Design and Construction
When you look at ME Electronics Air Fi Matrix 2 from the outside of its box, you will notice that this pair of cans is extremely thin.

Air Fi Matrix 2 has a sleek and very comfortable design. It comes in black, which adds more sophistication to its entire look. Its headband and ear cups are wrapped with carbon fibre that makes it very durable and withstand falling or unexpected blows. The headband is also adjustable to enable you to fit the headphones perfectly on your head. Its ear cups have ComfortTouch pads to bring more comfort and ease even when listening for long hours. Moreover, they are articulating for additional comfortable positioning and easier carrying of the headphones.
