Just because you may be north of the equator, that doesn’t mean you’re more knowledgeable or have better taste in the world of audio. Case in point: Audiofly. These chaps from down under (that would be Australia) have been cranking out reasonable priced, yet highly regarded earphones for a few years. Now Audiofly is reaching for the stratosphere with their audiophile Performance Series in-ear monitors. These monitors are geared towards professional and amateur musicians as well as music lovers.

The AF120 and AF140 monitors both use balanced armatures paired with dynamic speakers: one of each for the AF120 and 2 armatures plus one dynamic speaker for the AF140. This hybrid approach results in a warmer, more friendly sound with added accuracy in the middle and treble frequencies. If greater accuracy is desired, the AF160 sports 3 armature speakers. Each armature covers the low, mid and high frequencies equally delivering balanced, yet listener-friendly audio. Finally, if uncompromising accuracy is needed, the AF180 takes it a step further by adding a fourth armature speaker. This results in a realism for those who demand accuracy, speed and clarity above all else.

All Performance Series monitors include many tips, both silicone and Comply foam, a 1/4” jack and airline adaptor plus a unique leather “storage wallet” with space for spare tips and accessories.

The Performance Series in-ear monitors are available directly from Audiofly now. The AF120 retails for $249.95; the AF140 for $349.95; the AF160 for $449.95 and the AF180 for $549.95. The web site lists only Australian prices, but Audiofly assures me that the AUD prices match US prices dollar for dollar regardless of the current exchange rate.

    These look top notch. I’m always on the search for the perfect headphones. I purchased a set of Audiofly 45 Series on sale on Amazon. While not quite the sound you’ll get from an In-Ear Monitor, they are top quality and far surpass the Bang & Olufsen A8’s I’ve been using for years. I may modify the A8’s to improve sound some, but for now I’m impressed with the Audiofly product.
