Nexus 5 Sound Quality and 100$ earphones

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I wish to use my Nexus 5 as the primary source.

 

1) Was wondering if I should acquire a highly touted around 100$ earphone like the Vsonic V-1000, Yamaha EPH-100 and the JVC HA-FXD80? 

Would the nexus 5 be able to make them reach their full potential?

 

2) If no, would you Audio Technica CKM-500is or Audio Technica IM-50 be sufficient? Which is better sounding?

 

Note: I love Indie Rock, Pop and Rock.

The N5 should be more than capable of driving the first set of headphones quite well. I'm driving a set of EPH-100s with my SGS4 at the moment and it really sounds amazing.

Thank you. What do you think about the JVC HA-FXT90's. They sell for 95$ on amazon as opposed to 150$ for the yamaha's.

 

Is the price difference worth it?

Hello,

The Nexus 5 should be able to drive almost all earphones. If you need a built in remote control for your Nexus, do consider the Jabra Vox http://www.jabra.com/products/mobile_corded/jabra_vox/jabra_vox I find it great with your music genre although I wouldn't say it's the best for rocks music

Hope it helps

The nexus 5 sounds surprisingly good and offers a decent amount of power.
