Not that long ago we took at a look at Audiofly’s AF78 In-Ear headphones and after our evaluation they were the best in-ear headphones we had ever used! Moving down the product stack today we have the AF56m’s, which sits in the mid-range of Audiofly’s offerings. Audiofly says this about the AF56m’s, “Packing our largest in-ear driver, the AF56 delivers uncompromising sound, pumping out astonishing clarity over the whole spectrum with a rich and detailed bottom end… all with a nostalgic smirk”. If these are anything like the AF78’s we have another great set of headphones from Audiofly. These are the “m” version of the headphones meaning they have an in-line microphone that will allow you to take calls. Let’s take a look and see if we have another winner from Audiofly!
To me in-ear headphones or earbuds are extremely important. Maybe I am different than most of you but when I’m working on the go on my laptop, listening to music on my iPhone, or playing a game on my tablet, in-ear headphones are my escape from the real world. Many people think all in-ear headphones are the same, but if you’ve had the chance to experience any higher-end models you know that is not true. I also have to say after experiencing very good in-ear headphones the ones that come with are portable devices don’t cut it. I’ve actually been using the same pair of in-ear headphones since 2011! Today I will be taking a look at Audiofly’s AF-78 Premium In-Ear Headphones. These are Audiofly’s most expensive in-ear headphones and should be great competition for my 4-year old go-to pair! Let’s get started!
Cooler Master today has announced the CM Storm Resonar Gaming Headset, which they say is the first in-ear earphones with patented Bass FX Technology to serve gaming and music needs on multiple devices.
Music is such an important part of many people’s lives, as we speak I am listening to an awesome playlist that helps me concentrate when writing reviews. When you have great music you want to share it with your friends. Well Wicked Audio knows this and they have come up with the Heist, which is a set of earbuds that have an in-line audio connection so that you can connect another set of headphones or earbuds to share your music. While this is a great idea these earbuds cost under $20 so we will have to see just how well they sound.
When it comes to listening to music, watching a movie or even playing a game we want great quality sound. Many people get this in the form of large bulky headphones. While this do provide great sound they are not the easiest to travel with or say take on a run with you. This is where in-ear headphone or earbuds as many people refer to them come in. Today we are taking a look at a set from Jabra called VOX. VOX features 8.6mm drivers at 16 Ohm, a lightweight design, in-line controls and much more. Are these the next set of in-ear headphones for you? Read on as we take a look.
For some earphones are what they occasionally use when they need to and most likely those people are fine with the earphones that come with their device. Others are people who depend on their earphones to take them away from their surroundings or keep them motivated. These are people who are traveling, working out, or are working remotely. They not only want great sound, but also great comfort as well. RHA, a company out of Glasgow, UK has sent us their latest earphones, the MA450i. These earphones feature a solid aluminum design, 10mm Mylar drivers, seven interchangeable ear-tips and a fabric braided cable. The MA450i has also been certified for use with iPhone, iPod and iPad devices so you will be able to make and receive calls.
I only started using earphones or earbuds as many people call them a few years ago. So many people think that all earphones are the same and will use the ones that come with their device. I did that for quite some time before I tried a different set of earphones and since then I’ve been trying all different types of earphones. Today we have a set of earphones on the more expensive end coming in at $130. These zinc-alloy earphones feature 8mm V-MASQUE drivers, BLISS 3.0 (Bass Level Isolating Soft Silicone) hybrid silicone fittings, Kevlar® reinforced cables and a 24K gold plated plug. Let’s check them out and see if they will be the next earphones you own.
There are a lot of contenders in the earphone market. The prices range from $10 up into the $200s or more for those simple little speakers folks plug into their ears for a few hours at a time, listening to a variety of forms and genres of music. Some folks can’t tell the difference between the low-end ones and the high-end ones, and prefer affordability over demonstrable sound quality. After all, if you can hear something, the earphones are working well, right? Clearly, we audiophiles know there is a difference. However, we, too, fancy ourselves frugal, so we’ll find the highest-quality audio devices we can afford. Enter the MEElectronics M9 earphones, a $20 set of earphones which sound like $80 earphones.
We all know that the “stock” earphones that come with most products are not the best. The iPhone is not any different, the earphones that are included are good, but nothing great. There are so many third party earphone’s made specifically for the iPhone it is hard to choose. Well Radius has sent us their Atomic Bass Earphones for iPhone that have a quite low retail price compared to other earphone’s out there. Let’s see if they are actually a good deal or their price reflects their performance and quality.
