Hi everyone! Today, we are going to review the second desktop headphones from FiiO and the first planar-magnetic offering from their stable, the FT5. While their official price tag hovers around ~$500, sharp-witted online shoppers can snag these for a more wallet-friendly $450 (check out this link for one such retailer).
Having previously impressed by the build quality, comprehensive set of accessories such as a detachable cable with multiple terminations, and dual earpad options of the FT3, my expectations for the FT5 were sky high. And indeed, they didn’t disappoint an aging planar-head. Without further ado, let’s check them out in the usual fashion.
