Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm not an audiophile but I do like to improve my audio quality to the best I can within a budget. I consider headphones important but at the same time am wary of how easily they are broken therefore, I don't like to spend excessive amounts of cash on them. Spending over £100 is what I consider high risk.

I saw these A-T Sonic Fuel on the Vine so I thought I would see how these compare to my Sony MD-EX510's. Same price now (although the Sony is obsolete) but the Sony was originally higher.

In my testing I used the Cowon D20 32GB MP3 Player - Black - dogs dinner interface but outstanding audio. To be fair on the AT's I plugged them into my PC and played music into them all weekend to burn the in a little.

Physically, the AT is quite sizeable thanks the extra bulk of the in-ear 'c' fitting and driver covering. This adds to the weight so when comparing the two, the Sony ear piece comes in at 3g whilst the AT is 7g. Yes, the two are different design in the grip department but the Sony is much more comfortable to wear. The much lighter design means you are much more likely to not know that you are wearing them.
The major plus point for the AT on the physical design is that once they are in, they need to be extracted - they won't be falling out anytime soon! When in the gym, the AT is by far the better option.

Sound quality is tough to review because it's down to personal preference. If they were both brand new out of the box, the AT will impress instantly - the Sony's were shockers! But now, in my opinion, the Sony is the better sounding. I am not saying the AT sounds bad though - just a personal thing.

Pros:
- Very good sound, all round
- Good fit, they won't fall out and are gym/sport friendly
- Remote is fully Android compatible
- Look good

Cons:
- The long cable and positioning of the remote in the middle of the cable make it awkward. I may droop and catch something if you bend over, because of the length and the remote pulling it down.
It's so low that you have to hold it up or shout to use the mic.
For sports, or if you wore a layer above it, it's too low to access. At the gym, I end accidentally pressing the remote button when on machines that require you rest you chest on a pad.

Colour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Despite owning far too many headphones from Sennheiser, Koss, RHA, Denon, etc, I've never tried a pair of Audio-Technicas - a brand with a good reputation and, typically, far more expensive headphones than the ones I'm reviewing now.

First impressions were excellent. The packaging is compact and well designed, making use of stiff cardboard rather than plastic. The headphones and the case for their earbuds are stored in an origami-like construction with two apertures cut out to give a glimpse of what's inside. The 'phones themselves are black aside from the silver Audio-Technica logo. They look unusual and classy.

The earbud case itself is a sturdy little thing, packed with buds in a plethora of sizes and shapes, including foam tips, which many people would have to buy separately with other headphones. I don't typically change out my earbuds on the go, but a case for keeping them organised is definitely a bonus.

Fortunately, the default earbuds that come attached fit me fine, aided by the interesting construction of the earphone itself: it has a rubber extrusion that fits into the fold in your upper ear, thereby keeping everything secure and comfortable without the need for an over-ear band or wire like many other headphones. It works, although it took a little while to get used to. The cable tangles like all headphone cables, but it isn't too bad and doesn't generate much noise when I'm walking around.

So the fit is good, but what about the sound?

It's good. Very good. Clear and loud, even when listening to Spotify on my phone, as it should be. The headphones are versatile enough to deal with badly compressed streams and make them sound OK, and are also able to reproduce higher quality sources, exposing nuances of detail and tonality.

I must admit I was expecting a bit more from these earphones. The sound is very crisp and clear and there is a good separation. The bass is lacking a bit of punch. The size of the set is also worth considering. I have chosen the smallest earpieces and they are a little to big for me, even though I am an average size man. I bought the set for running and they stay in place when moving about but they jump up and down due to their size.
Overall, this set do not quite meet my expectations but I might expect to much of an in-ear piece. Clearly I have bought these for the wrong purpose, being a runner.

Having previously worked through a number of headphones that broke this set is solid and definitely an improvement.

The cable is thick and does not knot, the earpiece fits snugly and does not work out of your ear whilst you walk and the sound is great.

These were not in stock when I ordered them but other reviews suggested they were worth waiting for - I am glad I did.
