Headphones, Headphones, Headphones

Woman with Focal Spirit One and SmartphoneHere at The Audio Consultant we only stock two primary brands of headphones.

‘Why’ you may ask? Well we believe these headphones are quite simply outstanding and among the very best available; not only are they stunning sounding, but they look fantastic and are incredibly good value as well.

They truly are the best choice available in the entire AV world. When you visit The Audio Consultant you won’t be overwhelmed by a wall of literally hundreds of headphone products, no whacky or weird designs, no sub-standard audio designs that look cool and chic but leave you feeling flat, no dozens of models with near identical specifications to try and wade through.

Just peace of mind and the best sounding cans around! And that includes one of the best pro-audio designs around too, that’s used in studios all around the world.

In-Ear

In-Ear Headphones are great for travel, exercise, and other activity when you want a minimalist approach – but you also don’t want to sacrifice sound quality just because they are in-ear’ designs.

As a result we recommenced the following Musical Fidelity products, that benefit from Musical Fidelity’s decades at the forefront of hi-fi musical reproduction design:

Musical Fidelity EB-33

Musical Fidelity EB-33 In-Ear HeadphonesThe EB-33s are ergonomically designed to fit comfortably and easily in the ear canal.

Their drive units were designed from the ground up to give a wide and flat frequency response with low distortion and they include nine sets of ear tips to help the music lover get a comfortable fit with a perfect acoustic seal. The EB-33s are made from high quality, earth friendly materials, and are the perfect in-ear headphone for everyday use.

They feature a 3.5mm plug with in-line microphone/mute/answer control on the cable.

Musical Fidelity EB-50

Musical Fidelity EB-50The EB-50 is a superb In-Ear Headphone set for discerning music lovers.

Crucial to the design of the EB-50 is its ruler-flat frequency response, excellent dynamic range and a deep, clear and fast bass. Ultimately, no matter what music is played through them, EB-50 will faithfully reproduce music as the artist intended, with a dynamic and inertia-free performance. Military-grade aluminium for the outer casing offers a strong yet anti-resonance body – strong and durable without sacrificing sound.

They feature a 3.5mm gold plated stereo jack plug and a in-line microphone/mute/answer control on the cable. Seven pairs of ear tips are included for personal preference and a fixed fitting for a tighter ‘fit to the ear’ option, as well as a carry pouch for safe transportation. These are the ultimate in In-Ear Headphone design.

Over-Ear

Musical Fidelity MF100 HeadphonesOver-Ear Headphones offer a much greater variety of options and in some cases enhanced audio performance.

They also provide options for styles that sit ‘on-ear’ or fully ‘over-ear’ (encasing the whole ear), and can be fully enclosed or open-backed (note the latter means people nearby can hear what you are listening).

Musical Fidelity MF-100

The MF-100’s give a completely natural, stress free sound so you can hear exactly what the artist intended to create, and give a flat and wide frequency response with low distortion.

The MF-100’s ear pads are a subtle combination of fine materials and refined design. The leather ear pads are designed for maximum comfort (a spare pair of extra comfortable Alcantara pads are included). They are fully enclosed so won’t disturb anyone around you when you are listening.

They feature a 3.5mm jack (with optional ¼” Adapter), in-line microphone/mute/answer control on the cable, and carry pouch.

Focal Spirit Professional

Focal Spirit ProfessionalSpirit Professional is a closed back, circum-aural, professional audio design – used in many recording studios and by many performing artists around the world.
