We at pnosker.com have reviewed hundreds of consumer electronics products over the last 5+ years. Many of the products we review have been awarded high star ratings; this is not a reflection of inflated ratings, but instead a testament to the quality of products we receive for review. Despite this fact, we reserve our perfect score – 5 stars – for only the truly game-changing and innovative products that rarely reach our mailing addresses. The A-Audio Legacy over-ear active noise cancellation (ANC) headphones are fully deserving of our perfect 5 star rating, and below are our reasons why.
I was able to sample the Legacy over-ear (ANC) headphones over the last several weeks, and they are one of the most comfortable headphones that I have ever owned. I took the Legacy headphones with me on vacation, safely transported in a neat hard leather travel case that is included with the set. Even after five hours of continuous use my ears still felt amazing. It was like wearing two small comfortable memory foam hoodies on my ears. Not only do the Legacy headphones look cool and feel great, the sound quality was excellent, which consumers typically expect to sacrifice for a set of headphones certainly not sacrificed for aesthetic. Thankfully for design-oriented audiophiles, A-Audio is atypical. The Legacy headphones are designed with stylish chrome pieces with the A-Audio logo prominent on both sides. Subtle cross-stitch padding covers the entire headband. These headphones truly match the company’s “avant garde design” intention.
