First of all I would like to thank Echobox for reaching out to me and sending the Finder X1 for review. I had never heard about the brand before, but was made aware about their Indiegogo campaign through a quick Google search.
The earphones are available through Echobox’s website for $199, which translates to around £140. The problem for people outside the US, including myself is the fact that you’ll probably have to pay a hefty customs and import fee on top of the price tag, which might mean the earphones will end up costing you over £180, rather than £140.
Just for the sake of simplicity I’ll be reviewing them at the £140 price tag, but do bear in mind their availability and the limitations of getting them in your country.
Here’s my video review of the Finder X1:
