AudioFly is a brand we here at AndroidGuys find to be of high-quality and nothing short of impressive. Henry Wiygul recently reviewed the AudioFly AF56 and AudioFly AF78 and found them both to be fantastic. Building upon recent success, AudioFly has just announced its latest headphone set, the AF240, which is its first over-ear style. All previous models were of the in-ear variety.
Over-ear headphones offer a different sound signature because of the larger size and drivers. Almost all premiums brands have over-ear headphones, because they offer a sound-stage that sounds more true to life than the in-ear type. Many enthusiasts prefer the over-ear headphones because the sound signature is so much broader than their counterparts.
“The AF240s were designed with an honesty that reflects the sound stage we as musicians aspire to – we’re excited to finally share them with everyone,” said Audiofly CEO, Dave Thompson.
AudioFly is not a household name like Beats by Dre. and they don’t intend to sell to that crowd. AudioFly designs headphones for enthusiasts and audiophiles who want rich and detailed sound versus excess bass and variety in colors.
The AF240 is designed to enjoy for multiple hours at a time with comfortable memory foam earcups, and a lightweight frame. It also comes with a braided cable for reduced background noise, and is made from CORDURA fabric to protect it from damage. An integrated microphone and remote control is built directly into the cable so users can take phone calls from the headphones. A case for travel is also included to keep the $249.99 headphones from excessive wear and tear.
The Audiofly brand is a team of hardworking musicians and audio designers, creating quality products for musicians and passionate music lovers. You can find all the latest information on Audiofly by visiting www.audiofly.com.
