Conclusion: Atomic Floyd has a hit on their hands, as the TwistJax are some of the best-sounding earphones we have heard in quite some time. In fact, if you were to take a pair of B&W’s most expensive loudspeakers and squeeze them into a set of earphones, you might wind up with a pair of the TwistJax. They are that good. At $200 USD, these are not cheap, and there will always be the more expensive brands out there, but we feel you get a lot for your money here.
Pros: Amazing imagery, Deep, clean bass, Crisp highs and mid ranges, Quality construction, Lots of accessories
Cons: Ear fatigue after prolonged use, Metal initially feels cold to the touch, Passive noise reduction is better on competitors, not a big deal though, People sitting next to you can hear the music, sound leakage
Excerpt: Atomic Floyd make a range of headphones based on broadly similar principles. They are all lovingly machined from "acoustic" steel and are of a hybrid style offering both in-ear and earbud construction, the same as the Philips SHE9800 .
Pros: Good quality construction, good sound quality
Cons: Heavy, the "twist" seems pretty redundant, rubbers are a little too sharp for prolonged use
