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.

Our Conclusion

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.

  1. I could use some good ear buds, mine don’t stay in my ears… useless.

  2. Kiernan says:

    Well, if that’s your major concern I can safely say that these are excellent at staying in place. That’s been a big concern of mine in the past, but these are some of the first earbuds I’ve ever had that can manage to stay solidly in place. Definitely a solid purchase for the price, these are the nicest earbuds I’ve acquired to date.

  3. Nichol says:

    I can’t wear earbuds or haven’t found a pair I can wear yet. My ears are so tiny so they fall right out. I do like the looks of these though.

  4. Tammilee says:

    These sound fantastic. I am looking for a new set of earbuds to travel with. I like that they fit comfortably

  5. Kay Maher says:

    The only really comfy headphones I’ve found are my HandCandy headphones. I’ll definitely have to try these. Now if someone would invent a way to keep my kids from taking them….

  6. I use the standard apple earbuds all the time. The only thing I really love about them is that the cord never gets tangled. Otherwise by the end of my morning train commute, my ears are really hurting. I’m definitely up for a new pair so I may look into these. Thanks!

    1. Kiernan says:

      As someone who’s spent a good deal of time with standard apple earbuds, I can safely say these are far more comfortable in pretty much every way. They are more lightweight, fit my ears better, and are far less likely to get tangled (that’s one of my biggest complaints with apple’s stock earbuds is that they take ages to untangle when they come out of my pocket). Plus, when it comes to sound quality, there’s no comparison, switching to these after using apple earbuds for travel is a game-changing move.

  7. Cat Davis says:

    Those are neat. I’m not sure they’d work with my ears though. I have a really tiny ear canal and have to get kid sized ear buds.

  8. Mandi says:

    I don’t wear earbuds often, unless I’m on the treadmill or outside on a walk, but they HAVE to be comfortable. If they start to hurt, I’m done.

    1. Kiernan says:

      If you’re mainly using earbuds for the treadmill or for taking walks, you might be interested in looking into a pair of bluetooth earbuds, I got a pair in recently that I’m testing out and I quite like them. I’d never thought of bluetooth earbuds before, to be honest, but now that I’m using them I quite like them. Can’t say they are the most stylish headphones you’ll ever own, but they’re comfortable, have superb battery life, are quite lightweight, and eliminate all the hassle with cords for when you’re on the move. I’ll be reviewing them and posting it around in the next few weeks, if you’re interested please stop by.

  9. Mine hurt my ears and so I’m looking for an alternative. I may just have to give these a try because about 20 minutes into a movie, I’m already in pain as it is now.

  10. Digna D. says:

    I really need a new pair of buds. There are so many choices on the market, it is great to read these reviews before deciding to make a purchase. Thank for sharing your experience with AudioFly.

  11. I have been wearing my earbuds a lot more lately and noticing how much they bother me. I need to check these out!

  12. trisha says:

    Those are really pretty too! I love getting high quality sound!

  13. robyn says:

    Wonder how these would work for littles? Both boys need some new earbuds.

    1. Kiernan says:

      I think they definitely could, but I think the headphones you get depends on the age of the children in question. For adolescents, I think these are excellent, for younger children I would recommend the Skunk Juice FG-2 Earbuds, you get two pairs for the price of one, they’re durable, and they have a magnetic connector built into the cable so if you accidentally walk off while they’re still plugged in it just pulls apart and doesn’t damage anything.

  14. i wish i could find earbuds that fit right in my ears, these might be a contender

  15. Kerri says:

    My husband is always losing his so it’s good to know a quality brand for when it is time to purchase another pair. Thanks for the review!

  16. Do these come with a mic too?
    That’s one of the reasons I keep my Apple earbuds around!

    1. Scott says:

      I don’t believe they do, but I did discover something on accident the other day while listening to music on my iPhone.

      I received a FaceTime call and didn’t pull out the earbuds to talk. The regular mic on the phone still worked just fine and I was able to talk via FaceTime with the earbuds still in place.

    2. Kiernan says:

      Unfortunately, this pair does not come with a mic, but there is a version of the Audiofly AF45 with a built in microphone, which will only set you back slightly more. I can’t attest to their functionality when it comes to the microphone, but given my experience with Audiofly I would highly recommend their products.

  17. Beth says:

    I use earbuds a lot at work and they can hurt after awhile. It is great to see an option you found comfortable after a few days of adjustment!

  18. Nikki says:

    I need a new set of headphones. I like to listen to music when I cook, clean, work, etc.

    1. Kiernan says:

      If you’re looking for headphones that are excellent for moving around, I would personally suggest checking out some wireless earbuds. Having only recently acquired a pair myself, I find they are comfortable, lightweight, hassle free when it comes to cords, have great battery life, and more. I’ll be posting a review up in the next few weeks, if you’re interested, but if you’d like to look around on your own I can suggest the Avantree Sacool earbuds, they are excellent.

  19. Shell Feis says:

    My ears are too small for most earbuds but I wonder if these would work because they look really nice!

  20. Tom says:

    I’ve not seen these before – they look great!
    I’m increasingly becoming a fan of simpler earphones – less is more in my book. These certainly tick that box – I be they sound fantastic as well!

  21. Micaya says:

    I need a pair of new earbud and these just might be my next purchase.
