Distance perceptions among various music genres are different. Classical and jazz recordings are thought to be performed with emphasis on aspects of spaciousness, such as sense of distance, broadness and reverberation. On the other hand, rock, pops and many of the recent animation soundtrack recordings, spaciousness is not as highly emphasized. There is thought to be greater emphasis on clarity, which brings the various instruments and vocals to the front.
Dynamic range means changes in loudness over time. If the dynamic range is wide, naturally it is possible to achieve a more dynamic expression of music. But, there are some types of music for which narrower dynamic range recordings are preferable to allow each of the instruments and vocals to be expressed.
These preconditions are very important, particularly for earphone and headphone listening, and it has become apparent that the implementation of appropriate target curves and driver design result in deeper enjoyment of music. In comparison to the E series, the B series is positioned more as a model to listen to a specific type of music, and you might become so enthralled with it that you can’t do without it. This attraction is what Final aims for.
Sound design of B2 takes both spatial impression and dynamic range into consideration. Vocals are so close that the respiration can be felt, reproduces the nuance and inflection of the delicate sound of each musical instrument. B2 is a model particularly well suited to rich spatial music like classical music recordings that take adequate advantage of the reflections and reverberation of a concert hall as well as live recordings to reproduce the feeling of "being there". In comparison to the E series, the B series is positioned more as a model to listen to a specific type of music, and you might become so enthralled with it that you can’t do without it. This attraction is typical of the products Final produces.
Balanced Armature Driver and MMCX Design
Final B2 employs 1 Balanced Armature (BA) driver and adopts MMCX connectors withoxygen-free copper (OFC) cable. The cable can be replaced when damaged. A natural and velvety sound with little stress across the entire frequency range is achieved.
Metal Injection Molding (MIM) stainless steel housing
MIM is a process by which powdered metal is mixed with a binder to form a resin in the desired shape and applying high-temperature sintering to achieve the desired form. There is a high degree of freedom in molding the resin into the same shape as the cast, making it possible to achieve a complex internal design even with metal. In order to achieve long-Life, repairable construction, the front and rear piece of the earphone is separable. This makes B2 easy to repair for long term usage.
The Feeling of a Customized Fit
Superior earphone fit or not is determined by the feeling of pressure. There are products on the market with an ergonomically praised curved surface. But because the holding positions place pressure on the ear, fatigue accumulates over time. Final designed B2 to achieve fit with little pressure. Much the same as a tripod, a stable fit can be secured with 3 holding positions. This involves 2 main holding positions and 1 assisting holding position for the earphone to not slip out. In the diagram below, a total of 3 holding positions are shown. The green section is the eartip. It secures an earphone in a comfortable stress-free way. The blue section gently fits the tragus and prevent the earphone to slip. The pink section at the concha is the third supporting point. By clearly identifying the points of contact, more people’s ears can conform to a fit with no sense of pressure. The interchangeable silicone ear tips also yields a comfortable fit and a high level of sound insulation. The ear tips comes in 5 sizes – SS/S/M/L/LL. To make it easier to distinguish between the left and right earphones, one axis of the eartips is gray while the other is red. By tilting the earphones slightly and checking their color, it is easy to distinguish left from right even in a dim place.
Ear hooks that alleviate cable touch noise
The ear hook that Final designed has a smaller form. It does not utilize metal or resin wires and fit the ears of most people. The ear hook is slim and comfortable that you might forget you're wearing them. Cable noise – the unpleasant noise that occurs when the cable touches the user's body when they are walking – is dramatically reduced when using ear hooks. Soft, flexible coated cable material also help on this.
Silicon carry case
With this silicon carry case, the cables can be rolled up and stored easily. The earphones themselves are gently secured using thin dome-shaped silicon covers.
