Product Description


Final Audio was established in 1974 in Japan by the late Kanemori Takai. The first real product it released was a cartridge designed by Yoshihisa Mori, who was renowned for his cartridge designs. And now, after years of audiophile grade product development, Final Audio is finally available for high end audio consumers outside of the US. The flagship model SONOROUS X employs a driver unit integrated with the front plate, which results in resonance being suppressed and clear sound quality. Here, monitor- like sound combined with a vast sound stage is generated owing to the same titanium diaphragm employed with SONOROUS X. Final Audio has achieved sound quality that faithfully reproduces the source music and is pleasant to listen to.

Ear pads with sound absorption section that contribute to clear sound quality
The ear pads play an important part in sound quality. When there is a space between the ear pad and the ear, low frequency acoustic pressure changes greatly, and this greatly influences sound quality. So as to achieve a superior fit where it is hard to create a space, we’ve employed synthetic leather, which has an equal amount of flexibility both horizontally and vertically, and have chosen a sponge with just the right amount of flexibility. Establishing apertures on the inside and the outside of the ear pads makes for clear sound quality with sealed headphones.

BAM mechanism that realizes bass and deep three-dimensional space reproduction
BAM is the approach of optimizing the balance of pressure at the front and rear of the diaphragm. SONOROUS III has been tuned to an extremely accurate level based on new knowledge expertise gained from the development of SONOROUS VIII and SONOROUS X.

Rigid ABS housing with a rough coating
To achieve a high level of precision with the rigid ABS housing, simulations were carried out until the appropriate level of fluidity with respect to the molding material was achieved. A textured f inish that is also used with high-grade camera lenses is applied, and unnecessary vibrations are suppressed.

Integrated front plate and titanium diaphragm driver unit
With SONOROUS X, the f lagship model of the SONOROUS series, we integrated the driver unit with the front plate, and this suppresses resonance as well as realizing clear sound quality. The housing employs hard resin comprised of hard polycarbonate strengthened with 30% glass added to it. Resonance is suppressed and clear sound quality is achieved. Titanium has been employed for the diaphragm. This plays a role in enhancing resolution and the generation of high frequency harmonic overtones.

Detachable cable with locking function
A metal plated monaural plug with a diameter of 3.5 mm is employed for the connector on the headphones. By employing a connector with a long track record, trouble resulting from poor connection through changes over time is avoided. This is a cable with a locking mechanism that rotates 90゜.
