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 THE NEW SOUND EVALUATION METHOD
The team at Final spared no effort in terms of engineering and designing the A4000. 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 “transparent sound”, which means that even sound images concentrated distantly can be heard clearly, for various genres of music. The Final A4000 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.
HIGH-QUALITY MATERIALS USED IN EVERY ASPECT OF THE BUILD
The Final A4000 is made with premium quality materials and the utmost attention to detail for preferable results. The housing of the A4000 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.
REDESIGNED CHASSIS OFFERING A STABLE WEARING EXPERIENCE
The design for the chassis of the Final A4000 has been completely reimagined and re-engineered to offer utmost comfort. Unlike most IEMs on the market, which is designed with an ergonomic shape that rests heavily on the ear and silicone ear tips to keep them in place, the A4000 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.
STATIC NOISE SUPPRESSING OFC CABLE WITH 2PIN CONNECTOR
Final A4000 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. A4000 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.
HIGH-QUALITY EAR HOOKS INCLUDED FOR A COMFORTABLE WEARING EXPERIENCE
The A4000 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 SILICONE EAR-TIPS AND CASE INCLUDED
The ear tips for the Final A4000 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 A4000 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 A4000 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.

The lows and the highs are very much accentuated. You can feel the movement of the frequencies back and forward throughout any track. Its almost like you are circling through the lows, mids and highs through every track. Very punchy bass. I listened to 'The Man-Machine' by Kraftwerk on Tidal to come to my conclusion. It is bright indeed when the highs are being played back. Overall, really nice soundstage. I would keep listening to them and probably give my final verdict after a certain burn-in period.
Thank you for the detailed review, appreciate it!
little bit bright ...better to listen at low volume....i am using schiit stack .......try to get warm source if u plan to get a4000.......... maybe after burn in period it might not sound as bright............ i have the A3000 its little bit warm ...and dark .......if u r sensitive to bright earphone go for a3000....instrument separation is good in both A3000 and A4000...or try E series from final....E3000 is a good choice and cheap too........ good sound stage....good clarity . maybe after 200 hrs of burn in period it might get better.
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!
initial impressions: it shines very good with my sony zx507. this is something i didnt expect it it sync sooo good. definitely worth the price. the quality and quantity of sound of an iem depends on the source. i am definetely impressed with the wide sound stage, resolution and mids. this iem definitely requires a good source else it may not sound as per its capabilities.
Been searching for iems with good soundstage for a long time. Unfortunately couldn't get LZ A6. Some reviews say it has the biggest soundstage.
I already have the soundmagic e80c which has a wide soundstage (with wide bore tips) and penetrates to the sub bass region
On seeing the reviews on A4000 i decided to try... and yes really good soundstage... tuning, both e80c and A4000 are alike. Both handle music, movies very well.
The only difference is the E80C is untamed and A4000 is tamed...
Just unpacked and listened for an hour. First impression is very positive. It sounds really good even before any burn in. Exceptional packaging care from Final, never saw any manufacturer putting this much effort into packaging. Literally everything inside the box was covered with plastic. I'm really grateful to headphonezone for bringing Final and Austrian Audio to your store. Once the burn in is completed I'll post a detailed review.
Glad to know you are liking the A4000 & we are eager to know your second thoughts on this pair of IEM. Hope to read it soon. Cheers!
