A Quick Look
The AF45 White Knight, second in Audiofly’s signature collection of high-quality earbuds, delivers superb sound quality and construction for its price. A tangle-free Audioflex™ cable, means that wrapping your headphones up to store them in the handily provided carrying case won’t result in a five minute fight to get them unwrapped and ready to use again (an issue I’m sure many are familiar with from cheaper headphones). Solid yet lightweight construction makes them strong enough to cart around wherever you go while staying so light sometimes you can forget they’re even there, but for the crisp and beautiful sound.
What We Liked
Of the earbuds I have used to date (a collection I probably couldn’t even begin to list) the AF45 White Knight delivers by far the best sound quality and comfort for their price. Ready to use straight out of the box, these headphones showcase Audiofly’s signature “old-school attention to detail”; they have truly left nothing out.
First, sound quality: A custom voiced 11mm driver, chosen specifically for the design of the AF45, produces crisp sound across the entire sound spectrum. Producing crisp high notes, solid, ground-shaking bass, and fully voiced midrange, the driver replicates music as it is meant to be; felt, not heard. In my previous experiences with headphones, I have run into many different pairs which, while serviceable, do not do the music full justice, as they fail to capture the necessary frequencies. This AF45 is on a completely new level. More than any other earbuds I have used, they capture the music in full.
Second, looks: From Audiofly’s custom cables to the unique branding and solid construction, the AF45 has created a look all of it’s own. Pure and simple colors contrast to make them both distinctive and alluring, from both afar and close up. The carrying case provided in the package is simple, effective, and sleek, easily holding the earbuds in a small and tangle-free enclosure, perfect for travel.
Third, comfort: While it took a few days of wearing the earbuds to adjust to their design, a significant change from my last pair of regular earbuds, they really are quite comfortable. The first few days, I have to admit, they were less comfortable than I would have liked, but, having worn them daily for more than two weeks at this point, I can safely say that they are quite comfortable, not only for short periods but also for longer durations as well. Even after continuous use for hours I can easily forget that they are even there.
What We Didn’t Like
The only downside to the AF45 White Knight was that for the first two to three days of regular use they were slightly uncomfortable as my ears adjusted from my previous earbuds. Past that I truly have no complaints at all; they are excellent.
If you’re looking for a pair of stylish, well priced, comfortable, easy to store earbuds with great sound quality, the Audiofly AF45 is an excellent purchase.
