Publish time:2017-09-11

 As a novice in the earphones industry, you could see our improvement this year, especially the lately released detachable balanced earphones F5 and F9 are well accomplished by our users. Thanks for your support to FiiO all the way!

To get you more acquainted with our earphones, we collect the feedback from our customers and some problems we think you might encounter below for your reference. We will also update this post if any more feedback in the future.

 

 FAQ of F9

 

1. Why is the volume control of F9 not working on iPhone?

A: First of all, ever since iPhone 7, there are iPhones with 3.5mm headphone jack and without 3.5mm headphone jack. We could see from the trend that iPhone will directly use lightning earphones or Bluetooth earphones. And those earphones will certainly come with in-line remote control. And we will need the MFi certificate and dedicated chips from Apple to support the whole functions for the existing iPhones. Otherwise, we could only support Play/Pause for iPhones.

   So far, only the F5 in-line remote control could be perfectly compatible with Android/Apple devices. And it has been authorized the MFi certificate. Our other earphones which have the remote control could only support Play/Pause with iPhone.

   Besides, the previous iPhone before iPhone7 on the market are getting less and less. So our future 3.5mm in-line remote control earphones will not support the remote control on previous gen iPhones. Please kindly understand that.

 

2. The spec of F9
A: Please refer to the introduction on our website:

3. What's the diameter of F9's conduit?
A: It's maximum diameter is 6.0mm. It's recommended to choose 5.0mm eartip if you're planning to buy foam eartip and choose 3.5-5.0mm eartip if you're planning to buy silicone eartip. Theoretically, the smaller the aperture of the eartip is, the more bass you could get, and the larger the aperture is, the better pitch you could get. PS: For reference only.

A: No,  F9 is not noise cancelling.
