[Review] Moshi Clarus *Initial Impressions* - Page 2

post #16 of 18

wowow:beerchug: thanks for these replies and impressions, and especially for taking the time to chart these things up.

EXTREMELY appreciated.

 Quite possible bit of tip rolling may help out the highs a bit maybe a wider opening.

 

Thanks again.

More useful info in a matter of a couple posts than other threads have in a couple pages !

I got busy, then been busy since. But as a member of the rare species that is Clarus owners, I'll (finally) drop some insight on what this headphone is like. In short, it is a nice headphone with a number of practical issues.

 

Good

  • Nice sound: mellow, warm, easy to listen to. Me likey :smile:

 

On the fence

  • Low isolation: could go both ways, but depends on context

 

Bad

  • A cable kinkier than many porn stars
  • Heavy casing like no other: cannot rest it around your neck - must put it away in the (poorly designed) case
  • Wind noise for dayzzz: lots of it - think biking, jogging, windy day, etc.
  • Won't stay in place: needs to reseated more often than not, FME

No problem.  I should probably measure the Vortex Pro, another IEM I was impressed with, some time :p

These actually stayed in place for me pretty nicely.  I do agree with the weight though, I use the earhooks to hang them on my shirt or something when they aren't in use (and I'm not using the case).
