Metropolitan Pavilion, New York, NY- Consumer Electronics Conference Week showcased the latest and greatest in headphones. Once you fill and set your playlist, you want to hear your music the way it should sound and many off the shelf headphone sets fall short of delivering sound with quality.
As Noel Lee, (Monster) said in his CE Week speech, “This is the year of the headphone!” Endless choices are flooding the market to meet the consumer’s growing demand with varying degrees of quality.
Life of a Rock Star loves a new line of superior quality and affordable headphones out of Australia developed by musician Dave Thompson called Audiofly.
The cording and design is what caught our attention first. Typical headphone wire tangles up whether you are out being active or your headphones are resting at the bottom of your bag. Audiofly uses cabling typically seen in outdoor equipment that delivers better sound and functionality.
“Wired for additional clarity and strength, the AF45, AF56 and AF78 feature our Audioflex™ braided cable with Kevlar® reinforced conductors and a CORDURA™ fabric outer sheath. On top of this our AF78 cable has a twisted core to reduce electromagnetic interference.” --via Audiofly
But what really sets the brand apart is the moment you put you them in your ear and listen to your music. Sound comes alive in a way you hadn’t thought possible before. The headphones create a space between your inner ear and the music that even a novice can instantly detect and appreciate. You no longer have music pumping into your eardrum, you are merely in the room with the music enjoying highs, lows and mids you’ve never heard before.
Audiofly is created by musicians for musicians and as a result offers a Noise Isolating In Ear Design. Silicon ear tips mold to your inner ear to provide a snug fit perfect for use while exercising or running around.
1 Machined anodized alloy outer housing with precision laser cut venting for acoustic optimization
2 Custom voiced 9mm dynamic driver
3 Premium balanced armature driver
4 Cable strain relief with right hand braille marker
5 Acoustically engineered sound port
6 High grade silicon tips for a customized fit
What does Isolation mean to the listener?
“Isolation is about creating a space between your listening experience and the outside world. Most regular bud-style headphones rest on the outside of the ear and don’t block external sound. In-ear headphones were designed to comfortably fit in your ear canal, forming a seal that provides acoustic isolation from ambient noise, for clear intimate sound.
Originally developed for musicians wanting to hear themselves in loud onstage environments, sound isolating headphones use a pliable silicon or foam bud to block background noise. Audiofly earphones all come with range of different sized buds allowing you to personalize the fit of your headphones. This enables small high-performance drivers to work their magic and deliver crystal clear sound to your ears.
Whether you’re on the bus or train, exercising, at work or out playing, sound isolating headphones mean you don’t have to compete with everything else in your environment. They’re ultimately much better for the long-term health of your ears – you can enjoy high fidelity sound at a lower volume.” --via Audiofly
