The Final UX3000 Headphones feature a practical design that allows for tilting and rotating of the ear cups. The arcup face plate is textured with a crepe-like finish, which serves a functional purpose by concealing fingerprints and dirt. The sides of the headband showcase white, laser etchings featuring The Final Logo, while the headband is constructed from plastic with metal band reinforcement. A clicky ratchet mechanism allows for adjusting to different head sizes, and the headband is generously padded and covered in Soft Poo leather. The headphones feature a robust folding metal hinge, but do not exude a premium look and feel.
The passive noise isolation of the UX3000 Headphones minimizes sound leakage both in and out, significantly aiding the active noise cancellation for low base sounds and lower midrange frequencies. However, its efficacy diminishes in blocking higher frequencies like baby cries or voices.
Tactile plastic buttons control various functions, including volume, calls, play, pause, voice assistant and power. The power button is designed to deactivate Bluetooth, but does not completely power off the headphones, which could be an issue if forgotten to be disabled. The left earcup houses the USB-C port and ANC button, providing convenient toggling of the ANC feature. Unfortunately, a transparency mode is not available.
The built-in microphone offers excellent amplification and natural pickup, but lacks noise filtration.
5 mm audio cable and a 1.2 M USB type C charging cable.
Design and Comfort
The Final UX3000 Headphones feature a sleek and modern design, with a low clamping force and weighing 260 g for optimal user comfort. The ear cups are padded with comfortable foam covered in poo leather, and feature breathable mesh on the inner sides to reduce sweating and heat. However, the inner hole dimensions may be a concern for those with larger ears in terms of sound audio performance.
The UX3000 exhibits pronounced volume with a 3.5 mm wired connection compared to Bluetooth. The headphones showcase a base-boosted profile with subdued treble, affecting the sound stage and compromising accuracy. Fortunately, users can adjust the sound signature using a third-party EQ app. The inclusion of Apex Low Latency (Apex LL) provides low latency, approximately 40 milliseconds, which is beneficial for gaming. However, compatibility relies on phone support and newer phones may opt for Apex Adaptive with around 80 milliseconds latency, incompatible with Apex LL.
Connectivity and Battery Life
The UX3000 offers multi-point connection for up to two devices, but manual selection is unavailable due to the absence of app support, limiting control to the last two paired devices. The extended battery life averages 22 hours with AMC on and 33 hours with AMC off at 60 volume using the SBC codec. A full recharge takes 2.5 hours, lacking Quick Charge.
Support included accessories comprise a branded drawring soft shell fabric pouch and unbranded cables, including a 1.2 M 3.5 mm audio cable and a 1.2 M USB Type C charging cable.
