Audiofly is relentless in its pursuit of premium audio technology and elegant listening experience. As someone who enjoys listening to podcasts and music, I’m on board with the brand’s drive for audio perfection. And at Audiofly’s consistently mid-range price point, I can afford to be.
But has the brand’s newest offering delivered the meticulous, balanced sound I’ve come to expect from a local? Do you need to score the AFT2 if your AFT1s are still going strong?
Audiofly AFT2 True Wireless: The Unboxing
I grabbed the AFT2 True Wireless Sunset because I like my headphones like I like my sunsets – orange/red. Audiofly has taken colour inspiration from the Australian landscape, so for those wanting to branch out from classic semi-matte black, you’ve got Sand (pearl white), Sunset (deep orange), and Gum Leaf (green).
Included in the box are:
- 1 pair AFT2 earbuds
- AFT2 charge case
- USB Type-C to Type-A charging cable
- Extra silicone ear tips: 1 x small size, 1 x medium size
- User Guide
- Warranty Info
- Audiofly AFT2 True Wireless: The experience
Straight out of the gate, the protective casing feels durable and solid – plus it carries an additional 25 hours of playback time for long-haul trips. Not that you’ll need to eat into your backup charge often, with the AFT2 earbuds each delivering up to 10 hours of music playback.
Qualcomm’s proprietary cVc Noise Cancellation Technology delivers a total immersion listening experience, ideal for the morning train commute or tuning out office life with your favourite podcast. You can’t expect the same level of isolation as over-ear headphones offer, but with the sleek profile of the AFT2 the cVc functionality is impressive.
Responsive, intuitive touch functions let you navigate your playlists with ease, and the AFT2 offers secure, ergonomic ear-tips designed for comfortable wear. Earbud headphones are notorious for their lack of comfort, but the AFT2 was lightweight and unobtrusive.
As for the sound quality: 6mm dynamic driver, Qualcomm Bluetooth 5.0, support for aptX HD and AAC, and solid isolation for a crisp, true listening experience. The AFT2 easily earns its reputation for professional sound quality and sensational, balanced audio.

Audiofly AFT2 True Wireless: The Cons
We really only had the one issue with the AFT2 – the 90-minute charge time with no quick-charge functionality.
Audiofly AFT2 True Wireless: Final Verdict
The Australian audio creatives may have pulled off another win with the AFT2 – thanks to its ergonomic design and pristine audio experience. That said, if you’re still rocking the AFT1 model with pride, rock on! The AFT2 delivers everything I’d expect of a premier audio brand and then some, but the AFT1 can easily hold its own on the current earbud market.
