Final Audio Design FI-BA-SST In-Ear Headphones
I’ve lusted after Final Audio Design's aesthetic sense for as long as I’ve been aware of the company. They continually impresses me with their unparalleled devotion to elegance and minimalism. The FI-BA-SST is clearly no exception.
They both feature a single balanced armature driver housed in stainless steel, with the same 112 dB SPL, and 16 ohm impedance. They also both feature Final Audio Design’s Balancing Air Movement (BAM) mechanism. The FI-BA-SST has a shorter cable than the FI-BA-SS3 (1.2m, down from 1.4m) and employs beautiful high purity OFC silver-coated cables (rather than the original black elastic cable.) They also weigh a bit more (26g, up from 20g.) As with all Final Audio Design products, the FI-BA-SST is manufactured at their factory in Japan.
