Heaven VII

Delivers a vast sound stage and natural sound you could listen to forever through the metal powder injection molding method MIM.
Heaven VII pursues the special attributes of final audio design products – a vast sound stage and vivid vocals. The vocals reverberate warmly across the full-range of clear sounds achieved with the product. With MIM (Metal Injection Molding), a special metal working process, a housing that optimizes acoustics not possible through regular machining is achieved. Compared to before, a new single driver unit excelling in bass tone reproduction is employed. With what is in principle ideal full-range reproduction, the result is natural sound reproduction that you could listen to forever. The back design is not merely for decoration either. Resonance dispersion has been factored into the design, making for a high-level balance between beauty and function.

* MIM (Metal Injection Molding)
Fine metal powder is mixed with a binder, and after molding this with a die as is done with resin, the form is sintered in a furnace at an exceedingly high temperature. Freedom of form and precision are high
with this method, but it is difficult to finish the surface, and hence the process is not often used for parts whose external appearance is displayed.

Full-range balanced armature driver
Compared to other products in the Heaven series, the driver unit employed here is superior in terms of bass tone reproduction. In principle, this makes for ideal full range reproduction with a single driver.
Stainless steel housing utilizing MIM (Metal Injection Molding)
MIM is a method whereby fine metal powder is mixed with a binder, and after molding this with a die as is done with resin, the form is sintered in a furnace at an exceedingly high temperature and the shape is reconciled. As with molded plastic products, there is a great deal of freedom of form with this method, although it was necessary to solve problems arising with the method such as precision control owing to the 20-30% degree of shrinkage that occurs and the difficulties involved with achieving a surface finish at a level acceptable for outer casings. We solved the problems related to MIM using technology we cultivated during the development of titanium earphones using a 3D printer. By making the housing two simple parts, we were able to control the resonance of the housing to the utmost. The back design is not merely for decoration ? it is a form that works to disperse resonance.
Original ear pieces - five size to choose from
Two silicone materials of different hardness are employed in the sound conduit tube and the section coming into contact with the user's ear. With the sound conduit tube, extremely hard silicone has had grooves scored into it, making for both strength and flexibility. They can be fitted to the aural canal while maintaining their shape. Soft silicone is employed with section that comes into contact with the ear, and a comfortable fit along with a high level of sound insulation has been achieved. Five sizes are included with the product, SS/S/M/L/LL. Please choose the size that best suits you.
Stainless mesh filter + acoustic resistor
With stainless steel mesh and an acoustic resistor, balance is achieved between medium and high tones.
Original elastic cable eliminates "touch noise".
Enhancing the flexibility of the cable and increasing its thickness results in a decrease in touch noise.
Color variation
Two color variations – POLISHED SILVER and MATT BLACK (direct shop exclusive)

How to wear the earphones
Please check the L (left) and R (right) indicators on the left and right bushes. Holding the product, fit into the ears using a slight twisting motion. Since sound quality differs greatly according to the positioning of the ear piece, move each ear phone around while playing music until you find the position with the balance that suits you best. Once you find this position, it will easy to replicate it on subsequent occasions.

* It is usual that a person's ears differ from left to right in terms of shape. As such, the optimum positioning of the product differs from left to right.
Sound quality reviews
Smooth and flat across all bands. Response is good, and the product has an honest sound. A mellow timbre and a cleanliness with nothing else mixed in is characteristic of this model. Just right for listening to pop music; since they have good response, these earphones also display an unexpected efficiency with intense music such as heavy metal.
User reviews
I got Heaven VII on April 2, and this is a report after having used them for about a week. Describing these earphones in brief, I would say that this product is one that has you feeling that they are "a new challenge from final audio".

About 4 years ago, I purchased Heaven's first series (S?), and this was my first encounter with final audio; I remember being very surprised when I listened with them. They were completely different to other earphones I had used, and I bought them being surprised by the vast dynamic range and the strongly modulated sizzle factor. Heaven VII is something completely different to previous products; this model competes on its extremely straight expressiveness. In a whiskey commercial a while ago, they used the expression "nothing added; nothing taken away", and these earphones make a similar claim. They have a high level of natural reproduction, from bass through to high tones.

Ordinary earphones emphasize bass tone reproduction, extol the clarity of high frequencies and focus their attention on the flavor of the sound; it seems as though Heaven VII pursues considerably faithful reproduction of original sounds. This is a product with which you can enjoy a sense of realism, the same kind of sound created by musicians on stage. Since they are pursuing not harmonic but fundamental tones, one of their characteristics is that you clearly understand the musical instrument intervals.

You can strongly feel this difference with acoustic instruments in particular. They thoroughly reproduce the sounds of live musical instruments with vast ranges, such as grand pianos. You can completely feel the expressiveness of sound that is hard and reaches right to the very corners of a concert hall, like that of a Steinway.

If I were to mention flaws, I would say that it's hard to listen to them at their best. The ear piece size, how they fit with the wearer's ears and surrounding noise all have a great influence. It's only been about a week since I started using them, but it feels like the depth (three-dimensional feel) of the sound increases as the housing ages. I don't know how long it will take to reach its best state, but this is a product that I recommend to those who are interested in faithfulness to original sound and performance reality.
