Premium earphones from AudioFly. Original price £169.99. Good reviews. Seems like a good deal. Used them for few days and must say they sound amazing for the price. I prefer AF78 to my Sony XBA-H1 which feature same dual driver design (balanced armature + dynamic driver). Mine was AF78 model without microphone, not the one on photo AF78M.

Great price for these though recommend to wear these hooked around ear as the sound of wire microphonics is very bad if worn straight down.

Good review here.


Not sure that is a "good" review. Style over substance is what i read from it.

Em, they are discounted way below their RPP. Hence good value, so who cares tat they were more style over substance at 170£!
Gone for a pair. These will be replacing my 'well loved' Soundmagic E10's, so I hope they live up to the hype. Cheers OP....

Em, earphones that sounded rubbish at £170 will still sound rubbish at £40. Or even £1.

Mate, everything is reviewed against their price and they are give mediocre sound at 170£. However, at 40£ they are suppose to be great. If you need "not rubbish sound", then go and get shure se846 for 750-800£ 😄

Price and quality are not necessarily related, and these are a clear example of that.

Just as, for you anyway, quotation marks don't indicate a quote.

The market loves people like you, you buy up all the crap that wealthier people didn't fall for in the first place.

Enjoy.

I partly agree that price doesn't necessary is related with quality. But good luck finding earphones for 40£ that sound like 700£ ones. I work in engineering company and I know that prices of cheaper products are lower due to use of less advanced and cheaper solutions, materials and etc. Hence the performance of lower end products is lower. So, you statement doesn't work when you compare products in completely different leagues.

P. S. got these headphones. For 40£ they are great, and as said they start to show distortions only at very high volumes, at which you should never ever listen. Tested on Ibasso dx90 and compared with Sony MDR-EX650AP (40-50£ price range). I audio have B&O H6, V-MODA LP2, Senheiser Urbanite, AKG Q701, so I have stuff to which I can compare them.

It's easy to overdrive AF78 because of their low resistance (16 ohms only) and high sensitivity (108dB). In comparison for instance Sony MDR-EX650 32ohms, 105dB. Audiofly sound loudest compared to any other earphones I've got.

As a final comment on this, your opinion has been completely swayed by the fact that they were originally priced up at £170. Throwing a lot of other products and statements around where you work into the mix in no way supports the preposition that if you reduce the price of an item it will sound better. Especially when only one of the mentioned products is a roughly equivalent item: comparing in-ears to a group of on/over ear cans makes no sense whatsoever.

It's a marketing man's dream. Especially in a market like 'phones: make them look the part and heavily overprice them and hope to sell a few. Just a heavily discount them and hope to sell the rest.

And my statement works perfectly well in any situation where the consumer can't actually see what's inside the product. Such as some 40p a pair drivers. Or can't tell what the detrimental effect of poor cable choice will until they are actually out and about wearing them.

Anyway, as with everything else on this site, you get to spend your own money as you please. As long as you are happy that's all that matters in the end.

Mate, Sony earphones are in-ear ones, don't mix with Sony mdx 650. I have no idea why your hate this earphones, but they are really good. I would not have paid 170£for them for sure, but for 40£ they are amazing. And well, so what that drivers are 40p? Actual physical parts of every poroduct are not that expensive, most of cost come from R&D, design/engineering, royalties and marketing combined.
