But first, let’s look at Final Audio and the E5000 IEM.
About Final Audio
Final Audio was launched in 1974 by Kanemori Takai, an engineer known to be as visionary as picky sometimes. The brand began with turntable cartridges and steadily expanded to pre-amps, power amps and speakers. In 2007, an new company “S’Next” was launched to produce OEM and ODM products with Molex, with big success.
Now, Final Audio is also known for its wide range of headphones and earphones : Sonorous, Piano Forte, Adagio and of course Heaven. If you were in the audio game the past few years, you must have heard these names or at least saw news talking about the price of the Sonorous X.

The Final E5000 is really close to the E4000, sonically speaking. Still, there is a clear upgrade if you listen to them alternatively. The E5000 is more precise and more refined than its younger brother. This is especially palpable on classical tracks, on Part I from Prequel’s latest album, you can distinguish the violin from the viola at lower volume. I couldn’t do it on the E4000.
Another good point of the E5000 are the fast transients. Usually dynamic earphones are slower than balanced armature earphones due to the nature of the driver, fortunately that’s not the case here. It’s still a flat IEM but not a dull one by no means. You don’t get the resolution of top tier IEM but on everyday commute, it’s the perfect mellow sound that drives you far and away.
This IEM is clearly more polyvalent than the E4000, electro still doesn’t get extra harsh, but the boost in resolution makes the E5000 more potent to the task. Soothing sound with precise transients isn’t an easy task and that makes this IEM a good all-rounder, a fast one moreover.
You can read the full review of the Final Audio E5000 here:
The lucky winner will get his unit shipped directly by Final Audio. They will cover the shipping fee but neither Final Audio or Headfonia will cover any other expenses such as VAT, import fees, tax, etc. This is all the winner’s responsibility so if you’re not up for that, it’s best not to enter. Final Audio also won’t lower the unit’s value for shipping.
