 a distinct look that stands apart from other 3D printed headphones. The highly advanced 4th gen DLP 3D printing technology employed in designing the exterior shell of the FA9. A brand-new diamond-cut faceplate that perfectly complements the translucent-black resin shell is what gives the FA9 a stunning appearance. Instead of using conventional resin, the FA9 uses German, EU IIA approved, high transparency resin that is renowned for its skin-friendly texture, comfort, and stain resistance. The FA9 will astound you with its breathtaking beauty.

Great Earphones

After burning in for 36 hours these earphones come out with great detail and clarity. The bass response is extremely smooth. To cut the story short, if you can get another earphone with similar performance, you will probably have to spend double the money.

Flagship BA IEM

I'm writing this review after about 30 hours of burning in which may not be sufficient for these brilliant IEMs.
The FA9 was in fact a chance buy from Headphonezone.in as an order for the FH7 got scammed in Dallas after the Amazom.com seller dispatched an empty box.
These are one mean pair of IEMs with a lot of scope for configuration exploration. The dip switches are quite sensitive though the differences in tonality and impedance need to be discovered by intent listening of high res recordings. It's basically, experimentation and pretty subjective.
The FA9 has a pretty decent sound stage and great separation. Not to mention a very clean and warm sound signature. The cross over frequencies have a definite threshold and does not interfere with each other. The mid bass and sub bass are both well accentuated and has the optimal punch and depth. The mids and vocals have a distinct clarity. Not overwhelming or muffled, perfectly balanced. The highs have a softness and warmth to it. I didn't experience sibilance or screeching even while listening to complex tracks. Smooth as butter I would say. I tried listening to reggae, retro, house, jazz, classical etc on Spotify and everywhere these IEMs stood out well. I have been using the Fiio BTR5 2021 2.5mm out to drive this iem and didn't have to go beyond 60% volume.
There was a noticeable difference while listening to DSD tracks on my AK Junior though. These IEMs show their true colours through the balanced out on a dedicated DAP.
The fit is very much comfortable and conducive to long hours of listening. There was no listening fatigue whatsoever. The cable is premium and manageable. Fiio has given quite a few options with regards to ear tips though I did not have to switch.
In summary, the Fiio FA9 has given its competitors a run for their worth as it falls into the premium segment though priced decently. For those who cannot afford the likes of Andromeda or Layla, I recommend this one. A really great option.
