The amazing fiio f9 pro!If you are looking for some IEM's that are a bargain and great sounding. The fiio f9 pro are fantastic and beautifully crafted. I'm not going to make this sound like if I'm describing food like some people. I'm going to make it simple for those who don't understand the audio lingo. If you are accustom to beats, skull candy ect. These don't sound like those, those types have a heavy bass sound and the vocals and instruments take a back seat. Most of if not all audiophiles like a flat sounding IEM (in ear monitor) meaning the sub bass mid and high frequency are all equal, none overpowers the other. These fiio pro are almost that, with the exception, to my ears they have a slight boost in the bass and highs. Just slight, they sound fantastic. I'v heard and read that they have an elevated highs not piercing but I guess too my ears they do not have that much. They sound clean almost perfect. They also have soundstage (soundstage is when you hear the music wider, not just in your head but around, more like listeningin your car or at home) but not as large. Vocals are great and instruments are lively. Nothing over powers the other. The separation of the instruments and vocals are well separated where they don't seem as they are coming from the same point. You can tell that they are coming from different points.Plain and simple fantastic iem sound and build. They also have a great fit, pound for pound great IEM.4I love it love it love it.hahaha I love it. I have Fiio A3, A5 all of their DAC Players and Fiio made best for its price and this one did not disappoint me. this sound quality at this price? I am buying another hahahaha I am soooo happy that I made this purchase. I am not auidophile but I don't use chip eqipments. and I love this!!!!built quality is superb!! three pairs of memory foam with different hardness. I am using softest one and it sealed the entire world.5Amazing sound quality and comfort!The short answer:These are amazing earbuds. Likely the best quality sound you can experience for the price range of under $200. If you re looking for amazing value and comfort, buy these and you will not be disappointed.The long review:A bit about me:I would consider myself a novice audiophile; I m a university and conservatory trained classical guitarist, and I played in rock and metal bands in my youth. I enjoy music of all genres though limited amounts of country, reggae, or EDM.What I was looking for:I wanted everyday in ear headphones that were comfortable and secure to use on the go, at home when I can t use my stereo, and secure enough that I could dance with them in. I wanted the highest quality sound experience I could get without going crazy on price. I considered completely wireless earbuds, but from the reviews I read it seemed that none were truly audiophile quality and that they all had connection issues. I believe that technology is still about a year or so away from maturity.What I use them with:I use an iPhone 8 with the Apple supplied dongle adapter, and MacBook Pro laptop at home. I m interested in extremely high sound quality with practical sources.F9 to F9 Pro:I bought the standard F9 model about 2 months ago after spending over 40 hours watching YouTube reviews of in ear headphones, and reading Head-Fi forum reviews. I was very impressed with the F9 model, so I knew I wanted to see what FiiO had to offer for their flagship F9 Pro.Worth the upgrade?I am happy to say that the extra $40 for the Pro model is well worth it! They don t have the treble peak that the F9 model had which caused some listening fatigue and slight sibilance (harsh S sound). Bringing the 7k peak down with an EQ would fix that issue, but its not a very convenient solution. Enough about the F9, the rest of this will cover the Pro.The sound:The sound signature is pretty neutral, which I like as I like to hear what the artist intended. The mids and highs are very well detailed, clear and smooth, and the lows are punchy and full. The lows do not bleed into the mids,The separation between instruments is really amazing. On tracks with lots of bass, the bass is present and powerful.The imaging (placement of left to right) and sound stage (near to far) is really great on these. My girlfriend tried them and said it was like surround sound.The bad:The MMCX connection is very tight which makes it difficult to put the wires in. I recommend finding a very strong cushion to press against when putting these in. And if you have to take them out, running a paper clip or your fingernail (if you have strong nails) around the connection point can help to separate them pretty easily.Also, since I use an iPhone, it sucks that the volume buttons don t work, and though Fiio sells a lightning chord, it s too long to go with the provided mmcx chords. Maybe someone else can comment on a great combo to get around the annoying lightning dongle issue.5In an overwhelming sea of earbud options, THESE are the right choice!I have very eclectic taste when it comes to music. I can jump from AC/DC to Mozart to Imagine Dragons to Hillsong, etc in one setting. I also have EXTREMELY high expectations when it comes to the quality of sound, whether using regular speakers or headphones/earbuds. I want the best. I want to feel I am "in the room" or the "concert hall/stadium". I want perfect sound-mix balance, including strong, but not distorting bass tones. I want to "feel" the music, not matter what genre I'm listening to.Sadly, I've had a high-end pair of Sony's for about 6 years that just died. The sound was unmatched, short of spending hundreds of dollars. Shopping and sorting through SO many earbud options with tons of feedback write-ups was mentally exhausting, especially since you can't "test drive" the options to judge sound for yourself. Everyone has different tastes, and if they've never experienced true high-end quality, then they don't know what they don't know, and they will give 5 stars to something that is crap to the rest of us. I debated between this pair and a high-priced pair of Shure's because, again, I want only the best quality sound. However, my wife would have KILLED me, had I paid $700+ for the high-end Shure's. So, I chose to not get smothered by a pillow in my sleep, and I'm glad I took a chance with this set, which was a big risk in my mind because I have never heard of the FiiO brand...ever.From the 1st note, I could NOT be more happy with these! Connecting everything and plugging in, I had a cynical attitude with pretty low expectations because I have been disappointed SO many times in the past. However, after choosing a song on Spotify that would give me the best idea of this set offered, within the 3 seconds of play through, I knew I had hit the jackpot! I had actually gotten a pair that meets my high expectations! In fact, I may go ahead and order a second pair to store away just in case I ever accidentally damage these or they die in the future. One thing that drives me crazy about electronics is they get something perfect, and then before long, they have to mess with it by changing things to come out with a new model/design, often times, lowering the quality vs. improving.The build is solid, and....it turns out, I like the extras more than I thought I would. I appreciate the quality packaging, as well as both a soft AND hard carrying cases that come with. So, if you're struggling to make a choice because you've been disappointed in the past, look no further. You will NOT be disappointed by this pair! Worth every penny!5Amazing Open Back Headphone Soundstage and Sound Signature with IEM Bass.These IEMs sound absolutely amazing...I'm serious they exceed my open back Phillips SHP9500S by a whole lot. The bass is fantastic and the soundstage is very open and airy on par with my Phillips SHP9500S, the only negative with the sound of these is that the 8khz peak can be overpowering at times but that can obviously be EQ'd down to give you a perfect sound and/or use different eartips that tone it down. They can also be easily driven by my Note 8. With the FiiO Q1 Mark II and balanced cable the clarity and sound stands out even further allowing deeper bass and detail across all spectrums. The build quality of these are stunning and the eartips are diverse and abundant. I highly recommend using the foam eartips because they tone down the highs and level out the sound a little bit better than the other eartips but obviously that's just my personal preference. These completely blew my mind and completely surpassed my expectations I highly recommend them you will not be disappointed in these at all.5Great Sound...Terrible Build QualityI don't think I have anything new to add about everything that's been said so far. The dynamic capability of this earphone is really awesome for the low price point. The cables that come in the package are OK. The ear tip selection is very good. The cases are cool. The assembly of this headphone leaves MUCH to be desired.The apparent weakness of this earphone is Body Heat. Yes, that's right. Body Heat. Your aluminum shell can't do anything to protect you from yourself! Ok, so, I've had mine for just UNDER a year at this point and THREE separate times, an earpiece has just fallen apart when being removed from my ear.Before you ask, yes, yes, I am a very experienced headphone user and I know how to properly remove them from my ears. Alas, three times, they came apart. Twice while I was working overnight at a grocery store (not hard work, just stocking a produce table) and once, most recently, while I was sleeping (I now have a job that takes me to work at 3:30am and I use my headphones to wake with my alarm so I don't wake the wife).The first time was pretty good service. I was able to send them to the US office and they sent back, I think, a replacement set. Cool. Second time was not so great. They directed me to send them to China and wait for them to come back (this was after the SquareTrade program I bought for them decided this was damage that was NOT covered). Not so pleased at that point. Instead of spending about $18 on shipping to China and avoiding the wait, I picked up some Super Glue for a couple of bucks and glued the pieces back myself. The third instance just happened this morning, when I woke up, and I'm not even going to bother contacting Fiio on it.This is too bad. They're very nice sounding headphones, but their build is awful. I was thinking about moving up to the FH5 but now I'm not so sure. Be cautioned...when you buy these headphones, get a good super glue, too.2My new go to for everything!I have been in search of a pair of IEMs ever since I left my Shure SE215s in my trousers and then proceeded to put them in washer. This was 3 months ago. The Shures were my go to earphones for anything outside the house, whether it was gym, flights, or just a walk in the park. For my home use, I prefer headphones and in the past few years, I ve owned, bought and sold several including Sennheiser HD650, Grado SR325, AKG K702, Focal Listen wireless and Sennheiser Momentum to name a few. Shure, simply because of its easiness to carry and noise isolation, was my go to travel set. I didn t expect the Shures to perform as well as the Sennheiser or the other over ear models, but it was surprisingly good and met my requirements. So when it finally got damaged after 7 years of use in every possible scenario, I started looking for something that would be at least as good as those. I had a set of criteria that these earphones needed to meet.Budget of $100-200. I simply didn t expect IEMs to be as good as full sized headphones (for price), so wasn t sure if I should be spending over $200 on them.Portable. No funny connectors, easy to carry and easy to drive using cell phones, laptops, tablets etc.Good fit and isolation. I am going to be using these in gym so they better not pop out and on flights so they need to isolate external noise well.Obviously, with a bit of research, my concerns were mitigated and I was only looking at earphones that met these criteria. So why did I pick Fiio F9 pro?I have used Fiio products before, and one of my first portable amps was a Fiio. I know that they make good products at very competitive price. I actually didn t know that they made IEMs, but once I found out, I knew that it was going to be some of the best in that price range.Second, the reviews here on amazon, and elsewhere were quite positive. Third, by spending $40 more on these than the Shure SE215, I was hoping that these would be somewhat of an upgrade (which in terms of specs it is - triple driver, metal body etc.). So how is it?I can tell you that I am very very proud of myself for deciding to go with these :) (I know I know..). What I mean is, it was absolutely the right decision! It s been 3 days since I ve had them and I could not be any more happier.In terms of build quality, they are very well made, but you expect that when you pay more than $100 for a pair of earphones/headphones. The isolation is on point, similar to the Shures. That was one of the reasons that I chose to go with this shape. They provide really good isolation and stay in ear really well.Soundwise, they are better than the Shure SE215s in every way, top to bottom. There is more detail, the sound is cleaner, the bass is deeper and tighter and treble is well pronounced. I honestly wasn t expecting these to be this good. This outperforms majority of the headphones I have used.**You have to remember that you are entering a territory of diminishing returns once you spend over $100 for earphones. Even the Shures that cost 5 times as much as 215s are probably 10% better performance wise.**Let us look at the sound a bit in-depth.Detail: Amazing. I wouldn t say I m hearing anything new but the sound is so balanced top to bottom. The very soft intros and outros that you would just ignore can be heard clearly. I ve been listening to Game of Thrones soundtrack (highly recommended), and I m paying attention to every little detail. Up there with the best I ve heard. 9/10Bass: Absolutely kills it. Probably the most balanced and deep bass I ve heard in any headphone or IEM. I guess having a dedicated driver makes a big difference. The bass is tight, super responsive and goes deep. It is not overpowering at any time and really adjusts very well with volume (best I ve seen). Sometimes, the problem I d have with my Shure SE215s was that bass could becoming fatiguing at low volumes. I d be listening late at night or in a quiet place like library and had to turn it really down for bass to not become overpowering. None of that here. The F9 pro really adjusts very well with volume and the bass is always there in the same proportion I feel. It s tighter and deeper than Shure s bass, and there s absolutely no bloating. That s what makes it not overpowering in my opinion. 10/10Mids: I find it very satisfying. It s not forward like Grados, probably a bit less brilliant compared to the awesome bass and treble these IEMs have. But it s not bad by any means. It does the job perfectly well, perhaps doesn t excel as much as the bass or treble do. 8/10Treble: Amazing again. Bass is my favorite feature on these but treble is a close second. I think it will only get better as the earphones burn in. Nonetheless, it leaves nothing to be desired to my ears. It s there, plenty of it, but doesn t get sibilant. 9/10Overall, I think this is now my favorite pair. The sennheiser HD650s, especially when paired with tube amp, are warmer but lack bass compared to the Fiio. The grados have great mids, but are too trebly. When you compare the overall convenience of having a portable pair that can do anything and can be powered using mobile devices, it's just an unbeatable combination.I absolutely recommend this to anybody looking into IEMs. You will not be disappointed.5The most life-like 'phones I've ever heard.I am an audiophile who has had six-figure sound systems at my disposal as a sales rep for a very high-end audio chain. I bought these F9 PROs and Beyerdynamic DT-1990 at the same time seeking headphones that will get me by until I get out of my apartment and into a house where I can use my speakers at "life-like levels". I've been to many dozens of concerts and I am generally front row or very close, so I need equipment that not play with finesse, but also a higher dB level without distortion.The plan was to use the DT-1990s as my home listening 'phones and use the F9s as my portables. Well, that plan didn't last. They both arrived today and after listening to both, the 1990s are going back and these F9 PROs are my do it all 'phones. These are the only headphones I've EVER listened to that compete with very high-end speakers! I am utterly shocked. Detail AND Fortissimo aplomb. I would not have expected the Beyerdynamics to sound this good, even at four times the price. I made the choice not on price, but simply on the fact that these are faaaar better, IMO.The sound of these lean maybe a tad bright for some people, but I find many people prefer comfort over "musical truth". If you listen to live music from a very short distance, these will give you the detail and dynamics you've come to expect from live performances. As I'm writing this, I'm going through my live recordings and I'm just blown away. The sound is very even from the deep bass all the way through the treble and very dynamic while maintaining the even timbre.Ok, I've gushed enough. Buy these, without question.Edit 10/18: These do still sound great. but there is a bit of a midrange spike that does make some music a little fatiguing. These are still my favorite IEMs, though. Also, a few weeks ago the left side body came apart. I was able to glue them back together, but it was a bit messy, lol.5Pleasently surprised!!!!!!!!!!!Just to clear things up ive been a DJ,Gamer,Techie and all around music lover for over 25 years. I ve owned plenty of dj headphones, monitors and IEMs, I own beats studios wireless, Sony WI1000X and W1000XM2s, Shure Se210, Se110, UE triple Fis, 1more triple drivers, ATH-m50X and my most used Fidelios l2, among others.......In my search for a go to IEM do to their portability and as a travel backup to my bluetooth ones ive bought many and tried to not splurge but eventually you just have to resign to the fact that without spending you will never find the perfect one. To this date my favorite sounding iems are the UE triple FI but their deign is awkward, and im on my second set, 1st set broke while i was trying to change cables, poor design from them and a known issue, they will be sent for a reshell soon, Anyways..these IEMs in my opinion are the best balance of price and sound. From my experience and listening to Ethymoticas,Shures,1mores, and other high end ones, what you pay for hwat you get on this is the best bang for you buck...They sound as full and clear ad the UE triple fi but with a bit more punch to them, the vocals ight be slightly clearer on the UE but considering those cost almost 100 more when i got em, its a fair compromise......how i see it, for the everyday joe who appreciates a good set of cans, these will out do anything under 140 in most cases...if ur on the fence at 90 to 100, stretch a bit more and get these...its well worth the upgrade.5Initial impression that these are as good or better than my Ultimate Ears UE Pro FI ...Just opened and attached to phone using Sirius App....Initial impression that these are as good or better than my Ultimate Ears UE Pro Triple FI 10s which lasted for 10 years until the right driver just died....Can't believe these will last as long, but great balanced sound and great fit using Comply foam tips supplied...Fit was always issue with UE because of multiple drivers...These FiiOs fit like glove...will report later11/26 Update :...the cord is starting to short out and there appears to be no customer support and these are only five months old....Sent company an e-mail and they ignored it...so despite the sound quality, the company service is bad!! rating is downgraded!1

Ok, so, I've had mine for just UNDER a year at this point and THREE separate times, an earpiece has just fallen apart when being removed from my ear.Before you ask, yes, yes, I am a very experienced headphone user and I know how to properly remove them from my ears. Alas, three times, they came apart. Twice while I was working overnight at a grocery store (not hard work, just stocking a produce table) and once, most recently, while I was sleeping (I now have a job that takes me to work at 3:30am and I use my headphones to wake with my alarm so I don't wake the wife).The first time was pretty good service. I was able to send them to the US office and they sent back, I think, a replacement set. Cool. Second time was not so great. They directed me to send them to China and wait for them to come back (this was after the SquareTrade program I bought for them decided this was damage that was NOT covered). Not so pleased at that point. Instead of spending about $18 on shipping to China and avoiding the wait, I picked up some Super Glue for a couple of bucks and glued the pieces back myself. The third instance just happened this morning, when I woke up, and I'm not even going to bother contacting Fiio on it.This is too bad. They're very nice sounding headphones, but their build is awful. I was thinking about moving up to the FH5 but now I'm not so sure. Be cautioned...when you buy these headphones, get a good super glue, too.2My new go to for everything!I have been in search of a pair of IEMs ever since I left my Shure SE215s in my trousers and then proceeded to put them in washer. This was 3 months ago. The Shures were my go to earphones for anything outside the house, whether it was gym, flights, or just a walk in the park. For my home use, I prefer headphones and in the past few years, I ve owned, bought and sold several including Sennheiser HD650, Grado SR325, AKG K702, Focal Listen wireless and Sennheiser Momentum to name a few. Shure, simply because of its easiness to carry and noise isolation, was my go to travel set. I didn t expect the Shures to perform as well as the Sennheiser or the other over ear models, but it was surprisingly good and met my requirements. So when it finally got damaged after 7 years of use in every possible scenario, I started looking for something that would be at least as good as those. I had a set of criteria that these earphones needed to meet.Budget of $100-200. I simply didn t expect IEMs to be as good as full sized headphones (for price), so wasn t sure if I should be spending over $200 on them.Portable. No funny connectors, easy to carry and easy to drive using cell phones, laptops, tablets etc.Good fit and isolation. I am going to be using these in gym so they better not pop out and on flights so they need to isolate external noise well.Obviously, with a bit of research, my concerns were mitigated and I was only looking at earphones that met these criteria. So why did I pick Fiio F9 pro?I have used Fiio products before, and one of my first portable amps was a Fiio. I know that they make good products at very competitive price. I actually didn t know that they made IEMs, but once I found out, I knew that it was going to be some of the best in that price range.Second, the reviews here on amazon, and elsewhere were quite positive. Third, by spending $40 more on these than the Shure SE215, I was hoping that these would be somewhat of an upgrade (which in terms of specs it is - triple driver, metal body etc.). So how is it?I can tell you that I am very very proud of myself for deciding to go with these :) (I know I know..). What I mean is, it was absolutely the right decision! It s been 3 days since I ve had them and I could not be any more happier.In terms of build quality, they are very well made, but you expect that when you pay more than $100 for a pair of earphones/headphones. The isolation is on point, similar to the Shures. That was one of the reasons that I chose to go with this shape. They provide really good isolation and stay in ear really well.Soundwise, they are better than the Shure SE215s in every way, top to bottom. There is more detail, the sound is cleaner, the bass is deeper and tighter and treble is well pronounced. I honestly wasn t expecting these to be this good. This outperforms majority of the headphones I have used.**You have to remember that you are entering a territory of diminishing returns once you spend over $100 for earphones. Even the Shures that cost 5 times as much as 215s are probably 10% better performance wise.**Let us look at the sound a bit in-depth.Detail: Amazing. I wouldn t say I m hearing anything new but the sound is so balanced top to bottom. The very soft intros and outros that you would just ignore can be heard clearly. I ve been listening to Game of Thrones soundtrack (highly recommended), and I m paying attention to every little detail. Up there with the best I ve heard. 9/10Bass: Absolutely kills it. Probably the most balanced and deep bass I ve heard in any headphone or IEM. I guess having a dedicated driver makes a big difference. The bass is tight, super responsive and goes deep. It is not overpowering at any time and really adjusts very well with volume (best I ve seen). Sometimes, the problem I d have with my Shure SE215s was that bass could becoming fatiguing at low volumes. I d be listening late at night or in a quiet place like library and had to turn it really down for bass to not become overpowering. None of that here. The F9 pro really adjusts very well with volume and the bass is always there in the same proportion I feel. It s tighter and deeper than Shure s bass, and there s absolutely no bloating. That s what makes it not overpowering in my opinion. 10/10Mids: I find it very satisfying. It s not forward like Grados, probably a bit less brilliant compared to the awesome bass and treble these IEMs have. But it s not bad by any means. It does the job perfectly well, perhaps doesn t excel as much as the bass or treble do. 8/10Treble: Amazing again. Bass is my favorite feature on these but treble is a close second. I think it will only get better as the earphones burn in. Nonetheless, it leaves nothing to be desired to my ears. It s there, plenty of it, but doesn t get sibilant. 9/10Overall, I think this is now my favorite pair. The sennheiser HD650s, especially when paired with tube amp, are warmer but lack bass compared to the Fiio. The grados have great mids, but are too trebly. When you compare the overall convenience of having a portable pair that can do anything and can be powered using mobile devices, it's just an unbeatable combination.I absolutely recommend this to anybody looking into IEMs. You will not be disappointed.5The most life-like 'phones I've ever heard.I am an audiophile who has had six-figure sound systems at my disposal as a sales rep for a very high-end audio chain. I bought these F9 PROs and Beyerdynamic DT-1990 at the same time seeking headphones that will get me by until I get out of my apartment and into a house where I can use my speakers at "life-like levels". I've been to many dozens of concerts and I am generally front row or very close, so I need equipment that not play with finesse, but also a higher dB level without distortion.The plan was to use the DT-1990s as my home listening 'phones and use the F9s as my portables. Well, that plan didn't last. They both arrived today and after listening to both, the 1990s are going back and these F9 PROs are my do it all 'phones. These are the only headphones I've EVER listened to that compete with very high-end speakers! I am utterly shocked. Detail AND Fortissimo aplomb. I would not have expected the Beyerdynamics to sound this good, even at four times the price. I made the choice not on price, but simply on the fact that these are faaaar better, IMO.The sound of these lean maybe a tad bright for some people, but I find many people prefer comfort over "musical truth". If you listen to live music from a very short distance, these will give you the detail and dynamics you've come to expect from live performances. As I'm writing this, I'm going through my live recordings and I'm just blown away. The sound is very even from the deep bass all the way through the treble and very dynamic while maintaining the even timbre.Ok, I've gushed enough. Buy these, without question.Edit 10/18: These do still sound great. but there is a bit of a midrange spike that does make some music a little fatiguing. These are still my favorite IEMs, though. Also, a few weeks ago the left side body came apart. I was able to glue them back together, but it was a bit messy, lol.5Pleasently surprised!!!!!!!!!!!Just to clear things up ive been a DJ,Gamer,Techie and all around music lover for over 25 years. I ve owned plenty of dj headphones, monitors and IEMs, I own beats studios wireless, Sony WI1000X and W1000XM2s, Shure Se210, Se110, UE triple Fis, 1more triple drivers, ATH-m50X and my most used Fidelios l2, among others.......In my search for a go to IEM do to their portability and as a travel backup to my bluetooth ones ive bought many and tried to not splurge but eventually you just have to resign to the fact that without spending you will never find the perfect one. To this date my favorite sounding iems are the UE triple FI but their deign is awkward, and im on my second set, 1st set broke while i was trying to change cables, poor design from them and a known issue, they will be sent for a reshell soon, Anyways..these IEMs in my opinion are the best balance of price and sound. From my experience and listening to Ethymoticas,Shures,1mores, and other high end ones, what you pay for hwat you get on this is the best bang for you buck...They sound as full and clear ad the UE triple fi but with a bit more punch to them, the vocals ight be slightly clearer on the UE but considering those cost almost 100 more when i got em, its a fair compromise......how i see it, for the everyday joe who appreciates a good set of cans, these will out do anything under 140 in most cases...if ur on the fence at 90 to 100, stretch a bit more and get these...its well worth the upgrade.5Initial impression that these are as good or better than my Ultimate Ears UE Pro FI ...Just opened and attached to phone using Sirius App....Initial impression that these are as good or better than my Ultimate Ears UE Pro Triple FI 10s which lasted for 10 years until the right driver just died....Can't believe these will last as long, but great balanced sound and great fit using Comply foam tips supplied...Fit was always issue with UE because of multiple drivers...These FiiOs fit like glove...will report later11/26 Update :...the cord is starting to short out and there appears to be no customer support and these are only five months old....Sent company an e-mail and they ignored it...so despite the sound quality, the company service is bad!! rating is downgraded!1
