First of all, I would like to thank Rob, over at RedGiant for sending me the A04’s for review! Thanks Rob!
The RedGiant A04 Incus, known as the A04, is the cheapest model in the RedGiant product line. It comes in at a very reasonable price, where your average customer would be willing to splash out on some new so called “high-end earphones” as they like to put it – these for me were priced perfectly in-between the Denon AH-C260 (£25), Sennheiser CX400II (£25), & the Sony EX510/500’s (£40-50).
Let’s get on with this review!
