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.
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.
Now onto the most important part of a headphones review. The sound. It’s one of the reasons why this is my favorite pair of headphones right now. The sound is fantastic here. There’s also three modes (which only work when you have working batteries in them). Those include Bass, ANC and Audio. So you can choose between extra bass, active noise cancellation or just audio. The sound is great, nice and full. And when you turn up the volume, the sound doesn’t get distorted, which I’ve had that issue on some other headphones, but mostly on speakers.
Overall, I really like the A-Audio Legacy headphones. Now they are a bit pricey. Right now they are going for about $299. But I will say, I think they are worth every penny. You can grab them in matte phantom (that’s what I have) or black liquid. We have links to both on Amazon down below.
