Before getting into the review, I should state that Final has had a little bit of a re-brand, going from Final Audio Design to Final. The explanation from mark being: “The idea behind the name is that Final are the absolute pinnacle of headphone design. The Final destination for audiophiles, if you will. The head designer, who is now the CEO, seems to take his inspiration from super high-end Swiss watch designers and that’s very apparent in the top-of-the-line products they produce.”
With that out of the way let’s get to it and see if it really is the “Final” design/audio quality that the brand intends to deliver!
