JH Audio Layla and Angie - Head-Fi TV - Page 91

post #1351 of 1927

As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing clinical about the Layla unless you feel, to quote Emperor Joseph II,

Got the Angie's today.  Got to audition both the Angie and Layla at Headfoneshop in Toronto for quite some time.  The Angie's are pretty awesome.   I couldn't justify the price difference between the Angie and the Layla.  To me, the Layla sounded better, but not immensely so, and my impressions that Layla > Angie could be for a number of reasons aside from sheer audio performance (psychological, the quality of my source, my inexperienced ears, the bass pot settings not being directly comparable).   Anyways, will like to see where the consensus lands on all of this Angie vs. Roxanne vs. Layla vs. K10 business... but in the meantime, I'm going to have Angie sensually massage my ear canals.

Question - can you get copious bass out of an Angie? Not sloppy, but big, tight and very present?

I have it cranked to 3 oclock. It can do a bit more. It reaches low and is very defined. However, my Heir 5.0's have MOAR! bass, maybe to the detriment of other frequencies. The Angie has all the bass I want for my tastes, but I haven't managed to get the thunderous club sound some may want (which is copious and congested). I was told the Roxannes have more bass, which I didn't get to try, but is within spitting distance of the Angie's price wise. Maybe the Angie will open up after burn in (if there is such thing).

When you have the bass turned up how is the sub-bass compared to the mid-bass. I have been eyeing the Angies up but still saving for them in my hobby fund.

acain, don't think I am well versed enough to really give you a proper analysis.   It does go quite low though.   It seems to go lower than the Heir 5.0 with better clarity, but less total impact.

Looks like I'll be waiting longer yet for my pair of Angie, sometime by the end of the week (hopefully). When I do get them I'll be posting impressions on how balanced the frequencies are and how the bass plays with the other frequencies.

Make sure to give them a week of play before coming to conclusions.

Of course, wouldn't do it any other way.

It just gets my goat when the dealer tells me they have stock over the phone and when I order a few hours later they are 'sold out'. Now I'll be waiting two weeks (minimum) for what I was told was in stock and 45min from my house. I could have ordered from accross the country for $10 more and I would have it in my ears already.

I always prefer to buy local and am willing to wait an extra day or 2 but misleading you just isn't right.

Which store did you order from? I just ordered Angie from Earphonesolutions and it shipped immediately, though I probably would've ordered from Moon Audio if I had known they were carrying Angie since they have free 2-day shipping.

Can't wait to see how they compare to my UERMs!

I'm in Canada so it's not as easy to find a retailer with stock and the prices were beginning to rise (AK's doing) so I jumped on a local retailer that I've never dealt with because the price was right. My usual dealer (yes, I'm addicted to Head Fi) sold his last pair(demo) just before I went in to try them.

If I bought from Earphonesolutions I'd have to pay $200 more than I did due to the weak Canadian dollar, plus shipping, taxes, and duties etc,.

I don't want to smear the name of the retailer so I won't reveal them but I'm not impressed so far. It could be an honest thing and I just happened to miss out on the last pair they had in stock but I doubt it.

Anyway, I'm belly aching is all and very excited to give them a go.

No, but $1099 U.S. Equals $1300-ish Canadian, plus shipping, taxes and duties. I paid $1189 CA, no shipping cost or duties.

Unless when they list the same price for the Canadian region as the U.S. region the price really is in Canadian dollars then it's a screaming good price! But I doubt it.

You're right, my terminology may have been off. The Layla is definitely a warm sounding IEM. They aren't clinical, as in being biased toward the higher frequencies. However, they sound very lifeless to my ears. It's definitely a great earphone for picking up nuances and micro detail. Its soundstage is also immense, matching the Roxanne's. However, in terms of a musical and fun experience, I found the Layla less than stunning.
