Final Audio FI-BA-SS G Balanced Armature In-Ear Headphones

The Final Audio FI-BA-SS G Headphones Offer an Incredible Listening Experience

With their special “BAM Mechanism” design, air movement inside the housing is optimized, allowing them to reproduce deep bass without the distortion and muddiness normally reproduced by balanced armature unit earphones. The design theory of this breakthrough earphone rests on a single driver directly connected to the circuit – uncomplicated by the presence of other drivers. The BA-SS is a handmade product, made by Japanese sound engineers with a full-focus on ideal sound with no compromises. This is our flagship model of the BA series and our premium model in the Balanced Armature category.

General Features

Noise-Canceling
Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
No
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
No
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Bluetooth means that the audio signal is transmitted from your device to the headphones via a Bluetooth connection.

Corded or Bluetooth means that the headphones can be used as corded headphones or as Bluetooth headphones. They have an input in one or both earcups for use as a corded headphone while they also have a built-in battery for use as Bluetooth wireless headphones.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Corded
Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
No
Connector Type
The type of connection the headphones use to connect to receive the audio signal from a music source. Traditional headphones use an analog 3.5mm headphone jack. Newer technology has allowed digital signals to be sent directly to the headphone using an Apple Lightning or USB-C cable.
Jack Size
Refers to whether the headphones use a 3.5mm or 1/4" headphone jack connection.
3.5mm
Jack Angle

The Jack Angle refers to the angle of the input jack on the headphone cable.


Straight Jack: Straight plug with no angle.


Angled Jack: Angled plug, usually a 90 degree angle.

Swivel Jack: A swivel jack is able to swivel between a straight plug and an angled plug.

Angled Jack
Detachable Cable
Refers to whether the cable can detach from the headphones. If a pair of headphones has a detachable cable, the cable can be replaced with a longer cable, one with (or without) a microphone or if you accidentally damage the cable.
No
Material
Refers to materials used to build the headphones. Most headphones are built from some combination of plastic and metal to give you a durable pair of headphones.
Metal
Replaceable Ear Cushions
Refers to whether the ear cushions can be removed and replaced. Often times on heavily used headphones, the ear pads can wear out long before the actual headphones. Headphones with replaceable earpads often last much longer than headphones without replaceable earpads.
Yes
Protective Case
Refers to whether a pair of headphones come with a protective case.
No
Water Resistant
This refers to the level of water resistance of the fitness tracker. Some fitness trackers are water resistant and can be used while swimming, while others are only splash proof or should not be used near the water.
No
Child Safe
Refers to whether a pair of headphones are designed specifically for children. Child safe headphones feature volume limiting technology so that your child can’t damage their ears while listening to music.
No
Foldable
Refers to whether a pair of headphones can be folded up. These headphones feature hinges in the frame above the earcups that allow the headphones to neatly fold into a much more manageable size. Folding headphones are perfect for anyone who spends a lot of time traveling and needs a compact pair of headphones that can fit in their bags.
No
Ear Hooks
These headphones feature hooks that wrap around your ears for a secure fit.
No

Audio Features

Driver Type

The physical design of the driver in the headphones.

Balanced Armature:
A balanced armature driver uses a coil wrapped around an armature which is held in between two magnets until it is stimulated by an electrical current. When stimulated, this armature is magnetized which causes it to rotate one way or the other around a pivot point which moves the diaphragm to create sound. Balanced armature driver headphones are generally earbuds and can have multiple drivers in each earbud.

Dynamic:
Dynamic drivers are the most common driver type. They feature a permanent magnet, usually neodymium, a voice coil and a conical diaphragm to drive your music. A dynamic headphone driver looks pretty much identical to any typical home theater speaker.

Electrostatic:
Electrostatic drivers are made up of an extremely thin membrane, usually a coated PET film, stretched between two metal plates. An electrical signal is applied to the metal plates to create an electrical field which, depending on its polarity, draws the speaker diaphragm toward one of the plates which forces air through the perforations in the diaphragm which generates the sound wave.

Planar Magnetic:
A planar magnetic driver is made up of a large membrane suspended between two sets of oppositely aligned magnets. An electric charge is applied to the membrane to induce movement and produce sound waves.

Balanced Armature
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
112 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
20 - 25,000 Hz
Audiophile
Audiophile headphones represent some of the finest headphones available. Audiophile headphones produce genuinely outstanding sound quality as well as extraordinary build quality, components and comfort. They are truly the finest headphones available.
Yes
Built-in Amplifier
This refers to whether the headphones have an amplifier built-in.
No
Amplifier Recommended
This refers to whether a separate headphone amplifier is recommended for use with a specific pair of headphones. It is highly recommended that any headphone with an impedance greater than 100 ohms be amplified.
No
Pass Throughs
Refers to whether a pair of headphones has an output to connect to another pair of headphones.
No
