“The sound is more refined, more balanced and more satisfying. Take Tina Arena’s old classic ‘I’m in Chains’. It opens creamily with a firm bass line accompanied by Tina climbing way up there, and this combo continues throughout. It’s handled nicely. The lone piccolo amid the continuing bass in Karl Jenkins’ ‘Armed Man’ soars nicely. The highs can get a little harsh, but for buds these perform impressively.
I mentioned the comfort of the original AF100s. I’m not fond of buds but these had moulded cables that slid in behind the ears to hold them nicely in place, simple and very effective, and still comfy after a couple of hours even with reading glasses on. That design ain’t broke so Audiofly didn’t try to fix it, what it has done is improved the cables themselves. After they’ve formed around the ears they go from plastic sheathing to Cordura, a nicely tactile fibre that not only looks classier but is tougher and resists tangling. If you’re a person who winds the cable tightly and stuffs it in your bag or pocket this is the one for you.”
