AF78
Flagship of the Audiofly range, the dual driver AF78 features a balanced armature device, usually found in professional earpieces, and a 9mm custom dynamic driver. The combination draws on the strengths of two drivers to produce amazing separation across the frequency range and delivering beautiful high end detail and well-defined response in the lower and mid frequencies. Listeners can experience music in comfort via the included four sets of silicon ear tips, and two sets of Comply™ foam tips.

The AF78, AF56 and AF45 models all feature the Audioflex™ tangle free, braided round cable made with CORDURA® fabric to provide exceptional strength and abrasion resistance. Created with a classic look, they are also rugged, with Kevlar® reinforcing in each conductor for superior strength and abrasion resistance.

All models are available with Clear-Talk™. Audiofly separated the microphone from the mechanics of the button for better voice transmission during conversations. To prevent outside interference with the game, all models include a noise isolating in-ear design for up to 23db noise attenuation. Audiofly in-ear headphones are available in styles with or without a microphone and feature a gold plated connection.
