The Q Adapt comes in both the traditional looking Lightning Cans over-ear form and the more commuter-friendly ear bud form. Both are equally aesthetically pleasing. The on-ear model is a bit bigger, looks more comfortable for long listening sessions, and comes with a slightly higher price tag than the ear bud model which looks like THE perfect travel companion for any new iPhone user. From a dedicated app you can adjust the active noise cancellation properties and find tune your sound like very few other headphones can do.
Any downsides? Well, they don’t have the heftiest of bass, so if you’re a big hip-hop fan they might not fully satisfy, however for the train ride to work or at the gym where you might want to drown out background noise, you can’t beat the active noise cancellation.
As their name denotes, the 1More Triple Drivers actually have 3 separate drivers inside (most headphones have you guessed it, just one driver). With different drivers handling different sounds, the 1Mores easily hammer out solid bass without distorting the mids or high trebles http://lightningcans.com/news/
To further enhance Lightning Cans high-end each bud contains 2 armatures, which are in essence mini tweeters that take the work load of producing satisfying mids and crystal high response http://lightningcans.com/news/.
The 3rd driver, the dynamic driver backs everything up with deeper mids and rumbly bass. These badboys are fully MFi certified as well, have a built in DAC (that’s “digital-analog converter) producing true HiRes audio all via a kevlar reenforced lightning cable.
Philips is a massive player in consumer audio and they were truly ahead of the curve with their lightning-terminated Fidelio’s.
If Libratone’s Bluetooth cans aren’t for you then you will want to consider the Fidelio M2Ls as they are not Bluetooth and instead utilized a lightning cable that plugs directly into your Apple device.
With a built in DAC and amplifier they take full advantage of the lightning connector’s ability to transmit both data (the music itself) as well as power (electricity) to produce some of the best sounding headphones at an attainable price point.
Featuring a closed back (for minimal sound leakage) as well as Philips proprietary Bass Reflex System (BRS) these are great all-around performers for the dicerning Apple user.
With a frequency range of 7025,000Hz these have one of the broadest response ranges in the list here, running 107db of sensitivity with less than .1% distortion (THD) Philips engineering experience really shines through in this classy yet understated set of cans http://lightningcans.com/news/..
