The annual High-End Show in Munich has been abuzz with headphone announcements, with Focal announcing two new headphones, while Final, a renowned Japanese headphone brand, is now adding to the excitement with its latest unveiling: the Final D7000 flagship planar-magnetic headphones. 

Positioned as the pinnacle of the company's offerings, the Final D7000 boasts impressive features and innovations aimed at audiophiles seeking uncompromising sound quality. At the heart of the D7000 headphones lies Final's proprietary planar magnetic driver technology, which has been refined and improved with the introduction of the Advanced Air Film Damping System (AFDS).

This improvement allows for greater efficiency in reproducing extended bass frequencies, addressing a common limitation in conventional planar magnetic headphones where the diaphragm could distort at high playback volumes. According to the company, with the AFDS in place, the D7000 can achieve a level of bass extension and power previously unseen in this category.

Constructed from a lightweight yet durable machined aluminum-magnesium alloy, the housing of the D7000 is engineered to maximize the performance of the AFDS and advanced driver technology. This precision machining should not only ensure a sleek and sophisticated design but also contribute to the headphones' overall sound quality.

One of the main features of the Final D7000 is its unique sound signature, crafted to strike a balance between the delicate high frequencies inherent in planar magnetic technology and the robust low frequencies associated with dynamic drivers. This results in a rich and smooth sound profile that captivates listeners with its clarity and depth, the company claims

To further enhance the listening experience, Final has developed open-type earpads using Washi material, a traditional Japanese paper known for its durability, air permeability, and antibacterial properties. These earpads not only provide exceptional comfort but also contribute to the headphones' natural openness and bass capability, complementing the AFDS technology.

In addition, Final has introduced a pinna-aligned diffuser for the D7000, aimed at providing sonic consistency across various ear shapes. Through extensive simulations and hearing experiments, Final has optimized the diffuser shape to deliver an optimal listening experience for all users, regardless of their ear anatomy.
