Final enters the arena of planar-magnetic headphones with the D8000 that is able to create a sound that combines the delicate high-frequency range of planar magnetic drivers, and the low-frequency range with open feeling and impact of dynamic headphones. Newly developed damping systems make sure the D8000 outperform any planar-magnetic or dynamic headphone, redefining the sound and possibilities as only Final can.
With the development of the new AFDS (Air Film Damping System), we have achieved sound quality that has both the sensitive high ranges of planar magnetic models and the volume and open feel bass tones of dynamic models. This is a product that will have you making new discoveries from music you're used to listening to, and will have you wanting to listen to your favourite music over and over, reaffirming the pleasure that audio products bring.
Reinventing headphone listening.
Listening to the D8000 opens up new discoveries from listening to your music that will make you want to listen to your library over and over again. Final D8000 is a headphone listen you can actually feel deeper with new realms of music opening up in front of you.
A breakthrough in planar magnetic design with the Final D8000 is the thin air film also used in condenser microphones mixed with a perforated mesh metal. The result is the process called the Air Film Dampening System. This technology in combination with the spiral coil creates a unique sound signature that results in heightened bass response.
Final D8000 combines the characteristics of planar-magnetic systems and dynamic systems. D8000 is able to convey delicate sounds at high frequencies like typical planar-magnetic types and produces an open-feeling with rich sound at low frequencies, typical for dynamic systems.
Air Film Dampening System
AFDS solved the problem of the diaphragm contacting the magnet, so it was possible to lower the frequency of bass that the driver unit can play. Along with breathable earpads, it made it possible to reproduce bass that combines volume sense and openness, which could before only be expressed in high-end dynamic headphone designs.
The cutting enclosure made of aluminium magnesium alloy has been cut with high precision. In order to establish the Air Film Dampening System extremely high accuracy is required compared with traditional drivers. By applying a leather paint finish that is used for high-end cameras, Final are also taking measures against unwanted vibrations.
Newly developed cables for D8000 include a cable with 3.5mm mini plug termination with 1.5m length for portable use and a 6.35mm standard plug termination for home listening. Optional silver connector cables for various connectors including balanced type are scheduled separately.
In order to be able to use the D8000 for a long time after purchase, Final have designed it so that almost all parts can be disassembled with screws. This enables repair and future upgrades making the D8000 a timeless headphone ready for action for many years.
