Audeara A-01 Bluetooth Wireless Over Ear Headphones : Prescription headphones? Almost

1st impressions when you open the box, its a decent package, nicely contained in a carry case for the headphones which is good for travelling and contains a bunch of peripherals such as jack cable to hard wire the headphones if you prefer to avoid bluetooth, mini jack to quarter inch adaptor, air plane adaptor and a carabiner clip (no idea what for)the headphones feel quite light and when you have a good feel its easy to see why. The band is metal and the bar is cushioned, likewise the ears are also well cushioned, however the ears feel like bacolite plastic, they don’t feel overly brittle and i reckon they could stand up to some punishment but still feels a little cheap. On the head they are snug, very comfortable on the ears and top of the head, not a lot of extension in the top bar but these will sit on your head very comfortably for a decent time. Buttons are small and tricky to pin point but i reckon with some use you will easily figure that out. There are very clear l and r signs on the inside of the cans so you dont forget as that turns out to be very important after the next stage. Pairing is straight forwards, download the audeara app from the app store and then the fun (or not) begins. The principal is that we all hear differently based on physiology, damage to ears, sensitivies and personal preference. Rather than engineer individual headphones the audeara app is designed to profile your unique hearing charecteristics and then tailor the sound in the headphones accordingly. This is done through one of 3 tests (quick to long depending on how much time and personalisation you want) which plays a series of beeps at different frequencies that you then take down as low as you can on each ear then set your own profile. This is a slow process and you need to do it in a very quiet room so make yourself comfy, i found the process quite enlightening and you can see the areas where you have lost some frequency capability.

I love headphones (as opposed to earphones) so much that my family nickname me ‘long haul’ when i’m watching/listening on my laptop. These are quality headphones and as well as having great quality sound the active noise cancelling works a treatthey come with a small instruction leaflet (no chunky manual in 10 different languages) which has clear instructions in english with labelled diagrams that explain:* how to download the app and pair it with your device* how to personalise the headphones to create your own hearing profile* how to charge the batterythe ear cushions are really comfy and pack away neatly into the carry case for travel/transporting. There are controls on the ear cushion surrounds but to be honest i’ve only used these for testing purposes. A classy looking, good quality earphone set.

I’ve never used a set of headphones like this before; they are classed as ‘audiophile’ quality, and require a lot of effort to setup properly. These are designed to be customized and calibrated for each ear by the user, like getting prescription glasses. This is self-contained within the box, you don’t need any external devices except, of course, access to the audeara app – so a smartphone or tablet is required. When i first tried them on they didn’t sound good at all, dull with no detail. After calibration and setting up my first profile the difference was amazing. You are actually able to tune the headphones to account for differences in hearing from each ear; as someone who has mild tinnitus-based loss in one ear, this was the first time i had heard music ‘properly’ in about five years. To be specific, radiohead now sounded like it used to, nothing was missing. I ended up with three main profiles; classical, rock, and spoken word. The headphones themselves have a limited bass clarity, and it slightly overpowers the middle and you can’t really adjust for it. It’s not serious, but noticeable in certain music.

Finding it really hard to find anything negative to say about these fabulous headphones as they really are superb. Sound quality is faultless and i have tried them with rock, acoustic and classical music, as well as spoken word and each time has been great. They are really comfy to wear even for long periods and the noise cancelling is wonderful. For example, i wore them for nearly three hours listening to an audiobook while next door had builders in and were ripping up the floor in the adjoining room. Battery life is also amazing as they rarely need charging up so you easily use them for hours and hours and not experience any drop in performance. The price tag is a bit hefty but these are a one off buy and if you want quality it rarely comed cheaply.

Never experienced a headset like it, tailored exactly to your hearing needs. You will never have heard your favorite songs so purely. I’ve used these at home, travelling and even at work and they never fault. Battery power seems to be never ending and the accessories are good quality. Worth every hard earned penny.

They are supplied with various bits and pieces inc the usb charging cable and connectors so they can be used attached to an amp. However, they work best using bluetooth. They connected very easily to both and iphone and imac. Walking about with the headsets on i found there was no signal degradation until i was some 15′ from the source, of course this will vary but is more than enough for my needs :-)before use you will need to download the audera app, ios and android. Once opened you will need to set up an account with audera which is confirmed once you reply to an email they send. Put the h/phones on, start the app and follow the instructions to ‘tune’ them to your ears. This takes about 10 mins and seems well worth the time. I have compared them to several in-ear bud, and a pair of bose noise cancelling over ear ones i have. For me both the bass and the mid tones sound clearer and cleaner.

I have tried a multitude of headphones over the years everything from jvc, some wonderful high-end panasonic’s, several sennheiser’s, grado and everything in-between for the vine programme. I tested a few years ago a set of hd sennheiser’s which retailed for over £400 at the time of review and last month a pair of £300 sony hd headphones which were superlative. For my money, grado makes the very best headphones in terms of sound versus cost versus customer service. Their after sales service is world class. This assessment may change after using these beauties. I cannot give any advice on the customer service of audeara, but i can tell you, once these headphones are set up properly, the sound they produce is world class and i really do mean this. I have tested 3 high-end sets for vine and this is the best sounding pair. I will put one caveat to this statement, they are the best sounding pair of headphones i have tested, but they are not the best pair of anc headphones i have listened to. I still think sony 100’s and bose make better anc’s, if all you want is to block noise. For me, these are incredible headphones with anc, rather than anc headphones with good sound.

Wownow i don’t normally write reviews, but i really felt i needed too…to hopefully help others regarding this amazing headset. I’ve been trying to do my research on headphones that offer better clarity for some time now. Had made up my mind to actually purchase a competitor product, until i read a review article on one of my news apps. This headset had managed to get a near perfect review marking on this well-known app, i immediately searched for more info and more reviews. To my surprise, there are quite a few articles available on this product and all with positive reviews, also says on their website that its designed by doctors, a big plus in my books. However the only place i could find to buy this product was at amazon (not that i’m complaining)…well done amazon. Came well packaged and on time with no delivery issues. Box contents are as described on amazon, however, was really pleased that they have included an airplane headphone adaptor (not listed). Headphones are well constructed and feel comfortable, without too much pressure on ears. An app is needed for initial setup, but this is straight forward to download (i use an iphone, an android version is also available).

Audeara A-01 Bluetooth Wireless Over Ear Headphones with Personalised Sound, Foldable Design, Built-in Mic & 65 Hour Battery

Product Description, * Winner of the Australian Good Design Awards 2018.
The Audeara A-01 over ear noise cancelling headphones with Bluetooth feature an innovative built-in hearing test that allows you to calibrate your headphones using an app, for the perfect sound, always. These wireless headphones have an incredible 65-hour battery life, so you won’t have to charge them every day. The active noise cancelling means you can turn it on when you want an immersive listening experience; or turn it off when you want to listen out for announcements, traffic or other outside sounds.
HOW ARE THEY UNIQUE Our innovative technology tests your hearing and personalises your favourite music perfectly for you, enhancing your experience through clarity, not volume. These Bluetooth over ear headphones have been designed by engineers and doctors to give you an experience like never before.
HOW THEY WORK Everyone has a degree of hearing loss. Every person hears differently, and every person hears differently in each ear. We tailor the sound for each person based on these two principles. The first time you use these headphones you perform a simple hearing test – the results of which are stored in the headphones themselves. They then use your hearing profile to adjust the sound signal as it passes through them. They adjust your right ear independently from your left, making sure you experience sound in perfect balance. Sometimes the change is enormous, other times it’s subtle, but it’s always there.
COMFORT & STYLE Built with an adjustable headband and soft over-ear cushion, the headphones also boast a rotatable design for easy storage in a slim, hard carry case when travelling. They’re stylish, comfortable and feature a built-in mic for hands free calling.
ABOUT AUDEARA Audeara believe music is one of life’s greatest gifts. A gift that should be cherished. We believe we have created a platform that brings you a listening experience like never before. If you love music, choose headphones that love you back.

What others say

Lara Lewington, BBC Click

Wow, it sounds a lot cleaner. The sound’s a lot sharper. You can hear each element of the sound really clearly.

SlashGear

If you’re looking for a truly personalised experience, short of having a professional fine-tune headphones for you, the Audeara A-01 is really the only way to go.

TechRadar

The headphones make sound clearer in the areas of the audio spectrum you can’t hear, without tampering with the areas you can hear.

Mail Online

Users are less likely to suffer noise over-exposure that could harm hearing, particularly from loud music. 9/10.
