This is Edifier’s best offering when it comes to their headphone line-up. Premium looking with PU leather and metal alloy headbands. Let start with the earcups, it’s wide enough to fit my entire ear (over the ear headphone btw) as the opening is 4 cm wide, 6 cm tall with a 2 cm thick earpads. It is very comfortable to wear even after 4 hour + of usage, you barely feel it is there after awhile. Sound isolation is good, you can hear people talk nearby but is mostly silenced.

Earcups and headband pressure is very good, just at the sweet spot. If you shake your head vigorously there is no chance the headphone will come off. The headbands are made out of metal alloy, you can extend each side up to 3cm for bigger head size. You can bend it outwards or twist the headband (check our video review to see how we torture it) and it won’t break, is built tough for rough people. The 2 tone headband PU leather is nice to touch little padding but pose no discomfort.

The right side of the headphones house the controls for volume, media playback and calls. The buttons are tactile based. You can use NFC to pair to your device fast and effortlessly. On the bottom you can see the power slider and 3.5mm input jack. Package comes included with the 1.3 meter long 3.5mm male to male cable (to go old school wired), micro USB cable for charging and a hard carrying case for travels.

Headphones are power with a 40mm dynamic driver.  It uses Bluetooth 4.1 and the rated range is 10 meter, from my test it can go 16 meters line of sight before signal degradation happens. If you have Qualcomm based Android device it supports aptX as well.

Fluffy earpads

Audio quality

Pop/EDM:

Pia Mia – Do It Again
– Bass is superb does not eat into the vocals, very clear separation between the two.
– Bass is well bodied, highly energetic (air pressure) you can feel it booming with that subtle bass vibrtions.

Tiaan – Be Ok
– The low bass frequency is amazing you can feel the pressure with zero distortion.
– The low bass has right amount of energy, feels full (body), fade smoothly.
– You can hear the snare effect as the bass fades, which is rare.

Vocals/Instrumentals:

Ed Sheeran – Touch and Go
– Guitar chords is sharp and precise. You can heard each guitar chord vibrating and how it fades well.
– Vocals is clear and is not anyway muffled.

Violinder – Raindrops
– Violin has the right amount of shine at the hi frequency but of warm sounding type (I prefer the ultra sharp crystal clear type).
– Bass/drum doesn’t overpower the Piano/Violin tone, good indication of a balance headphones. Violin/Piano slightly louder than the drum which is good.
