FINAL A8000 £1999 REVIEW
April 17, 2020 § Leave a comment
“The tuning and speed/texture reminds me of STAX headphones and the er4 series but the bass isn’t as compromised on the A8000. The cleanliness in the tuning and emotions are well balanced.
As usual, we are letting the earphones to run in and impressions will be made pairing the A8000 with a handful of sources. Final has put some note on their website for the burn-in process and they stated a long time (150-200 hours) is required before the aging effects on this product level off.
I gave the A8000 15 hours a day for roughly 2 weeks with the cables swapped from my burnt-in E5000. From memory, the bass becomes less shy, and the initial treble sparkle is tamed.”
