Fender's Stunning New Headphones Are Worth Their $500 Price Tag
The best headphones transform the music. They reveal notes lost and whispers hidden and the rub of a finger down the string of a guitar. They expand the music and transport you. Whenever you move up a price point, the sound should move too. And that's exactly what happened with the Fender FXA7 in-ear monitors (IEMs). The last in-ear headphones in the $500 range I tried didn't do that. They were a pair of Shure 535s. I loved my Shure 215 Special Editions and wanted to chase the lost bits of my music again, to find all the things I'd been missing. So I spent $455 (plus change to get them delivered in a day) and I queued up a mix of some of my favorite songs.
