A-Audio Legacy Elite HD Headphones Review
Among the many cool people that I got to meet at CE Week 2014 in NYC earlier this summer was Christian Iacovelli, who was in town to promote his company, A-Audio. He and his team were kind enough to send me a sample of the new A-Audio Legacy headphones, and I’ve had a few weeks to put these through their paces.
If you haven’t heard of A-Audio, it’s not too surprising. The company seems to be only a little over a year old, so they’re not exactly a household name just yet. But they’re beginning to attract a lot of attention, and, in fact, the A-Audio Legacy headphones won a “Best in Show” Award at CE Week.[…]
After spending a few weeks with these headphones, the only fault I can find with them is that they are, as the package states, “Made for iPod /iPhone / iPad”. Of course, the audio technology is fully compatible with any modern audio devices. It’s only the control switch on the microphone cable which has compatibility issues. Sadly, I got no results from any of the controls on either an Android device or a PC.
But this seems a tiny concern, as the A-Audio Legacy Headphones otherwise provide a thoroughly exquisite user experience. The company’s mission statement says that “A-Audio crafts headphones that embody avant-garde design, provide uncompromised comfort and deliver unparalleled sound.” I’ll say that they’ve succeeded. I’ve never used a better set of headphones.
