A good replacement for q-Jays

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello,

My q-Jays just died (left monitor stops and goes, must be a problem with the cable) and Amazon uk won't replace them because they are now unavailable. I bought them £90 (110€ as I live in France) at the time, and I can't buy another pair since they now reach easily 200-250€. After some research, I found the UE 700 and from the different reviews I read, they seem to be a pretty decent replacement. So I might buy them, but I wanted to know if there was a better pair of IEMs that would compete better with the q-Jays.

Thanks for you attention and help !

They're share the same drivers. The q-jays, DBA-02, Brainwavz B2, UE700 all share the same drivers. Somehow the B2 come up tops in terms of SQ, but otherwise they're quite similar.

 

You can post your faulty Q-Jays on the for sale/trade forums to recuperate some cash as well.

Thanks for the quick reply, but what SQ means ?

I'll check the reviews for the B2, thanks again !

 

Edit: Amazon offers me a full refund though, so I'm good :)

I've switched from q-Jays to Brainwavz B2 and in my opinion the B2 is a better IEM! Better mids, better highs, little bit less quantity in the bass, (not by much) but still a nice punch. Guitars especially sounds better on the B2 than the q-Jays.

SQ = Sound Quality

skip the UE700, yeah they look nice but suck in comparison.  the B2 however is pretty good.

 

i can see the q-JAYS right now for £100 though, actually i see one even less http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/11724525/Jays-q-JAYS-In-Ear-Headphones-White/Product.html?_%24ja=tsid:11518%7Ccat:11724525%7Cprd:11724525

Thanks for all your helpful answers. I love the community of this forum :)

But I went for the UE 700, found them cheaper than the B2. I can't afford to spend to much on IEM this days, but I'll keep the B2 in mind if I'm not satisfied with the UE700.

A used B2 can be had for about 100-120 in the trade forums.

 

Also, Raz does alotta mad deals that pull the price of the B2 down to 125 shipped!!

I'm sure you'll like them, UE700 is highly underrated here on head-fi..
