JVC Flats Review


So, I wanted to start reviewing something other than in-ear headphones, and this is my second on-ear headphones review. I also bought these as I found out the hard way, that a high use of in-ear headphones can cause ear pain, no matter how comfortable they may be.

1

The Sound:

At first, it was a little difficult to get used to on-ear headphones as I almost never use them. So I was a little disappointed in the sound at first. I thought it was horrible. But then, as I got used to the different profile of on-ear headphones, I became impressed with the sound quality. I’m not saying that it was great, but for the price range ($10-20) the sound was pretty good.

I think that it has a little trouble with the highs, and the bass isn’t that powerful, but these headphones are a nice average pair, and you would have to pay 2-3 times the price to get a better sound.

The Design:

These headphones have a nice design, I wouldn’t be embarrassed to wear them. They come in several different colors, meant to match all the iPod colors, but I chose the black. They have a nice glossy finish on the earpieces, and the headband is not uncomfortable. They are nice and light, without feeling too cheap.

One of the nice features of these headphones is the swivel hinge on the earpieces that allow them to twist flat. That way you can store them easier and safer. Additionally, being able to twist to fit perfectly on your ears adds to the comfort of the earpieces. The earpieces have a nice sized cushion, and I found it to be pretty comfortable, unless I used them for a long time, then my ears started to hurt.

3

Conclusion:

These are a nice pair of headphones for the price. I didn’t mind shelling out somewhere in between $10-20 for these small headphones. I would recommend them if you can’t afford anything more than $20. If you can afford something more, there is a lot out there.

-Thanks

MEElectronics M6 Review


I got these because when I went jogging, my earbuds would fall out of my ears. Very annoying. I had high hopes for a pair of headphones that come from a company that claims “Ultimate Sound in Style” What I found was that the M6 were an adequate pair of headphones.

2

The Sound:

Like I said before, I had high hopes for these headphones. And actually, I found that they sounded pretty good without customizing the EQ. Probably one of the better sounding headphones when using a standard EQ setting. You would think that something that sounded pretty good would sound great with a little tweaking of the EQ settings. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Customizing the EQ only made them sound a little better, if better at all.

Now, about the actual sound. I thought that the bass was lacking, especially when compared to the Altec Lansing Backbeat Plus. Whenever I switched from the M6 to the Backbeat Plus, I got that nice boom from the Altec Lansing that I had been missing from the M6s. The mids and highs were OK. They could sometimes sound a little flat, and other times sound pretty good. I think that it depended on what music I listened to. Maybe not just type of music, but just different albums would sound different. I know that that sounds obvious, but I would say that these headphones emphasize the sound difference between different albums.

The Design:

The M6 headphones are a pair of in-ear buds that is designed so the cable runs behind the ear, thus reducing the possibility of the earbuds being pulled out of your ears. Fortunately, (for me) they do just that. I can be jogging and the headphones will stay exactly where I placed them in my ears. They won’t even adjust position in my ears.

3

The aesthetic design of these headphones is good. Just a plain, glossy black. You can order these headphones with a clear body, but that is not my style.

These headphones come with a large variety of ear tips. It comes with a pair each of three flange small tips, three flange large tips, two flange large tips, and small, medium, and large single flange tips. I am actually not sure if the single flange tips are different sizes, as if there is a difference, it is a small one. That is a lot of tips, and I commend MEElectronics for covering their bases by including all of them.

4

Another interesting and useful feature of the M6 headphones is that for the first two inches of the cable from the earbuds is wrapped with memory wire. This allows you to custom fit the cable around your ears.

Speaking of the cable, this one is an OK cable. I don’t have to mention how much I love cloth covered cable, and unfortunately, these headphones are a simple plastic. Oh, well, it is OK. It doesn’t seem to tangle that much. That could be partly due to the fact that it comes with a small case to store them in. So when I am done, I just wind the cable around four of my fingers, put them in the case, and zip it up. The case also stores the extra ear tips, in case I want to swap them out.

Conclusion:

These are a good pair of headphones for the money (around $20), though I wouldn’t necessarily recommend them.

-Thanks

Welcome!


If you have come in search of the perfect sound, you have come to the right place.

I love music. You undoubtedly love music. Millions of people around the world love music. But how many people love that perfect sound? You know, the sound you hear when you are listening to your favorite song on your favorite MP3 player, set to your favorite Equilizer setting, pumped through your favorite headphones. (It almost makes me want to cry, just thinking of it)

Wait, you don’t know what I am talking about? You have never experienced this? What?!

Yeah, me neither. Not yet at least. That is the purpose of this website. To find that perfect sound. Who knows, maybe along the way you will find it as well.

I can’t promise much at first in the way of regularity, as I am just a college kid, trying to work my way through college without all the debt. So things might be a little slow until I get some more money.

But I can guarentee you that you will come here looking for information about a specific device or headphones, and, assuming I have reviewed that specific device or pair of headphones, you will find what you came looking for – The Perfect Sound.
