Planar Magnetic Drivers

Planar magnetic drivers combine characteristics of several driver types. They employ magnetic fields akin to dynamic and balanced armature drivers. However, planar magnetic drivers, like electrostatic drivers, use a flat, thin diaphragm in contrast to a coil. The planar drivers are known for their quick transient response.


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.

Open-Back Design

Headphones with an open-back design, allow air to pass through the earcups. This means that Open-Backs do not block any noise from around you, as closed-backs do, and music being heard will also leak outside to people around you. So they can only be heard in a quiet environment.


However, Open-back headphones do sound more natural and open. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting audio as if you are sitting at a live concert. Audiophiles swear by open-back headphones, and they sound quite different to closed-backs.


These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions, mixing and mastering music. They have an accurate soundstage presentation and precise imaging.

FEATURES 90MM PLANAR MAGNETIC DRIVER WITH AN ULTRA-THIN DIAPHRAGM FOR CLEAN SOUND

The remarkable FiiO FT5 incorporates an impressive 90mm planar magnetic driver, distinguishing itself from traditional dynamic drivers by achieving a more balanced conversion of sound energy to sound waves. This is achieved through a more even vibration pattern across the entire driver diaphragm, minimising distortion caused by diaphragm material rigidity. The FT5 excels in faithfully expressing audio signals, ensuring a lossless hi-fi sound experience that accurately reproduces every nuance. To optimise the planar magnetic driver, FiiO's development team determined that a 6μm thickness diaphragm strikes the ideal balance between sound performance and reliability. The diaphragm, crafted from PAR, serves as the backbone for the FT5's exceptional dynamics, highly detailed sound, and the incorporation of rich bass—an attribute not commonly associated with planar magnetic headphones.

MICRON PLATED ALUMINIUM -SILVER ALLOY COIL WITH NANOSCALE DIAPHRAGM COATING PROCESS

Within the flat driver diaphragm featuring a printed coil, the majority of weight concentrates on the metal-coated voice coils. Throughout the development of the FT5, the R&D engineers faced the challenge of considering how these interact with the 6μm thin diaphragm and the density and conductivity of the coils themselves. After extensive examination and testing of commonly used materials for plating planar coils, FiiO engineers concluded that the lighter aluminium alloy material was optimal. Additionally, silver was identified as enhancing coil conductivity, facilitating easier powering of the driver without compromising the high-frequency detail and rich sound characteristic of exemplary planar magnetic drivers. The FT5's driver coils, printed onto the diaphragm using cutting-edge semiconductor industry technology, ensure a more consistent thickness and evenly distributed weight, resulting in more uniform diaphragms for an accurate sound experience.

EMPLOYING 20 N52 NEODYMIUM MAGNETS TO BRING OUT THE FULL POTENTIAL OF THE DRIVER

The FiiO FT5 utilises N52 neodymium magnets with a magnetic density of up to 1.5T to generate the robust forces necessary for driving the substantial planar magnetic driver. These magnets are strategically positioned parallel to the coils on the driver, ensuring an even distribution of voice coils within the magnetic field to optimise the driving force of the headphones and unleash the complete potential of the planar magnetic driver. For comfort, 11 magnets are positioned on the interior of the FT5's planar magnetic driver, complemented by an additional 9 on the exterior, totalling 20 magnets per channel and 40 magnets overall for the entire headphone. This meticulous magnet arrangement facilitates an equitable distribution of aluminium alloy coils within the magnetic field. It also ensures a balanced interaction between the forces of the inner and outer magnets, promoting consistent driver movement and consequently minimising distortion, resulting in a heightened fidelity sound experience.

OPEN-BACK ACOUSTIC STRUCTURE FUSED WITH AN EASY-TO-POWER, HIGH-SENSITIVITY DESIGN

To achieve its exceptional sound quality, the FiiO FT5 boasts a large 90mm planar magnetic driver featuring 20 magnets on a single side. Enhancing its performance further, the FT5 incorporates a specially designed open-backed acoustic structure. The rear of the driver housing acts as a sound wave baffle, effectively isolating sound waves in the front and rear sections. The meticulously engineered grille accelerates airflow during driver movement, ensuring unparalleled treble resolution and a vast soundstage for an immersive auditory experience. Unlike traditional planar magnetic headphones with low sensitivity, the FT5, equipped with 20 neodymium magnets boasting high magnetic density and a 6μm thin diaphragm, achieves a sensitivity of 110dB/1Vrms@1kHz (96dB/mW@1kHz). This design allows the FT5 to be easily driven by portable players, delivering a "Golden Hall" of sound quality wherever you go.

EXPERTLY DESIGNED WITH LIGHTWEIGHT MAGNESIUM ALUMINIUM ALLOY CONSTRUCTION

With a keen awareness of the substantial vibrations produced by the expansive 90mm planar magnetic driver, the FiiO FT5 is crafted from metal, offering superior resistance to the vibrations generated during music playback, especially for bass-heavy tracks. This metal construction surpasses the damping capabilities of plastic enclosures. The intricate design of a planar magnetic driver, including the arrangement and quantity of magnets, directly influences its weight. Therefore, the choice of materials for the outer shell must meticulously balance sound quality and weight. The FiiO FT5 employs a magnesium-aluminium alloy construction, leveraging the lighter density of magnesium-aluminium alloy, which is only 64% as dense as conventional aluminium alloy. This design choice ensures the FT5 remains lightweight, facilitating extended and comfortable listening sessions. The FT5 inherits the excellent 3-axis swivelling design used on other FT series of headphones. This allows the earcups to freely rotate and attach to your head no matter the angle or size of your head, for improved quality and better seal.

METICULOUSLY TUNED TO MOVE YOU AND PRESENT AN EXCELLENT FULL-RANGE PHASE COHERENCE

The FiiO FT5 stands as a planar magnetic headphone, showcasing a unique design where the coils of its planar driver are meticulously distributed across the diaphragm. In contrast to dynamic drivers, which vibrate at specific points, the planar driver's vibration extends across the entire diaphragm surface. This results in a more harmonised movement throughout the driver, leading to improved phase distortion when compared to dynamic drivers. Extensive simulations and analysis of abundant experimental data guide the optimal placement of the FT5's planar driver coils. This strategic arrangement ensures an evenly distributed magnetic field, promoting consistent phase performance across all frequencies and delivering a clean and authentic listening experience.

BUNDLED WITH A HIGH-PURITY CABLE WITH INTERCHANGEABLE PLUGS, EAR PADS AND A LEATHER CASE

The FiiO FT5 features a 1.5m cable composed of 392 silver-plated monocrystalline copper wires, each boasting a 23AWG diameter. These copper wires contribute to a robust and highly detailed sound, ensuring the transmission of lossless audio directly to the listener. The FT5 includes four interchangeable audio plugs: 3.5mm/4.4mm, a 3.5mm to 6.35mm adapter, and a 4.4mm XLR-4 balanced adapter. Additionally, it provides two types of earpads, each offering a distinct sonic profile—Suede for balanced sound and enhanced atmosphere, and Protein leather for clean sound, a wide soundstage, and high detail. The FT5 is accompanied by a lightweight yet opulent leather storage case, offering comfortable protection for your headphones.
