    Phonak Audéo PFE 012 Review

    Source: Best Headphones - Review of the Top 10 Best Headphones

    With 60 years experience developing hearing devices, Phonak have the know-how when it comes to getting a comfortable and secure in-ear fit, which makes the Phonak Audeo Perfect Fit Earphones (PFE) aptly named.

    The new Perfect Bass PFE models (the PFE 012 and PFE 022 fitted with iPhone mic) are supplied with an acoustic filter to give clear, well defined bass response. The sound signature of the entire PFE range is accurate, but these new models add low end punch for music that demands more powerful bass response.

    Based on high end balanced armature technology, rather than the much cheaper to manufacture dynamic drivers used in most earphones at this price point, the PFE offers audio performance that equals that of high end in-ear monitor earphones. All PFE models have the same well made cabling and robust build, so this is a pair of earphones you can expect to continue enjoying for many years to come.

    We think Phonak have got the sound balance just right with the new PFE Perfect Bass models. The detail and instrument separation is incredible for an earphone at this price point and the comfortable fit is as good as it gets without moving up to custom fit earphones. Even people with the smallest ears will find the PFE fits comfortably.

    Verdict

    These innovative Swiss designed, precision made earphones are very comfortable for all ear sizes and have clear, detailed sound that will satisfy audiophiles, with enough power to satisfy bass lovers. Highly recommended.
