Gigabyte Fly Headphone Review

Testing the Fly
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Despite not being bendable, which makes it a little awkward to store in handbags and backpacks, the idea behind the Fly is to be light and easily carried. For listening to music during long hours of walking or while in a public transport trip, the Fly doesn’t even seem to be on the head. After several subway trips and errands throughout the city, the headphone was so light that the impression was that the music was playing inside our head.

As for the performance, the Fly is ideal for fans of bass-heavy music like techno, house, and hip-hop. The sound is bigger than the appearance. The midtones, however, are more anemic and somewhat muted. We listened to soundtracks rich in tones and melodies, like Man of Steel (composed by Hans Zimmer) and Game of Thrones (by Ramin Djawadi), and the result was a little flat. It can be helped with a music app that features equalization to boost the midtones. However, once we tuned to Digitally Imported, an online radio specializing in electronic music, the sound was vibrant and ear-shaking.
