Audiofly AF240 Over The Ear Headphones Review

Audiofly is a company based out of Australia with a growing reputation for quality headphones. We have reviewed several of their in ear models, but none of their over the ear models. So Audiofly AF240 is the first for us. It’s a standard closed back corded design.  With an MSRP of $249 they are very well priced.

Features and specs:
Driver type: 40mm single membrane neodymium driver 
Frequency range: 20-20 kHz 
Sensitivity: 103dB at 1 kHz 
Impedance: 16 Ohms
Cable length: 1.5m/60"
Plug type: 3.5mm gold plated straight jack

The Audiofly AF240 came in a nice looking color printed box with photos and specs of the headphone. Opening the box revealed a well protected product held in custom molding. Materials used in the construction was mostly plastic, with some metal and leather. Quality of materials used was good, as was the fit and finish. I loved the design using a detachable cable. And the cable was the very high quality cloth wrapped cable that Audiofly is known for.  Also included was a cloth bag and owners manual.  Now let's hear how they sound.

Why the People Like That – Vocals were natural and smooth, bass had nice low end extension and authority. Percussion was sufficiently crisp with good resolution. Harmonica was dynamic.  Rhapsody in Blue – Clarinet was nice and smooth with good timbre. Brass was smooth without being to brassy. Piano sounded natural. Bassoon had nice low end extension into the midbass. Flute had good air. They threw a nice sized sound stage, with good imaging.  Earth Wind and Fire: Let’s Groove – Vocals were nice and smooth with good texture. Bass had nice low end extension and impact. Bass was crisp and clean. Katy Perry: Dark Horse – Bass had ok depth, with ok impact and authority. Vocals were smooth with really good texture and timbre.

Audiofly makes a great headphone, and the tradition continues with the AF240.  Based on their design, features, quality, and performance, they have earned our Recommended Award.  They do give a good value.  For more info and complete specs, checkout their website at
