Locally designed and engineered in Perth, the Audiofly's new MK2 range consists of four new offerings that embrace the company's heritage in designing pro-musician stage and recording headphones, improving on the first-generation range through upgraded specs, updated designs and additional colour options.
The new MK2 range serves up what is billed as "the signature Audiofly sound quality, handy microphone and volume controls and tough CORDURA fibre technology" (on the AF45W, AF56W and AF100W models) delivering "tangle resistance and added durability".
We're told the range will "also deliver improvements in battery life, water resistance levels and Bluetooth functionality while its premium models, AF56W and AF100W, also feature the introduction of touch-cradle charging abilities".
“Receiving a number of accolades in recent months and seeing how well-received our debut range was locally and internationally, we’ve implemented the consumer feedback into this new range and are excited to provide music lovers with an even better listening experience!”
Audiofly also reports having refreshed its branding to further embrace its Australian heritage, with the new headphone designs and product packaging "incorporating more Australian tones, with a fresh air, open space inspired look and feel".
Founded in 2012, Audiofly reminds us that it is "best known for its heritage in designing pro-musician stage and recording headphones which deliver a superior listening experience. Since releasing its first wireless Bluetooth range mid last year, the Aussie brand has also expanded its reach off-shore, showcasing its range in China, the US and Japan earlier this year".
