To some headphones I get delayed, but since the principle «better late than never» works related, for me it is not a reason to abandon a story about an interesting model. So today we will talk about interesting platedriver a native of China, published under the name Magaosi K5.
Don't know who actually makes this model, because it occurs under different brands, including the recently acclaimed Yinyoo H5 is the same headset, but with a worse package and worse influencing the sound cable (talking about the wires to them I will try to mention in the section of the sound). A good design with well coordinated 5 emitters could not go unnoticed, especially at such an affordable price: ask for Magaosi about $ 180, and against the background of similar proposals «big brands» call this price is high does not turn language.
The Outer box is quite normal, thick black cardboard with a folding magnetic lid, which made a transparent window for observing the fascinating life of the headphones. To set themselves apart from K5 and wires put:the
And, of course, let's not forget about the different instructions and garantiyku, carefully tucked in the pocket on the cover.the
Appearance on the one hand should be in the mainstream of contemporary trends in nornicotine, and on the other hand does it at a good level. Acrylic case «under custome» made very high quality, the developers paid attention to design and ergonomics. When you buy you can choose several different options for colors and faceplates, I have been transparent emerald green, without any additional ornaments.
Not really sure why, but this model is made thin enough metal sound channel, spoiling the whole idea of separate channels for emitters who are responsible for different frequencies, I suspect that it contributes to the worsening of HF, but more on that below. The sound channel in General comfortable, it provides a normal fit and high sound insulation, and due to the absence of sharp edges on the shell we get good ergonomics.
The Cable is made removable, it uses the normal quality MMCX connectors. Complete with Magaosi is enhanced relative to the version Yinyoo cable, giving a small increase in sound, although, as shown by my experiments — you can get even more by using third-party wires. Staff also «lace» among other things has good appearance and performance: it is soft, well kept behind the ears and will not harden in the cold. MIC effect is weak.
Caring about the user of the kit put Bluetooth cable with MMCX connectors. Overall, to say about him except that he is normal and acceptable sounds with headphones I can't. Still, despite the presence of aptX, the quality of the wire better, especially in the areas suffering high frequencies. On the other hand, this Supplement, the kit is clearly not useless, since listen to headphones with your mobile phone or tablet and the wireless, the sound in this case suffers not so much.
To summarize this section, I note that headphones are gathered and they look very good, the Chinese manufacturers the farther away the more I study design and ability to work with the materials.the
To listen To the device used the following headphones: , , , , , , and others.
In General, the supply of headphones is built in the style that you expect from megadriver reinforcement: orientation in MIDs, detail and micro-dynamics are the main elements of the sound of the K5.
The Bass here is surprisingly good, even at «mass» characteristics of, it has good weight, good speed and elasticity, it provides texture and shared tools. Depth here is not transcendent, emphasis on the midbass and deeper represented in smaller numbers, especially on the background of the typical dynamic models. Overall, I would not consider this to be a problem, since most of the bass is in the midbass, and with it the problem the headphones do not have. The exceptions are the electronic music with sintezirovany subbasal and some tools like a body with its lower registers.
The MIDs have Magaosi good, even without the need to make allowance for price. The developers have managed to balance their weight and detail to obtain effective relief flow with a good degree of realism. Stylish headphones emphasize the emotions of the performers and the nuances of sounding instruments, giving a kind of «wow effect». Imaginary scene a little more than medium in depth and width, the separation of the good plans, the tools a little less than real size.
HF is the only part of the range in which the developers of the model, that is, «not held». They are notbad, but on a General level sound models still stand out in a positive direction. If this part of the range of modified headphones would have all the chances to dramatically jump in «level». RF here is simplified and it sounds flat, although it does not descend into outright synthetics. They also normally count, if you do not suffer from sensitivity in this phase range. They have a good resolution, but they have no typical reinforcement models of the extent and diversity of attack with the damping are also simplified.
The Headphones are very dependent on the quality of the cable, for example, their famous fellow from Yinyoo on the treble sounds even worse because of some of the synthetic plaque. The opposite is true, a good wire like Penon CS849 a little bit better then the realism of the RF, however the changes are not radical.
And some of the comparisons. I will limit myself to just a few models, as the heroes of today's review is quite distinctive, so their difference with other models is obvious from the description of the sound.
HiFiBoy OS V3 More neutral headphones with less emphasis on the midrange. The bass is deeper, though, and worse in speed (expected for the hybrid model), MF is better to have a K5, but on RF hybrids HiFiBoy win due to better development plans.
Dunu Falcon-C the Difference in the overall scenario of the Falcon better and udarna low frequency, midrange are built a little different (less resolution, but more vigorously), on the treble, the palm also have Dunu, although the Falcon is also not called here by reference.
1More Quad Driver Chetyrehjadernyj 1More hybrids are a bit more expensive, but offer an interesting sound with a slightly V-shaped flow. These headphones have more bass, although slightly lower resolution, slightly better midrange, and treble worked slightly better, but served in low-key, not abrupt manner.the
As you would expect from budget megadriver fittings, K5 is quite sensitive to the quality of the source, requiring first near-zero impedance, otherwise the settings of the crossover «sail», not always predictable, affecting the sound. So I would not recommend these headphones to mobile phones or source with an impedance above 4-6Ω. You should also avoid players with a high level of background noise, 118 dB sensitivity often make themselves know well, or you can use the adapter with attenuator.
Headphones are generally quite universal, but more fully to their strengths reveal styles focused on the midrange, starting with vocal and instrumental music to well recorded rock. The quality of the recording they are tolerant, but to a certain limit, so around 7 points «picky» 10.
number of traditional tracks in the role of examples
to be honest, I don't know anything about the author of this track, moreover, it is unlikely that I would often like to listen to, but it is in the option feeder Magaosi, this record sounds incredible, all these multifaceted music movement, mixing the chaotic sounds in broken melody — that which emphasizes their beautiful midrange.
Perhaps the K5 a little lacking in depth for the perfect bass playback this track, but as they serve the atmosphere of the concert, with the crowd noise and the characteristic flaws of a live recording — is expensive. With them track can be listened to twice, the first time concentrating on the nuances of vocals, the second — on the General perception, and in each case it will be two different compositions.
a Wonderful experiment to mix electronic music and lounge subspecies of jazz gives another composition well-suitable to the heroes of today's review: diversity and the diversity of the midrange, accentuated the basis of the nice detailed bass creates a dramatic atmosphere that can dissolve the listener into itself.the
Very interesting to have headphones. Not murderers of all living things, as some of them positioned, but in its category — a very, very good, especially if they are your stylistic preferences. Supplements is a reasonable price («brands» such SCH are more expensive) and comfortable enough and stylish design.
