BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Rock Jaw Audio Alfa Genus V2

Hello and welcome to another installment of the Bus Ride Impression. As we find ourselves time to contemplate, I found this to be an opportunity to get myself to enjoy some really good music and gear and I happen to receive the Rock Jaw Audio Alfa Genus V2. This isn’t exactly a new IEM and has been out for about a year now, but this has sparked interest for some given the tuning options it comes along in the package. I suspected this to fit a lot of new audio enthusiasts in the market given it price and its capability so I am giving it a go in today’s review.

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Venture Electronic Zen 2.0

No other earbud has been famed or hyped as the Zen. For a couple of years now, Venture Electronics has been the go to source of excellent sounding earbuds without breaking the bank, and VE has proven this with their first edition of the Monks. The Monk has quite become the benchmark for quality earbuds given it’s less than a bucket of KFC Hot & Crispy chicken price and stellar sound quality. So when VE decided to come up with their TOTL earbuds, it was no wonder that people raved for it. I mean, come on, if the Monk has been quite a sensation, what would you expect for something worth several multiples of its price? Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Venture Electronic Zen 2.0”

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Earbuds Battle Royale: Above $100 Earbuds

Boy am I glad the week is finally over. With much load at work, I think I deserve nothing but to relax and to calm meself. You see, as I pointed out in the last installment of BRI, the past 2 weeks has been quite savage to me to the point that I missed using my gear. My desktop setup finds me estranged to it, while my portables has been sitting at the bottom of my bag untouched. I think I deserve some time with them now that the crazy weeks are over (I hope so).

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Earbud Battle Royale: $40-$100 Earbuds

Whew! The past weeks has been quite challenging for me with a lot of things I have been busy with (vendor meetings, sister coming home from abroad, etc.) so you must understand me for being a bit inactive over the past two weeks. I implore you this, as much as my regular dose of 2 to 3 BRIs in a week dwindled to just one for the past 2 weeks, believe that I missed doing this.

I MISS MY COLUMN! Darn, there, I have said it. And I know for a fact that only music can tame the beast inside me, so you must realize that the past two weeks has been quite nerve-wrecking for me.

BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7

I had this coming. Fact is, this is long overdue as I have always wanted to have this in one of my Bus Ride Impressions, but was unable to given the onslaught of items to review over the holidays. Plus I have no one to borrow this from. And the wallet already underwent several cardiac arrests due to the holidays so I practically have no budget for one. And the Chief Finance Officer (a.k.a. wife) will no longer allow me to get another one.

So I had to sit this one out. Continue reading “BUS RIDE IMPRESSION: Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7”
