They were part of the “earspeakers” group of headphones, like the AKG K1000, or more recently the Mysphere và RAAL SR1A, where the drivers are not in direct tương tác with the ears through a sealed front volume (totally sealed or not).

Sound Impression

They sound rather pleasant, but a bit too polite. Tonal balance is mid-centric, a sound signature you don’t hear anymore in modern headphones. Bass is very light. I would almost Call them bassless, as there is little lớn no impact below 100hz. This is one of the most bass-light headphones I’ve owned, with the K501. There is also no midbass.

Midrange is acceptable, & the best part of the frequency response of the F1. It’s flat from 150 lớn 1 kHz, then rise a bit in the 1-2 kHz range, following by a dip and remaining slightly recessed in the treble. The midrange timbre is a bit weird but it suprisingly doesn’t bother me much.

Some head-fiers Điện thoại tư vấn the F1 the equivalent of the HD800 in terms of staging and clarity. Definitely not the case lớn me. While they indeed sound quite wide, they are not HD800 width level. And not the best word in clarity. The treble lacks sparkle và excitement.

The F1 is definitely not a formula oto when it comes khổng lồ speed và resolution. Its punch and dynamics are decent at best. The midrange remains pleasant. But it works only for certain genres, where bass is rare. Do not try listening lớn EDM or hip-hop on these. You can still try applying some EQ khổng lồ the bass.

The F1 is an interesting headphone for sure, but in my opinion it doesn’t compete with the current mid-fi headphones lượt thích the HD600 (although it came out in 1997 too). It’s decently resolving và relaxing to listen to lớn, without any sign of harshness (and no muddiness). But very genre specific.
