I bought the Monks just because I had $10 balance in my Paypal account.
I never heard of the Monks before and had zero expectation of them sounding even decent. Once I received them I plugged them to my Samsung Galaxy S9+ and was pleasantly surprised. The sound came out as open and airy with very soft highs and great mids. The bass sounded a bit recessed but not to offset the overall sound presentation. After listening to a few songs I was certain that these are something special and needs some better treatment. I fired up Tidal plus via Audirvana + on my MacBook and plugged them to my Chord Mojo headamp. What I heard was pure joy to my ears (honey to my ears). One after the other I went through almost my whole playlist, and mind you without skipping a single song! The mojo brought out more detailed and controlled sound from these. There was an ear to ear grin on my face throughout.
These had no business sounding so good for less than $5! I immediately ordered two more pairs.
Now I have three pairs tuned differently. I stuffed some cotton in the earbuds and now the slight midbass hump is gone and they sound a little bit more deep and the mids are cleaner. I also attached the wing type hook to these and now they are more stable! I upgraded cable on one of these as well.
Is it blasphemous to say that I enjoy the sound from these even more than my $700 Focal Elex!
Don't think twice but get these right away and thank me later.
Hi. I'm wondering where'd you get the accessories for the VE Monks like the Ear wing. Thanks.
