[REVIEW] AudioFly AF45 - Page 2

post #16 of 21

If you are a classical music enthusiast - AVOID  these units.

 

The AF45 has a good mid range nice and clear and a firm bass. The higher range though is a complete disaster.

Typically the higher notes of organ music are tainted with distortion sounding like an annoying accompanying whistle. If you want to hear your favorite opera singer hitting the high C's - -forget it, it's utterly destroyed by the accompanying distortion(whistle).

 

I have compared the AF 45's on laptop and mp3 players with the identical music on my Sennheiser PXC 300's - no whistle, Shure E215 very little colouring  only just perceptible. Even the buds that came with my Creative Zen xFi had little colouring on the upper registers although not as good as the AF 45's in the mid or bass ranges.

 

Made a big mistake with these - last audio  purchase I make online without trying out first.

If you are a classical music enthusias, you should try something that is described as neutral and flat. An pair of Etymotic is a good place to start.

I disagree. I found the HF5 and ER6 to be almost completely uninvolving with classical.

I would actually consider that a good trait on IEM that I used for listening Classical. That is, taking the involvement of the IEM out of the equation.

It was quite the opposite. Their poor dynamic range and overall lack of power ended up spoiling some of my favorite pieces.

Never find my ER4, iM716 or ER6i to lack power, as long as they are properly driven. But I have pretty good source and amp to begin with, so that was never the problem. I certainly don't like my ER4 on a less-than-powerful source. Also don't mind given them a little bass boost from time to time etysmile.gif
