Featured Review: A-Audio Legacy Headphones

Published on February 2, 2015 by

A-Audio is a brand that I hadn’t actually heard of until recently. They sent me their Legacy headphones a few weeks ago to take a look at. And I’ve been using them ever since. I’ve used them for listening to music, doing our weekly podcast, and doing hangouts with other staff members. Not to mention the usual watching movies and videos on YouTube. They are amazing headphones. Before this, I was a huge Bose fan. Loved their headphones and earbuds. But now I may have to rethink that, as the A-Audio Legacy are now my favorite.

Featured Review: A-Audio Legacy Headphones

The A-Audio Legacy headphones look very heavy, but in all honesty, they are actually pretty lightweight, which is always a good thing. Especially when you are wearing them all day long. Additionally they are very comfy to wear. There is extra padding on them. Both for your ear and for the top of your head. They are also made of leather and metal, which look oh so good.


They are noise cancelling headphones, but you will need a couple of AAA batteries for that. The noise cancellation is actually really good on these. Additionally, it comes with two cables One has a mic and one without. I use the mic cable since I need the mic for Hangouts on Air, but it’s nice that you can switch between the two. Additionally, you can switch ears. Have it plugged in on the left or the right. A-Audio gives you a nice carrying case for these as well, which you can see in the photo gallery down below.

About a year ago I received a pair of the A-Audio Legacy over-ear, noise canceling headphones. The truth is I found them fairly good sounding in the non-bass enhancing modes. But my, these headphones are, to my eyes, extraordinarily gaudy. At the time, I just couldn’t bring my review them.

That was poor logic on my part. Taste is an individual matter, and while the look of these cans got in my way, others might certainly like the design. Who am I to discriminate—at least too heavily—based on the look of a headphone. It’s fine for me to comment, of course, but my job is really about sound quality at a fundamental level, and since these cans did sound pretty good, well, I kinda missed the boat. And I apologized to Christian Iacovelli, President of A-Audio, for my short sightedness.
