A brief review of the stupidly expensive SuperDarts headphones from Atomic Floyd

Part 1: Thoughts on listening to music with Atomic Floyd’s SuperDarts 

Shit, I’ve just wasted the best part of £200 in Amazon vouchers. They sound okay, but you don’t spend that much money for something to be okay.

Part 2: Thoughts on listening to music with Atomic Floyd’s SuperDarts after turning the volume right up

HOLY FUCK!

Yes, they’re stupidly expensive, but the sound is really quite extraordinary. They were recommended by my Techradar colleague James Rivington, who reviewed them here. I think he quite liked them.

    1. I haven’t, but I’ve found a problem with them: since moving to the iPhone 5, they’re too quiet. The new iPhone is significantly quieter than its predecessors, by about one-fifth :(

    1. You’re right. Apple’s new earbuds are noticeably louder than the old ones. Still shite sound compared to the superdarts though. Looks like I have the choice of volume or sound quality, but not both.

      1. Or you need to look out for the new shiny version of the ones you have with a higher sensitivity per watt… then you can tell us all you just bought another pair of £200 headphones… recession? what recession? :)

        1. Pffft, if it weren’t for amazon vouchers I wouldn’t have the current set. My next £200’s going on council tax :)
