I see.

 

How many J-Phonic owners are there on head-fi?  voice your opinions please :)

post #122 of 208

j-phonic K2 SP is the best universal IEM I have owned so far.

Same opinion as "Yooss" then, thanks.

I hope this will be my fun IEMs :) I wouldn't mind if the mids will fall between the MDR-7550 and the Baby Stax \m/ [The customs can wait :P]

It isn't as thick in the mids as the UM3x or the W4, unless you listen to the MX, which has a smoothed out top end, so the midrange seems more forward.

The j-phonic K2 SP isn't fun, at all. Only at high volumes. Less fun than the SM3 (funniest) and W4, but it has a better presentation, as a stax Headphone. Better for stage, with better transparency than the SM3, but less bass impact and texture, with great low level resolution.

The j-phonic SP is the only IEM I own. I bought them for stage use (I play guitar) and general listening. I wanted something flat, that would sound essentially the same as my nearfield studio monitors. Matching guitar tones in my home studio with what I hear live via my IEM's was very important.

 

The j-phonics are very neutral, and I've achieved everything I had hope to with them. They are also extremely comfortable to wear and listen to, for extended periods.

 

Terry.

@ Tone Seeker, thanks for your impressions, I plan on using these with an electric guitar a little bit too, out of a Toneport UX1 amp, looking forward to the result.

 

@ TMMC, Ok, I guess I'll have to use these at high volumes then. ;)

 

@ Shigzeo, Nice to know these will be great for jogging then.

It seems like there is a lot of information on head-fi about the Sensaphonics 2-XS, which Shigzeo says sounds quite similiar to the J-phonic and use the same internals (he likes the J-phonic better, though).

 

To get a better perspective on the J-phonic, I suppose it's useful to search for the 2-XS..?

Any detailed comparison of the K2 MX and SP vs the W4's? Wonder if the limited 2 drivers hinders sonic quality at all.

post #130 of 208

I'm curious to know how the K2 mx handles hip hop.

post #131 of 208

From shigzeo's post:

 

The MX version has a filter at the base of the sound tube that curtails the highs a bit and brings out the lows and mids a bit more.

 

I'm really hoping this is the one for me :D Japan -> USA -> Philippines in ? days...

The K2 SP is the last upgrade you can do in the universal iem world. Best construction and sound.

 

I've had the Westone 4j-phonic K2 SP  (apple red) and the ES SM3 for review (videos in portuguese). The K2 SP performed best and the SM3 was the funniest. W4 has a different presentation, I didn't like them so much as the others.

Agreed, or at least I think it is breaching the gap between universal and (some of the best) custom IEM.

I was eyeing the SM3 and the SE535 when i suddenly took that sharp curve and ended up with the K2s :D Hope to get them in 2weeks time.

post #135 of 208

hey guys, how is the treble of both the SP and MX version compared to the SM3? i love the SM3 for rendering my music, but sometimes i hope to get more treble presence for a more lively performance.
