New Audiofly Range Coming at CES - Page 3

post #31 of 42

Damn, this waiting rubbish. The seemed to to racks full of these in the CES photos, we only need one of each to demo!

 

Will the plan be to send all the demo units they give you together? What about sending one each week, so we get each one for a solid week. We could could write a review and update our posts as we get the others?

 

Love the look of the case...

Just picked up a cheap pair of AF78s off eBay. I know they are not going to be my kinda phones but something about the look of them made me really want to try them. Savyr, I might dig up your EQ suggestion and see how that goes. I read someone describe then as the IEM HD650, that would be nice!

Yep, absolutely mate, I have put you in my list, so you will be included when the time comes, I've done review tours before so I know how to do it :wink_face:, I just need the damn unit to kick off the tour, which I don't have yet at the moment

 

I have not heard back from Audiofly, I've put in my request, put through my business case, all the details including what I will do to get the reviews for them etc, they got back to me and asked me about my reviews and involvement in Head-Fi, which I have provided that too, I have not heard anymore since that.

 

I think it is because the only one released in the market is the AF120, I don't think the rest (AF140/160/180) have released yet. Audiofly did tell me that they are expecting to get the stock within a month (this was 2-3 weeks ago)

Marcus from headphones.com.au says they have stock of the AF140! Just come in and he hasn't listened to them or put them up on their website yet.

So I've been playing with the new Audiofly AF140

And they sound pretty good!

I love the build/durability/accessories they come with, Audiofly do some great attention to detail. 
They are quite easy to fit, comfortable, have virtually nothing in the way of cord microphonics and.... they sound great!
Warm and punchy are the two words I'd use to describe how they sound, this makes the AF140 quite well suited to contemporary music including rock/pop/funk/electronic etc. They have a groovy musical sound to them that's really quite fun.
In other words : bass response is solid, quite well controlled and has good kick to it while managing to go quite deep. Midrange is smooth and clear, although the bass response can be a little more forward at times. Treble response is also smooth and detailed without being harsh so they shouldn't get fatiguing to listen to because of overly bright highs.

I really like the way these sound with music that has a bit of a beat, so I've been enjoying Funk/Synthpop styles on them quite a lot. I think for classical/Jazz/acoustic stuff the IM02 might be a slightly better choice due to their flatter response and slightly better levels of microdetail and separation but that's why there are different headphones :)

Niggling points : 
First: The earhooks can flex up a little on my ears (Kit found the same) but it's mainly when I'm sitting down, when standing the weight of the cables pull them down a little more securely and I'm guessing that it's just because they're a brand new pair, over time I expect the earhooks will settle down a little.
Second: you can hear the dynamic driver flexing when inserting the canals. Not a serious issue, but there have been times where I've had to play with the pressure to make sure the driver is "popped" the right way (but this only takes 2 seconds so I'm not that concerned).

2 year warranty
$350 price tag
Recommended :)

Hopefully I'll be able to get them up on the web catalogue today!

Sounds promising.

 

I have been told that I will get the review copy in about a couple of weeks time

Great news! Are you able to tour it? I recently got a set of the new IM02 and am really loving those, but do also love a well executed thick, warm, lush sound as well, sounds like these might be in that kind of ball park.

yes of course, the one sent to me are to be toured around Australia, I will definitely include you

 

Where do you live? NSW/VIC?

That is really great news! I'm in Sydney.
post #41 of 42

I had a quick listen to the AF120s and AF140s recently. I'm really excited for the AF160/180s which are now on the AF website.

 

In a quick listen, the AF120s remind me of the DT1350s in IEM form. A little tinny in the upper mids, but once you adjust after a moment or two, the sound is really neutral and transparent. The AF140s on the other hand have something magic about them. They're quite coloured and not entirely realistic, but they create some awesome ambience and musicality. I'm psyched to see what Audiofly bring with the higher models.

Sounds promising! Can't wait to try these out!!
