In the FiiO EX1 portable dynamic earphones the diafragm is the heart of the sound production facility of earphones, determining the sound quality of earphones to a great extent. To produce better sound, sound engineers have always been looking for a lighter yet stiffer material to transduce sound with less distortion. FiiO has discovered that titanium, a material more often found in aerospace engineering, is very light, with high sound conduction speed, yet several times stiffer than steel. They have been able to design a full-range dynamic driver around this material with breakup frequency above the audible range, thus ensuring clear, even high frequency reproduction.
Highly researched duralumin/stainless steel housing
All components of the FiiO EX1 earphones housing are precision CNC milled, with the back made of anodized duralumin and the front stainless steel, the “beehive” of tuning ports on the front being precisely sized and positioned to deliver the desired sound tuning properties.
Nanotech titanium diaphragm driver
Delivering even power response across frequencies and a natural yet energetic sound, the titanium diaphragm can handle high power without distortion while preserving exemplary transient response, unlike traditional dynamic driver diaphragms.
Kevlar-strengthened high-purity multistrand OFC cable
The FiiO EX1 headphone cable consists of 42 strands of high–purity OFC copper intertwined with 250D Kevlar fibre strands, ensuring superior sonics as well as great strain resistance and longevity. The outer sheating is composed of medical-grade TPE for minimum microphonics and maximum biocompatibility (avoiding skin allergies).
Non-resonating metal body
Metal body is designed to suppress resonances to the maximum extent, preserving the superior transient response of the nanotech titanium diaphragms for lifelike reproduction of live sound.
Ergonomic offset nozzle design
With small roundeed on-ear driver housings and shallow in-ear nozzles, ensuring long-term wearing comfort.
Complete selection of eartips for optimum fit and sonics
Correct selection of eartips is crucial for comfort and sound quality. The FiiO EX1 comes with several sets of eartips of different sizes and designs to let you find the best fit, both physically and sonically.
