Headphone Zone X FiiO JD1 In-Ear Monitor launched in India

Headphone Zone, in collaboration with FiiO, has introduced a budget-friendly in-ear monitor (IEM) named ‘FiiO JD1’ in India, aiming to make high-quality audio accessible to everyone while delivering exceptional performance.

The Headphone Zone X FiiO JD1 offers a balanced sound signature, featuring energetic bass and smooth treble, ensuring clear and accurate sound. Its 10mm LCP Dynamic Driver is designed to democratize high-end audio, providing powerful sound with faster transient responses.

Crafted with high-quality materials, the JD1 includes an aluminum alloy sound nozzle for precise sound transmission. The inclusion of oxygen-free copper (OFC) detachable cables ensures clear audio transmission for an uninterrupted high-fidelity music experience.

Designed for comfort during long listening sessions, the JD1 features a front-rear cavity design for balanced pressure relief, along with a lightweight construction of less than 7g per ear unit.

The JD1 offers two variants: a Standard 3.5mm variant with an in-line mic and 3-button remote, compatible with smartphones and laptops with a 3.5mm output, and a Type-C variant with a built-in Hi-Res DAC capable of decoding audio up to 96kHz / 24 bit.

The Type-C variant features five different sound profiles (Default, Powerful Bass, Treble, Vocal, Harman reference) and tunings for customized sound signatures.
