Not the most comfortable, detailed or dynamic headphones we've heard
Crisp, controlled bass
Could do with more detail and dynamism
With potentially the most memorable name in headphones, Fanny Wang has done a good job of getting itself noticed in a crowded marketplace. And theFanny Wang 1000 design shows exactly the rivals in its sights – Beats by Dre.
Like the Beats line, the 1000s are bass-heavy – but it’s crisper and better controlled, lending them best to any music with a low-end bias.
They do lose detail in the high end, though, and can be somewhat clinical compared to others at this price.
Their design is a little too rigid too, resulting in a strange fit that rests heavily on the top part of your ear – uncomfortable to say the least.
