New Audiofly Range Coming at CES - Page 2

post #16 of 42

Hi guys, i just bought the AF120 over at BH in NYC and they sound interesting, to say the least. I expected more bass but these can actually be considered bright. I don't feel the bass when I'm using the supplied eartips but with complys the bass actually appears.

I stopped by the booth last week and had about a 20 minute conversation with the CEO about all sorts of stuff during my "me-time" on Friday morning. He had me listen to the AF140, 160, and 180. All three were very good, but I think the 140 is the one that stood out to me the most due to the hybrid design. The 160 and 180 reminded of most other 3 and 4 armature sets, but I definitely like their version of memory wire much better than the others I've tried.

mm already available :O ?

would be curious to see some impressions re fit, insertion depth, accessories, cable, sound etc after some longer listening .
still bright with bass biggrin.gif ?

seems to be fairly reasonably priced at $250. (hmmm wait, not 2ba+DD).

Some more impressions here. Marcus at headphones.org.au rates the AF120. I am really keen to try them but I think I'll wait for the AF140 given the early reviews and the fact it comes with both the "performance cable" and the mic version. Apparently those are due out in the next week or two :popcorn:

AudioFly AF120 & AF140

The AF120, a BA/dynamic hybrid with 2-way crossover, already sounded significantly better to me than the AF78, with bass that is more controlled and better clarity audible from the armature driver, but it didn’t impress me quite as much as the AF140. The AF140, a triple-driver hybrid with dual balanced armatures per earpiece, sounded more refined, with good detail resolution and warm and punchy but controlled bass. I quite liked the AF140 – among triple-driver hybrids it’s priced around mid-field and while I can’t make any conclusive claims regarding the sound based on only a short audition, it certainly is an earphone I’d like to hear again.

 

AudioFly AF160 & AF180

The first BA-only monitors from Audiofly were also available for audition at CES. The $450 AF160 is a triple-driver model while the $550 AF180 joins theWestone 4 and Ultimate Ears 900 in the quad-armature club. Both earphones utilize detachable cables with MMCX (coaxial) connectors, which are becoming industry standard. They will ship with the stereo audio cable while the headset cable with mic & 3-button remote will be available as an optional accessory. Although I feel that at the $450/$550 MSRP both cables should be included, Audiofly’s entire new lineup is marketed in large part for stage use so excluding the smartphone cable makes some sense.

In my brief audition both earphones sounded pretty good – the triple-driver AF160 sounded a little strained in the bass region and didn’t reach quite as far down as the AF180 but the quad-driver sounded very good indeed, on-par with the best earphones I heard that day. I can’t say whether it’s as good as or better than Westone’s similarly-priced W4R model, but it certainly impressed me. Both the AF160 and AF180 had excellent clarity through the midrange and seemed energetic enough at the top end. I’d gladly give both units, especially the AF180, another try.

I've been in talks with Audiofly people for the last week and a half or so, trying to get a sample unit for an Australian tour, so far so good, stay tuned! :wink_face:

AF140 is what I asked for, but I am hoping to get either AF160 or AF180 too

Sweet, the AF140 is the one I'm most interested, but it would be great to compare them to the higher end models.
