First post here. I've read a ton on the forums, and Joker's excellent 197 IEM review, and seem to find a ton of completely opposite opinions. I'm hoping that "q-Jays has no bass" is in comparison to an IEM designed for pure lows, and the q-Jays would blow away my current buds.
Anyway, I'm coming from a set of Skullcandy Asyms and am going to buy one of the 3 listed in the title within a day. I've got small ears and the skullcandy housing is pretty large, which causes some discomfort on the days I can plug in for 8 hours at the office.
Also, the crummy rubber caps don't make a good seal in my left ear, despite the right being acceptable.
So, I'm going to make a change tonight.
In short, I'd like a bit of advice here.
Today I can order:
Westone 2 is $199 with an E6 amp
Brainwavz B2 is $155 with an E11 amp
and the q-Jayz for $180.
I'm not a big fan of ear-piercing treble, but I'm also not a basshead. I listen to a large range of music, from dubstep to Lupe Fiasco to Alkaline Trio to Disturbed.
So.. if it was your money, what would you buy and why ?
I like the design of the q-Jays, and they've been described as a good all-around piece. The Brainwavz sale made me take notice of it, and the Westone 2 is at the top of Joker's list, despite receiving a lower audio score than the Brainwavz (if indeed it is a Fischer clone).
To that, Joker, if you're reading, thanks for the reviews.
My only suggestion: If possible I'd like to see the weight you gave to each category in order to calculate the overall score.
