Ready for an immersive sound experience? Be sure to check out the Final ZE8000 True Wireless Earbuds, now available for purchase! Boasting active noise cancelation and fantastic sound quality, these earbuds are ideal for any music lover.
Japanese audio company Final has officially unveiled its brand-new $349 ZE8000 Flagship true wireless earbuds!
For their new top-of-the-line wireless earphone model, Final has created what they call an ‘f-CORE for 8K Sound’ driver with a larger-than-average 13mm diaphragm. This new driver is designed to be exceptionally lightweight, with an aluminum-magnesium dome injection molded onto an elastic silicone surround, which is complemented by a floating mechanism for the voice coils.
This driver is also said to have a remarkably low total harmonic distortion (THD) compared to other true wireless earphone models, offering a comprehensive and intricate representation of sound texture and detail.
In addition, Final has put in a lot of effort to make the ZE8000 the perfect package for what they call “8K Sound” using the new f-CORE driver. To make sure they achieve the best possible sound quality and power efficiency, they have opted for Class-AB amplifiers instead of the typical Class-D amplifier technology in many TWS models. This is combined with Rubicon’s Polymer Multilayer Capacitors (PML CAPs) for digital signal processing to give the user the complete 8K Sound experience.

Along with this, Final says the ZE8000 is also packed with features never seen before in a TWS model. To ensure the sound quality is always at its peak, Final has developed its sound quality-focused Active Noise Cancelling (ANC). This ANC is designed not to affect the sound quality and to help keep the listening environment quiet and free from any external noise, which adds to a stress-free listening experience.
The ZE8000 has four listening modes each with its own advantages and applications. Noise Cancelling Mode drowns out ambient sounds, Wind-Cut Mode reduces wind noise, Ambient Sound Mode blends music with external sounds, and Voice Through Mode prioritizes ambient sound so users can communicate easily. Additionally, the Volume Step Optimizer enables users to customize their listening volume in more precise increments. This feature is adjustable in Final’s Connect app and can be turned on or off depending on the user’s preference.
Besides the SBC and AAC codecs, the ZE8000 offers up the Qualcomm aptX and aptX Adaptive codecs for wireless transmission of up to 24bit/96Hz. Those who possess Snapdragon Sound-enabled devices will be satisfied as the ZE8000 is completely compatible with this technology, which can upgrade their wireless link even further. Snapdragon Sound technology has been created to offer listeners an ideal sound experience for video games, streaming music, voice and video calls, and other activities.
Additionally, these earphones are designed to be both comfortable and secure. The earbud section is divided into two parts, allowing it to fit people of all ear shapes and sizes, and also comes with various sizes of ear tips. Additionally, the outer part is supposed to give the ZE8000 a stylish look while housing all the components that can obstruct listening pleasure. The accompanying charging case is also attractive, with USB-C charging and battery status LED for easy viewing.
