Andrew Williams dissects the Maiden Audio Ed-Ph0n3s…
SHOULD YOU BUY THE MAIDEN AUDIO ED-PH0N3S?
I find the Onkyo Iron Maiden ED-Ph0n3s to be one of the least cynical music tie-in headphones to date. Given the somewhat limited numbers I expect them to sell – not everyone wants to wear their Iron Maiden fandom on their head – the effort put it in is impressive.
Their sound is also carefully considered and delivers what it promises.
They really are headphones that make hard rock sound better than most others. The only question is whether this is what people really want when the result, at this level at least, is one of an unforgiving edge to the sound that doesn’t sit well at very high volumes or ultra-casual, easy listening.
