Sonorous III headphones boast understated design and sweet tonal response

Headphones
[MUSIC] Don't let their size fool you, if you're looking for a headphone that sounds equally well at home as it does on the go, this is a good bet. I'm Justin with Cnet and this is a first look at the Sonorous III Headphones from Final Audio Design. You might not have heard of Final Audio Design before, but that's because they're a relatively niche brand from Japan, known for their Ten, their flagship audio file over ear headphone that costs five grand. Now even they know that price eliminates a lot of customers. So Final recently came out with a Sonorous Three. Which is the budget-friendly alternative to the Ten. It has the same attention to detail and a similar sound. But for a lot less money. Instead of the aluminum and gold leaf trim that you see on the Ten. The Three goes for ABS plastic for the ear cup housing and the rail connection. But that's not to say this doesn't feel like a luxurious headphone. the stainless rails and the plush leather cover the headband and the cuff are premium quality and even though they are a bit heavier than others, their cushion to weight ratio really makes them feel comfortable for long term listening. So, in terms of accessories, you get a detachable Y cable that locks into place by twisting each side ninety degrees I'm a little disappointed though that the finals doesn't include a carrying case to protect it on the go. Or a second cable with smart phone controls. But those are minor complaints and really not that big of a deal. So, how do they sound? Well, they deliver an impressive amount of power even from a mobile device with plenty of low end texture and detail that'll really make you appreciate your [INAUDIBLE] track. But they also sound great using Spotify on a portable music player too. With plenty of open space for the titanium diaphragm to move around, the headphones have a very open sound stage that really takes the music out of your head and. It simulates the audio qualities of a virtual live performance. You can check out all the details of this headphone and my forward view on CNET. But that's gonna do it for this video. You just took a first look at the final audio design, Sonos 3 headphones. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
