Since the last post, my excitement to try these luxurious set of headphones has grown. At first glance the box looks similar to that of similar headsets, but the styling of the headphones separate itself from the rest. When opening the box the first thing you notice is the craftsmanship on the headset. The chrome styling and accents set it off. The leather and earpiece cushion feel good against the ear to the point you don’t want to take them off.

Audio Quality

I wanted to start off with quality because I feel this is one of the more important features. I used Action Bronson’s “Triple Backflip” because of the clean bass & melodious tones. These headphones excel! The sound is so clear you would think it was in-studio…..live. It may sound exaggerated but they really do sound good. Compared to the Monster Beats by Dre Pro models, the sound is very similar but at a cheaper price so a better purchase. In my opinion.

The lows are heavy and the highs are really HD. The ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) feature really shines because it keeps everything outside of the earcup well, out. The Bass feature provides thick bass for those musical tones that demand it. All with a easy to find switch on the Right labeled earcup. The battery compartment is found easily being the “A” logo and will work easily without batteries using the “Audio” feature. All in all I was very satisfied with the sound and I think I will retire my old ones indefinitely.

Tested the phone audio as well and it too was clear and sound. The mic picks a lot of sound without having to move it closer to your mouth. Using the ANC, it knocked out the television background noise and my girlfriend’s smoothie making blender. Haven’t had a chance to test these out in the gym but I’m sure they would pass with flying colors.

 

Build Quality

The design and build grade on this is excellent. Just enough chrome for bling factor and comfort where it’s important. They did not skip on opulence and material so not only does it look very elegant, it feels strong and durable. They included a microfiber cloth to make sure they still shine after use. All movable pieces budge without much effort so it folds easily and the 3-stage switch is simple to maneuver.

Comes with a crocodile skin traveling case that looks and feels awesome. Hardened edges that will obviously protect it from a short fall. The case itself has a small pouch to hold the cables, spare batteries, cloth & warranty card. _MG_0093 copy

At close glance the casing quality is so awesome you would want to use it as small luggage.

I know earlier I mentioned using this in the gym, but I’m sure it can take a beating. Don’t let the shiny accents fool you, this thing feels a lot better than say the “other guys” So don’t feel scared to use it. Keep in mind you can use the earphones version if you would like a lighter version. The head hauncho of FKB had the opportunity to test them (earphone) out and he gives it a A+. I can’t give a review on those, but if the headphones reflect on what the company set out to do they should rate about the same. Excellent.

My Final Conclusion

These are a must buy and great alternative to what’s already on the market. It’s priced competitively and you get more bang for your buck in my opinion. The sound & structure all come together very nicely. I do wish that there was a wireless feature to use with Bluetooth but it did not deter me from enjoying everything else. I do hope A Audio continues to do what got them this far. But I’m really looking forward to seeing what they will release next!
