[Review] Sensaphonics j-phonics - the BEST professional universal stage ear monitor yet - Page 10

post #136 of 208

I've heard of people taking the filter out of their SM3s to get more treble. I haven't done it myself though.

 

That said, the J-Phonics sound like they'd be more transparent than the SM3s

- yep i did just, and though it was slightly better, the mids did ever so slightly shouty... maybe my ears are just fatigued (=

 

if the SP or even the MX have more treble than the SM3, i'll get the K2 ASAP!

K2 SP is definitely much brighter than SM3.

Any more impressions on the SP or MX? I'm thinking about getting one next month.

You'll get that with the k2 SP, but I kept the Earsonics SM3. I didn't like the W4.

FWIW -- I haven't personally heard the j-phonic K2 SP vs MX head-to-head, but Taka from Sensaphonics Japan informs me that roughly 75-80% of customers prefer the SP version, which is modeled on the reference-flat response of the Sensaphonics 2X-S and 2MAX customs.

SM3 w/ filters on?

Yes, I have the SP now. (skeleton shell btw).

 

I noticed these don't have a filter at all, that's interesting.

 

The small pelican case is very nice looking and professional.

 

No comments on the sound yet, Etymotic raped my ears, and I have a small cold.

 

I need to get over my cold and have fresh ears, it's like wearing a really strong perfume (Etymotic) and then trying a different one, it just won't smell like it's supposed to.

I think the MX uses physical filters to affect the change in SP's flat sound signature (but don't quote me).

 

Looking forward to your comments, kiteki.

post #148 of 208

Anyone have the SP and MX to compare?

Interesting comparison to a Stax headphone, I'll keep that in mind when I listen to them.

 

I think high volumes make them sound pretty bright.

 

 

@Jack, Sure.

The SP is considered a stage monitor. Also, folks are insisting that it has a fairly flat response curve. The representative here insists that the 'phone does not roll off the highs.

So what makes this a stage monitor? Anything audio related?
