With potentially the most memorable name in headphones, Fanny Wang has done a good job of getting itself noticed in a crowded marketplace. And the Fanny 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.
