Before getting into this review, I would like to thank Clara from UBSOUND for reaching out to me and offering a pair of Fighter earphones for me to review. On top of that, what I really loved is the honesty that Clara had with me, regarding the earphone – by that I mean I’ve yet to come across a manufacturer to actually say: “Please consider that the earphones have a v-shaped acoustic signature, with textured, rounded and powerful Basses, clear and clean Highs and warm Mids a bit backwarded, giving a great 3d effect and a nice warm soundstage”. Seriously, after having listened to them, I completely agree. I know this is a spoiler to the sound quality section, but I couldn’t go without saying it in the intro. Since when have you EVER come across a manufacturer being completely honest with you? I really, really like that – so top marks to Clara and UBSOUND for being honest with me prior to sending me out the earphones.
In terms of availability, in the UK they can be bought between £48 and £62 on AmazonUK, despite their MSRP being £70 on UBSOUND’s website. As the prices vary quite substantially, I’ve gone for the mid-ground and settled to review the earphones at the £60 price tag.
Now let’s get on with this review!
