Sound – Jet 1
Above I hinted at above, JET 1 is easy to listen to over and again. You can practically rinse and repeat any genre, at any time, for any length of time, without fatigue. Part of that has to do with the balance between bass volume and its physical weight. Part of it has to do with an otherwise generally good balance through the mids and highs.
JET 1’s bass makes a big sound but doesn’t follow through with hammering, crazy pressure. I think I’ve previously used the metaphor of a billow of smoke (or wish I had). It’s kind of stinky to relate JET 1’s bass to a billow of smoke, but there are correlations. A billow of smoke is big and puffy, but stays gentle on the breeze. As a result, I can’t think of a better way to put it. JET 1’s bass goes low. Really low. You hear it. It will even yawn at the start of Marcus Schulz’s Mainstage. But it won’t beat you down and down and down some more with intense pressure that makes it a specialty earphone.
Despite this, it shows generally good low-frequency channel separation and texture detail. Don’t believe me? I’m not talking in riddles, I swear. Try JET 1. Just you try defining its big, but light bass better than I have.
It’s a casual, pleasurable basshead earphone, with as little and as much pressure as needed to keep a person listening and listening without fatigue.
Despite this, it carries on a damn good, sometimes emotional midrange crowned by crisp vocals. It’s truly amazing how well and clearly they stick out next to such a voluminous, billowy bass. Like its bass, its midrange is characterised by air, air, and more air. I’m not going to suggest that it sounds like a more expensive earphone, but I can firmly say that it sounds about as good as a 79$ earphone can.
Highs follow midrange pressure. They are clear, pretty open, and loud enough next to bass and midrange to skew to the neutral side of a gentle U signature.
