Jvc fxt90 or se215LTD or monster turbine

Im trying to find the best of those three for guitars and drum reproduction..... I do enjoy my bass too.... Anyone?
post #2 of 12

I own both the SE215 and the Turbine, and I have to say I prefer the Turbine's a lot more. There is barely any bass bleed and bass is nicely extended with a strong rumble in the sub-bass region. The mids are fairly articulated and guitars are well reproduced. Drum reproduction is pretty good too, although the SE215 may seem to have a stronger transient response when it comes to drums. Please note as well that the Turbine's also lack the strong build quality of the SE215 (my Turbine's are now faulty after 2 years of regular use).

Having own both the SE215 Ltd and the FXT-90, I find that for drum and bass, I'll definitely go for the JVC.

The bass on the Shure is a bit loose and with too much decay. The JVC has tighter and faster bass, IMO that is.

The Shure also has rolled-off treble, especially if you use the foam tip, so guitar plucking might lack the sparkle.

The only way to extract as much treble from the Shure is by tip rolling, and I found that Westone Star tips really shine.

 

Where the Shure excels over the JVC is on the vocal.

I've never listen to the VS GR07, but the thread starter might also try this IEM coz review so far has been very positive.

I would just stick with the JVCs then, if you can get them for that price.
