I was not expecting 500$ headphone and I was not surprised with the performance. I'm too old to believe these kind of deals... Many of us came here with the headfonia review. Actually that guy gives the cons and pros of the headphone but kind a hides the cons behind the compliments.
These are not garbage but Its a extreme weirdish torture mid-bright headphone with bass light performance. And other weirdish weird thing about them they have recessed treble in 10khz region. Who ever tuned these thing must be doped.
It needs long time burn in(Min 100 and more).
Build quality is" meh" but ok. All the cables are garbage( coiled one usable) . It looks fine. Some say cups are plastic but I dont think so.. Im comfortable wtih it but I have a weird head-shape so beware of that and I use some sort of headband cushion for headphones.
I threw eveything I have to mj1 but it was hard to enjoy them without proper e.q. I have arcam rhead amp, luxury and precision l3, fiio a5 and few other dap and dacs . And I like mid-centric music(that is why I bought it), my collection is full with anouar brahem and tord gustavsen etc... Actually only source I can listen mj1 without EQ is shozy alien gold. Soft nature of these dap smoothes the harsh mids . But even I use eq with them I cant listen with genres like rock, metal etc..... My only closed cans are th-00 so I dont have any other closed headphones to compare(Im not even going to with my open cans). If you like the look and you re only listening slow smooth things you can buy them(90$ "no more") it gives you good detail with airy presentation but otherwise I strongly suggest go find something else.
My Mj1 setting for eq in neutralizer app.
