Japan’s Final Audio has released the UX3000 headphones, which should do away with the drawbacks of ANC.

The B-series of finals is for connoisseurs and for those who want a nice looking set of in-ears.

Are you looking for something special, do you want to be surprised by what ear monitors can do, go to the dealer and try this jewelry for the ear!
Where at Level 1 we still heard significant differences between the headphones, this is mainly about nuance and taste. The measurements also show that. It will be about the match between the other devices in your system, your musical preference, the desired use. In that sense, good quality headphones are no different than speakers.
