  • Summary: The Ortofon e-Q5 is an easy-to-drive low impedance single balanced armature driver designed by Ortofon themselves. It uses OFC cables and the shells are aluminium CNC-ed.   As with most Japanese products, presentation is important and the e-Q5 doesn't disappoint.
  • Pros: Tube-like earphones, reasonably priced
  • Cons: Available only in Japan (ex-grey market)

  • Summary: (Pictures can be found in the thread)       The Ortofon e-Q5 was a very uber popular headphone for a short period time, that is until bigger and better IEM’s took the market by storm, like the Westone 4 and the Earsonics SM3.
  • Pros: Sweet midrange - extended highs - spacious soundstage
  • Cons: Bass is lacking - can be a little too mid-centric for some

  • Summary: This "moving armature" descendant of the Ortofon e-Q7 makes no sacrifices in terms of quality, despite being introduced at a more affordable price point. The introduction of a new cord and strain relief system help tame microphonics and make the model easy to wear both down and over the ear.
  • Pros: very transparent, low sibilance, excellent build and sound quality
  • Cons: no cord cinch, large housing, no case included

  • Summary: much like their cartridges, I find ortofon to 'have a sound'. I enjoy it for the most part, but ultimately would rather listen to a less invasive, more natural sound that doesn't color my record collection.
  • Pros: unique sound
  • Cons: fit, price

  • Excerpt: К ним не нужно докупать никаких усилителей, наушники уже выдают отличный звук. Думаю, благодаря простой конструкции и прямому выходу провода случайное выдёргивание наушников где-нибудь в толпе в метро не приведёт к их обрыву, но вот провода тонкие.
  • Pros: Приятное звучание во всём диапазоне, клипса, конструкция наушников
  • Cons: Прямой штекер, хлипкий провод в разветвлении

  • Excerpt: Обидно, использовал бережно. Надеялся на японское качество...
  • Pros: Отличный звук, детализация инструментов.
  • Cons: Стало шуметь правое ухо через 6 месяцев, сдал по гарантии. Починить не смогли.

  • Excerpt: Звучание очень качественное. Сначала показалось, что недостаточно басов, но потом понял, что их столько, сколько нужно. Слышно каждый инструмент, ничего смешивается в кашу, хорошая сцена. В ушах сидят хорошо, дискомфорта нет. Очень качественный шнурок.
  • Pros: Качественное звучание, качественное исполнение, дизайн.
  • Cons: Слишком большой кейс для переноски, недостаточная шумоизоляция.
