Japanese audio brand Final has finally entered the wireless game with the launch of its first true wireless earbuds, the ZE3000.

Taking its name from Final’s famed E3000 wired earphones, the ZE3000 features a single-driver design and a proprietary acoustic chamber that promises to deliver “ultra-low distortion” and a “natural sound” suitable for every genre. Like many of its peers, the ZE3000 uses the latest Bluetooth 5.2 technology and comes with support for aptX, aptX Adaptive, AAC, and SBC audio codecs.

The ZE3000’s £119 / $149 / €119 price tag also puts it in direct competition with the Beats Studio Buds and the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, both of which offer active noise cancellation features that Final’s latest offering lacks. Despite this, Final claims that the shape of ZE3000’s housing and the ear tips provided are able to suppress external noise and achieve excellent noise isolation performance.

At full charge, users can enjoy a decent seven hours of music playback, while the charging case itself stores up to 35 hours of battery life. Touch operation is also supported on the ZE3000, so you can easily pause and play your music, adjust volume, change tracks, and take calls.

Available in black and white, the earbuds sport a water-resistance rating of IPX4 and are finished in a textured ‘SHIBO’ coating that feels premium and minimises fingerprints.
