Description

A transparent look into the extraordinary

The FA1’s arresting ripple texture faceplate is complemented by an equally stunning transparent body, allowing you to marvel at design and care that went into every detail of the in-ear monitor’s design.

The balanced armature drivers in the FA1, in conjunction with the specially designed micrometer sound tube, have been tuned to provide a natural yet smooth sounding frequency response, free from any dips or peaks. With the FA1, you will get robust yet quick bass, wonderfully rich mids, and treble dripping with detail and speed that only balanced armature drivers can provide.

Smooth, velvety yet precise balanced armature sound

The FA1 is created with advanced industrial-grade 3D printers utilizing DLP printing technology with resolution up to 25um. Compared to traditional molding or injection molding processes, 3D printing in conjunction with sophisticated digital modeling allows us to achieve more unit-to-unit consistency and better overall sound.

Unparalleled precision from cutting-edge 3D printing

Customized Knowles driver for mesmerizing sound, every time

Inside the FA1 is a specially-customized balanced armature driver co-developed by FiiO and Knowles that especially capitalizes on the strengths of BA drivers for excellent sound. And with its low 15-ohm impedance you can be sure the FA1 will sound good out of anything, even from your phone!

Choosing the perfect outer shell

The outer shell of the FA1 employs a skin-friendly resin material, specifically chosen for maximum wearing comfort and for its ability to durably retain its color and luster for years to come.

Included with the FA1 are a waterproof carrying case, a cleaning brush, ear tips optimized for bass (3 pairs), and ear tips optimized for a balanced sound signature (3 pairs) so that you are immediately ready to listen the way you want to.

The attention to detail starts with the accessories

Democratizing great sound for the common person

FiiO has never been about making greedy amounts of profit – rather, we aim to provide great sound that is actually affordable for the common person. With the FA1’s Knowles BA driver and state-of-the-art 3D printing process, we continue that tradition of producing excellent-sounding great value products.

The shape of the FA1 was designed from the input of tens of thousands human ear shapes, to ensure maximum comfort and that the sound flows unimpeded to your ears.

Honed by thousands of ears

Thanks to advanced 3D printing technology and the skin-friendly resin material of the shell, a single FA1 ear unit weighs in at a mere 4.5g for unparalleled wearing comfort.

Light as a feather

Detachable cables for unleashed sound

Not only does the included MMCX cable enhance the durability of the FA1 by making it easy to replace, it also enhances the sound you get. The included 3.5mm-terminated cable is made of oxygen-free copper-plated silver wire for supreme clarity and a vast soundstage.

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
