Final Audio A3000 delivers nothing short of stunning clear sound, imaging and layering, which makes each instrument in your music pop out. If you’re looking for a quality IEM, the A3000 is a great place to start.
THE PINNACLE OF CUTTING-EDGE JAPANESE ENGINEERING
Final makes use of high precision Japanese engineering with focus on finesse and accuracy. Adopting cutting edge technology with high attention to detail and the highest quality of audio design, Final has carved a name for itself amongst audiophiles winning multiple awards over the years.
CREATING VALUABLE ANTIQUES, NOT JUST PRODUCTS
The team at Final strongly believes in creating earphones and headphones that are highly revered by people. Final earphones, like Swiss wristwatches and German Cars must be built to last forever and used as valuable antiques. The result of such careful consideration is a long-lasting, rational & emotionally valuable asset with the best sound quality and best design.
CRAFTED IN KAWASAKI, JAPAN SINCE 1974
At the Final factory, the team of audio designers are dedicated to innovating audio products through research. Unlike other OEM manufacturers, they believe in designing their products in-house. This facilitates internal feedback between various teams and departments, encouraging the process for developing a long lasting product.
A PROUD SHOWCASE OF JAPANESE HERITAGE AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
Final has a state-of-the-art company-owned “Final Store” located in Tokyo, Japan. This is open to all music lovers and audio enthusiasts to come in and experience Final’s range of headphones & earphones. The store proudly showcases their Japanese heritage and cultural artefacts. This represents Final's deep respect for the audio purist.
F-CORE DU DRIVERS TUNED WITH SOUND QUALITY EVALUATION METHOD FOR CLEAN AUDIO
The team at Final spared no effort in terms of engineering and designing the A3000. This in-ear monitor features a new and redesigned f-Core DU driver that delivers high-quality, precise sound. This 6mm driver outputs a natural sound that’s crisp and clear. The development of the driver called for innovations in production machinery, adhesives, the diaphragm design and the voice coils. The precision involved in the assembling process for the driver unit is of utmost importance. With this dynamic driver, you experience astonishingly natural sound, with each sound vividly concentrated over the comfortably wide soundstage. The Final A3000 is tuned incorporating the latest sound quality evaluation method in conjunction with Final’s commitment to detailed sound expression, which results in a realistic sound.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL IN EVERY ASPECT OF THE BUILD
The Final A3000 is made with premium quality materials and the utmost attention to detail for preferable results.The housing of the A3000 is made of brass instead of traditional aluminium. This decision was implemented as brass is highly resistant to the effects of magnetism and has a high specific gravity, favourable for making the IEMs. To increase the time response characteristic of the diaphragm, the voice coil is made from 30μ ultra-thin CCAW, and a minimum of adhesive is used for assembly to lighten the moving parts. The diaphragm is pressed in small lots of about 1/3 the normal size to constrain pressure deviation, resulting in a uniformly shaped diaphragm with no deformation. These design decisions and selected materials are contributing elements enhancing the sound quality of the earphones.
UNIQUE CHASSIS DESIGN FOR A STABLE FITTING EARPIECE
The design for the chassis of the Final A3000 has been completely reimagined and re-engineered to offer utmost comfort. Unlike most IEMs on the market, which are designed with an ergonomic shape that rests heavily on the ear and silicone ear tips to keep them in place, the A3000 limits the area that comes in contact with the ear, aiming to achieve a sense of fit with no feeling of oppression. In simpler words, the featured chassis is designed to limit the amount of contact between the housing and the ear. This makes it comfortable and ensures a stable fit for a variety of people.
TOUCH NOISE SUPPRESSING OFC CABLE WITH 2PIN CONNECTOR
Final A3000 employs a thick and flexible cable to prevent breakage and tangling whilst using the earphones. The cable is made of soft, supple coating material designed to eliminate static noises. A3000 utilises a more flexible OFC (oxygen-free copper) cable to transmit better audio signals from a device to the IEM. This design drastically suppresses touch noise when the connecting cable touches the body. The earphones feature a 2Pin connector with the highest versatility φ0.78 standard and an L-shaped jack to further solidify the durability and upgradability. This durable cable and connector make connecting to a source device easy and seamless.
BUNDLED WITH HIGH-QUALITY EAR HOOKS FOR A COMFORTABLE WEARING EXPERIENCE
The A3000 comes bundled with premium quality ear hooks that are crafted to fit everyone. The team at Final considered the key aspects to designing an ear hook that was comfortable to wear and discovered a form that was smaller than most existing ear hooks and that didn't utilise metal or resin wires. This decision allowed for a slimmer ear hook and one that feels premium to the touch. These ear hooks also feature an affixed lock (B Type) that is capable of holding the cable firmly in place, allowing the user to wear the earphones for extended periods and enjoy their music.
HIGH QUALITY EAR-TIPS AND A SILICONE CASE INCLUDED FOR ALL USERS
The ear tips for the Final A3000 have been designed from soft silicone for superior comfort and noise isolation. These come in 5 sizes and the right and left earbuds have different coloured markings for easy recognisability and the different sizes also ensure that the sound is transmitted directly to the eardrum. Two types of silicon differing in rigidity are employed for the sound conduit and for the earbud that comes into contact with the user’s ear. The silicon used for the sound conduit is more rigid than that used for the earbud, and having groove processing applied to it, combines both strength and flexibility. These earphones also come bundled with a silicone carry case. With this silicon carry case, the cables can be rolled up and stored easily. The earphones themselves are gently secured using thin dome-shaped silicon covers making them perfect to carry along with you.
ENGINEERED TO SOUND STUNNING WITH REGULAR USE
The Final A3000 comes embedded with driver units with a diaphragm attached to a voice coil and adhesive agent. With audio signals flowing, the diaphragm moves in minute increments along with the voice coil allowing the sound to be produced. Over time, the diaphragm moves efficiently and the sound changes or ‘ages’. The A3000 has a small aperture, and so an extended period is necessary for changes through ageing to become noticeable. When used for over 150-200 hours, it should feel as though the sound has become stable. Favourable outcomes can be obtained through the ageing of the product, by listening to the music you normally listen to at a volume you usually listen to.

HOW TO WEAR THE EARPHONES
This product is an earphone that is hung over the ear. The transmission of touch noise to the ear can be prevented by placing the cable on the ear to achieve a comfortable fit.
ä If the cable does not fit on the back of the ear, please use the ear hook accessory.
ä If the fit is too loose, try changing the size of the sleeve. In some cases, the size of the left and right earpieces may be different.

Own KZ ZS-10 pro, Final E3000 and Meze 99 classics with all the purchases made in the last 2-3 months. I somehow felt that Final E3000 had the best tuning and all the songs in my playlist sounded best in it. The only hitch being poor quality cable and the tiny housing making it occasionally slip from my ears. Took a leap of faith and put my bet on Final Audio brand in my quest for perfect IEM/ headphone. Happy to say that my search has successfully ended with A3000. I am so impressed by their products now that it is going to be my favourite brand in future too just like headphone zone as the perfect place to buy audio gear !
Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience & thank you for the great review & ratings!
I have tested this headphone along with my hifiman sundara on ifi hip dac v2. you may not believe it it is sounding better than sundara. sundara was conntected through balance cable and A3000 connected through normal 3.5 at the same time on ifi hip dac v2. instrument separation and clarity are better than sundara. Sundara (30 days older than A3000) and A3000 both are new. Waiting for both of them to be more open up.
A3000 need amp to perform, At my tempo tech sonata hd pro, it was not sounding good.
We are delighted to know that you are liking the product. Thank you for the awesome review & ratings, Rajan Srivastava!
This is only my second ever IEM, the first being the KZ Crn Zex Pro.
After having it for all of 3 days and spending the majority of them getting comfortable with them, they definitely get better as the drivers bed in and age, right now I find they sound particularly sweet with smooth jazz even at lower volumes.
Initially, at least in my experience, since I generally like listening at a 45 to 60% volume, I found them to be a little sluggish and mild until given more volume input while being driven by a smartphone, that does seem to be improving again with use, as I get more accustomed to the sound and also as the drivers age(Final mentions that they start to sound better after a good 150 to 200 hours of use)
The fit is very comfy and I haven't encountered much discomfort as I get used to wearing them. They are also light, especially compared to my Kz crn zex pro and while that used to stick out a fair bit when worn, the A3000 sits in quite flush with my ears.
The sound signature definitely suits my listening preference, it isn't overly harsh in the treble especially which I would find fatiguing otherwise. And detail wise they present quite well.
I now wonder how they would sound with a portable DAC/amp. But I'm quite happy with them and enjoying the improvement in sound and delivery as I continue to use them.
I must also commend the Headphone Zone for making all these lovely pieces available to folks. Thank you for aiding me with my music listening!
Headphone like sound that is composed and clear with adequate amp-ing.
Good vocals and instrumental separation.
Treble clear, not at all sibilant even at high volumes. (save my ears from Dunu DN2000J)
Balanced sound for fatigue free long listening.
Balanced - Except for the Surprisingly deep bass that remains well hidden, unless it is present the composition.
Comfortable ear tips, cable with minimal microphonics.
The atmosphere of movies presented perfectly in the soundstage, with distant sounds appearing distant, lets you hear it if you listen for it, not distracting you from the main event. Deep bass lets you feel the thumping club house environment and drops dead silent when scene shifts to the night time street.
Not at all brilliant or engaging by itself. Can sound 'meh' with poorly powered source. Takes 150-200 hours of burn-in according to Final.
Using Modi Multibit + Samson QH4 Headphone amp : gives you a wonderful soundstage with well defined sonic image, conveying the rhythm and melody native to the composition, without adding colour by itself.
Using Modi Multibit + Magni 3 Headphone amp : with Magni magic, the experience is Euphonic eye closing toe tapping sound. Track: Bruno Mars - Leave the Door Open - Cover by String Trio - Simply Three
the best iem I ever had. A huge upgrade from my blons.
Thank you for the awesome review!
The sound is smooth. And right now burning them. Balanced sound.
We're really happy that you have such great thoughts about the product and thanks for the amazing review!
