[Review] Sensaphonics j-phonics - the BEST professional universal stage ear monitor yet - Page 14

post #196 of 208

K2 meets applebuds... 5x better? Not sure how to quantify that - but... apple's bass is the worst - it just can't compete (I already pushed the buds to my ears to get the best sound) and there's so much to be done. Treble is so so. But yeah, apple sounds mid forward. But again not in the K2's league.

 

edit: and it's L is R and R is L when plugged on my phone :D

The bass roll-off on the apple earbuds is terrible, but the rest of the FR is very flat and pretty good quality, and when you think about it they are the most popular earphones in the world! People treasure them.  I think the J-phonic is a good upgrade for anyone that treasures their apple earbuds and doesn't want to change the sound signature, just improve the bass a ton and lift everything else up several notches.

Ok nevermind my apple earbuds comment, it's non-existensial sub-bass and the J-phonic has incredible sub-bass, so they are complete opposites in bass, sorry...

 

I started testing bass on the J-phonic and I'm a bit shocked.

Heehee, you're forgiven. I unsubscribed myself on the EX-threads already and my MDR7550 are now for sale. It's really the mids I'm after now...

Using the 75ohm impedance adapter, the mids takes a step back giving more emphasis on the lows and highs. I think I should sell this cable now, not much of use for me :D

Also, the j-phonics, just like the 2X-s and 3MAX, is catered to the pros. I don't really expect Headfi to 'get it'. I've seen some videos of artists using the j-phonics and they like them. As an audiophile, I love them, but then again, I came to the audiophile world from ad-hoc studio/recording work.

 

 

 

An insightful chap, that shigzeo.

Reviving this thread because I'm curious to know, who still has their K2 SP/MX, and what changes (if any) have you endured since your first impression(s)?

Someone living in japan who could help me to buy these phones?

Looks like you and me are on the same quest lol. I'm rather curious to see what these IEM's sound like.
