AF180: "Practical, sexy, comfortable, and never-endingly enjoyable to listen to."

 

 

1 August, 2014 
Lachlan Fennen, Passion For Sound

Congratulations to the team at Audiofly for building exactly what they claim to be focussed on – musicians earphones. I can’t think of a more perfect signature for a fatigue-free performance or studio session with all of the required auditory information and no fuss. To my ears, the AF180s have nailed their brief with a casual confidence and maturity that speaks of lots of reflection, discussion and consideration by the team at Audiofly.

AF180: "4.5 stars. Recommended."

 

 

21 July, 2014 
Leigh Stark, GadgetGuy.com.au

A new model by Australian sound company Audiofly, the AF180 in-ear monitors are actually a pair of in-ear monitors with not just one driver, but four, with a crossover connection sending the audio signal to one of the four drivers.

AF140: "Impeccable audio quality"

 

14 June, 2014 
Samuel Babjide, Boored at Work

The AF140 produces a stand out level of quality. Its use of 3 drivers, two balanced and one dynamic armature, deliver precise sounds while also providing hitting the low keys. I can sincerely say that these are the best earbuds I’ve uses in a very long time. The comfort of the behind the ear design makes using the AF140 a very comfortable experience, and unlike many other earbuds I’ve used while running, the buds stay put.

AF180: "I don't want to take these IEMs out of my ears"

 

14 June, 2014 
hardbop, Head-Fi

Audiofly has made the most comfortable IEMs that I've placed in my ears. They are probably the easiest to insert as well. I was ready to plunk down the cash and go the custom route, but these have changed my mind. The manufacturer was kind enough to include Comply brand tips in their packaging, which certainly entirely alleviates feeling of having foreign bodies in my in my ears. I've easily listened to them for 40 hours in the week since I received them and there has been zero discomfort.

AF78: "These earphones are wonderful"

18 June, 2014 
Jay Burke, Android Guys

This is a high quality professional headset, designed by musicians, and at this price point, we will be a bit more critical versus something that may come with your smartphone. Bass is definitely not lacking, however a bit forced depending on the volumes. The dual drivers ensure great detail. Treble is near perfect allowing for amazing clarity, despite the issue with bass depending on the genre of music you are playing.

AF140: "A sense of ambience that seemed almost impossible"

9 June, 2014 
Brent Butterworth, StageSound! Xperience

It didn’t take long for me to hear that the Audiofly AF140s are pretty straightforward-sounding, well-voiced earphones. For my first few hours of casual listening (after my usual ten-hour break-in period with new ’phones) to various jazz and rock tunes, no particular tonal colorations or technical flaws distracted me. I was able to relax, forget about the gear, and focus on the music -- which, of course, is the whole point of buying any good audio gear.

AF78: "Overall a great sounding product"

7 April, 2014 
Rock.com

The overall sound quality was very good.  Nice overall sound balance and excellent  mix of high-end and bottom.  I listened to an assortment of musical styles and all sounded accurate and very listenable.  For the majority of users they are a well-designed and carefully-developed product.  Whether you're listening to jazz, rock, R&B, classical, or metal, all styles came through with clarity and realism.

AF45: "A burst of clarity and presence..."

22 March, 2014 
Digital Trends

The sound signature is defined by a refreshingly clear and open upper register, which allowed for an impressive level of instrumental separation in our evaluation. That clear top end was balanced with a powerful punch down below, which provided plenty of foundation without falling into the thick, muddy pitfalls so common for the entry-level genre.

AF78: "I haven’t encountered such depth in a small-body hybrid earphone before"

12 December, 2013 
Ohm Image

Vocals are front and centre, but with enough wiggle room for stereo effects. I haven’t encountered such depth in a small-body hybrid earphone before. The contrast in stage depth and stereo image is stark. And through it all, mids stick out so wonderfully. And then there’s that powerful, chalky bass. This presentation is just what Nick Cave and Arcade Fire ordered and Leonard Cohen ordered. And damn, it is a fine menu.

The Treble is sparkly and energetic. Not harsh at all, neither sibilant. Not too smooth to sound boring or missing, but not to be called a V-shaped signature. The right amount for most music genres.

AF78: "Audio separation and spatial spectrum are extremely effective... a truly three-dimensional audio field."

2 August, 2013
Chris Loeffler, Harmony Central

Audiofly AF78 differentiates itself from the rest of the ear bud market by combining dual drivers to achieve a fuller, more balanced sound. By combining a 9mm dynamic driver with their balanced armature driver, Audiofly is able to deftly juggle the dual duties of producing brilliant highs and warm mids and lows to create as uncolored a production as possible.

AF78: "Probably the best earbuds I have ever had the pleasure of using."

16 July, 2013
Jim Gresham, iDownloadBlog

Settling in with albums by Chicago, Eagles, and Pink Floyd, the crisp, clear, and detailed sound of the guitar was a new experience. Truly, the quality is unmatched by many other high-end headphones from other reviews. It is as if I could hear the individual vibrations from the guitar and even pick up the movement of fingers across the strings. The quality is nothing less than superb.

Shaun, HiFi Headphones

The AF45 has a sound signature that is powerful and accurate, something that appears hard to achieve with mid-range in-ears. Many in-ears at this price point have overly bloated bass, or are painfully accurate (mostly the former). Audiofly have done well with the AF45 to get the balance right.

The variety of included ear tips ensure as close to perfect a fit as possible. When playing music at a normal listening level there is little to no outside noise heard. This means they are excellent for a noisy gym, commuting on public transportation, or blocking out a loud coworker.

You can’t always bring the biggest and most awesome pair of headphones with you, and if you want the best sound from your smartphone or media player, that means finding something smaller yet still awesome enough for your audiophile ears. One brand might have the solution though, and it’s Australian made, too.

Grant Shepherd, Tech Trader Mag 

There are an abundance of headphones on the market and it’s easy for a consumer to be confused. These new in-ear additions from AudioFly deserve to stand out from the crowd. Unlike many other in-ear options in this price bracket, the AF78 feature both a balanced armature and 9mm custom dynamic drivers. What this means is it creates a more defined dynamic range that can handle both the high and low ends of the spectrum, not to mention the mid-range too. While many headphones try to over compensate theiraudio capabilities by ramping up the bass, these headphones have a more natural sound that is refreshing.

3 September, 2012
Thomas Carstens, Tech Kings 

You're dying to know how they sound, and let me tell you, the sound is to die for... You'll notice a little more splash in the cymbals, a little more body in the bass line, and a little more snap in the snare, along with those subtle nuances of real instrument recording that can often enhance the feel of a song (think guitar pick noise during strums, varying palm muting intensity, skin sliding accross bongo drum heads, that little thump when a pianist releases the sustain pedal and then presses it again, etc). Yes, you'll have all sorts of fun going back through your old recordings and having a listen from your new AF78 point of view.

Audiofly is a new company that really just started off this year announcing a new line of products during CES in January. Although they are still working on launching, I was able to get a model of their hybrid, dual-drivered AF78. Hybrids are becoming more and more popular, but are still a rare bunch having both a dynamic and balanced armature in their designs. Audiofly is really keen on designing every single aspect of a pair of headphones. With the AF78, there is not one area of the IEM’s housing that hasn’t received an artistic touch...

In fact, let me go one step further and say that the AF78 gives you much of the sound character of the AKG K3003 at about one-sixth the price. I was shocked to hear how much sense of ambience this IEM delivered. At 2:10 in Jeff Beck’s “Rollin’ and Tumblin’,” a guitar squeal dies out in a huge-sounding reverb tail. It’s a dramatic effect, and it sounded just as humongous and awesome through the AF78 as it did through the K3003...
