I know prices vary by region. I have gotten good sound from the Earfun earbuds. I have the Earfun Air, and the Earfun Air Pro 2 have very good sound as do Earfun Free Pro 2.
The HiFiMan Arya are open-back, planar magnetic headphones designed with fans of neutral sound in mind. They have a very neutral, though slightly bright sound profile and thanks to their open-back design, their soundstage is perceived as wide and spacious. They're also very comfortable and have a great build quality. That said, they won't be the best choice if you're looking for a pair of versatile headphones, since they leak a lot of audio and don't block out ambient noise
From the shipping process to receiving. Received headphones 2 days in advanced. I was currently in the market for a pair of new headphones when these came on my radar and have been throughly impressed. I do work in construction and the headphones are really durable and so is the charging case
I paired it with a little dot amp and called it a day for the next 10 years. I use it for music, gaming, movies, and brought it with me when I moved overseas. Somehow I just enjoyed the sound and never looked elsewhere.
Volume however is no problem, they can crank the dB's. Passive noise cancelation is decent when the ear pieces are fit snug although talking with one or both in my ears (when audio off) produces a reverberating echo in that ear(s). Touch control is about 80% successful for me, usually not registering one of my taps. Auto-pause/play on removal/insertion is about 50/50 although I'm working on making sure I'm "doing it right" as you have to snug it in and give it a twist although sometimes it works by just taking it out and putting it in
Hifiman Arya. The 270 degree swivel design, metal headband and large cups makes for very comfortable headphones.
