Anybody have an info on the build, SQ and characteristics of those phones listed above? they are quite cheap on ebay and i would like a pair of durable phones to exercise/fool around in.
V Moda... VIbe/Faze/Bass Freq/Nero?SQ?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I have the original Vybe and they are not the most durable in the world. Whatever that stuff is that covers the wires tears very easily. The right side is torn and the left side actually shredded.
There also isn't any reliable of way to grip the headphone plug to remove it. It's way too smooth
Please bear in mind that these are the only IEM's I've ever tried so I really don't have anything to compare them to.
I think the sound quality is nice. Not great not terrible.
They sound is clear but the treble sounds very laid back if not muffled. The bass is good but it definitely doesn't blow me away even with trance music. I can hear the bass very loud and clear with stuff like TMP but I can't feel the bass.
Comfort level is low. After about 5 minute they start sliding out and I have to constantly push them back in. The only way I can get them to stay in with no slippage is to insert them with the cord facing up and towards the back. Which isn't very comfortable.
Isolation is execrable unless you have music playing. Without music playing you can hear people talking at normal levels. With music playing you won't hear very much of anything but I can say the same about my full size Ultrasone Pro 550's. Actually I think I would say that the Ultrasones isolate better with music playing.
IIRC the Vybe 2 has a better plug and is supposed to have a clearer sound. I think I would suggest those over the Vybe I

i had 2 pairs of v-modas in my life
i brought 2 bass freq as a bundle, and both stopped working after 3 months
the sound quality is pretty good though, but keep in mind you have to take extra care of them, they are not durable at all, break down very easily
