The FH7 is FiiO's current flagship IEM, a five-driver hybrid combining the best of the various technologies we’ve seen in their previous IEMs. Cost notwithstanding, can it seriously challenge more established players in the game?

In designing their range of Elite pads for the HD800, Dekoni unapologetically broke all the rules by changing not only the material but also the shape, thickness and construction of the original pads. Would it be one change too many?
If you’re looking for foam tips that fit your ears like a glove, are washable and reusable, don’t change the sound quality and tonality of your expensive IEMs, and don't cost a fortune in the process, get yourself some Bulletz.
