Audiofly AF56M

Audiofly nearly perfectly combined the best traits of their budget options with those of the premium model. All the AF56m really need is a better set of tips and you have one of the best audio experiences in this price range.

You only have to look to the Award-winning AKG Y50s to find a more comfortable fit and far more engaging, dynamic and stunningly subtle performance. Which makes the Y40s’ unbalanced presentation all the more puzzling. The punchy, agile rhythms are...

Grado RS2e

Combined with a tube headphone amplifier, you've got sound as silky, and even more musical than live. Supplement this listening experience with a slightly salted Miller Lite.
