For those who aren't aware of Audiofly, it is a brand out of Australia that makes some seriously amazing headphones. The company works with musicians during the development of its products to ensure it meets the needs of those who are working on audio each and every day, to ensure its products are the absolute best they can be.
Audiofly mixes this top-of-the-line engineering with a classic design, for some beautiful headphones. The company has drivers that are customized for "insane detail" as it puts it, with super strong "CORDURA" fabric cables, hybrid speaker configurations for warmth and clarity, as well as clearer microphone technology.
The company is relatively new, being founded in 2011, but have quickly become a force to be reckoned with in the audio industry. When the company reached out to me about reviewing their flagship AF180 in-ear monitors, I wouldn't be able to resist myself.
Specifications, Pricing and Availability
The AF180 in-ear monitors are part of Audiofly's Performance Series, with three other models sitting beside them. Starting with the AF120, AF140 and the AF160, the AF180 is the pinnacle of Audiofly's in-ear monitors.
Audiofly has engineered four armature drivers into the AF180s, something that the company says is "geared for unparalleled speed and clarity". The cable itself is something that I've never quite experienced before, and while I've had my fair share of braided cables, the materials that Audiofly have made the cable from is nothing short of amazing.
The company has a super light twisted cable with its CORDURA fabric which reinforce most of the cable. This means that you're not going to get a damaged cable after taking it around and using it for months and months on end.
When it comes to pricing, Audiofly are aiming for the true enthusiasts with its AF180s, with a price of $549.95 AUD. Audiofly sells its audio products throughout the world, but the AF180s aren't found everywhere. Amazon has the AF120 listed, but not the AF180s for example.
What's In The Box
When looking at the box, you know you have a quality device that you're about to use - especially when you've just slapped down $550 - but it's once the box is opened and you get into the goods that you know that you've got something truly amazing in your possession.
The front of the package shows off the AF180s, and that they are dual driver in-ear monitors. We have more information on the front, teasing that there is a leather storage wallet included, something we're going to take a look at shortly.
There's a magnetic flap that keeps the front peeled to the box, but you can peel this back to reveal the inside of the packaging. On the left we have some information on the company, on the right, we have the Audiofly AF180s.
A closer look at the package, where we can see the leather storage wallet, and the AF180s above it.
Once everything is out of the package, we can see that we have some instructions, a manual, the AF180s and the high quality leather storage wallet.
Here we have a closer look at the leather storage wallet, which is nothing short of awesome. It feels great in the hand, looks high quality, and will keep your expensive AF180s nice and safe.
Here we have a few up close and personal shots of the AF180s. The color scheme used by Audiofly is gorgeous, with a beautiful blue and black theme that really plays well with the design of the in-ear monitors.
Here we have an up-close look at that super light twisted cable with its CORDURA fabric.
These final two shots are using the macro lens on my camera, to get an even closer look at the high-quality leather storage wallet that Audiofly includes in the packaging for the AF180s.
