I’ve given Final something of a dressing down over the term ‘8K sound’, but I’m ready to eat some humble pie. If ever the term ‘8K Sound+’ (an upscaler option in Final’s dedicated ZE8000 MK2 and ZE8000 app) could apply to something you detect with your eardrums rather than pixels perceived as light hitting your retinas, that is what you’ll hear with these earbuds. The term still doesn’t sit well with me, but oh, the sound from the ZE8000 MK2 certainly does.

For sound quality alone, these are some of the very best noise-cancelling earbuds in the business. Rarely have I heard the cymbal taps and heavy bassline in D’Angelo’s Untitled (How Does It Feel) with such snap, clout and clarity through the leading edges of notes, thus giving the silky stylings of the one they also call D Mike extra yardage to soar above it all.
