Audiofly, makers of audiophile-grade in-ear monitors and earphones, debuted a new type of product on Thursday. The AF240, which is available today, is the company’s first-ever over-ear headphone. Audiofly first announced its AF240 model at CES 2015 last year, and said they were engineered “for the passionate listener who craves rich, detailed sound.”
“The AF240s were designed with an honesty that reflects the sound stage we as musicians aspire to–we’re excited to finally share them with everyone,” Audiofly CEO Dave Thompson said in a statement. “We at Audiofly understand just how important the fit and feel of a good headphone is, and we knew we had to ensure our over-ears never compromised comfort or performance.”
Audiofly explained that the AF240s are constructed with a polycarbonate body and alloy arms for a lightweight feel, and are designed with a self-adjusting headband and memory foam ear cups to offer “ultimate comfort.” The construction also allows for a custom fit that isolates up to 20dB of outside noise without compromising the sound, Audiofly said.
