Recently, Final Audio released their flagship TWS earphones, the ZE8000. This model comes with excellent features and audiophile-level sound quality, along with a unique design. Let’s take a closer look at what makes them interesting.
The design of the ZE8000 features a cylindrical stem with a textured surface similar to the ZE3000 model, making it easy to hold without slipping. The compact size of the earbuds allows for easy insertion into the ears.
The earbuds come with a specially designed silicone tip that can be easily replaced, as there are five sizes available.
ANC, calling, and more
They include Active Noise Cancelling, and you can choose from four different modes:
- Noise Cancelling: Reduces ambient noise and enhances the clarity of the sound.
- Wind Cut Mode: Cuts out wind and low-frequency sounds for normal listening.
- While Listening Mode: Allows external sounds to enter while maintaining normal music volume.
- Voice Through Mode: Allows external sounds to enter while reducing the volume of the music being listened to, allowing clear surrounding sound.
The earphones feature 4 beamforming microphones, ensuring clear and high-quality conversations without distortion. The microphones focus on capturing the voice while not completely eliminating the surrounding sounds.
The 8K Sound system works in conjunction with the f-Core driver, designed to provide detailed and comprehensive sound reproduction, especially in the mid and high frequencies.
The earphones come with the Final Connect app, which is compatible with both Android and iOS. It allows sound customization and firmware updates, and you can also enable the 8K Sound mode through the app.
The sound of the ZE8000 is often compared to analog sound and bears a resemblance to Final Audio’s flagship IEM model, the A8000. The sound signature is balanced, with a moderate amount of bass that is rich and enjoyable for audiophiles. The upper bass response is excellent, providing a good level of responsiveness.
The midrange has a slight warmth and delivers detailed instrument separation without being overly emphasized or colored. The vocals are natural and similar to other well-known brands such as Hifiman and Dita.
The high frequencies lean towards smoothness, capturing the fine details without harshness. The overall listening experience is relaxing, but if you focus on listening critically, you will find that these earphones provide an exceptionally high level of detail in each piece of music. They also offer a spacious soundstage. These earphones are a must-have for serious music enthusiasts.
