Captain Obvious again but yup, FiiO’s most mature universal monitor offering to date with a more resolving and expansive presentation than the FH5. I also much prefer this tuning than the darker FA7 though admittedly it is a more expensive option.

The inclusion of the filters is not as dramatic as some other filters systems but then I do not think it needs to be. There is just enough additional bass without it sounding bloated and even the treble filter sounds very accomplished in its tweaks. The emphasis is still on refined sound. These combined with the tips makes the FH7 a very versatile monitor indeed.

I don’t talk much about the value these days, it seems all over the place with new driver stuffed ‘Chifi’ entrants coming in much lower and some flagship gear going way beyond. However, in the case of the FH7, I think FiiO has done a remarkably good job keeping the FH7 under $500. In today’s market and with this level of performance and a package that is stuffed to the gills with filters and tips that’s a very good value for me. One well worth considering.
