Monk Plus Buying Guide
it is a 5usd earbud for god sake, so one week warranty should be good. which means, we will do some about the monk if they are broken within 7days of its arrival, I don’t care if u used them or not, that is simply the rules. If guys won’t follow my rule, i will of course, block whoever for life, and yes, if one open a dispute against me on AE for some BS, chances are they might even win and get a full refund, I don’t even care of course, I will just block those a-holes for life.
our fee on AE is shipping and handling fees , I meant , it is a 5usd earbud, and we learnt from our past mistakes , we will be shipping with boxes even just for one unit, but the shipping fee is raised a bit higher on AE, so u r paying for shipping and handling fees guys, plz don’t ask me why the fuck this shit is not as heavy as we charge for its shipping, cuz we need to pay our new shipping-girl, she is awesome, she is not from this town , and she might even get married and have nice baby , so we need to treat nice so that she will treat u nice and I won’t have to get pissed all day cuz our other team members are helpless in this kind of job…… and I will admit i am the worst among them lol
The Monk Plus is back!!!!! WARNING(again lol) This is the only official store of Venture Electronics, We are a small time Hi-Fi brand with ATTITUDE. I will personally block and blacklist anyone who start a “DISPUTE” without email me first. Update: if you ordered with AE shipping, u can start a dispute if the package is not there in 60days, AE will take care of you. I believe in doing business with the code of ethics, not Aliexpress seller rule book~ We are here to serve serious audio enthusiast only. How do you know if you are an Audio Junkie? Here is a simple question: How do you know if you are a genuine audio enthusiast? Which of the following statements is true about certain brand of headphones by Dr Dre A) They are shit B) makes for a good pet C) strictly a decoration piece D) good earmuffs in the winter E) a toilet paper has better treble extension than those headphones F) best headphones ever If you think F is the correct answer, then u have fail this test and the Monk is not for you. For everybody else that wanna know more about it here is all the info you will ever need on head-fi I will quote some from there (by DJ scope) +++++ SOUND +++++ You maybe sitting there and asking, “But, Igor! Where exactly are all of my $5 really going?”, and the answer is here. This is where all the fu‘ss is located. The Monk is by far the best earbud I’ve heard to date, and yes, I’ve been hearing a lot about VE’s TOTL earbud the VE Zen, but I have not yet auditioned it and my statement stays true at the moment of me writing this review. The way I like to describe the VE Monk sounds is like listening to decent bookshelf speakers, or maybe even a full sized open headphone. To describe the Monk in a few words, it would be: natural, organic, open, immersing and detailed. The overall sound signature is quite balanced, somewhat low to mid fi in terms of clarity, and with a really awesome soundstage that is very immersing and natural. +++++ TREBLE +++++ Treble is clear and present, without any noticeable peaks or dips. It’s detailed enough to get pops and static, but a little cloudy in the lower regions. No sibilance what so ever, even in sibilant prone tracks. Cymbals shimmer but are a little smoothed. The treble maybe a little slow but it’s enjoyable. +++++ MIDS +++++ Mids are maybe just a tad forward but mostly neutral. They are full and warm but can get a slightly chesty, but not too much and can get a little shouty at high volumes. Vocals and acoustics is where the Monks really shine with it’s smooth and organic timber for both female and male vocals. Dare I say that there is a little bit of the Grado sound going on here. The transition from the bass and to the treble is impeccable and extremely smooth. +++++ BASS +++++ The bass is great and very impressive for an earbud. There is a lot of warmth that fills the whole spectrum. Mid and upper bass is very neutral and is reasonable fast and punchy. Of course, because you cannot really get a proper seal with an earbud, this means that the bass rolls off quite dramatically after around 100Hz, so sub-bass frequencies are loss completely, even at high volumes. +++++ Soundstage & Imaging +++++ You get the full concert experience when you listen to live recordings, especially orchestral recordings. The soundstage is really wide and deep, but in a very natural way. I don’t really know how to put my finger on it, but I think there’s some kind of resonance or reverb going on that makes them sound super open and very accurate and articulate in placement. This is probably what I’m mostly fond about with the Monk, as I am a huge sucker for great imaging.
