V-Jays Review - Page 6

post #76 of 114

would you mind doing a short comparison of them for me because im trying to decide which to purchase, also do you know of any other similar phones to these two?

post #77 of 114

Or you could just read Headfonia's review of a ton of these type of headphones. He gives the edge to the V-Jays but it is very close. 

 

Let me google that for you...

Great Review Mark.

Sold my RE-ZEROs and ordered the V-Jays.

I am looking forward to comparing them to my PX100s.

post #79 of 114

Just got my v-jays and out of the box they are very impressive.

Brighter than the PX100s in mids and highs (they actually remind me of my RE-ZEROs or even the RE0s in this range)

The Bass extends lower than the PX100s although the PX100s are darker and have more in the mid bass.

I agree with Mark there is a slight high mid peak that can show up in some situations, but no sibilance.

This is more noticeable when i listen to someone like Sara Bareilles.

Im going to let these burn in for a while.

great bargains aren't they?

post #81 of 114

got a pair a few weeks ago, love the sound...lots of bass but mids and highs are fairly well balanced.  much better than my portapros and px100's

 

my only real problem is the microphonics on the cord...it can be very bothersome

is anyone else having a problem or noticing this?

its strange to get so much cord noise from a non-iem

Yes Mark, I think they are good value for the price.

 

"seanmo"

Im not getting any bothersome microphonics (not like some of my past iems).

I like the short cord as I always put my walkman in my top pocket and with the short cord i dont need a shirt clip.

I found the pressure against my ears a little too much so i put the 2nd set of pads inside the first and that helps.

huh, I get a lot of little rubbery 'pops' where I think the cord is hitting the bottom of the plastic...strange design to have the plastic extend below the cord.  it can be quite annoying.  However I have kind of a huge head so maybe that is part of the problem ;)

 

I was wondering if anyone used the short cord!

 

the sound is great though and maybe the microphonics will go away

how much leakage do these have?

post #85 of 114

lots-o-leakage since they are an open, non circum aural earphone

 

post #86 of 114

are we talking equal with portapro's, less, more?

post #87 of 114

about the same

How do these compare to the Senn PX 100-II i ?

 

I haven't seen to many PX 100-II i  reviews, but the ones that I have read state that they're better than their predecessors with more punchy bass, better build and comfort.
