EX1 IEM Review
The EX1s are brighter than my other headphones (currently: Bose Soundtrue In Ear, Bose QC25, Apple Earpods, Samsung in ear), and those I’ve had previously (Bose AE2, Klipsch Image One). No detected sibilance, or other problems with the treble, but it’s noticeably more present/forward. Initially, the extra brightness of the EX1 seemed to make parts of the song sound almost harsh.
The Fiio EX1 comes in a slender box that is much smaller than the Titan 1 came with and feels less premium but compact. This is cost effective this is a fair compromise. There is a transparent portion on the box that shows the earpieces and rest is hidden under the packaging.

Am recomandat in repetate randuri producatorului chinez sa ia in consideratie piata de casti audio performante, aceasta cunoscand o crestere semnificativa in ultimii ani.
I was part of FiiO's worldwide review tour for their first in ear monitor, the EX1. Which is based on the very popular Titan 1 by Dunu. For ten days I could test this IEM. Many thanks to Joe Bloggs for organizing yet another tour and for including me again, and also for extending the loaner period! Neither do I work for FiiO nor have I any affiliation with them.
The Fiio EX1 is the first Fiio-branded IEM. If it looks familiar, that’s because it is basically a re-tuned Dunu Titan 1 (a collaboration made obvious by the appearances of both the Fiio and Dunu names on various parts of the product).
To sum up the Fiio EX1’s, they’re a very fun sounding headphone that I believe is a great way of introducing the mainstream audience into a new product line. The build quality, comfort and even the sound out classes most any other product I’m familiar with in this price range and should absolutely be a frontrunner to someone looking for either a great gift for a friend who’s interested in the field or even for yourself as a casual pair to tap your feet to.
The Fiio EX1 is Fiio’s first IEM offering, and they have jointly partnered with DUNU to create the EX1 that is currently in my hands. It is based heavily on DUNU’s Titan 1, and it shows in their similarities, also featuring the same titanium dynamic driver that is found in the Titan 1.
Abban a megtiszteltetésben lehetett részünk, hogy elsők között próbáltuk ki a FiiO első fülhallgatóját. Az EX1 segített megérteni a titán hangszórók karakterisztikai adottságait, ugyanakkor bebizonyította, hogy a minden körülmények közt hallható, kristálytiszta részletekért nem kell feltétlenül százezreket kiadni.
Lets cut right to the good part, the FiiO EX1 is a great sounding $89.99, £69.99 in-ear headphone.
The Fiio Ex1 arrived in an approximately 180mm x 80mm x 35mm retail box in Fiio’s traditional black and red colours. The box is fairly simple with a window to display the EX1, and specifications and descriptions of the EX1 on the rear.
