final Audio: Heaven VIII Stainless

$1,289
Delivers natural sound teeming with realism that you could listen to forever through the metal powder injection molding method MIM.
Along with the special attribute of final audio design products - a vast sound stage - Heaven VIII has succeeded in the reproduction of the vivid yet lyrical bass tones radiating from musical instruments. Usually, increasing the range of bass tones results in a dull resonance across the full sound range. Here, owing to the employment of MIM (Metal Injection Molding), a special metal working process, a housing

that optimizes acoustics not possible through regular machining is achieved; coupled with a newly specified single driver unit, it has been possible to heighten bass reproduction while preserving clarity. With a never before experienced volume of sounds and sense of depth, you can experience an overwhelming sense
of realism. The back design is not merely for decoration either. Resonance dispersion has been factored into the design, making for a high-level balance between beauty and function.

* MIM (Metal Injection Molding)

Fine metal powder is mixed with a binder, and after molding this with a die as is done with resin, the form is sintered in a furnace at an exceedingly high temperature. Freedom of form and precision are high with this method, but it is difficult to finish the surface, and hence the process is not often used for parts whose external appearance is displayed.
BAM mechanism produces bass sounds and stereo spatial interpretations
With balanced armature driver units, iron is driven to produce sound, and as such, these drivers face a number of problems, amongst which are "proving tiring to listen to" , "having sound that is subtle and beautiful, but lacking in depth and being flat" and "lacking bass interval". At final, we decided to focus on developing technology for the reproduction of bass tones and three-dimensional space with the full-range reproduction of a theoretically unproblematic single driver unit, rather than taking things in a multiway direction.

We went back to the beginning and reviewed the performance of the balanced armature driver, focusing our attention on something we had previously overlooked airflow inside the housing. We developed BAM (Balancing Air Movement), a mechanism that optimizes airflow inside the housing through the creation of an aperture in the driver unit, which is usually sealed.

While achieving bass tones and deep, three-dimensional spatial representation, which proved difficult with single driver full-range reproduction, we achieved a BA type that at the same time made for natural listening the user doesn't tire of.
