We have collaborated with the smart guys at Echobox to bring an fantastic competition with the chance to win a complete Audiophile Starter Kit, comprising the exciting new Explorer DAP (in one of a choice of colours), a matching dock, and a pair of MFI (Apple Certified Microphone) Finder X1i Earphones, a complete system worth more than $800! The Explorer DAP is so new even we’ve not tested it yet, but the Finder X1 earphones were reviewed by Chris Martens in issue 139 of Hi-Fi+.
Chris wrote that Finder X1 comes with, “…a set of three screw-on, colour-coded white, black, and red tuning filters that allow users to adjust the sound signature of the X1s to suit their tastes.” According to Echobox, the white filter, “offers a warmer sound, with more bass and less emphasis on treble, while the black filter creates a more balanced sound, and the red filter is the brightest of the three”.
The X1s offer high apparent build quality, sleek design, sophisticated use of materials, and - with the right filters in place – a sound that is vibrant, expressive, and alive. Given their reasonable price, who could wish for more?”
Which of the three colours of Finder X1 filters does Echobox say produces the most balanced sound?
